Can someone please link.

This is a good match 3 game. Plays like bejeweled and has a nice greek story. Well made introduction and good gameplay. A must try on the new ipad.

the IAP is free, but you need to know how to do it.


Here's how:

Turn on Airplane mode on your iPad. Then open the app for the first time.

To be extra sure I deleted the app from my iPad, turned on Airplane mode, and downloaded the game from my computer. Then, with Airplane mode still on, I played a couple of levels and closed the game. Then I disabled Airplane mode (which re-enables your Wi-fi), reopened the game, and the Buy banner/IAP was gone.

Applies to all Playrix Premium/Full games

Why thank you, Delboy! That did the trick! It even worked for Playrix games that I had gotten months ago, before I actually got my ipad. Royal Envoy had already locked up on me- even it's iap is gone! Thank you so much!

Why do they EVEN HAVE an unlock iapp in a game with "full" in its name?

EDIT: do you have to delete and DL via PC? I don't connect my device to iTunes. It's had a nasty habit of eating all of my data.

Thanks for that excellent tip.

As an aside, Airplane mode plays nice with WiFi. I leave it on all the time. I turn WiFi on/off as needed to save on battery life. That's my experience with an iPod Touch 4 and an iPad 3.

And, on an Iphone, you can use airplane mode to turn off the cellular antenna and them tirn wifi on.
