What to do if the application is not compatible with your device
In the search for the necessary it is especially unpleasant to findcompletely suitable for requests program, which instead of the download button gives: "The application is incompatible with your device." Not to say that it causes panic, but the sediment remains unpleasant. Even more annoying when there is no other suitable application. How to proceed? What is the reason?
Why does this error occur?
The phrase "the application is incompatible with your device" Android writes on several occasions:
- Obsolete version of the firmware. "Android" continues to evolve, applications try to keep up with it.
- Location. Some developers put a restriction on the installation of their program in a particular country.
- Low characteristics of the smartphone. Developers believe that your device simply will not be able to function properly with this game or program.
No matter how terrible such reasons may sound, in principle, they are all "treated".
Such files are suitable in the event that the Play Store itself blocks downloading to your device. You can download APK-files either independently or by asking someone who understands such issues.
In order to install the application, to startyou need to visit the settings. There in the section "Security" near the subsection "Unknown sources" put a tick, thereby allowing the device to install applications not only from the "Market".
After the done operations, simply open theAPK-file as it would with a photo or a music track. After click "Next", and when the installation is complete, "Ok" - and use the program to the fullest.
In order to carry out this operation, do notbe sure to have extended rights, that is, rutting. The only thing they can use is to copy the APK file from the device on which the application is already installed.
The disadvantage of this method of solving the problemincompatibility of applications can be that the program will not be updated through the "Market", and as a consequence, if its new version will be released, all the above manipulations (other than security settings) will have to be done anew.
Market Helper application
This program is not in the "Market" and worksOnly on devices with enhanced access. The application will not make your phone better or smarter. The essence of the program is that it changes your identification and "Market" believes that your device is actually from another manufacturer or other model. Moreover, Market Helper allows you to change your geolocation data without getting up from the couch. This is ideal for applications not available in your area.
The principle of installing Market Helper is the same as with the APK files. After the installation and configuration is complete, the "application incompatible with your device" error should disappear.
If the application is not compatible with your deviceBecause of the restrictions imposed by the terrain in which you are, use the VPN tunnel routing. This method will allow you to transfer to another country where the server-router is installed. Of course, this method is not as reliable as the application of the program described above, but it's worth trying. In addition, this method does not require rut-rights, which is undoubtedly a virtue.
Each of these methods does not guarantee success. In some cases, you must force-clear the cache in the "Market". To do this, through the settings you need to stop it, clear the data, run the Market Helper or VPN and re-enable the "Market" itself. Remember that any changes in the settings are made by you at your own peril and risk.
Now you will not see the words "the application is incompatible with your device". What to do if it appeared in your loved ones, you already know.
