Help! I Need To Play Pogo Games On My Phone

The answers you gave in Pogo Games on Android tablets are not the answers I was looking for.

I was a PAYING MEMBER FOR SEVERAL YEARS…I paid annually. I played every single day…all thru out the day…for years. I made close friends…I loved Pogo.
Then my laptop got stolen. Since then I cant afford a new laptop…I only have Android phone. I swear…I’m going thru withdrawals not being able to get on Pogo.

The app in the Google Play store only limits u…its like a tease…like here’s some candy kid…but u cant have any.
I’m looking for a 100% SAFE AND AUTHENTIC DOWNLOAD…(I think its an APK but not sure)…so I can sign on into Pogo AND PLAY ALL THE GAMES I USED TO PLAY AND DO ALL THE THINGS I USED TO DO ON MY LAPTOP.  I KNOW THERE IS A WAY to program Java on a Android phone to enable too play on Pogo. I”m just not sure EXACTLY how yet…

BUT…Im NOT going to stop looking til I find it. Do you by chance, know how this can be done? Please?

 Sharon – there’s no download that’s going to enable you to do all of the thing things on an Android phone that you can do on your tablet, including play Flash and Java-based games.  Flash is not compatible with later versions of Android by design. The folks at Google feel it’s too problematic and not secure and don’t want it on devices running the Android operating system. Java has major security issues as well. A whopping 93% of all web attacks originate from issues with Java.

There are some tricks that might allow you to run Flash on your Android tablet, but you’ll have two big issues. Since Flash is no longer supported, there are stability issues. You can expect crashes and other problems.  That also means there are no security updates for Flash in Android, which could leave you wide open to attackers.

Also, it just plain doesn’t always work. I tried a method outlined at Androidcentral to install Flash on my Android tablet and it didn’t work at all. Also be aware that monkeying around and installing Flash or Java could invalidate the warranty on your phone. And even if you got those sites to open on your phone, the play experience would not be optimal and the display would likely be weird. Apps designed for your Android phone are you best bet for a good play experience.

You might just end up messing up your phone and then you won’t have any devices to play games on. The best option I could suggest for you is a used laptop or a tablet that runs the full version of Windows 8.1. You might be able to pick up either of those in the $200 range.  It’s also not a bad idea for POGO users to let the company know that you want the full range of games available in app form. The more requests they have from players, the more likely they are to make that happen.

    I just did a search on and I found laptops for less than $200. If you just play Pogo and get email and don’t do anything risky like Facebook 😉 you can get a windows XP laptop for under $100 I would be willing to bet you can find a decent laptop on Craig’s List or in a yard sale or thrift shop for less than $50. Just be careful and make sure that it works before you buy it. Ask your friends if they play other games like “King” (candy crush saga, bubble witch 2 Saga etc), or do they play the “With Friends” series (words, draw, draw 2) or Zynga games (Farmville 2, Pioneer trail, etc…) these are just as fun as pogo and you will get to play with your friends and make new ones.

      Keith – for goodness sake, do not buy an XP computer to play Flash games! Flash has a lot of security issues and playing flash games on an XP computer is incredibly risky.
