-==== What are the differences between both versions? ====+===== What are the differences between both versions? ​=====
  
-The Lite version ​is a free and time-unlimited application ​offering a subset of the complete version.+AlpineQuest ​Lite is a free version (no ads, not limited in timeoffering ​only a subset of the complete ​(paid) ​version.
  
-Differences ​are listed by features ​[[:en|in the main description page]].+All differences ​are [[http://​www.alpinequest.net/​compare|listed here]].
  
-==== Is it safe to remove the Lite version after installing the complete one? ====+\\
  
-Yes. It's even recommended so you don't start it by inadvertence,​ and it will free space.+===== I have just purchased the application on the Play Store, but the download doesn't start or fails =====
  
-All your cached maps and saved landmarks are shared by both versions, ​and are not removed when you un-install any version.+This is a Google Play issue and unfortunately there is nothing we can do in this case. You just need to wait some time and the download will start. If the problem persists, ​you can contact [[https://​support.google.com/​googleplay/​contactflow?​hl=en|the Google Play support]].

- +
-==== Why don't my MemoryMap maps work in AlpineQuest?​ ==== +
- +
-AlpineQuest doesn'​t support the new MemoryMap format (.QC3 file extension)as well as encrypted maps. You can use the free Lite version ​to check if your maps are compatible. +
