    Google Blunders Some of the 10 Billion App Promos Downloads; Makes Up For It


    Apparently, Google's 10 Billion App 10-Cent promo has been such an outrageous success that the Market's servers were faltering under the weight of an onslaught of downloads. Several users experienced error messages and cancelled orders while trying to download some of the great deals. Luckily, Google loves us and is doing everything they can to rectify the issue. If you are one of the folks that had a cancelled order you should be expecting to get an email like this one,

    Hello,

    We're writing to apologize for any accidental cancellation of your Android Market orders during our 10 Billion Downloads promotion. We'd like to inform you that as a one-time courtesy, we're giving you free access to all the apps you attempted to purchase. To download these apps, please follow these steps:

    Open Android Market on your device
    Press "Menu" and then touch "My Apps"
    Scroll down and select the apps in question. They should be labeled as "Purchased" or "Not installed."
    Touch "Install" to download and install the app

    If you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to contact us through our Help Center at https://support.google.com/androidma...contact_policy

    Again, we apologize for any inconvenience and hope you have a wonderful holiday season.

    Regards,
    The Android Market Team
    For those folks that received the email, you should already be able to go download your apps. For others, you can expect to receive the email soon.
