Can confirm being ****ed by Play Store currently.

Only place my apps show up is in Google Wallet purchase history. I get blank on Play Store Web and app. Still stock unrooted on this current phone.

Here is a link where google say they have reports of the issue and you can click to report the issue (its under "recently fixed"...): https://support.google.com/googlepla..._topic=1319135

Excuse the phone screencaps/edits:

I've also pinged our contact at Google. Something is up, let's hope it's for the good.

Thanks for the heads-up!
Thanks for this!

All I did was clear cache and data in the play store on ICS because I couldn't download updates. Did they change clear data so it wipes EVERYTHING server side? o_O

My playstore on my ICS xoom has a completely blank "my apps" page. If I try and update my apps it asks me to pay.

My nexus one on GB still uses a really old version of market (I froze the updater some time ago) and that's working fine at the moment. I can do updates ok too.

On my xoom I unistalled updates to pre "play store" re-brand (so plain old android market) and it shows all my apps and lets me update them without asking me to pay again. Next time I open it, I'm back on the play store with no apps listed in "my apps". So I uninstall updates again next time I need to use it. There doesn't seem to be an updater to freeze any more.

I daren't try buying any new apps in case that messes it up even more.

As a short term workaround try using an older version of the market. The one that works for me is 3.3.12.

I've tried going back to a nandroid from a couple of weeks ago, didn't work. I've wiped, flashed, market doctored, everything I could think of. No help. This is definitely server side.

I've sent emails to google but they haven't replied. I sent a few because there wasn't an option for "you deleted everything on my account for no reason."
Interesting, I thought the update to Play Store was involved. I am going to try to put the original "Old" market version in my ROM and see what happens...

Did your troubles arise when the app updated itself to Play Store? Thanks!

Had a response from Google: try a full wipe.

I hope they haven't sent this to people running full unrooted stock because they'll lose everything & still won't be able to use the store.

No, the update initially worked fine! I cleared data & cache on the store app because something wouldn't download, same way I've been doing for years, and this was the end result.

Hi,

I have a problem, that might be similar.
All the apps that need purchase, but that I have downloaded on a 3rd party market, like getjar, are marked as purchased in the play store, and it always ask for an update, like Beautiful Widgets. So, if I want to purchase it, I can't, because it is considered as purchased already.

Does anybody have the same issue ?
I hope my message is clear enough so you could understand ^^

Can confirm I've got the same issue too, official ICS release from Samsung for the SGS2, all my paid apps are now asking me to pay again.

Phone is rooted and with Apex Launcher.

lol wiping is how a lot of people ended up with the problem in the first place, that's why I don't want them to tell a bunch of regular consumers to wipe!
