    I'm having a really hard time trying to find anything of any use in the market. I've been trying to do 2 things all morning, and have accomplished nothing so far.

    First, I want to download meebo for my eris. I go to the market and once I find it, i click it and it forwards me to meebo's site. I click to download it on their site and it forwards me back to the market, its a neverending loop!

    Second, how do you find a specific app on the market without clicking through every single page until you find an icon that looks like it might be what you are looking for? im trying to search for apps, but I can not find a way to search directly from their page. I can do it through google, but its a major P.I.T.A.

    There is probably a simple solution to both of my problems and I am just too frustrated to figure it out on my own.

    Thanks!

    Use the search feature. Use EbuddyIM in place of Meebo.

    i just figured it out.

    i was going to market.android.com instead of using the market app thats already in the phone.

    what makes EbuddyIM better than meebo?

    Truthfully, don't know. Just like it better IMO. I grew onto EbuddyIM and tried Meebo for awhile, but reverted back to Ebuddy.
