    Figured it out....went through all of the Google apps on my phone, cleared cache and data files for all, and uninstalled updates for Google Play.

    Seemed to have solved the issue

    I think it may be from changing the lcd density but not sure. Changed it back but no luck.

    Any ideas what's going on?.....please help

    An LCD density change will cause this error even if you go back.

    Go into Settings > Applications, click Google Play store, clear cache, data, and uninstall updates
    Do the same thing with Google Services Framework

    Reboot, then re-add your Google account and let the Play Store re-update. That should fix it.

    This issue is caused mainly due to change on DPI. If you've changed the DPI, then revert it back to the original one. Next, clear the data and cache of the Play Store (Market) application. If possible uninstall the updates. Then, Force Stop it and reboot the device once. Next, reinstall the Play Store (Market) application. Now, change the DPI

    Hello. I have the same problem... What does DPI stand for?

    dpi - dots per inch. essentially a measure of resolution.
    aka ppi (pixels per inch)

    NO problem !!
    Do the following steps:
    1. Download the installation file from WhatsApp for Android to your PC
    2. Connect your phone to the PC with the usb cable
    3. Copy the installation file whatsapp.apk to the whatsapp directory of your phone
    4. Disconnect the cable
    5. Go to the whatsapp dir of your phone. If you do not have an app that can do this download it from play store for free. The simplest is APK Installer or else ASTRO file/cloud manager.
    6. Make sure that your phone allows installing of non-market apps
    7. Simply click whatsapp.apk using the apk installer

    Behold: Now your device is suddenly compatible with the new version !!

    Hi, I've had the same issue with a tablet that I reset to factory defaults: after that many apps I had are reported as not compatible.

    What's that Market Helper? Where do I get it from?
