Hi,

living in China, I recently ask hanping to refresh billing details by mistake. Then, I couldn't see ABC dictionnary entries anymore.

So I followed your advices =>
  • force close hanping app ;
    ariplane mode/wifi/VPN ;
    then deleted app data from android settings ;
    then deleted embermitre pref file ;
    opened hanping app ; waited 10 secs
and bingo : Successfully fetched billing details !!!

Happy to use ABC dictionnary again ! Thank you for the explanations. ;)

ps : I also tried with foreign sim card, opened the app, ABC was enabled again. But as soon as the chinese sim card was inserted ABC vanished again. (Maybe I should have ask the app to refresh the billing details at the time the foreign card sim was inserted).

Thanks very much for reporting back. That's interesting that the foreign sim card trick partially worked. It may have stopped working because of a cached configuration file.

You wouldn't believe how many hours I've spent testing/debugging the in-app and licensing scenarios. Problem is, as soon as I get a solution/workaround nailed down, Google goes and changes something in its backend!

Hey mark,

I've written a little blog which may help some of the people who wish to access Google Play Store in China.

It gives clear instructions on how to install the 'Play' files and allow purchase of paid and unpaid apps from any locale (including China).

You can find it here. http://www.michaeltyler.co.uk/access-go ... any-phone/

I hope it helps your users.

Regards,

Mike.

Thanks Mike. It should be noted here that those instructions are only for rooted devices. But this is nevertheless very useful information, so thanks again.

I'm in Taiwan. I have an Android phone from mainland China with a Taiwan sim card. I downloaded the Pro version from the Amazon app store. Upon install there was an error, but I'm able to use Pro features except for the audio. When I press the audio icon I get a message "audio playback is pro only" even though I'm using Pro!

Sorry, I missed your message earlier. I've never heard of that message coming from the Amazon AppStore version. Are you sure you are not using the version from Google Play? Please email us at hanpingchinese@embermitre.com

That PureVPN paid app works for me in China. I highly recommend the use of it
