A list of Android apps not compatible (for various reasons) with the Lenovo A1 tablet:
- Opera Mini Web Browser
- Posterous Spaces
- ES File Explorer 1.6.1 update (18.104.22.168 is already installed!)
- Dolphin Browser HD (Mini is compatible)
It seems that other people started wondering about the same issue, but still I haven’t found any solid answer to the cause of this incompatibility.
Strange, huh? Can be installed in my cheap Android phone but not in A1…
**EDIT – 06/02/2011**: It seems that a large part of the incompatibility of A1 with Android apps was due to a strange combination of changed screen density to 200dpi (instead of the native 240dpi) and the new version of the Android Market. So, when I changed the screen density back to 240 dpi & uninstalled the Market update, I could install my long missed apps, like Opera Mini, Airtickets.gr, FXCamera, Google+ etc. The issue was solved by XDA user TippyTurtle, to whom I am grateful!
**EDIT – 21/02/2011**: I just installed Popsci and realized that it works both in 200 and in 240 dpi! Yay!
Apps still incompatible with Lenovo A1:
- Quill (Requires Android 3.1)
- Google Goggles
- Handy Scanner Free PDF Creator
List will be frequently updated; please make sure that you come back soon and contribute to this list with your own incompatible Android apps!
