Restore previously bought app purchases (in-app upgrades)

Hi everyone,

before I moved over to e-os I spent a certain amount of money in Google’s PlayStore to purchase full versions in the particular apps themselves like

  • FairEmail
  • WarnWetter

now these apps say the only way to restore the full functionality is to delete the app, log-in with the related account and download/install the app again - apparently Google manages that in the background - but it doesn’t seem to work with the App Lounge. Btw. I can download apps I paid directly in the Play Store without problems.

Any fixes known for this?
Thanks in advance!

  1. Go to the app developper website, and download the .APK from there.
  2. if it is not possible, you can try “phonesky” witch is a pached gogol play store, running without gogol play services installed but microG, and support paid apps.
