android update wipes apps

 11:41 am on Mar 25, 2014 (gmt 0)

Just because its Google's Android doesn't mean its better than Microsoft Windows for updates.
With no warning, the latest Android update wiped a stack of my apps. That's a major annoyance. Having a warning helps, but not a lot. I now have to go and find and download them again. Grrr.

Just go to the play store. Tap "my apps" you will be presented with 2 tabs "all" and "installed" your app history will be in the "all" tab.

Thanks Mack, that helps.

I'm still going to have to go through them again, and put them on the relevant pages. I had them all nicely in order. :/

There's a name for that... It's called Ohhh Cee dee lol

hehe, yeah, I guess I am like that. :)

Travel tools on one page, image tools on another page, communications on another, etc.

It's a point of principle, too.

I assume any associated data stored for them got wiped too?

I'd be royally pissed if all my Angry Birds history got erased and I had to go through all the levels again. Or would I...?

I've yet to find that out.

To stop it happening again. Settings > applications > manage applications > select each app and tap "move to sd card.

I also have different screens for groups of apps. Must be ocd aswell lol.

so yeah i misread that title for a second...

To all intents and purposes, the apps were wiped. I need to re-install them.

In addition, i've now noticed a privacy issue having developed. This message now shows in gmail:-
"Oops! You are not invisible because you're logged into Google Talk from another client, device or location..."

I am certainly, not knowingly, logged into Google Talk. In fact, I can't find it on my phone, and I have not logged in on my desktop, laptop or tablet, etc.

If you visit gmail on a desktop it loggs you into gtalk from there. Google Talk is now called hangouts at the play store.

Well, this is interesting, and very annoying. The message is cryptic because it suggests another location or equipment, and not the gmail i'm logged into.

Something is not correct with Google's system because I should be able to control this. It seems I cannot control it any longer. #Googlefail

It seems other users have had this problem and there doesn't seem to be an obvious fix.
