    Anyone seen this app promised "later today" (yesterday) yet?

    Also, when I search in "apps", why does it give me back results in "music"... I thought WP7.5 fixed that

    @Minh: I've been searching, and it hasn't shown up yet. However, I don't have an issue with searching in music. If I actually go into just the apps section and search I don't get any music results.

    @blowdart: Yep. The one I still can't find in the marketplace on the phone.

    Nice user experience. Especially for such a visible app. (sarcasm in case you missed that part)

    @Minh: Yep, I'd say @blowdart missed the point, but he did use that smiley Tongue Out

    This has always been a problem. The Windows Phone Blog will blog about some great new app "in the marketplace now". You won't actually see it in the marketplace on your phone for days, though. You can go to the web and install it, but that experience is poor, at best.

    @wkempf, that's a sign of poor architectural choices resulting in fixing an embarrassing bug as this hard to do.

    Nice looking app, shame I can't get it in the UK!  What a croc of *.

    When I log in, it asked me for 1 of 3 Audible sites, Audible.com (US), Audible.de, and I thought the 3rd one was UK

    @Minh: Yep, the third option is audible.co.uk. It just showed up in the US marketplace this morning for me. Maybe it's not in the UK marketplace yet?

    It's a bit "staggery" for me. Play long audio it it'll pause at random.

    Oh and it doesn't restart from the lock screen. You can pause it like you would the music player, but if you try pressing play on the lock screen it doesn't work.

    @spivonious: I follow the link to the market place and get told I can't install due to region or other restrictions.
