    I have a Droid X2 running 2.3.3, and when I search the android market on my phone for many apps or games, they don't show up in the results.

    However, when I access the android market from a pc, they all show up.

    What's the issue? Has anyone else had problems with this?

    Usually that means that those particular apps don't work with the version of Android your using. Your phone's market only shows the apps you can use.

    That would make sense. However, the phone came with a demo of Lets Golf 2 on it. I uninstalled that right when I got the phone. Now I can't even find the full version of that game in the app store. Surely that game works with my phone.

    I don't see it in the market at all, not even on PC.

    edit: Ah, found it. It's not on AM, it's on Gameloft.

    Alright. Well that just about solves it. Thanks.

    Out of curiosity. Are gameloft games compatible with all android devices?

    You have to click the "Buy" button, then you enter your device info, THEN it will tell you if it's compatible.
