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.

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.

I don't see it?
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
