Pokemon Jukebox on Android seems like a terrible investment

Totally ‘free’ to download

Are you an Android gamer looking for an official Pokémon app that’s free, cross device compatible and integrates with your existing apps in helpful ways? Well, don’t go near Pokémon Jukebox if you know what’s good for you.

Advertised as free to download, the app allows you to purchase songs from the history of Pokémon for $0.99 ($1.99 for medleys), which are locked to that instance of the app on that phone. You can’t play these songs in your standard music library or transfer them in any way.

So yeah, if you want to buy individual Pokémon tracks feel free, but probably don’t do it using this app. The user interface is a bit rubbish and everything is incredibly locked down.
