    My sister has the captivate and she can't download apps from the market anymore. It's not rooted, btw. It starts the download, and then it shows it in the notification panel thing, but then it goes away after like two seconds. When you go to "my apps" it shows up, but it's still not installed...We've tried restarting it, and nothing is working....Any suggestions?

    It started working again, but then it stopped working again....Does anyone know what the problem might be?

    My phone has doing the same thing - Sometimes I have to redownload the app like 5 times before it ACTUALLY downloads.... no idea what's going on.

    I'm running Serendipity 6.2, although that will likely change tonight...

    So, it is a matter of the apps are downloaded and you are having trouble auto-installing? Or you are having a problem finding/launching the app, even though it shows up in your MyApps list as being 'Installed'? Are the apps being accessed via the Market on the phone or from a PC?

    When Google first launched the web version of the Android Market, my Captivate was able to download apps but it wouldn't auto-install as advertised. I had to manually install them on my phone. I found that by logging into the market via the web on my laptop, this problem corrected itself.

    no okay when you try to download an app, it shows up in the notification bar for like 3 seconds, then just disappears. She's getting the apps from her phone. And it won't even download. And it doesn't show up as installed, but it shows up as giving you the option to install it.

    I've tried clearing data and cache, I've tried signing out of Google Talk (and disabling auto-sign in), I just can't seem to figure out the problem...
