    Hi
    I'm trying to get android apps like Facebook and BBC News but when I try and install them I get this message:
    "This app is incompatible with your Acer A500"
    Has anyone else seen this?
    Is there a way round it or is there a patch I'm missing?
    I have a feeling it's because those apps are written for Android Froyo or Gingerbread but I thought older were compatible with Honeycomb 3.1 (which is what I have installed) and were just resized to the larger display...
    Any help gratefully accepted!
    Thanks!

    I have found many Android apps dont work or crash Honeycomb. I have resorted to reading the reviews before downloading :)

    First, Google Earth works fine on the Acer.

    Where are you people downloading from that allows you to download incompatible apps?

    Hi - have just ordered my A500 so am doing a bit of research before it arrives. Where are you downloading your apps from so that you know it will be compatible with Honeycomb?
    thanks

    There are only two safe places
    Market.android.com
    Amazon.com

    With any android device you need a Google account (gmail) for the market.
    That's also the easiest way to purchase Apps or get free ones.
    Since the market is built right into android.

    @Icebike, what about Tegra Zone. They are a major site with apps designed specifically for the new tegra dual core tablets and they are run by Nvidia. Hardly an unsafe site for downloads. Just sayin..

    I've downloaded many apps for my Acer and Android phone. Never had any problems with apps not working. Those apps that don't run on the Iconia are clearly identified on the Android Market.

    I've got it running on my A500. Maybe you need to uninstall reboot and install again.

    yeah yeah, Icebike forgot to mention Tegra Zone. He is usually very thorough in his delivery. Honest mistake - we all make them. Best advice is stick to the 3 most known:

    Android Market
    Tegra Zone
    Amazon.com

    You can't expect noobs to know the tricks. Some have tried to run .exe files on their tablets. It takes a while to get the gist of things.
