    Hi I was trying to download Order and Chaos and NOVA2 for my brand new Toshiba tablet. But it say the app cant be found, when I click the install button. Why cant Tablets play these games?

    Some apps, especially games, only properly run on certain setups. Maybe it doesn't run properly on the resolution of the Toshiba, maybe it is something else hardware related, or maybe there is something else entirely....

    ^ is from the O&C Market page https://market.android.com/details?id=com.gameloft.android.ANMP.GloftMMHM&feature=search_result

    ^ is NOVA2's market page. https://market.android.com/details?id=com.gameloft.android.ANMP.GloftN2HM&feature=search_result

    Maybe try and get in touch with them somehow, perhaps they are working on an update to get more devices compatible with it?

    It's like that with all Android devices (not just tablets). If your device doesn't meet the app's requirements then you won't see the app in the Market for the device.

    No. There are apps that are only for the iPad and not the iPhone, so I'm sure there are some iPhone only apps.

    Same thing that some apps are ios and not Android and vice versa

    How does IOS handle this issue? Is it possible for Android to also use this same tactic?
    I am thinking about taking my tablet back sadly. nothing I can do on it.

    Same os versions across devices and one oem so mostly everything is compatible across the devices. With android there are multiple hardware and software differences between devices that causes app incompatibility issues.

    No ****.
    The issue is the same for both. I was bringing up the point that just because something works for one, doesn't mean it works for another. The post I did was in response to the question if ios tablets, yes ipads as I said, had the same issue which I confirmed.

    Believe me there is FAR more compatibility between iphones and ipads then there are with android devices.

    What apps for iphone don't work on ipad? Serious queston, because I don't know.
