    Question [RESOLVED] Froyo: Installed Apps NOT Showing Up?

    Had my HTC Incredible for several years now. Something new is happening when I download & install new apps:
    It downloads then installs as normal and reports as installed but when viewing the list of installed apps, its NOT THERE! So if its not there it can't be used.
    This is something new only over the past few weeks.
    I've search this site and many others without any results. Hopefully someone here can advise what the heck I'm doing wrong.
    Advice/suggestions please?

    Welcome to the forum!
    Your phone should be on gingerbread by now. Try going into system settings and clicking on OTA update. Many of your newer apps don't run well (or run at all) on Froyo.

    Resolved!!!
    Come to find out, some of the "apps" available on the google play store are not "apps" at all but merely "widgets". As such, even though downloaded and installed they are NOT appearing in the application list because they are, well, NOT applications. To see the and attach then to a start screen perform a long finger hold in a blank area of the desired menu screen. Soon you will see list of the installed "widgets". simply to a touch and drag to the desktop. And Voila` works like a charm..
