So, Google Play Market said “not compatible with my device”?

I wanted a specific app for my android tablet. But according to Google Play, it wouldn’t work on my tablet.

This not being the first time I’ve seen this, nor do I think it will be the last. Oddly enough, if I circumvent their ‘download prevention’ by installing it on my Android phone, then using ApkManager to make a back up of it. Copied the apk to my desktop, then moved it to my tablet, installed it and it works just fine.

Personally, they should leave them to be downloaded and have the device toss up an error message saying it won’t work.
