    What a waste to only make it for a couple devices using Android. MS owns a good stake in Android now it only benefits then to see it grow

    Why in the world wouldn’t this be compatible with all current Android phones?! Absolutely ridiculous. You guys aren’t doing this out of your garage. You’re a gigantic company making an app for a gigantic franchise. Really, really preposterous.

      I think you should blame the fragmented Android platform rather than the developer of the app.

        I could do that, but then I’d be a fool.

        I get if they want to limit it to the newest Android versions (this app even says Android 2.2 and up). That’s fine. But come on, they can’t even make it work within the stated compatibility limits. Countless apps work just fine on all kinds of Android devices. There’s no valid excuse for this.

        Fragmentation is unlikely to be the actual cause given the app’s featureset. Different resolutions, varying 3D graphics capabilities…these things can affect how well apps perform on a device. Alternately, an app may have been targeted for a specific device due to an uncommon feature (such as the HDMwiN app for the Evo 4G, which provides improved support for its HDMI-out). Lastly, there are apps such as the ones for Netflix (no longer an issue there, but it used to be) and Hulu Plus, where fragmentation is a problem more easily attributed to lawyers rather than programmers — the apps will frequently work on devices not explicitly approved if the APK is edited to include such devices on its internal whitelist, but the content providers may complain for whatever reason.

        If there is an actual reason beyond developer incompetence for the large number of devices that the app supposedly does not work on, the most likely culprit would be the ATLAS service. If the data is already built into the app (rather than being provided as a separate download when payment is rendered), then this may be a poorly thought out attempt at preventing rooted devices from bypassing the payment requirement. (I say poorly thought out because not only is it reported to work on the HP Touchpad — a device which had no official Android release in the first place, but that methods such as the Android Market Licensing service already exist which can be used for such purposes.)

      Sweet, didn’t know the Bungie app was available on Android yet. 

      Super lame that the Waypoint app has some stupid unspecified restriction. Thought it was an issue with my custom firmware, tried it on a stock G2 and had the same issue. Lame.

    I don’t know if this app is available in other countries beside The Greatest Country In The World (US) but in Poland isn’t available for download in Android Market. Dear Major Nelson, what should I do now? I have bought games in Poland even without subtitles in Polish. Do I need to return my games to retailer since they probably was imported illegally or they have ‘licensing’ problems of some kind?

      I’d think that it will take a little while for the App to become approved in the various localized stores. Be patient, check again in *shrugs* 2 days?

        well actually it’s apps like this that cause the illusion of fragmentation. There’s no reason why none of my phones can run the app; HTC Sensation, Samsung Galaxy S or LG Optimus 2X… but there you go. None of them can install it. The only Android devices I can install it on are my Asus EeePad Transformer, and rather bizarrely, my EeePC, which isn’t even an official Android thing.

    Please don’t release or announce the release of high-profile apps like this unless it is proven to work on all “supported” devices.  HTC Android devices are incompatible with the app right now, regardless of Droid OS version.  Rage.

    Seriously needs to increase its compatibility range to include all the phones that SHOULD be compatible, according to the listed minimum requirements. Too bad you have to download an app from the Android Market before you can rate it. If you could rate based on incompatibility, this app would likely have a very low rating.

      It’s a great job that you have to download the App before rating it, that means YOU give your own opinion and not those of the masses around you.  I think props should be given to Microsoft for developing on different platforms, you don’t see Android making apps for iOS???
