    For some reason, I am unable to install Launcher Pro on my Moment. When I search for it in the market (I've tried searching under Launcher Pro, Launcherpro, Launcher Pro Beta, etc.), the search comes back with no results. I have tried installing it through AppBrain, but when it searches for the app, again nothing appears. I have tried accessing the LauncherPro website from my phone, and my browser will not let me even access the website. The link appears on google, but when I click it, my phone tells me that the web page that I am trying to access can not be opened. The only way I can access it is by viewing the cached version. From there, I tried downloading the "APK" file, but when it actually comes time to installing it onto my phone, it says that I am unable to install it onto my phone.

    I made sure that my phone is up to date on the newest version of Android, so I know that is not the problem.

    Can someone help me install this app?

    Thank you for reading, and have a nice day!!

    Are you running the official 2.1 from Sprint?

    Is it possible that the launcher Pro website was just temporarily down?

    edit. I just went to the market and grabbed it and verified it's the latest version 0.6.3 and it worked fine. I'm runnign a custom rom though so it may be different for you.

    Try the website again.

    The phone came directly from Sprint with 2.1 on it, so I guess that that's the official version. And I think the LauncherPro website is working, because I can access it from my home computer.

    Thank you for verifying that it is running, I guess I'll just keep trying

    There is a link on the website to download the file. Did you try manually downloading it and putting it on your SD card and then installing with a file manager?

    I just tried. The file launcher recognizes that the Launcher Pro file is on the card, but when I choose to install it, it says:

    Application not installed
    LauncherPro could not be installed on this phone.

    Any ideas, or is it a lost cause? Again, I really appreciate your help.

    What file manager are you using?

    I use OI File manager and it works great for me. I think Astro File manager is pretty popular too. Try one of those to install it. They're both free in the market. I don't think you'll have much luck with the file manager that comes with it.

    If that ever happens again, you just go into settings>applications>manage apps and clear the defaults in the launcher pro app.

    I *think* that's the location of it, I don't have my phone on hand right this second to look it up. ;)
