    There is no other way at this point.

    Your phone might have temporarily lost its Internet connection, or you might be trying to download an app that's too big to download over your phone's mobile data connection. If you're trying to download an app that's larger than 50 megabytes (MB) – this applies to many games – you'll need to connect to a WiFi network to complete the download.

    Hopefully that will be changed at some point in the future. iPhones were unable to download large apps/podcasts via mobile network at one time too.

    I am in the same boat. It sucks major pain and totally ridiculous. My 928 is almost a chore to use sometimes. I switch between it and a note 2. Note 2 for work and my 928 for personal.

    PS. You can even changed on settings to use cellular data and it still won't download larger files

    Yeah I've noticed anything over 40mb will only allow WiFi downloads n I don't know bout u but the WiFi I use at the library is shockingly slow but I guess that's coz there may be 20 odd peepz connected at the same time :(
