    So i was waching some of the live coverage and i seen the new online market wich made me think of some questions. I seen that it gives you the option on device installs i read that for each new phone you get you have to rebuy the app is this true even if it is registered to the same google account. Also if i buy a app then uninstall will i have to repurchase. One more question that might not have a awnser yet, what if i put the market on a tablet that doesnt have it will it still show on the device list one the android market. Sorry for all the dumb questions.

    Looks awesome!!
    Home - Android Market
    Can anyone sign in? I can't, it's telling me "Invalid Request."
    I'm really looking forward to using this though.

    New Market on the web, in-app buying, and a new Phancast with a link to watch today's Honeycomb Event.

    Can you login to their webstore yet? I get an "invalid request" error when trying to login.

    I'm in and it's showing my installed apps. (The invalid request is rolling back, if you see this, just re-try in a little bit.)

    edit1 - I've just sent a Chrome-to-phone of an app I kept forgetting to d/l...

    edit2 - OK, it's a little buggy -

    • Security certificate error on my phone - showed details - google.com doesn't match android.com - I was ok with that, so I proceeded.
    • Hit the Install button on the app page I sent over - it detected that I wasn't signed in, gave me a dialog to complete that - so far, so good
    • Got a dialog saying there was no device associated with my account - went back to the market on the desktop -> market account -> settings -> "Don't see your device?"
      • They're telling me that either my device isn't in there yet, or it's not my primary account, or I've not accessed the Market from my device recently.
      • Uh - ok. So, using Market app, just downloaded (then erased) Newegg Mobile.
      • Actually - reading their help page - they say to access the Market with the app, then re-try the web...
    • No soap so far on that download...

    edit3 - Cleared cache - still nada. Even tried turning on Talk. Will just try again later. I _know_ I associated a phone with my Google account somewhere... Chrome-to-phone? Maps? Market? It's been too long...

    This web market is long overdue. Thanks for posting. BTW I was able to get in.

    I can sign in and I picked a few free apps to sync with my phone just to test it out. Didn't seem to work.

    I can sign in. I've tried three separate apps to install. None of them have worked. It has also shown that I have some apps installed, that I do NOT have installed (but did at some point in the past).

    I am rooted (SR 3.5). I also note that ChromeToPhone takes forever to push to my phone, that might have something to do with it. I could never figure out why.

    It's taking longer than usual, and that's not saying much for Chrome-to-phone.

    I suspect this is a case of everyone banging their servers right about now - just guessing tho.

    These are Google's servers though. They're not known for wimpy servers. I'm running a custom ROM so it's entirely possible it's on my end. I'm reserving judgement for the moment.

    No doubt - they're not wimpy. That said - we've all seen times when the Market just goes dark for a while.

    Earlier today, seems everyone was reporting the login problem - I'm hoping this is all just some update glitch on their side - I'm rooted, but running a custom rom...
  14. A.Nonymous

    A.Nonymous Extreme Android User

    This is true. I'm wondering if the issue is the custom ROM I'm running and not the market.

    So has anyone successfully installed an app from the web Marketplace? Are you stock or rooted? Engadget reports that they were successful.

    My Account -> Settings says there's no devices associated with my account. That's on the desktop, reflecting their db view of me - so it's not phone related in my case.

    The help pointer from there says:

    K... it's correct.

    My account shows all apps installed/bought et cetera.
    Very cool.

    On the website when I click to view My Market Account it only shows 20 apps there...but I have MANY more on my phone (that I downloaded through the market). When browsing apps there are some that I already have that it has an "Install" button instead of "Installed"

    I just queued an app from my desktop and waited a moment.
    Turned the phone on and saw the "Installed" notification.

    I am in love.

    And are you rooted?

    I noticed in my settings in the Marketplace, my phone is listed, and says it was registered and last used on Dec 16, 2010, which is the last time I was installing some new ROMs. This is obviously wrong since I use and sync it constantly every day. So I'm thinking my custom ROM is causing my phone to not communicate properly with the Marketplace.

    I will have to:

    1. Do nothing and install my old way.
    2. Remove my custom ROM and try it. (probably not worth it).
    3. Find a new ROM that will work with the new marketplace.

    I'll probably go with #1 since this feature isn't that necessary for me. I'm just bummed that this was working with Appbrain for me, but Google broke that functionality.

    FWIW -

    I'm never signed in to Talk. OK, signed in to that (again today), now doing a Sync All.

    My phone's rooted - wife's is not - hers is working. My last rom install was 8/3 (hey - it works, I've been happy) but the market is showing my last install at 8/10. I cleared cache and data on the Market, downloaded an app, sync'd all Google and that's about it for now.

    Next step will be to delete my Gmail account, and add it when the Market complains... meanwhile, I'm going to wait maybe a half day or day from here before doing that.

    Not working on my phone which is rooted. Does work on my Nook which is also rooted. It doesn't look like it's talked to my phone since 1/17. I wonder if I can wipe the phone's account from the Market and re-sync. I have browsed the market from my phone today so the market still works from my phone. Very confusing. I think it has something to do with the ROM I'm running.

    So i see this is working on nooks. Is your nook listed under your devices? I was thanking about buying a coby kyros MID7015 untill i can afford a better tablet, wonder if this would work if the market and Gtalk was added, wich i belive it can be.
