    I have had a similar experience. I tried to search for FlyCast as well, and came back with nothing, but then went to the music category and there it is.

    Perhaps could be a problem with the database on the app store.

    Same deal with the H12c Lite (HP 12c financial calcuator simulator). Saw it on iTunes, but couldn't locate on ipod touch.

    Oh yeah, it's weird. I was looking for an app using iPhone search. Not there, but I had just noticed it on the desktop. Checked the iPhone store's Productivity category, and sure enough, there it was. So, now I know not to depend on the iphone store's search facility.

    I've been having the same problems with XBMC Remote and TrackMyShipments. Was able to find XBMC Remote eventually (not through search) but still can't find TrackMyShipments.

    It's under the Productivity category. Look there. (Note: I'm at the desktop, and just ran a powersearch, confined to the app store, for TrackMyShipments. Gees, this Apple stuff is beginning to feel like Windows goofiness.)
