That's not how paid Android apps from the Google store are supposed to work.

There's more than a single developer doing these Casio/TI clone efforts and they're generally all based in East Asia (and display scant regard to intellectual property).

I own the Ncalc based on the fx-991ex on both iOS and Android and have never had any problems installing it on multiple devices (they also make an Ncalc product based on one of the TI graphic calcs). The version on Android is called CalcES as it was launched before the latest upgrade to 991ex but is functionally identical to the iOS product (both allow you to set up the interface using 991es or 991ex conventions).

My partner and I have 4 kids at various stages of the education system and I pick up various calculator apps and set them up on Family Share (both the Android and iOS flavours). They all have physical Primes, both physical Casio CG50's and fx991ex's (the CG50 is clunky in many ways but is by far the best graphing calc - even without the Primes touch-screen) and one wanted a Classpad too, but sold it as it was painfully slow. We instead have a family subscription to, which wraps up all of the Classpad features into a web-app (it came in very handy at the height of COVID). Best of all, the subscriptions include free subscriptions to the Classpad calculator emulator on both iOS and Android. Classpad has always been the best of the tablet-style calculators and coupled with the speed of a modern tablet/pen combo makes for a very powerful option.

The eldest has recently grown attached to my 50g but stands no chance of getting their filthy paws on it permanently!
