1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    I purchased the latest version of IM+ Pro 4.0.3 from Shape Services and downloaded the APK file to the root of my SD card. However, when I attempt to install it, it aborts the installation, saying simply, "File not installed".

    I downloaded another APK to my SD card and was able to successfully install the app, so I know the problem isn't with my phone or card.

    Can someone tell me what is going on?

    IM+ Pro never shows up as available in the Market from my phone, only the free version. That is what necessitated getting the APK directly from Shape Services.

    At any rate, I figured out the problem with the APK: it cannot be installed from the root of the SD card. It must instead be pushed to the system/apps folder.
