About Those Missing Apps: Google Says They Are Back


android-market-sThrough a post on the Android Developer’s Blog, the Android team has acknowledged the recent issue with certain apps disappearing from the Android Market. For those that thought the Google team was ignoring the issue entirely, they have issued an apology, citing that they were caught up working on a fix for the problem and resolving it with hardware partners, and “fell short of our own standard for customer support.”

Now doesn’t that just make you feel all better? And yes, the issue has been patched and all apps have been restored to their rightful place among the Android Market. Google saves the day, nothing to see here. Move along.
