    OK I'm sure there must be a v simple explanation for this but i aint got a clue...

    I am trying to get my first app (astrid) and i go to the market select it and start download and the little icon in the top left starts (HTC Desire) and then nothing...waited 20 mins and nothing shows in my apps - is there a setting i need to turn on or something??


    1. Download the Forums for Android™ app!


  2. Sounds like you doing everything right. Marketplace has been playing up for the last 2 days on my desire too. I would download something and the icon comes on the top left saying so then it would vanish and nothings been downloaded.

    The way I got round it was I would cancel the download then tried downloading it again.

    If restarting the download doesn't work, cancel it, force-close the Market app, then run it and try downloading again. Worked for me.
