    What do the special icons in Android App Store signify?

    Specifically, the green shopping bag with an exclamation point in the center? Some applications in the store display a green shopping bag with a check mark. Does this mean either compatibility or incompatibility with the Xoom?

    For example, Evernote is listed under "Featured Tablet Apps" yet it has an icon with an exclamation point.

    I've searched for a legend or explanation but have yet to find one.

    I looked up evernote just to check and I don't see an exclamation point anywhere on the market page, can you post a screenshot ?

    I thought I had to be rooted for screenshots (?) If not, I don't think I have a related app installed yet.

    From your Xoom, tap on the market, then tap on "Featured Tablet Apps" to expand the selection. Scroll down to Evernote (will be on the right-hand side)and select. When it opens look to the left, under the Evernote logo and slightly to the right of the version number and you will see the little green shopping bag with an exclamation point. They seem to always be there, with either a check mark or an exclamation point.

    In contrast, for example, select and open USA Today (on the top row) and you will find an icon with a check mark.

    WOW - that is indeed strange! I am showing a small green shopping bag with an exclamation point, on the same line, but to the right of the version number. It is placed just to the left of the light gray vertical line.

    What app can I use (unrooted) for a screenshot?

    I can confirm that app I have downloaded and installed have the checkmark, apps that I have previously downloaded but are no longer installed have the exclamation point

    Evernote after install


    After uninstall through device

    Alright, the checkmark means the application is installed on your device, not sure about the exclamation point yet but my guess is that it means an update is available -

    Well, thanks very much, guys! I was just about to upload two macro shots from my camera so you wouldn't think I had lost my mind. That makes sense to me now.

    Upon further study, I think the exclamation point may signify that either 1)the app has been downloaded (to another device) but not on the current one, or 2) the app has been uninstalled.

    As for a screenshot app, I have yet to find one that works on an unrooted xoom. I'm using screenshot er. Its the only thing that I have had success with, its root only and $.99

    I thought that too, but I've never had evernote installed anywhere until just now..
