It was just before noon CST and I am in Missouri. My last woot order took 6 business days to arrive after the order date.
Still no ship, and no tracking via the order number trick.

I'm not sure. I already uninstalled the Amazon one (read lite).
Update from Amazon: "We don't normally offer refunds for app purchases." I'm thinking "normally"? Its your first day!
roebeet wrote:x2, @seanrolsen -- can you confirm that you got your Woot GTAB already? You can be an enormous help if you did.
If so, can you please tell us your build version? To do that:
"Settings" application, then "About Tablet" and then the Tap UI version. Thanks!!!
Whoah whoa... hold the phone truck... back the phone. I did not recieve tracking, shipment notice or my Woot!. As far as I can tell it is still in TX (or NY?). I bought the app via the Amazon App store on my HTC Desire from USCC. I wanted to take advanfree of the free app a day thing.
The android version of the app is more full-featured than the Amazon App Store version. And without notice.

A n@@b in the world of android programming ... can someone suggest a good set of software tools (for the PC) that would get me going?
I have two (I think) good ideas for apps that work for people who have rooted android powered cell phones. Let me know if you are interested!

Initial indications are that apps purchased from Amazon AppStore have been modded such that they don't run if AppStore is not installed. Can you de-install the AppStore app and see if your copy of Repligo still works or if you get the "won't work without AppStore install message. This is the situation with Angry Birds Rio and I suspect it is the case with other apps also. I've always wondered about the "paid" apps and this is a good chance to test. This is something I and others would really like to know.
I would love to help but at the moment I cannot. Once I saw that the RepliGo app did not have the Freehand option (which I purchased it for in the first place) I uninstalled it, hoping for a "Refund" button. Im afraid of buying any additional apps from them becuase if I run into the same problem, I know I am SOL if the app is missing something.

I just uninstalled AppStore from my G2 and neither of the two apps I d/l'ded from them work! Namely Angry Birds and Shazam, which is a free app of the day today. Moreover trying to run Shazam crashed the launcher too!
Makes me wonder if there's more to AppStore then we know. Usage tracking? Something else??? Did anyone actually read the EULA?
After a bit of skimming through terms of service, they do say that AppStore has to be installed in order for their apps to run, AND you must be signed in. Reinstalled AppStore, and it indeed asked me to sign in, before letting run the apps......
But at least it didn't require an active data connection to run them. Disabled Wi-Fi and Mobile Data, and still able to run...
I'm hoping this is so that they can enable some sort of DRM on the devices that do not have a unique identity (e.g. phones have IMEA number that is unique, but many other Android devices don't)... But sounds kind of fishy still...
I wonder if uninstalling Android Market would kill the market purchased apps? Hm....
Thanks for the info. I am sure that it won't be long before there is a patch for this. "Put this tiny file here and your're good" kind of thing.

11:50AM for me and I apparently missed the cutoff! So... if you ordered after noon you probably aren't shipping until Monday. I did read the "It doesn't matter what time your ordered" message, but the "unofficial update" made more sense.

Can I come over to your house and play? And now that we know the build number thanks to Cridds, what does that tell us about modding. Is it the old one we know or the new one that makes it harder and more more risky?
Sorry for the long post... this forum moves so fast!
