I have bought a new Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 for my wife who is a Scrabble fan. Tried to download Scrabble EA and it results in 'Downloaded' 'This app is not compatible with this device.' Please will somebody help me to resolve this issue before we go on holiday. I am not a computer expert but can follow instructions. Thanks. Davidhalfpenny

Welcome to Android Central! Were you trying to install the Scrabble app from Google Play Store, or somewhere else?

When I search for "scrabble ea" on my computer I find it. But when searching on my Tab S, I don't seem to find it. Odd.

App compatibility as determined by Google Play can be cryptic. I wish they could give more details when they say it's incompatible. It may be related to the device's chipset, screen resolution, or other vague issues.

I just want to know if it is possible, somehow, to download AND USE the Scrabble app on the Samsung GalaxyTab S 10.5.......... Why should it not be compatible on this specific model whereas it is usable on smaller sized Galaxy Tab S? Does AE know about this and if so are they going to make it available. If not, why not?

Does the playstore have contact info? You could try contacting and asking.

FWIW, I just now downloaded Scrabble EA from the Google Play Store to my Tab S, and it installed and opened OK. The Scrabble version is 5.1.1.732817. I'm uninstalling it now.
David, you said it's a new Tab S, so make sure it has been updated. My Tab S is running on Lollipop 5.0.2. Good luck.
