    If you look in the market today, they are having an amazing sale. apps like minecraft, swiftkey and paper camera are all £0.10 or the equivalent currency. So I was quite upset to find out that apparently none of these are compatible.

    I have tried two of the apps before and they've worked fine. Is anyone else getting this problem? I've tried the old and new markets and no luck with either. Tried.clearing cache etc but still nothing

    Worked fine for me. What's actually happening when you try to install?

    Have you tried via the web interface?

    When I try I get the 'this app is incompatible with your desire HD' message. I've tried via the website as well and get the same message. Very strange.... I've used the swiftkey demo before with no issues, now it says it wont work

    I've only gone to the market on my computer, but it's telling me that it's available for my DHD!

    I'm using BlackICE 1.25.

    Now that you mention it, I have not had this problem before using Sense or CM7, so could it possible be an issue with the ROM?

    It could be, I'm running SwiftkeyX on this phone and it installed without any problem. Android 2.3.5, Sense 3.5 ROM.

    Would you believe it - the new batch of the sale is out, and all of the apps are compatible :/

    I did get Beautiful Widgets for 10p which is cool, but I really wanted Swiftkey and paper camera - but to be honest they are things I would pay full price for anyway. Not a good time to be spending money on apps though, my family will be wondering where their Christmas presents are :p

    I got some of them but things like Minecraft and SoundHound did not offer me the 10p price. I have written the Google to ask why

    I think things are only on sale @ 10p for a limited time (like 1 day)... I thought I might as well get beautiful widgets, even though I'm not sure I'd use it (only 10p - why the hell not)!

    Just a heads up, if the dev of these apps doesn't have a UK based market account, your bank may be charging you for the transaction. So the 12-13p (the extra 2-3p is for Gideon and his boys) may actually equate to a bit more when your bank processes the transaction.

    Oh dear... this isn't great news... I've been splashing out on stuff I wouldn't really have bothered with. I guess it's not like it's gonna be an extra

    I've got Shazam, but not the full paid version. Wouldn't bother normally, but I'd use the functionallity of unlimited, so think I'll have to get it!

    After switching ROMs to RcMix, I have had no problem with getting any of the apps in the sale :)

    Todays ones aren't to my fancy though, hopefully they'll be some good ones tomorrow

    It's def a ROM issue, I tried Black Ice this morning and couldn't download certain apps either. I also had issues restoring the G+ app via Titanium. The issue's mentioned in the black Ice thread on XDA and after trying some of the fixes my market kept FC'ing. I tried via the astro and the apk, that errored, it also wouldn't even install via adb.

    In the end, I went back to CM7 and everything works flawlessly. Tis a shame, I really, really liked the look of Black Ice.

    Once I had changed ROMs, I checked the market and I had about ~25 apps that needed an update. Turns out these ones weren't compatible with Blackice so they never came through to update when they were released.

    I asked in the xda thread about this, and the problem everyone seems to have is that the DPI is changed down to 200 by default instead of 240, and the market doesn't seem to like it. A lot of people simply changed it back up to 240, but that would not work for me.

    Indeed it is a shame, because it is a very good rom, it is so insanely fast and the battery life is fantastic. I also liked that the notification bar got a tweaking with some new logos.
