    Thumbs down Google Play Store update now broke my phone

    As far as I can tell, Google forced a new app of theirs called the Google Play Store onto my Droid 3 today, and with that, uninstalled the original Google Marketplace app.

    On my Motorola Droid 3, when I go into Apps, there is an icon at the top right corner that kind-of looks like a white shopping bag. I have attached a pic to the bottom of this post which has an arrow pointing to the icon.

    Previously, when I tapped on that icon, it opened up a menu into the Marketplace app.

    Now, when I tap on on that icon, I get an error message "Application not installed on your phone".

    How can I get this icon to work again???? I guess the icon now needs to open the new Google Play Store app?

    Google has released an updated that supposedly fixes the issue. If it hasn't automatically updated, you can download it from a link on Phandroid.

    I guess that's Google's way of showing that they aren't playing favorites with Motorola lol.

    That's not the market icon and I dont know what you have but it is understandable that it would not work. The market is called "Play Store" and has s triangle on a bag. All I did was "accept" terms and no prob.

    It is the Marketplace icon. At least for Motorola Droid phones.

    And with the new update from Google, 3.4.7, it how correctly opens the "Play Store", just like it use to open the "Marketplace".
