    Alas, I can't get it to work. It keeps telling me that I haven't activated it on my device...which I have. Has anyone else had success on their DX?

    I tried but it didn't work for me either. I suspect the failure rate will exactly track the Market Web failure rate. I'll bet they are using the same mechanism.

    I haven't used App Brain much since the Market updated to the new platform.

    Don't understand why people are still using AppBrain now

    Since the Web Market doesn't work for me and it was announced AppBrain was back, it was worth a try. I like AppBrain better than the Web Market from an interface standpoint. I can't comment on functionality.

    Ya. I suppose it never hurts. I actually am the opposite. I never really liked AppBrain b/c of the interface. The sleek/clean look of google's online market has drawn me in for sure. :cool:

    Totally agree with the Market vs Appbrain comments, but I do wish that the Market would allow filtering, sorting by rating, etc.

    appbrain is much better than the official market. all there is on the official market front page all the time is the all time best selling apps that never change. on appbrain you can filter by what's popular today or this week or this month to find cool new apps

    +1. Coincidentally about the same time I quit using it. :D

    I still keep my AppBrain account and sync it everytime I flash a new ROM or do a wipe. Great way to keep track of all of your apps IMO. Why would I stop using it, is there something similar/better out there?

    I guess it might be a personal preference but I MUCH preferred looking online for apps, comparing them to others and then choosing to install through the Appbrain.com website....

    Yes it works like a champ too. I prefer it over appbrain. Matter of fact, I don't like that appbrain now has ads in it. Unless it always did and I just can't remember.

    But even though I'm rooted and blocking ads, it still comes through. Never cared for the fast web install either.

    Android market ftw imho.

    Call me crazy but has this recently (and by "recent" I mean in the past 3 or 4 months) been updated so that we can sign in and install from the site?? For some reason I remember visiting this site over the summer and just kinda being able to browse?? I don't recall being able to install...:thinking:

    Awesome, I love AppBrain! Nothing better than surfing the web with my phone in my locker in a different building and still be able to install apps onto it, it's fun to show that off to my friends with iPhones!

    Yes, just a recent thing. Guess they liked appbrain so much the copied them. :D

    Haha maybe. But I think Google has had this in the works for awhile. It sure is a nice feature, and something the i*hone can't do!
