Purchasing Our Apps
All of the Tactus apps are available directly from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store, just like the other apps on your phone or tablet. The Apple App Store is for devices like an iPad or iPhone. The Google Play Store is for Android phones and tablets, and Chromebooks. You can pay using a credit card or gift card. These apps do NOT work on desktop or laptop computers.
If you haven’t purchased apps through the Apple App Store or Google Play Store before, you may need to set up an account.

TIP: Apple and Android are two different operating systems, so be sure to purchase apps using the App Store for Apple, and the Google Play Store for Android.
Once you have an account, you’re ready to make a purchase. The best way to buy our apps is directly on your phone or tablet.
TIP: Make sure you type and check the name of the app carefully. We have many apps that are named similarly (e.g. Language Therapy vs Advanced Language Therapy).
If you are browsing apps on a laptop or desktop computer: you can see the web preview of the app, but you cannot download our apps to a computer – you will need a mobile device on the iOS (Apple) or Android (Google) operating system. Our apps do NOT work on Amazon Kindle/Fire devices, Microsoft Surface tablets, or other non Apple/Android devices. They DO work on Chromebooks that have the Google Play Store installed.
If you want to upgrade the Lite version on your device: go to the home screen of the app and touch Buy Now to be taken to the app store to the full version. TIP: Delete the Lite app after you purchase the full version to avoid confusion as they are different apps. The full version doesn’t have the word ‘Lite’ on the app icon.
If you are purchasing apps for a business: the apps are available through Apple’s Volume Purchase Program (VPP) and Apple Business Manager. You can check the licensing requirements for multiple devices here.
If you’re still not sure on how to buy apps, Apple and Google have also provided great support articles on how to buy for their devices.
