    My wife's Evo has it but I do not, not sure of the rhyme or reason other than she's still running 2.2 (froyo) as I am on 2.3 (Gingerbread)

    Try going to settings.... Aplications.... Manage Aplications and find the market..... Once there force stop it and when you open it agIn you should see the new market.... But if that don't work go back and clear the data and force stop it

    I cannot stress how HORRIBLE the new Market is. First off, they have removed the setting that allows you to toggle on/off the notifications in Market. I have several applications that I refuse to update for various reasons. This new market harasses me every hour by sending me a notification telling me there are updates available. I want to throw my phone through the wall each time!!!! If you uninstall the updates, the stupid marketupdater re-downloads the new market within five minutes!!!!

    The only workaround I have found is that after I update the apps that I do want to update, I go into application settings, then to market. I uninstall updates, then clear the cache and settings. The next time you enter market, it asks you to accept the terms and conditions. If you decline, market is not active, thus you are spared from the constant update notifications!!! I just pray that they restore the toggle feature soon. What I want to know is, why was it taken away in this version of market???

    I still have the "old" market, but having issues. When I open market, the main screen says "no matching content in Android Market". I then go to Apps, All Applications. In Top Paid, I only get about 20 in the list. In Top Free, I get the "no matching content in Android Market". I get that same message in all of the categories for Games. Anyone else seeing this? Also, if I search for apps, if it's a general search like "Alarm", I only get 3 - 5 returns for the search. If I search specific apps such as Beautiful Widgets, it's hit and miss. Some show up, others I get the no content message. :thinking:

    Yup, tried several times. Thank you. Guess I will just wait for the update on my phone and go to the market online.

    Thanks guys for the insight. I still don't have the new market, and after hearing all the trouble it's been giving some people I might not want it any ways. I kept getting the same "no matching content in Android Market" as well. That's why I was looking to see if Evo got the new market update.

    I was forced to do a factory reset :(. First one since I got it last OCT. I still have the old market on there, but now it seems to work. :eek:. Lets try to keep this thread going, I like the look of the new market ( my father in law has the Thunderbolt with the new market on it.), lets just hope they keep up on the bug fixes as well as roll outs.

    If anyone has any new info, please chime in here.

    I've had it for about 2 weeks. Not a fan. I see some huge ads all the time now (they load before any content for me...). And does anyone really buy movies through the market?

    Do you know if it's actually performing 'better' or do you believe the bigger version # must mean it's better?

    I envy you. I would pay good money to revert back to the old market. Consider yourself lucky, and immediately cease from trying to get it to update!

    Maybe it's just me (and I know the market search feature isn't quite up on par...) but does the new market search worse for anyone esle? I seached "ad free" and the Ad-Free app was on page two, after the Facebook app, and the FB Message app.

    Yeah, I'm not sold on it either. It doesn't seem optimized for handhelds. I imagine that on a tab it's much nicer. On evos, The app title, icon, and download progress takes up about a third of the screen real estate. That's too much in my opinion. Makes reading reviews a bit more of a pain.
