*Update May/June 2023:
In the last DigiCal update there was a bug (related to an update in our billing library) where users who bought DigiCal+ via the old DigiCal+ unlock key app started to get popups in the middle of the screen mentioning some sort of license check issue or asking for consent for personalized ads. These would go away after clicking okay, go away on their own after a few seconds, or crash the app. There is new version of the app now as of June 12, 2023 CEST, version 208(2.2.23), that should fix this problem. Please update to this version and if you are still having issues let us know. Apologies for the trouble.
1. Check if you have access to DigiCal+.
To test if your DigiCal+ license is still active, open DigiCal and check if you still have access to the DigiCal+ only features. For example, try to add the text month or month calendar widget to your home screen. Here's an overview of all the DigiCal+ features we offer.
2. Make sure you have BOTH DigiCal and DigiCal+ installed on your Android device.
The most common cause why DigiCal+ features are not activated is because DigiCal+ is uninstalled.
DigiCal+ is a license verification tool that we use to unlock the premium features already built into DigiCal. After you have installed DigiCal+ on your device, you will only need to start up DigiCal, since this is the main calendar application from where you will manage your calendar events.
Make sure you have installed both DigiCal (free version) and DigiCal+ (paid version) on your device under the Google account you used to make the purchase.
You can check your Google account in the upper right corner of the Play Store page when you access it on your PC:
- DigiCal: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.digibites.calendar
- DigiCal+: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.digibites.calendarplus
3. Download error from Google Play Store
Sometimes an error can occur when downloading DigiCal on Google Play Store, just remove the app and download it again from Google Play Store. Here's a help page explaining how to solve a download error.
4. Enable background data for Google Play and ensure good internet connection
The license verification can also fail if you've disabled background data for the Google Play / Google Play Services, or if the data connection is too bad.
5. Verification error with Google Play Store server
The default license verification has a very liberal retry and grace timer, but it can still fail sometimes. If this happens, connect to a strong Wi-Fi network and restart DigiCal by closing and launching again.
6. Check if your DigiCal+ purchase is still active.
- Go to (https://play.google.com/store)
- Log in with your Google account
- Select the setting button (cogwheel icon) on the right top corner
- Choose my orders
- Check if your order status for DigiCal+ is still active (complete)
We noticed that some users bought DigiCal+ using a different Google Play Store account and when they set up a new Google account, they find out that they have to pay again for DigiCal+. Please note that all your app purchases are linked to one specific Google account.
If you are not sure with which account you bought DigiCal+, you can look it up on your invoice from Google Play Store.
7. Re-install DigiCal and DigiCal+ using the web version of Google Play Store
1. Start your web browser and go to web version of Google Play Store to download DigiCal and DigiCal+. Select the sign in button in the top right corner to sign in with your Google account that is active on your Android device(s)
*Please be aware that uninstalling DigiCal will clear your preferences, widget settings, and any color changes you've made to your calendars or individual events via the DigiCal app. Please also make a backup of any local calendars you have.
2. Log in with your Google account that is active on your Android device.
3. Download the app
