Edit: Now works for Nexus 7! Just open the "Play Movies & TV" app as below.

Did a search but didn't find anything about this.

Regular price is $9.99.

If you have a Nexus 5 smartphone, just open up your Google "Play Movies & TV" app and you should see the option to add Gravity to your library for FREE!

**NOTE**: Don't go through the Google Play Store! Access it by opening the "PLAY MOVIES & TV" APP in your app drawer

If you don't have a Nexus 5, you'll only see an offer for Shaun the Sheep unless you have ROOT ACCESS. If so, I've heard you can trick the Play Store into thinking your phone is a Nexus 5. I haven't tried this myself since I own a Nexus 5, but people have had success with the following steps:

Steps:
1. Download the app "Build Prop Editor" from the Play Store (or just edit your build.prop manually for those that know how)
2. Edit your build.prop to show these values:
ro.build.product=hammerhead
ro.product.model=Nexus 5
ro.product.device=hammerhead
3. Open the "Play Movies & TV" app as above. (May need to reboot prior to doing this)

(I take no responsibility for those who may crash their phone by incorrectly editing their build.prop)

If you have a Nexus 5 and you don't see Gravity offered to you for free. Go to the Play Movie & TV app settings and clear app data. Once that's done, restart the app and it should be in there. I initially didn't have it offered until I did this.

People have been able to add the movie to their Nexus 7's. You might have to clear data app as well. See above.

Edit: open up the App "Play Movies & TV". Don't go into the Play Store and click "Movies & TV".

Well, don't know if anyone else was able to replicate besides the OP so I can't say if it was ever working.

Ok, this needs to be highlighted then. I went into the Play Store and then went to Movies & TV, which didn't work.

Now when I opened that App it does show up!

Just got it using my wife's Nexus 5 about an hour ago. Unless things have changed since then, it's still live.
