There have been several reports that Knots 3D will not install on some older Samsung devices due to cache limitations on these devices. The devices I am aware of are Samsung Captivate and Samsung Galaxy S. The Samsung Captivate is AT&T’s version of the Samsung Galaxy S.

Other Variants of Samsung Galaxy S (Released Early 2010):

  • Samsung Captivate (ATT)
  • Samsung Epic 4G (Sprint)
  • Samsung Fascinate (Verizon)
  • Samsung Vibrant (T-Mobile)

The error message some people are getting: “Error Downloading Insufficient space on device”

This error comes despite plenty of free space on both external and internal storage ie > 1GB. Since Knots 3D is around 33MB at present, why this error message? Well, it turns out that the memory the error message is referring to is the cache partition. The cache size limit on these Samsung devices is 30MB. This means any app, including ours, larger than 30MB, is more than likely seeing this issue. This is a device specific environment thing and completely outside the control of Knots 3D, Google Play, Amazon, etc. There is nothing we can do although a possible workaround (try at your own risk) is mentioned in a link below. If the free version (13MB) of Knots 3D is installing successfully, then that also confirms this might be the cause of the problem.
