Why can't i install it?

Uninstalled because i wanted to change BitPurse password.

Now it won't install. It wants to download more data and it fails everytime.

You probably have a repository that isn 't available anymore. Blocking the apt-get update process.

This app has one of the most innovative and beautiful splashscreens I have ever seen. Very clever.

Of course its a top notch app. Eveything works.
