Few days ago I was asked to install Mailbox from Dropbox, Inc.. I went to Google Play and clicked on the Install button to request remote installation on my machine. Yesterday, I have realised, that this apps wasn't actually installed. So I went again using PC and saw, that it is installed:

Since I couldn't find it on my phone, I opened Google Play directly from the device and to my surprise, it turned out, that this application actually isn't installed:

Is it often to reach such miss-align between mobile and desktop version of Google Play? What can cause this strange situation?
