iPhone / iPad / iPod
Our iOS software is sold primarily through in-app purchases; download our free basic app from the App Store, run it, tap on the menu button at the bottom right corner of the screen, tap on “Add-ons,” and tap on the price button next to the item or bundle that you want to purchase. This is totally anonymous – only Apple knows who you are, we won’t even know your name or email address unless you contact us or register your purchase on our website.
We’ve also now started selling dictionary add-ons through our website store and (thanks to a recent Apple policy change) will shortly be selling other add-ons through there as well.
Our Android software is available from two different sources:
Pleco Store – buy directly on our website; supports credit cards (Visa/MC/AmEx) and PayPal. Works in any version of Pleco, regardless of what country you’re in or where you originally downloaded our app from – you can download Pleco on pretty much any Android device by typing pleco.com/getandroid in its built-in web browser.
Google Play – download our app from there and purchase add-ons from the in-app “Add-ons” screen. Convenient – charges your Google Wallet account – but generally does not work correctly if you’re located in China, as Google Play doesn’t support in-app purchases there – this can also complicate restoring in-app purchases if you end up in China in the future.
