Go to Security in Settings and check Make passwords visible so that you can see what you are typing actually.

It appears Google Play and Gmail wanted an Application-Specific Password. I can only say "appears" because I never got a message that remotely stated it, and when I created on the problem went away. Great job Google. I can't image how many hundreds or thousands of hours have been wasted because Google can't be bothered to get the error message correct.

The refund button on the Play store is only available for 2 hours (although Google's support pages say 15 minutes). From your question it sounds like you may be the developer of the app, in which case you can manually refund the purchase regardless of when the app was purchased via your Google Wallet merchant account. I don't think this actually reverses ...

+1 to Khurram. Creating a new Google account based in the USA worked great. I didn't remove either of the Canadian based accounts on my phone; I just added the new USA one. I connected to a USA VPN Server on my computer for the account creation, and on my Android phone for the adding of the account to my Google Play app. I cleared the cache and data from the ...

Good question, there is no gift system in google play like Steam has. This app has a free version limited to 4 simultaneous cameras and 30 secs audio, try that one. If she really needs the full vesion, you can register your pay method, but each time you CHANGE one payment method to your google's account they discount 1,5 USD from you credit card so take that ...

As a workaround for not seeing the password, you could type your login name and password into an app that uses plain text, like a notebook or even an email. Then copy each, one at a time, and paste them into the name and password field for the login. It seems like I've seen an option to show passwords somewhere, but I enabled that, and I still don't see ...

I had a similar problem, until I found out that the touchscreen was messed up, and was typing a certain letter twice, so try typing your password in the username field and see if it's typing it right, just to make sure.

If the app is available from Amazon's app store you can buy the app on Amazon from a PC and then install the App on the phone from Amazon's app store app.

Uninstalling the app that's doing this is your best bet. As you've noticed, it's an unreasonable liberty to take with your phone. There's another possibility: I made an app bURLy which lets you control what your phone does when an app tries to open a web link, such as to a Play Store app page. Even when other apps (such as the Play Store app) can open the ...

Are you clicking on ads inside apps? Because they would pop-up Play Store immediately. Remove all those apps which pops-up ads very frequently. If no - try signing out of the Play Store and stop it forcibly using App Manager. Then start it and login again. Post what happened.

If the device that already has the app installed is rooted, you can pull the .apk file. This can be achieved a few different ways: using a specialized app (such as AppMonster or Titanium Backup) via adb pull if the ADB daemon runs in root-mode (it usually doesn't, but that can be achieved using adbd Insecure) src Using a file explorer and granting it root ...

There are various ways through which you could buy a premium for other users you wish You can buy some credit through the Google Play Gift Card as John has suggested although its availability is limited (i.e. If Google Play gift cards are not supported in their area then it would be waste of buying the credit). Some applications also have the "pay for ...

Another solution would be to buy some Google Play credit you enter the code you buy into your wife's play store, and you can use that balance to buy apps


2

A solution could be to add your Google Account to her phone, disable all syncing (Gmail, Calendar, Contacts, etc.), and then install the app from the Play store from your account. I did this with my wife's phone so that I could use some apps that I had purchased but on her phone. Google Play currently has "no data move functionality available" source so ...

Swipe from left edge to right don't fix the problem but make the menu accesible, and don't require to root the phone. From http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=55005591&postcount=2 Swype from left edge to right or use XPosed module "x3 jelly bean play store fix" if you've rooted your device

Add &hl=pl to the end of the URL. (So it becomes https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.touchtype.swiftkey&hl=pl ) This will force the Play store to change to Polish entirely, and display the Polish version of the site, not just the translation. (Works for all Google sites, and all languages) It will remain in Polish until you close the ...

If you root your phone then you can safely install Xposed and this module that should fix the problem.

I have the same problem on my phone, but luckily I found a way around it. Simply swipe in from the left hand side and it brings you the exact same menu you are after.

Android leaves some space for system updates, usually 10% (I'm not sure if this number), so if your free space becomes lower than that, it says you are running out of storage space. There are methods for increasing internal storage by using a second partition on your SD Card and mounting it using Link2Sd. (Note: you need root for this)

Just uninstall google play store update to revert back to the factory settings. Then updating apps will be possible.

Just a note to help someone else with this on a Samsung S5 LTE could not be downloaded due to an error. (403) Everything was going great with my brand new S5, until I turned on the Download Turbo.

No and no. In the first case, the app isn't downloaded from Google Play, it's downloaded from another source. In the second case, it's shipped with the ROM, and has no ties to Google Play. However, if you supply the APK via other means than Google Play, you can't use Google Play's update features.

This seems to be a known bug in the Play store app from v4.8.20. Try uninstalling the updates to the play store app. This could be a temporary fix until the bug if fixed in a future version of the app.


0

First, you must have version 4.8.2 installed (just replace it in /system/app with the new com.android.vending.apk) Instructions (found https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3JI6YNSpAz8): root, install supersu install busybox, then terminal emulator stop whatever internet access on your android, or it will silently auto-update store, making your hard typing ...

Download the apk for 4.8 from android police, decompile, change package name, compile, install. I don't think it would be able to update then. You'd have two play stores, keep the original and wait for an update that fixes it, but use the other one in the mean time. I hope this helps.

The correct answer to this problem, and I always see wrong explanations, is that you have a duplicate /data/app-lib folder for the app or apps that are giving you that error. To fix: Using adb, terminal, or root explorer: compare /data/app to /data/app-lib you will see, for example: /data/app/example-app-1.apk /data/app-lib/example-app-1 ...

Solution for this issue is to move some apps to the phone storage or sd card and not in the internal storage; like you go to phone or mobile settings>apps>go through each app that you installed if there is a button that says "move to phone storage" or "move to sd card" click on it,in this way application will be moved out from internal storage because most ...

First of all this is a bug somewhere on play store side so I think we can only get a work around not an actual solution, said that I solved freeing more space than it would be theoretically needed, using old version of play store works too. As for how much space is needed I don't have a clear answer because my phone (also on android 4.2.1 and MTK based) is ...

Try uninstalling the updates to put Google Play Store back to factory version, disconnect your connection, then set "Do Not Update" in Play Store settings. My problem is fixed but I have an old version of Google Play. But I can update my application.

Use either of these: BusyBox BusyBox Pro (paid) Note this comment in the description: Please note I did not write BusyBox! I wrote this installer and cross compiled BusyBox for Android. Please see the about menu option for more details or here: www.BusyBox.net If you're installing a custom ROM, it might have BusyBox already (but usually not ...

Well, I would say there may not be any reason to backup your contacts because I guess its backing up automatically over your gmail account. So for verifying it why don't you try logging yourself up over the Gmail account over PC/Laptop once logged in tap over the Gmail icon and click over the contacts. I am sure all your contacts are available over there !

If you canceled the trial and want to renew the TRIAL, I think you'll have to wait for another offer. If you want to renew the actual service, go to Play Music, settings, Subscribe to All Access.

Yes, It will :) I do this all the time when a update comes up and available to my phone. I too am using Play Store 4.9.13. Even if this doesn't work out, you can uninstall updates in app settings in your phone.

The answer to your specific question is, unlikely. You can install an app that has an interface that you can communicate with. Communicating with that interface can allow you to know. But other than that, it's unlikely. And you'd have to have confirmation on the android to accept the manifest of the app's requirement list. You may not be fully lost, ...

Go to google play on a computer and try to install an app. After pushing the Install/Installed button a popup will appear listing the permissions it requires and below that a drop down listing the devices you can install it on. Click on the drop down. If it is currently installed it will say "Your device already has this item installed" next to the device ...

I won't answer the question itself, but the general question on how to find the stolen phone, and for sure the way you trying is not going to get you anywhere. In order to have a chance to find the stolen phone you should have already install any anti theft app like Google's Android Manager or Cerberus or any similar app. Of course these apps will work only ...

You'll have to just Google it and find a copy elsewhere on the internet. If it's unpublished from the Play Store, you can't install it from there anymore.

App developers have the ability to do a staged roll-out of updates to their apps through Google Play Store. This means that a small percentage of users (chosen randomly) receives the update first. The developer can gauge the feedback, and then proceed to a wide roll-out until they reach 100% of their install base. It's possible that the latest version of ...

I am not sure how the offers you have work, but could you go to the play store in a browser and buy them there on your HTC and tell it to install them on the N4? I've had to do that for devices since you cannot access the Devices page from the app itself. If necessary, you may have to clear defaults with the browser and Play Store so that you have the option ...

I assume that rooting and flashing a ICS rom on your HTC desire is out of the question, so how about you take the SIM card from your HTC to your nexus 4, complete the offer, then switch back? If the offer is tied to the operator the nexus 4 should be able to make the purchase just fine. If the offer is tied to the device model (HTC), then try this app on ...

You get two choices when you accept to buy an app on the device you want to install app on. Pay or send URL for payment to whoever. So send URL to yourself or whoever is going to pay via email which will auto pop up when you select... Send URL... .. I send to my Gmail account then click link on pc or phone and follow instructions to pay . Easy

You can report the app to Google. When visiting the app's page in the web version of the Play Store, there's a link for "Flag as inappropriate". Under "Malicious or inappropriate Android apps" (and I'd say this probably qualifies) you are given two options for reporting the app. One through the Play Store app on your device, the other via a web site. ...
