    I just went into Music junk app on my phone and it wouldn't work, so I tried looking it up on the market and it was gone! Does anyone know what happened to it?

    I don't see it in the market any longer. I can start the app, but a search always results in a "network error", which is funny because their ads show up at the bottom of the screen just fine, so it would seem that their network works fine...

    Same here. Network error on all searches. Using a droid eris with 1.5 software. Does it still work for some who have different software?

    The ads run off a different server. All the dev does is enter code to the javascript in their app, and then the ads run from the ad server.

    To be fair, you can't blame Google; technically those music downloads were, well... not legal, I don't think.

    Do what I do. Search for the song you want through Tube Downloader and download as MP3. :) Since Tube Downloader relies on youtube's servers, even if it was taken off the market, it'll always be usable unless Google shuts youtube down to spite us.

    How do get the app off of your phone? It doesn't show up in "my downloads".

    Thanks.

    edit: Nevermind. Manage applications from the settings menu can do it.

    Also most file managers can do it, like through Astro.

    Oh well, music junk and imusic were cool. But to be able to download the music, and/or just the music to your phone and save them directly to your memory card from youtube is great!

    Uh, haha, there's actually no need. Right now, you can put up your apps anywhere and let people download them, so whoever made Neo Music/iMusic/Music Junk can just open a blog and post a link, or whatever.

    Well it'd be good to have them consolidated in one place and easy to download. Of course that comes with certain risks since it would make it a god target for a lawsuit if they had mostly illegal apps.

    In hopes it was an error I didn't remove music junk from my phone yesterday just cuz of habit I think, I opened it up and was able to download music again. Music junk lives, just not through the market. If you still have it installed you should be able to use it.

    Scan this barcode with your barcode scanner app and it will give you a download link to download it. Hope this helps!!

    I used Music Junk a few days ago with no prob, but yesterday I started getting the "network error" result (though like user Squiggy I can still see the ads at the bottom of the screen). So I went back to Google Play (the new name for the Android Market - leave it to a big successful company like Google to f*** up something that works fine by renaming it with an idiotic name) and did a search for the "mp3 download" app that user darkside recommended, found "Easy MP3 Download v2" (it was first on the list) and downloaded that and did a search for the tune I wanted and it worked fine.

    Pretty stupid of Google to play games like this if you ask me. We all know it's painfully easy to download music from 1000 different sources, and when Google tries to prevent it from any one source then users will just go elsewhere as I did. Trying to keep mp3 files proprietary is like stopping the ocean with fork, and it's a waste of their own resources to even try. Apple may be the biggest company in the world, but I will never buy an iPod or iPad or iPhone because even if you own the music on it, you cant move or copy that music to your Droid or non-Apple MP3 player. I keep the same music library on my phone, my PC, my cheapo MP3 player in my car, my cheapo MP3 player on my bike, and the cheapo portable MP3 player I use for travel (all my MP3 players together were under $100 total), and it's all the same and it's easy to add a song by downloading it, then copying the same MP3 file (with a simple drag and drop using Windows Explorer) to each player one at a time. If I want to modify the library (such as renaming some songs to change the order in which they play), that's easy too, using the same simple tool, deleting the old and copying the new files over. So why do these idiotic companies always want to try to control our lives? All it makes me do is spend my money elsewhere (which is why I never buy Apple because of iTunes or Sony because of their proprietary memory stick format).

    All of my older Mucik Junk app versions no longer work.

    Has anyone used the new purchase version of Music Junk v4.2.1 (slideme website) ?
