(Eris) Reason - Missing Apps from the Market
Contributor - Level 3

I'm not sure if this was posted, but the missing application issue for the Eris and the newly patched Hero has to do with Copy Protected applications. It doesn't matter if it's a free or paid application. If the author has the app identified as "copy protected" in the application XML manifest, then the app will not appear in the market.


Most developers already know this and some have added "custom" non-protected apps to the market until whomever owns the issue fixes it... I dont know what entails this flag, but developers cannot just re-publish their apps with this disabled as it will mess up existing users not having market issues.


Here is one example of a forum discussion for DoggCatcher. http://www.snoggdoggler.com/node/486#comment-1448
