This question already has an answer here:

I'm using Sony Xperia S (also I have old SE Xperia X10 Mini) and want to install mytaxi app. But Google Play says that I'm not eligible to do this and I do not understand why! I've found an apk in the internets and it works fine, but I want to know the reason and have updates.

  • Doesn't it give any reason along ­­– such as "not compatible with any of your devices" or "not available in your country"? What is the exact wording? – Izzy Sep 19 '13 at 21:48
  • @Izzy it says "This app is incompatible with all of your devices." – madhead Sep 19 '13 at 22:19

    Contact the developer and let them fix it. – ce4 Sep 19 '13 at 22:25

    This problem is rather frequent and only the developers can fix it. Reason is probably that the app wants features like GPS, certain screen sizes or a minimum Android version. One of those requirements is not met although it runs just fine. Tje devs need to relax that declaration... – ce4 Sep 19 '13 at 22:36

    @ce4 - Probable reason is forgetting to include android:required="false" in a <uses-feature> declaration. It defaults to true if not included, making the feature mandatory rather than optional. – Compro01 Sep 19 '13 at 22:50

This problem is rather frequent and only the developers can fix it.

Reason is probably that the app wants features like GPS, certain screen sizes or a minimum Android version. One of those requirements is not met although it runs just fine.

So the obvious way to get this fixed is to contact the developers and have them relax that declaration..
