Then download the .apk from another device that's running the old 2.0.3 version, using airdroid against that device, apps, download button, and then install that on your Galaxy S2 again.

Plunkr Noughts And Crosses Game

Spent some time with my new favourite javascript online editor of the moment http://plunkr.co. I've found I can use my tablet, an iPad and even a smart phone to edit my HTML using this editor, although most of the time it's done using Google Chrome on a laptop.

My daughter and I find this game is best played with two wireless mouse devices plugged into the laptop, and you take it in turns to move the pieces into the squares.

P.S. Some hidden gems in Plunkr are the keyboard shortcuts:

Ctrl+S = Save
Ctrl+Up/ Ctrl+Down = Cycle through files
Ctrl+Enter = Preview / Run your code

To run the game, click here:
