Android Market Helper

http://codekiem.com/2013/02/13/market-helper/
This app tricks the app store into thinking you have a different device, a Nexus 7 for instance.
This doesn't change your build prop and using it is dead simple. Run it, choose the device you wish to emulate from the drop down list.
click the link for google dashboard, which registers the device as the one you are emulating. Go to play store, download the app you want.
When you're done, reboot the tablet or go back to the mrket helper app and choose restore.

It works as advertised.

Re: Must have app if you use the Google Play store
Are you logging in to the Google dashboard and verifying the emulated device is listed? I use nexus 7. Works fine for me.

I can confirm this one works, it allow me to install angry birds from the playstore, otherwise it marks as not compatible with my device. looks like i can get rid of the 1mobile market.
