market://details not working?

 Apparently, I supposed to be able to open the Market page of my app by
querying an intent with an URL like:


where <app_id> seems to be the package name: +Market/thread?tid=5c8501d73226fad8&hl=en

However, while this seems to indeed open the Market app with the
details activity, it always gives me "A Server error occured".

I'm trying both launching the intent through code, as well as on an
adb shell as, say:

am start "market://details?id=com.NamcoNetworks.PacMan"

Neither works.

Any ideas?

 Apparently, I'm supposed to be able to open my app in the Android
market by querying an Intent with an URL like:


<app_id> seems to be the package name, e.g. say

See for example: +Market/thread?tid=5c8501d73226fad8&hl=en

However, while this seems to open the Market app's detail page, it
always gives me the "A server error occured" message.

I've tried both using an app:

Intent intent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_VIEW);

As well as through the adb shell:

am start "market://details?id=com.NamcoNetworks.PacMan"

Any ideas?

 I'm guessing you are working off some old data.

See this page: 

The intent should be a Uri something like market://search?q=pname:<package>
or market://search?q=pub:"<Developer Name>" to see all your apps.
