    Why is Triposo from Google Play not compatible with Nook HD?

      A few users reported that the World Travel Guide by Triposo app from Google Play cannot be installed on Nook HD.




      The actual error message is not very useful, as it does not say what exactly is missing from the device: """

      This app is incompatible with your BN LLC BNTV400.

      BN LLC BNTV400
      This item is not compatible with your device.




      Why exactly the app is not "compatible" with Nook HD?


      Below are the device features used by the app. We thought that the ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION might be blamed, but the app can work also without GPS (as the GPS sensor can very well be deactivated by the user).
