Help! I can't download the expansions! Thu, 19 May 2011 07:38
Hi,

I've been trying to download the 3 expansions via in-app purchase without success.
The 'BUY' button is visible when I scroll to the corresponding screen: Ticket to Ride Europe, Switzerland or 1910, but when I press the button nothing happens!
Is it because I'm in the Argentine App Store? But then it would be nice to have a warning to tell everybody that the download is not available. There is no such warning.
Or is it something else?
Please, I' really frustrated right now! Can anybody please help me?
Thanks!

It's not the way it should work.

1. Do you see the price of the map to purchase, indicated in the lower right corner of the panel?
2. Do you have an animated spinner replacing the buy button when clicking on it?
3. Is your iPad connected to Internet ?
4. Have you activated any parental controls that would prevent you from buying in app items ?

Gerald,
Thank you for your help!
The answers:
1- yes, there is a price (0.99) at the lower right of the screen,
2 - no, the spinner stays 'frozen'. Nothing happens. There is no change whatsoever,
3 - yes, it is wi-fi connected. I can download apps from the App Store, surf the web,send/receive e-mails, etc... I just can't make these in-app purchases,
4 - no, I haven't activated any parental controls. My kids only use this particular iPad under my 'supervision'.
Well, I'll keep trying.
Thanks again!

Gerald,
It worked!!!
I had to completely disable 'restrictions'. Then it worked!
Note that strangely, 'in-app purchases' was 'OFF' even though 'restrictions' was 'ON'.
Anyway, I'm happy I could buy the expansios!!!
Thank you very much for your help!
Cheers!!!

I just bought the app but I don't see how to download the other 3 for .99 each. Is it inside the app itself? There is no buy button. Please help!

Inside the App itself, on the first screen, take the ticket in the conductor's hand. This opens up a drawer. Put your finger on the box of Ticket to Ride USA in the upper left of the drawer and "scroll" your finger right or left to make the other expansions appear. You can then buy them via the Buy button that will appear in each of the applications' descriptions.

Thanks! Worked great! They should explain that on the app.

There is no price when I pull up the expansions. When I click buy, nothing happens. I am connected to the Internet and confirmed no resrictions for in app purchases.

player730355,

I had the same problem. Restart the iPad pressing Power and Home buttons together and slide the slider to the right.
Wait a few seconds and press the Power button for a few seconds until the Apple logo appears. Wait for the iPad to restart, go to Settings and disable 'restrictions' completely. Not only 'in-app purchases' OFF. Everything OFF.
Try to open the app again (connected to the internet) and see if the 'BUY' button is not greyed out and if there's the price at the lower right corner besides it.
It worked for me. Hope it does for you too.
