    apps disappeared after being installed

    I installed some apps from Market (ie Barcode Reader), but they do not show up in Home. Same problems with certain pre-installed apps like Sound Recorder. How to access these apps if they do not show up in Home ?

    TIA
    -Allen

    Right, I mean Apps Tray. Neither Barcode Reader nor Sound Recorder is in Apps Tray.
    AnyCut makes shortcut on Desktop ( is it right term?) only?

    AnyCut is a program you can download in the marketplace. It's a program that will allow you to make shortcuts of programs and system tools that you normally can not do without the use of the application.

    I have 9 lockerz invites if interested PM me.

    My original question was why some of downloaded apps (ie Barcode Reader) do not show up in Apps Tray?

    If you are using the default "Home" app then all installed apps should show up in the app tray I believe.

    I also believe so, but the question is, it is not true. This is why I raised question here.
    When I installed Barcode Reader, it didn't ask me to specify Default or not.

    Are you able to launch the app from "My Downloads" in the Market?

    I don't see a "Barcode Reader" app in the Market. I see (and have installed) Barcode Scanner. Is this what you are referring to?

    The closest thing I see would be "ScanLife Barcode Reader".


    **EDIT**

    I went ahead and installed ScanLife Barcode Reader. It shows up as Scanlife in the app tray.
