I am messing with SDR radio on Android ICS on my Joggler and came across an issue where the Play Store says the Joggler is not compatible however if I side load the APK , than it works ( no all features )
I want to purchase the full app and not the trial but it doesn't let me buy on the Joggler . Is there a way to fool the Play Store in to showing the app as available ?
@dwl99 maybe you have an idea . :-)
Any help greatly appreciated .

Hi Gary,

Buy it on your Android phone, copy the apk file to your SD card, upload it to Dropbox on your phone then install it from Dropbox on the Joggler. Simples!

PS there's a small chance it won't be compatible with the Joggler's x86 architecture or Android version in which case you'll get a parsing error. If this happens hopefully you'll discover it quickly enough to get a refund on the app purchase from Google Play store!

If that doesn't work you can try editing the Joggler's build.prop so it can masquerade as a phone but remember to back up an image of the USB drive first in case you break it!

The Kitkat version is unstable & will not boot after being shut down.
