Default Missing App advice

HI All,

Loving my Infinity apart from one thing - the Monopoly game from EA which I have had on all my other Android devices (phones and tabs) doesn't show up on the app store when I look for it, but it does on other devices.

I'm assuming it's because the Infinity doesn't list automatically as being compatible. But was wondering - is there a way I can either force install it or fool Google Play into thinking my Infinity is another device so I can download it?

I have a long plane journey in a couple of days and distraught I won't have it to play



Thanks

EA monopoly runs perfectly on my Infinity with stock JB. Go to the Google Playstore > My Apps > All (not Installed). Then search for Monopoly. If you ever installed it before, it will be there waiting for you. If you don't find it there, then get the APK from another Android device and send it to your tablet.

Good luck!

Thanks so much. I don't have the Infinity with my now but will do this later.
I do seem to remember that it didn't show up in the My Apps section, even though I have installed it previously on my S3, Nexus 7 and Note 10.1.

How do I send the .apk from my S3? It's installed there. Sorry to ask stupid question.

I've done this by using the free version of an app called file expert. It will copy the apk of an app for you and give you options to send it to another device. Make sure the device you're sending it to is set to allow downloads from other sources then just hit the install button.

Hi Anne

I got 90% of the way here and then hit a problem.

I managed to extract the .apk as you suggested and I sent it to my Infinity. App installs perfectly. But then what happens is when I open Monopoly for the first time, it connects to the EA server to download files and then comes up with an error and tells me to go EA Mobile Games | Mobile Games, iPhone Games, Cell Phone Games and select my country and ask for help.

I'm assuming you didn't have this problem? it's driving me mad that I got so close and am now not able to get any further. Boooo

Any help welcome!
