How To Download Incompatible Apps on Android Device – Guide

Ever had problems installing apps on Android? Well, I encountered problems and errors several times. Sometimes you may have encountered an error like “Your device is not compatible with this version” or “This app is not compatible with your device” in some apps on the Play Store. And this post is about installing incompatible Android apps from Google Play Store based on my personal experience. However, a few days ago I tried to install a certain app but I couldn’t. And at that moment I was so frustrated and wondering why this happened. Editing build.prop is a risky task. If you edit something unintentionally, you may end up up with a bricked device. To avoid this, we can use an application called “Market Helper” to spoof the model number without editing the build.prop file. It’s much easier, faster and safer than editing the build.prop file manually. Market Helper is not available on Google Play, so you need to manually download and install it from the developer’s website. Once installed, you can spoof your device to popular and powerful devices like Samsung Galaxy S3 or HTC One X. To undo the changes, simply restart your device. Keep in mind that apps marked as “incompatible” on Google Play may be incompatible.

Install country-restricted apps

If you get the notice saying “The app is not available in your country”, it means that this app can only be downloaded in certain regions. There are basically two ways to resolve this: using a VPN to pretend your device is in an available country, or downloading the app’s APK file outside of the Google Play Store.

Using a VPN

When using a VPN, you can mask your location and pretend your device is in the approved country. Search the app again on the Google Play Store and you will find that it is already available. There are many VPN apps to choose from on the market; Just download what you like best. Do not disconnect the VPN until you have full access to the region-restricted app. However, keep in mind that the Google Play Store can identify your real location if you are using a cellular network connection.

Install apk file

Another method is to download the app’s APK file from a trusted source and install it on your device. However, for security reasons, our phone is not allowed to download apps outside of Google Play Store from unknown sources by default. So, you must enable the use of unknown sources on your device first: If you can’t get the APK file download link from these sites, try APK Downloader. First copy the URL address of the Google Play Store app. Paste the URL into the APK Downloader website and then you will see the download link.

Install apps that aren’t compatible with your device

App developers may restrict the use of some apps on certain devices. So when downloading some apps, you get the message “The app is not compatible with your device”. How to deal with this situation? There is an amazing app called Market Helper that makes your device appear as another device available to the incompatible apps. Please note that the Market Helper app requires root access to your device.
