Hi there,

I have just bought a Samsung Galaxy Y, and I would like to download Instagram, Androminion and Draw Something.
All of which are available on the Android network, but don't seem to be available for me?
Is there a setting I need to change?
Or is it just that the Samsung can't handle it?


Would appreciate any help?

Thanks :)

I tried on a Nexus and Galaxy S2 and they all show up and download fine.   The Nexus is Android 4.02 and the S2 is android 2.3.3
   Not sure if you can access the store if you arent signed in but are you signed in with gmail account etc.

It's probably a case of screen resolution and screen size.

You may be able to download the app from somewhere like XDA, and then sideload it onto your device.

It may also be possible to "trick" the Google Play store into thinking you are able to run the app, but that usually requires root access, and a small bit of know-how.

Probably right... wife has a low resolution droid also - wouldn't install Draw Something -  but I just downloaded from another site and side loaded it.

Seems to work fine but some text overlaps and has the odd force close. Worked for a Telecom Moto Fire and a friends Samsung GT-i5503t. 

Would give you the link but it might be against the FUG? plus as its not from official Play Store so I can not vouch for its security.

Have fun its a great game!
