Google Play Store FAQ

Different Google Profile

iA Writer’s license is linked to your Google profile. If you are logged in with a different account, or multiple accounts, you won’t be able to find it in the Play Store.

Different regions/ country

Google Play doesn’t carry over purchases from other regions so you may not see it in your Purchased history if you’ve changed regions since you originally bought the app.

Can I use iA Writer on my Chromebook?

Although iA Writer for Android is designed and optimized for mobile, the app can be used on Chromebooks and tablets. Improving the user experience on additional devices is on our roadmap.

Can I re-install iA Writer?

To reinstall iA Writer on a new device you can access your App Library in the Google Play Store. Please, be sure to be on the same account/Gmail address that was used at the time of the purchase.

Technical questions

Supported OS?
