    Hi.

    I was on the plane and I wanted to read my book in "books". However, when i selected the app, it would grey out and go into waiting/loading. Since wifi didn't work on the plane, i couldn't update the app and hence I could not use it during the long flight.

    This was extremely frustrating. Obviously wifi would be nice, but sometimes I don't have wifi access, so what can i do to access the app that is trying to update?

    Thanks

    Unfortunately, you can’t use the app until the app finishes updating. If there’s no internet available on the plane, you’ll have to wait until you arrive at your destination.
