    Can anyone advise me why I cannot install Words for Friends (Scrabble clone) on my Galaxy Fit.
    It tells me that the app is incompatable with my device.
    The specs say that I need Android 2.1 or better whereas the Fit has Android 2.2

    Merlin54,

    Welcome to the AndroidForums!

    The only thing I can think of is that there's a screen resolution requirement for the app that the Market and/or the app/developer is imposing (to keep you from having a bad user experience with the app).

    Here's an excerpt from the Words with Friends support website (The Zynga With Friends Helpdesk):

    Q: Why can’t I find the game on the Android Market?

    A: There are two requirements to run Words Android: 1) you have to be running Android version 2.1 or higher. 2) your screen size must be at least 320
