Bought paid app, can’t re-download it without paying

Alex's Accts

Hello there, I’m writing this review to tell you that I’ve found a, I’d call it a glitch, in the system, I bought the app on a previous IOS/Apple device and on a previous software update of IOS/Apple as well, I do not know if this affects my purchase or not, but I’d to have the full app back without having to spend my money again, the only reason I’m posting this here instead of there is because of the fact that I apparently didn’t buy the app on this device.
P.S. Regarding the skin maker part of the app, considering it’s now its own app, would I have to buy the full version separately if I bought the full version of Minecraft Explorer Pro before?
Best regards,
A intrigued customer



When I got this app I got it in case I didn’t know how to craft something, and whenever I would click on something and every time it would “ Reasons to upgrade to pro” which cost money, so it was a waste of my time and my phones memory. So I highly suggest you don’t buy this and just scroll by



Paid the $2.99 can’t remove the ads 👎🏻👎🏻 doesn’t have all the console items for Minecraft listed. End up using the Desktop version for reference because the console is so out of date. Really feel like I paid for an incomplete app. Please remove the startup ads!
