    Hi looking for some help here. Installed an app which you are only allow install once. It won't permit a re-install. For some unknown reason yesterday I accidentally cleared the cache of this app which had the same effect as re installing. This has now locked me out of the app which is quite annoying.
    :rolleyes:

    Is there anyway to recover the deleted cache? Or anywork around to allow me re-install the app? I have read elsewhere that the app is using the android device id to prohibit re-installs. I am using a samsung galaxy s3.

    Thanks in advance...

    What is this app that only allows you to install it once? Never heard of anything like that.

    It's a promotional app from Guinness (Guinness Plus App). It occasionally gives vouchers for freebies and to avoid abuse by people claiming multiple times it has this built in security feature. I think its common enough with such apps.

    I should point out it allows several re-installs but if it detects that the app was previously installed on that device it won't allow you past the welcome screen.
