Hi,

I find that some apps seem to be incompatible with rooted Nook HD+. These are NY Times app, Zagat and Yelp. Especially in the case of NY Times app, I tried even older versions, but no luck. Anybody has other thoughts?

Thank you.

Regards,

Have you tried sideloading the apps directly from their respective sites?

Those same apps or Play Store just saying some are incompatible? If the latter, it does not mean they won't run, just that Play Store won't let you install them. Get them somewhere else.

Use Real APK Leecher to download apks from Play Store. You can create second gmail account and use your Android phone "device id" for this program if you wonder about your own security and anonymity.

Lightbulb Titanium Backup is what worked for me.
Looks like you need Titanium Backup, even though is priced, it's worth every penny.

You will need (like me) a spare rooted phone which had the applications I couldn't install in my HD+.

Watch this official video from TB, it will show you how it's done:

ES File explorer let's you back up apps. (Or maybe you need Task Manager as well. Both are free anyway and open from within the File Explorer).
Much to my surprise both my phones let me backup and "extract" apps without being rooted.
