    Since I had so many apps listed for an update, I just tapped "Update X" where it would update all the apps that didn't require a manual update (like Facebook, Twitter, etc.). One of these apps was ShootMe, and since I read that the latest update(s) stop it from working on unrooted phones, I decided to cancel that particular update.

    So I clicked the "X" button to stop it, and it stopped. But now it's no longer listed in my apps that have an update. Instead, it's listed at the very bottom, below my installed apps, in a category called "Not installed." However, the app is still installed on my phone. Also, when I go to the app in the Market now, instead of an "Update" button, it simply says "Open."

    So if I ever do want to update this app, or for some reason cancel another update and then want to update it at a later time, how do I do it? I don't see an update option anymore once I cancel the update.

    Thanks.

    i think that the issue right now for you is that it has been pulled from the market. the only reason why you can still see it is because you still have it installed. if you were to uninstall it on your phone, you will not be able to find it on the market.

    Really? So it's just this one particular app that's doing this? Why did it get pulled?
