lchiu7: Just buy them now and kill the download. You can download later on a device that is able to play them.


Yeah but the play store won't allow you to buy it if you don't have a compatible device. Luckily I have 2 x xperia plays on Gingerbread, an HTC Sensation on Jellybean, an Xperia Arc S on ICS and a Jellybean tablet so I have all the bases covered so see pretty much all the apps available in the play store online.




My views (except when I am looking out their windows) are not those of my employer.

All those desserts can't be good for your teeth! (or your waistline) Laughing.

If you buy via the Play website does that mean you can download later without specifying a download device there and then?  If that is the case I guess the only danger is not being able to refund.  But that's not a problem at 25c.

Edit: Added comment.

M_I_C_H_A_E_L: Batman Dark Knights Rises for 25c, yes please.

1.8G download though :(


Hahah 

I bought that and Horn too...  which is just marginally smaller @ 1.7G

Might have to pay my cousin a visit who has never gone over 10Gb on his 120Gb plan!
