Hey my buddy bought a Mi Traveler tablet. A basic tablet that is running on 2.2 android. I'm trying to figure out why many popular apps wont show up on the market. I've been able to manually install apps by finding their apk file online, but I'd really like to get the market store to work correctly. Is there a simple fix without installing a whole new rom or what ever it is called.

I'm noobish here, so I'd be thankful for any help.

Not too familiar with that tablet.

Does it run the official Android Market/Play Store?

What apps specifically are you looking for? They might require a version of Android higher than 2.2.

From what I could tell it was the official marketplace. I did download the playstore.apk to upgrade it to the current market form. Thinking that might help. All it really did was update the graphics of the market. Apps like facebook, angry birds, just the normal ones most folks download. How does the market decide what apps you can run? Android version, hardware, device name?

As far as I know, app developers can set flags like minimum Android version and minimum screen resolution.

2.2 is rather ancient now and like most cheap tablets the screen resolution is probably bad. Those two things will make it incompatible with many apps. With 4.0 out and 4.1 on the horizon many apps will start to leave Froyo and Gingerbread behind. Just like you can't expect a PC running Windows 95 to run all of today's apps, there comes a time when the older versions of Android just aren't going to cut it anymore.
