    I'm trying to install an app but it keeps failing and giving me the message above. I've read that you have to go to your apps and uninstall a previous version of the app but I've already uninstalled the previous version. Not sure why I keep getting this message but any suggestions would help out.

    Thanks guys.

    I found a work around bud. I installed this app called Apk Editor from the play Store. It allows you to change the signature of an app so that you can install two apps that might have had the same signature. Try it out it'll probably work.

    Which app?

    Uninstall current version after deleting app data
    Delete any folder belonging to the app in internal memory
    Reboot to recovery and wipe system cache
    Reboot
    Try installing new version

    Are you getting a Play Store error?

    Funny, you guys have read the first post but it seems to me you didn't read any further or just didn't mention you tried this:

    Edit: the first 3 are old post, so thy probably don't count and might have solved the issue.

    If you are trying to install an app that is modded you have to uninstall every app from that company. So if you have a modded app from Gameloft you have to delete ALL Gameloft games!

    But why use a workaround like that? That kind of a problem shouldn’t happen in the first place.

    Tbh, I really don't know. Who knows what app the OP meant and where it came from. There is very little information to go on in either of these posts and replies.

    tried that and it's the same. I've uninstalled two more apps including data from the same company, but it's the same scenario...

    Don't know what to tell you, maybe it is not compatible with the device?

    Can you please mention all the probable file locations of any application that may save the data in the device. I've searched in search option in file manager and in my computer by connecting the device - not found anything. Want to know any other probable locations with different file name of this app..... 'SBI Anywhere Personal' is the application....
