I ran into a really weird problem (bug?)

In Android Market, when looking at a specific application's info, the first area in the lower white half of the screen is "Updates", containing "Allow Automatic Updating" check-box.

When I try to click on the check-box and miss even a little, the whole area containing the check-box disappears completely (the next "My Review" area becomes top-most).

I can not seem to get back the area for that app, even after reloading its info, or even killing Market app.

  1. Is this a bug? A design feature?

  2. How can I get back the Update checkbox-containing area from wherever it's hiding?

I don't think this is a design feature ... I'm not able to reproduce this at all (except for scrolling down a bit :).

However, as the Android Market App isn't the most stable app on the Android platform, you might want to try clearing the market app cache.

Go to Settings - Applications - Manage Applications - Select Android Market App - Click the Clear Cache button.

Restart the Market app and check if the checkbox is present.

I will try that, thanks. I am almost certain that it will do the trick. –  DVK May 25 '11 at 1:27
    
I have to clear both cache and data to get the checkbox back when this happens (it's fairly infrequent, at least...) –  eldarerathis May 26 '11 at 15:03
    
Market app is really sluggish on my phone (Galaxy S), a lousy experience. never had the checkbox issue though... –  ddewaele May 26 '11 at 17:16
