I can't download big apps without without getting error 18

I keep getting error 18 on a few apps even though I got the memory for it and the apps I try to download are compatible with my device and my software is up to date. I already tried a factory reset to but that didn't work and I emailed the play store but they were no help telling me to upgrade my internet which I already did so I am not sure what to do now. I will be extremely grateful for some help solving this issue.

Error 18 states I don't have the memory for the app and I went through the troubleshooting guide from the playstore to. Nothing worked


Hi, can you contact the app developer and verify that the specs required to run the app are correct?


I actually haven't done that yet I will try that and get back to you.


I just emailed the app developers I should get a response tomorrow

I found out why I can't download certain apps and it's because of an unknown problems between the google play store and the apps and Google play store is looking into the problem.

Can you try installing the app you want by searching for the 'name of app'.apk file, (if it is available online) and then installing it in your tablet?


Is this a RAM issue? I know I had problems with other android devices...


No the problem lies within the google play store itself and the play store is working on the issue. The play store techs think it has to do with all the updates these apps do and that the coding of a lot of the new apps is getting jumbled up somehow. I do know that this issue came up when someone decided to make it easier to make apps and thus changing the coding system.


Good to know @meepfish1 . Thanks
