    Default disappearing apps(amazon) in folders

    i noticed that at times, some of the apps i d/l from amazon appstore would disappear from my homescreen folders and in the app drawer. for example angry birds rio and backbreaker football game are 2 apps i got from amazon and sometimes they would not appear in the "games" folder i created. if i reboot, then it would show up. also at times the icon would be the generic market icon instead of the app icon.

    also i noticed that sometimes i would not be able to open a folder if i tried to open it. Some minor issues, nothing major, but i just want to see if anyone else had these issues. btw, i have a stock Bolt and i am using Launcer Pro Plus.

    Same issue - Amazon app store games are showing up with the generic market icon when I put them into folders. Annoying, but doesn't break functionality. Hoping it gets fixed.

    Funny, I just was noticing the same issue and was wondering if I was going nuts. Although for me it's not EVERY game from Amazon. In my case the 2 "free for the day" Angry Birds AND the Marketplace-downloaded original Angry Birds (free version) all do it.

    The icons are fine in the app drawer, though, only wrong on a games folder I have on my home screen. (how do I tell where the folder is stored? I just made a new folder through Personalization)

    Every game that I have on my SD card has a default icon when within a folder. It's annoying and I haven't found a solution other than moving the game to phone memory. My apps and games are all downloaded from the Android Market. I don't think it's due to Amazon market since it happens with Android Market downloads too.

    Like stated above it doesn't effect functionality. But I like seeing the icons, not the default robot.

    Mine disappeared when I had the SD card mounted as a disk drive. It freaked me out for a while because they just simply looked like they were gone. Then I noticed that they came back when I remounted the SD card. That's when I figured out that Amazon puts the apps on the SD card by default.

    Same here, only the two Angry Birds do it like yours.

    It should be only games on the SD card doing it.
