Hi, new to this site and Jolla, but enjoying it.

I searched a while but I don't seem to see anything explaining a solution to my problem.

I used this howto: install google play - to get google play up and runnig and it works all right, except for any app I had to pay for if I try to install one of them the play store crashes without any message. Is this a known problem? Where do I look for information on that crash on my Jolla? Any logs? There are a few apps I would like to get working on my Jolla even though I am hoping for more native apps in the future.

thanks, D.

Removed the "bug" tag cause Google Play is not supported in Jolla, thus apps that requure it will fail because of that (and not because the device not working as expected).

No idea why it happens, but a solution to install paid apps from Google Play can be found here: https://together.jolla.com/question/30926/howto-install-google-play/?answer=32103#post-id-32103

Thanks a lot! this work-around did help. I will wait a little to mark this as the accepted answer, because it is not really fixing the bug.

I don't think you can call it a bug. There is absolutely no support by Jolla for Google Play. Also be aware that updating a paid app will fail the same way. I found that the best way to update is first to uninstall the app. Rune
