Support: Can't download movies etc. any more?
Yesterday I "rented" a movie from the Google Play Store, and I tried to "download" it to my phone for offline viewing later on, but for some reason I couldn't. I have been able to download movies successfully in the past -- most recently about three months ago, I think -- but for some reason, every time I've tried to download this newest rental, it just hasn't worked.
Coincidentally, or not, about a week ago I noticed that another of my apps -- the one for the Globe and Mail (a Canadian newspaper) -- was telling me that its twice-daily efforts to download the latest edition for offline reading were "incomplete". This didn't bother me much, as I wasn't actually using the app to read the paper that often. But now I wonder if there's some deeper problem that is affecting both of these apps.
My phone seems to *have* enough space for a movie or whatever. The "system" memory is about 2GB altogether, and I'm only using half of that for app storage. I have another 1.37GB free on the internal USB storage, and another 6GB free on the micro-SD card.
Any thoughts as to what might be the problem here? It's no biggie -- I can always watch my rental when I've got a wi-fi connection -- but if it signifies some sort of deeper problem, I'd like to nip it in the bud while I can.
