Special Note on Installation:

To install this app on your iPad, you’ll temporarily need more space than is stated on the iTunes store page, up to 6.0Gb. Once the app is installed, it goes back to 2.0Gb. If this is an issue, there are two possible solutions, the first option being the ideal:

  1. Download the title to your PC/Mac via iTunes and then sync with your iPad, which eliminates the need for extra space. Re-downloading via iTunes on a PC or Mac will not cause you to be charged twice, providing you are signed into the same iTunes account as on your iPad.
  2. Temporarily remove some data from your iPad to clear space, and then you can put it back on your iPad once the app has been installed.
