I love Bejeweled. Lovely game.
I installed it on my Nook Color, then turned my wifi off and went to play it.
When I open it, I get a pop-up message saying "Unable to purchase: Please enable Wi-Fi and connect to an access point to continue."
When I clear that off, there's another, saying "Error! Unable to authorize for use on your Android device."
When I turn wifi on and connect to my house's internet, it works fine.
I know the charge went through ok. There is more than enough $ in my account for a little three dollar game.
I've tried archiving/unarchiving, and that did nothing.
I went to look at the reviews, and some people have been emphatically swearing wifi isn't needed. So I ask you people saying that: How did you fix it?
Having wifi on constantly does such horrible things to my battery life. I usually have access to wifi when I feel like playing (home/work/cell phone hot spot), but still, that's wasteful.

Agree with you 100%. Went through the same problem yesterday. I think they should have told us wi-fi connection was needed in order to play. Total waste of my money.

I was able to play it last night, after initial load, as I was still connected to wifi, waiting on the update to push down. Didn't get the update, and was very disappointed when I tried to show a coworker how Bejeweled looks and got nothing but error messages. Hopefully someone is contacting popcap & the porting company to fix this.
I can't recommend that anyone buy it without this fix. All the games are power drains to start with, but having to keep wifi on, playing one game last night, used 8 percent of the power. Game lasted 10 minutes or less.

I was just coming on to post the same thing. I wish I had seen this before I bought the app. I hope they fix the bug soon because I normally want to play when I'm in places where I do not have wifi access (court waiting for my case to be called, the kid's schools, parking lots, etc.)

Agree with nerdymama - I don't have wifi in my house - only cable internet - and play it all the time. I get the same warning to connect every 9 times to check for updates, but playing it offline has been effortless. Don't know why you're having the trouble...
