LG Tribute 2

kaykatz 569 May 16, 2016 at 04:16 PM
I bought an LG Tribute 2 and have it activated on RingPlus. (Works great for a $30 phone and "free" service)

Here's the problem: I am unable to download some apps from the Google Play Store. (Yes, I have Unknown Sources checked). These are mainstream apps like CVS Pharmacy that download on all my other phones, some of which run older Android versions with less RAM, memory. Any reason why this is happening? Any work around besides rooting? Thanks for the help.

no rooting required.
Install CVS apps your want on another supported/second phone. Install myAppSharer in that second phone. Open myAppSharer and login. Find cvs apps and share via dropbox/drive/sd card. (note the amount of data to be used). myAppSharer defaults to wifi, but u can change it mobile data.

Now goto your original phone, unknown source on and login to dropbox/drive/sdcard. The apk will be there. Click on apk to install.

WARNING: officially cvs app does not support tribute 2, so use it at your own risk.

Is that the pic of your cat?
