Hi all.
Ive created a theme for GO Locker. There was nothing difficult but! i've faced a very strange problem!
I have two vertions of the theme. They are just the same except of color. The blue one is free. Ive published
it on Play market long ago and it works. And the red one is paid. As I've already said the
difference only in color of the pictures. The have absolutely identical structure, and the manifest file
is also the same except the name etc of course. I've published it on Play market as paid app
Ive tested my apps many different ways. Using Android emulators, using real phones with diferent veriosn fo android.
And everything workes fine!. But sudenly ive discovered that paid version after installation from Play market
says that file is broken or wrong!. Why? WTF!! So i've decided to explore the problem
I've just made my paid app free! And installed it again from Play marked. And it worked!
So what is the problem? What ive missed? I dont use any special features like in app purchase etc.
So what? Why while my app is paid it doesnt work, but after making it free it works?

Where are you from ? Do you have merchant account? Maybe your country does not support paid app publishing.

I got the same thought as macaronlover. I published FREE and PAID versions on Google Play but with different keystores. They are working well. I am not sure you are allowed to change your keystore once you published your app on Google Play store.

According to me there is not a big deal, whether you launch your app as paid or free. May be you should be mailed to Google's Play store to find out the exactly problem behind this issue. It may be that Google's some filter has created the problem.
