How can I sign-in if I use Google's 2-step authentication

If you have 2-step authentication set up with Google, GrooVe Forwarder doesn't have a separate authentication process for this. However, Google makes available a method to add trusted services. To do so, you have to perform the following:

  1. Log into your Gmail account
  2. On the upper-right corner, click on your Gmail address (which has a small triangle pointing down), and select Account settings
  3. Click Authorizing applications & sites
  4. Verify your credentials if prompted
  5. Enter GrooVe Forwarder for the name of the application and click Generate password
  6. In GrooVe Forwarder, enter this password instead of your Gmail password (spaces don't matter)
  7. You should now be able to log in with GrooVe Forwarder

The app opens but I get an error saying the application is not licensed

The app uses the Android License Check. Sometimes the license check fails or the server returns an incorrect response. We've found restarting your device generally fixes the error. Another solution that worked for some people is to click Buy on the pop-up and then click open from the Android Market (it won't charge you again, it will take you to the Android Market)

Of course, if you are using a pirated version of the app, you will be getting the "Application Not Licensed" message for a legitimate reason!
