Android Market

It's not just you -- the Android Market seems to be stalled.  We're getting reports of users unable to download, and it's pretty widespread.  We have no idea if this has something to do with changes surrounding tomorrow's Honeycomb event in San Jose, but we'll know the answer to that one soon enough, join us while we live blog it from the floor.

For now though, it doesn't look like you're going to have much luck until somebody gets a new hampster to run the wheel. [Android Central forums] Thanks Christopher!

Android Market having a hiccup


i thought it was just me but i have this problem... tried to update Handcent SMS and Google maps but it kept saying unable to download. Hope it all gets worked out...

I have been having hiccups for a few weeks now, auto updates are not working at all and I dont even get alerts that I have updates waiting for me. Tonight I saw an update and I was unable to install it, both wifi and 3G failed.

my phone isn't affected but for some reason, apps won't auto update or even notify me if i have updates to download. i checked the little box to notify me to update it and also made sure i checked every single last app to auto update (around 105 apps on my phone just to let you know in case that has something to do with it).

I just downloaded the Beautiful Widget (paid) here at South Lake Tahoe about 30 mins ago and as far as I'm concern, I got it and it's running perfectly in my Nexus One.

I was having problems downloading some updates for about an hour. After waiting a while, I tried again and it seems to be working again... at least it is working again for me...

I had an issue downloading as well, but I found a workaround that worked for me. When you try to install an app, it will place it in your "my apps" section of the market or whatever it is called. Long press the app in that list and tap install. Not sure if it works everywhere

My bet is that its the weather.

Great chunks of the US midwest are without power. Some pages (even the official google blog) load with gaps in pages etc.

AppBrain is also hozed if you try to click the "My Apps" link.

Edit: its back up now 9pm PST.

(Stock Fascinate)Tried downloading Firefox about 6 times. Kept saying it was installing then just disappeared...

At kcrave22... same here trying like crazy to dl firefox but it was all in vain cuz once i got it to dl i was very disapointed firefox sux big hairy balls!!!!!!

I had the issue last night. Haven't tried it today, but I unmounted my SD card and it worked out all the updates and loaded the app I was wanting to try.
