    Hey, I bought an app in the past called MP3 Premium Downloader. It was 9.99, and I bought it roughly...5 or 6 months ago on my former Mytouch Slide. I just got the LG G2X, and it's not showing up a previously purchased app, and is not available again (Probably, because it was taken down by Google, or the developer I'd assume?)...So now what?

    I rarely used it (I use Rhapsody now), but at the same time, I paid 10 bucks for it, and now it's not even an option. Any way to redownload it, or get a refund?

    you're only bet at this point would be to email the developer and see what's up. Maybe you can track the contact info down via Google

    Sounds as if the program was borderline illegal from its name; don't expect the developer to give you your money back. Make a backup of your applications next time.

    Or if you still have your original device, you should be able to back it up with Astro, ES File Explorer, or one of the other apps that will backup other apps. You can then sideload it on the new device.

    There may be complications in your situation though.
