    I was just browsing through the market on the Incredible and saw that Amazon's MP3 Store is now listed. It was lame that they excluded it in the first place, but I'm glad to see it has arrived. It's version 1.7.63, which I believe is an updated version that was released around the same time as froyo for the Nexus One. It's a pretty awesome app for those who like their music DRM free. :D

    By box thing do you mean the QR Bar code? if so you, install bar code scanner or similar on the phone, and then scan the image, and it will take you to the website/market page of the product, so you can install it

    Haha well there isn't anything particularly special about the amazon mp3 app I guess other then the fact that it was excluded from the market on the incredible. It's nice to be able to legally buy music on the go. I personally dislike the proprietary file formats and copy protection used by other online rmusic retailers such as itunes.

    As for the box you speak of, that's a QR code. You can scan them with your phone using google goggles or bar code scanner and they take you to a website, or in this case the android market. You can make qr codes for urls or any text really. Search for qr "code generator" on google and you can try it out yourself.

    ugh, where the hell is the default destination for downloads? i just bought an album and downloaded it, yet i have -no- idea where it is, and i've looked using Linda Manager and ASTRO. can't find any of the 12 tracks i just downloaded :(

    of course, the default media player sees the files, but DoubleTwist and bTunes don't. *sigh*

    Sounds like it's probably somewhere on the main hard drive. I believe that DoubleTwist can't read off the main drive like the stock player can.

    You can find the mp3 downloaded to amazonmp3 folder on sd card if you are using the amazon mp3 app and Astro.

    You can tell it to save to the sd card if you hit menu--->settings---> and then tell it to look for the sd card first.
