The Google Play Store is a huge repository of apps. Every day, many new apps are added to the Google Play Store. However, there are some apps which are needlessly restricted on certain devices. If the app/game meets all the system requirements but still it is incompatible, there is a way to download them from the Google Play Store. For this purpose an app named Market Helper will be have to be used. It is not available on the Google Play Store. It will work on Android 2.3 and above.


Market Helper spoofs an individual’s Android to help download the incompatible apps. The user can spoof his/her device to make it look to Google like a Galaxy S3, Kindle Fire HD, classic Amazon Kindle, or an HSPA+ Nexus 7. The entire procedure just takes a few seconds to complete. And after downloading the specific app, it is possible to return to the original state. This app does not touch any system settings which makes it easier and safer. However, the users should try this at their own risk.



  1. Download the Market Helper apk file and place it on the SD card.
  2. Use a file manager like ES File Manager to install Market Helper app.
  3. Open the app and select the device you want to change to ( [P] = Phone, [T] = Tablet ).
  4. Now tap on “Activate” and wait for it’s completion.
  5. After this, a prompt will appear asking the user to go to Google Dashboard.
  6. Go to Google Dashboard to update the change. The user needs to just visit the page and not do anything else.
  7. After this, install the apps that you want to.
  8. If the user wants to switch back to normal, select “Restore” in device list and press “Activate”. Reboot the device.

It must be noted that many apps will be compatible but not all of them will work. It depends from one device to another.
