    Because Boost in their almighty knowledge decided to block us from getting those apps from the market. If you get the Amazon appstore you can get those apps from there or you can download an app called Market Enabler if you have root and change your provider code for the market. I use Sprint its number is 31002. Then you will see all the apps you weren't previously able to download.

    Google Goggles is the only one that in reality can not work, it requires an autofocus camera.


    other wise what purponic said.
