Droid app opens market?

  • 4 years ago · Quote · #1


    The last few updates to the ChessCom Android app seem to be shortcuts to the market link to the app, rather than the app itself.  I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling, but to no avail.  Is it possible for the ChessCom icon to directly open the app rather than opening the market?  Thanks!


    Cheers, Zak

    Do you have your updates on automatic?

    No, should I turn it on?  Why does this make a difference?  Thanks!

    If you have it turned on, your droid downloads and installs automatically so you won't need to click on any links or go to MarketPlace.

    I'm not clicking on any links or even trying to go to the market.  I have an icon with a green pawn that is called "ChessCom" and when I tap it, I am taken to the market.  From there I have to tap "open" to run ChessCom app.  Before, when I clicked on the icon, it would take me straight to the login screen.

    Can you please let me know which Android it is and which version app you're using?

    You can find the app version by going into settings /applications /manage applications / chess.com

    The version is on the top right corner
