    I know this has been discussed on a few different threads but I thought I would consolidate to help bring light to this issue.

    It seems as though the Android Market is not showing some apps. These apps are visible through 3rd party sites like AppBrain and Cyrket, but when you navigate to the Market on your phone, they are unable to be found. I've compiled a list of apps and devices that people across various support forums have posted that they've had issues with. I have a feeling this is a pretty major issue and Google doesn't seem to know about it yet. I'm advocating that everyone that has an Android device, to check the list of apps below. If you've discovered a missing app not listed, please post below.

    Post here if you find an app through AppBrain, but cannot access it in the Market on your phone.

    Affected Apps:
    SlideScreen
    LauncherPro
    ADW.Launcher
    Handcent SMS
    People/Contacts Widget
    WatchDroid
    Where
    Better Contacts
    WeGolf
    Setting Profiles
    NetSMS
    Quick Settings


    Affected Devices:
    HTC Evo - 2.1
    HTC Hero - 2.1 (Some apps are working)
    HTC Desire - 2.1
    Moto Droid - 2.0 and 2.1
    Moto Milestone - 2.1
    HTC Increctible - 2.1
    Droid Eris


    Let Google know about this! If you are having these issues please post in the following threads. The more people we can get to speak up the sooner we can get Googles attention.

    Found every app I searched for in your list. Gave up after a few. LauncherPro, ADW, Where, and Handcent were all there. I think that apps tend to disappear for short periods of time while they are being updated.

    Carriers have the ability of blocking apps they don't want you to have. Not saying this is the cause, just something to think about.

    The developers for almost every app listed knows about this issue, yet cannot get Google to fix it. Read the links to the Google support forums I have in the original post.

    LauncherPro, Handcent, and ADW have all given a direct link to their apk.

    Yeah, I've been reading through from various sources. What this says to me, if this issue grows or comes and go's, is that Google may be getting ready to pull the trigger on the Froyo OTA for Nexus One and launch of the new Market.
