    Question Title:
    Market Link in App Drawer Broken
    Comment:

    Does anyone know of a way to 'relink' the market shortcut at the top of the app drawer? Since Google updated the Market to the 'Play Store' that link at the top no longer works...

       you should have a play store icon in your apps

      Should work once  your market app is updated to the google play version

      Nope, still says "Application is not installed on your phone". I'm talking about the white market app in the top right corner of every page of the drawer. I realize that there is a Play app now in the drawer but it was always nice to be able to get to the market from any screen in the drawer.

      my play store app downloaded this morning along with several other updates.  maybe it just hasn't gotten to you yet.

      Registered just so I could post this.  I just recieved the update a few min ago and I am having the same problem.

      Dont know of a way to update that link in the app drawer. My download for the update just came and the link still works.

      Have you cleared cache, reboot device and see what happens.

      Try turning the phone off. I repeat "OFF'" not a reboot. Wait about 3 minutes and restart, this should get it working. Go the the Market, go to your apps, and get the upgrades.

       

      should work after that.

       Still not working after the power down. Not sure what is up here. I guess I can just scroll to the Play Store icon in the app drawer but that is kind of annoying...

      Not working for me either.

      I have gotten the update and my link still works. Will someone that is having this problem try to uninstall Market updates and let it update again. This should get it going. I don't know why that link would stop working. Hope this helps.

    • joelbon

      I was wrong. Mine stopped working and I am getting the same problem. I am reporting this. Thanks for the heads up.

      I logged in here to report the same issue. I submitted it to Google in an email as well. 

    • n8shon

    • koolade2

      I think this happen to everyone that updated. 

    • n8shon
