    Hi everyone, i have Paid US$ 2.91 for a game,Plant VS Zombie from play store. But after i finished downloding and installed it, I open the game, but it says "application is not authorized for use on your android device". And i tried uninstall an install again, but its still the same. My android is 4.0 version. Can I know what's the problem? Who have this problem before? How can I solve it? If there's no way to solve this problem can I get my money back?? please Help, thank you.

    I have purchased an application 'Need for speed Most wanted' from google play (online) and installed on my device 'Micromex A101'. But after installation, when I open such application, it shows 'THIS APPLICATION IS NOT AUTHORIZED FOR USE ON YOUR ANROID DEVICE', which is so disappointing. When such application was not authorized for use on my anoroid device HOW it has been installed on my anroid device. Please help me in refund the amount spent to purchse such application.

    Do both of you have wifi or 3G/4G mobile data on when you're trying to run your games? More and more games these days require an internet connection on startup to check the license.

    With purchased apps, they give you 15 minutes to try it and return it. You might have to contact Google Play and explain the situation to them.

    As B. Diddy said, since it's been more than 15 minutes, contact Google and explain the situation and ask for a refund. (Not all apps are written to run on all versions of all phones. The developer has to upload versions for all versions of Android for all phones and mark them properly, so Play sends you the right one. If the developer makes a mistake there, you get the wrong version and it won't work on your phone.)

    Both apps people are complaining about here are EA games, and I've run into the issue with EA games in the past. It works for me by just uninstalling and reinstalling the application. I'd try that first, but if that does not resolve it then contact Google.


    I tried contacting EA but never received a response back, so I would go straight to Google.
