    Timebound ! Actually i want to download the 9GAG official app right now, which would be paid in a while. I have a 520, which (shockingly) doesnt support the official app. I know the official app is worse than pathetic, i know about rudy's great app too.
    a) the official app might improve in the future
    b) this thread might help me/others wanting to buy apps for free which are free only for a limited time

    But i want to register the official app with my ms account so that if i want to install it on my new phone which i'd buy in a while, i wont have to pay for the app, and it would say "you already own this app, do you want to reinstall ?".
    I cant install it from the phone, and when i see on the store on the browser on my laptop, it says not compatible there too.
    Does anyone know of a way i can register it as purchased/installed on my MS account app history ?

    I don't think it's possible unless you register another phone.

    I have no idea why the app is only 1GB since it's only a web wrapper.

    that app seems to be a joke, by the screenshots. They seem to have done it just in reply to some people, and didn't really care about it.
    Anyway thanks ! :)
    If anyone can come up with some indigenous (or not) method to do what i asked, do share !

    You should be able to go to the windows phone store on your laptop or pc and purchase it there. If I remember correctly you will get a notifier about installing the app the next time the phone connects to the pc.

    sync your ms account with a 1G RAM or more. borrow from a friend who is about to do a hard reset or from a store then purchase an app using the phone. Once a device already synched to your account it will stick to your profile and you will be able to purchase from browser anytime.

    when i sign in at the store, the install button changes to 'not compatible ' text. What you mentioned must be with wp7, i just have an option to send apps via push. Anyway thanks ! :)

    thanks for the reply ! :) as far as i can see, fidler is something which can fiddle with the web page (putting it crudely), so it might fool the web store that my phone is compatible and then i should be able to send the app to my phone via push service.
    But i don't seem to see how exactly it is to be done for wp store.
    If you have done it, please share your experience (adventure ;) ), which apps you got working that way, and maybe post the link of some tutorial which can get it done for me.
    Just to add, i know basic html, basic c++ and basic java, and i can understand a little higher level stuff with some effort maybe, but i hope it wont require any super advanced stuff !

    Lastly, thanks for the information, i wasn't aware that such a thing existed ! :) waiting for a proper reply, do oblige when you are free.
