Default [Q] App not compatible with device screen size/resolution

I am trying to run an App (Nest thermostat app) that will install, however when I run the app a message pops up saying this app is not compatible with your device screen size/resolution and then closes. Is there a way to bypass this somehow?

Xoom 4g Stock Root

If you like my work, every little bit helps!

Reading the reviews on the Play Store, it seems that many people are asking for tablet support for the app. If the app really doesn't work on tablets, there is always the Nest website.

Hope that helps

Cheers

EDIT: If you read the description for the app on the Play Store, the developer has written "Nest Mobile doesn't currently work with Android tablets." It is at the bottom of the description.

Thanks for the help, I saw that in the description as well. I guess I was asking if there was anyway to change the code possibly in the APK to not check screen size. It seems a little hokie that it would even reference a screen size at all. Most APPs just blow up the image if the screen is a different size. Sorry if my question was unclear. Thanks.

I have to been looking into this. Attached is the APK if anyone smarter than me can remove this check for screen size. I hate being limited to just my phone.

Thanks again,
James
