Listing on the Android Market

Well, I've published them.  Should take a few minutes for Google to update their search indexes (assuming I didn't do something wrong - the process was fairly complicated.

I hope so. :)
SToid, an Atari ST emulator was released in October and you can't find it under it's name till today.  :-\
You must search under "Atari". Is it possible to set search taggs on market ?

I don't see anywhere to put search terms (I'll do a little more digging).  I've already had 3 purchases though (one each in Mexico, Brazil, and Chile).  It is still not listed when I search, but the fact that SOMEONE found it means it must have been listed somewhere, haha.  I'll give it a while longer to see what happens.

Yes, I'll give future test builds a different package name, so they don't conflict with the Android Market release.  And the market will complain if you try to purchase it when its already installed.

Just a heads up, the picture of my xperia play looks a bit funky in the app listing.

https://market.android.com/details?id=paulscode.android.mupen64plus.xperiaplay#?t=W251bGwsMSwxLDIxMiwicGF1bHNjb2RlLmFuZHJvaWQubXVwZW42NHBsdXMueHBlcmlhcGxheSJd

Its in landscape and has a coloured border around it. (I cant tell what colour it is because im colour blind)

Does the verizon xperia have the unchangeable auto brightness too? When I updated to 2.3.4 it gave me the option to disable it.

I think it did that because it isn't actually a screenshot (it was expecting a particular resolution).  I can change this to a different one if it looks too funky (unless you can think of a good way to get it into an image with the following supported dimensions: 320 x 480, 480 x 800, 480 x 854, 1280 x 720, or 1280 x 800.

I changed it to another one for now.  I can always swap the images out with better ones.  Might take a while to be updated in the listing, though

Well if you ever want to use that image I re-uploaded it in a 480x800 resolution :)

EDIT: I think the android market got confused with my image because the width was the same as the hight so it didnt know wether the image was in landscape or portrait.
