Tip: Froyo Market Now Suggests Apps

As you can see from the two screenies above, Froyo being on the left and 2.1 on the right, one of the new features of Android 2.2 is app suggestions for misspelled words in the Market.  Pretty handy right?  I’m actually surprised it took this long seeing as Google is known for well, being a top notch search engine.

Any other tips out there for the Froyo leak we gave to you yesterday?

Cheers Scott!

    THIS HASNT HAPPENED TO ME ..

    Kellex,

    Since I have not seen any posted comments here yet, I just want to point out the recent problem that some apps in the Android Market are having with Froyo 2.2. They seem to disappear from the Market or do not get reinstalled from Google.
    It happened to me with a few paid apps such as (HiFi Recording, Documents to go, etc.) and some free ones i.e. (LiveBible)
    See the following article:

    seriously. This has been a really frustrating issue. we should also be able to sort better and exclude things like soundboards in the search

    Will I need to re-activate my droid after I install Froyo via ROM manager?

    I ask because right now I am stuck at the activate screen on my droid. I just installed the 2.1 with root access and did not realize I would need to activate my phone again until it was too late.

    Activating is a problem since I live in Alaska. Verizon uses ACS networks and towers up here. At one point verizon mailed me a new droid after my screen went goofy. Since the phone was not activated, I had to mail it to a store in Seattle to activate.

    Any chance I can pay you guys to take my phone to froyo?

    If I mail my phone to a friend in the lower 48 they could activate it for me, but they wouldn't have the know how to take it from where it is now to Froyo. And I wouldn't want to have to mail it down again if I need to activate it again after installing Froyo via ROM manager.

    Thanks for all the info and everything on the site,

    Steve

      YES YOU WILL HAVE TO REACTIVATE IT SO I SUGGEST THAT YOU DONT DO IT IF YOUR GOING TO HAVE PROBLEMS .

      YOU WONT BE ABLE TO ROOT IT JUST YET UNTIL DEVS MAKE A ROOT FOR IT . YOU MIGHT AS WELL DOWNLOAD THE FROYO LEAK IF YOUR ALREADY ROOTED

  • Mapes0725

    • $creamDROID

  • azurikai

  • iammebane

    • $creamDROID

      LIKE I TOLD MLOPEZ , TEAM CHAOS BLACK THEME HAVING MARKET ISSUES

    Since updating to Froyo last night several of my apps aren't around anymore (and when I look for them on the market they don't show up).

    I mentioned this to one of the app devs and he grumbled about people installing 2.2 before it was actually supported which makes me think I'm not the only one (and folks have mentioned similar issues here).

    Anyone figure out a way to fix this? Is there something in the apps that keeps them from showing up in the 2.2 market? I tried clearing the cache/data for the market app but to no avail :(

    • machinegun68

      Noticed the same thing. I understand their frustration, but it's coming. So what happens when real Froyo drops this weekend? Then what do the devs do?

    • $creamDROID

      YOU WERE SUPPOST TO WIPE DATA AND CACHE

  • Kriven4437

    i cant even download from the market since 2.2 yesterday whats up?

  • EggoEspada

    Nice.
    Was hoping they'd do this soon…

  • jt

    is there any way to get sprecovery unflashed on ur phone?

  • Dale

    I cant download anything from the market since putting 2.2 on…..any suggestions?

  • jutley

    Market isn't working for me on the froyo build from yesterday. It worked on and off yesterday but not today at all.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=679610144 Brian Banach

    Is anyone else having a problem with market not downloading or updating things?

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=679610144 Brian Banach

      Found out it was all caused by the team chaos simple black theme

    • Dales Droid88

      So do i just reboot again with the 2.2?

      • brianbrutalness

        yeah just go back to the stock 2.2 in rom manager

  • My Name Here

    I'd like to suggest an app! lol. I'm in no way affiliated with the dev but I have yet to see it mentioned here on droid-life. Its called LEDs Hack. Sorry root users only, but what this little app does is give you a little more control over LEDs of your droid. Personally i have it set to turn the bottom LEDs off when i have my phone in the moto dock. always bugged me that those stayed on. works on the stock froyo, but had issues with it on BB and Cyanogen. worth looking into …

    • AndroidDoes

      it's a must have if you don't want your notification lights flashing all night while docked at your bed side

      • machinegun68

        I agree. First thing I noticed that night when I plugged it into the dock was it when dimmer than usual with an entirely different looking clock. Love it.

    • My Name Here

      Exactly … Thats one of the few things i hated about using the droid as my alarm clock! since i was running BB and Cyanogen for the longest time i couldnt run this app properly. now on “stock” froyo i'm back in control. i wish Pete or Koush could some how put this feature into their roms … HINT HINT

    • http://twitter.com/BrianBrick Brian Brick

      First of all that app has appeared on droid-life in the past, I picked it up here, and second, with stock froyo, it is no longer necessary. If you just press the brightness button on the dock screen the bottom LEDs turn off. Gotta love froyo

      • timarnette

        You are correct just press the brightness button on the dock and it is turned off.

    • Br_d

      It's mentioned in the “how to root” article with the big banner on the right.

      http://www.droid-life.com/2010/05/06/guide-to-r

      scroll to the bottom

  • Cj

    • okland272012

      wireless teather for root users…works great

    • http://www.myspace.com/abrielband Tim-o-tato

      Root Explorer…

    • chaozu

      Titanium back up as well…

    • SchmittyThePirate
  • Ace Z.

    The Froyo ROM is great. I've had a few minor problems with no complaints, but what got me a little frustrated was that some of my apps weren't working anymore and I just re-installed BB 1.1. Other than that, its great and everybody should try it out its really fast.

  • Cyberdemon

    Hmmm, just like google.com. Imagine that :P

  • J.smith

    My market isn't downloading either

  • Steve

    No wifi tether for the latest froyo leak included. Isn't that something that should be in the official update? Other than that I love it.

    • Hex

      Since the latest leak of Froyo is an actual test build it was probably takin out. We are pretty sure VZW will not include wifi tether in the Froyo update. If they do it would most likely come with an additional monthly fee.

  • ajavgeek

    A question on Market:
    If I install an app and uninstall it, in Downloads are it still sits as “Free” and does not go away from Downloads page. Does any one know how to get rid of it? Thx

    • jstell

      Turn your phone off and back on. It fixed a problem I had with the market.

      • Cj

        tried that multiple times did not work i am attempting to un-theme now since it worked fine until i did that

      • ajavgeek

        K, that solved it. Thanks. One more Q: Maps is installed on my Droid but when I goto Downloads it shows as Free and allows me to Install. When I do that, I get an error “Package file was not signed correctly”

        I can use Maps without any issues (version 4.2.0 #4209). Not sure what is going on

        Thanks for the help

  • jstell

    Does anyone else's market not show all of their installed apps in the download list anymore (on Froyo)?

    • jstell

      I restarted my phone and now the market is working fine. weird.

  • Paul

    the market won't let me download anything it just says starting download

    • jroc

      Same here

      • jroc

        Yes and yes

        • Paul

          yea. same as jroc

          • Cj

            same prob here newest froyo, 1250 kernal, black theme, wont download apps

          • Vince

            Same here, anyone figure this out?

          • Cj

            SUCCESS! i was running the black chaos mod theme i restored from the backup i made before i installed it now the market seems to be working fine

    • SkillZ360

      Paul are you running the most current leak of Froyo and did you theme it?

  • http://www.myspace.com/abrielband Tim-o-tato

    Damn this…..2nd lol

    • Adrian

      Its busy eating froyo, its hungry lol

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Shane-Boddie/100000596311988 Shane Boddie

      Looks like that virus we sent to ur computer is working…I've said too much.

  • Adrian

    First. Can't wait for legit froyo

    • kellex

      The improvements to it are minor, but they make the overall experience so much greater than the flashy updates we saw in 2.1.

      • miosis

        Froyo is by far the most significant update. I can't believe I waited as long as I did to load the leaked ROM. What a waste of life those few days I went without it.

        • kellex

          Haha welcome to Froyo.

      • Adrian

        Faster performance in apps and browser + flash is what I want. Maybe I'll be able to run lwp smoothly with the speed boost.

    • iplay88keys

      Same here

    • picaso86

      unfortunately, I had to flash back to BB V10. – my phone kept rebooting every 10 mins…. :[
