maybe it'd be possible to use a data-uri instead of this thread as download page?

Sorry for the late response, but I've been on holiday. For those of you who still get the error "ERROR: Cannot download this app!" for an app that should be downloadable(!!), please provide a link to the app. If you get this error for ALL apps, than please leave this info as well.

@XlAfbk: I don't think so, but I'd need to check on that.. If know how to, let me know.

This one won't work for me https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...l0LmxvY2tlciJd

How do I know if a free app is supposed to be downloadable?

Sadly, it still doesn't support most of the apps I attempt to download. Here's a list:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...WQudGFibGV0Il0.

https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...C5hbmRyb2lkIl0.

https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...C5hbmRyb2lkIl0.

https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...XIubW9iaWxlIl0.

https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...LmFuZHJvaWQiXQ..

https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...YXJnZXQudWkiXQ..

https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...LmFuZHJvaWQiXQ..

https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ImNvbS5xdmMiXQ..

https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...lkLnRhYmxldCJd

That's just a few.

I'm thinking that Google corrected some of the coding in Chrome as it regards to the Play Store to prevent people from downloading apps that WILL work with your devices, but still declare them incompatible.

I also notice this problem. Didn't worked with any app that Google was saying to be incompatible with my device.

I had no problems downloading the app with the extension (find attached). Is it labeled as compatible with your device in the play store?

I was able to download the apps that are labeled as compatible in play store. The Huffington Post and the CNN link were for Tablets only, so they failed. But when I tried their apps for phones, I was able to download those as well.

You can't know. But if you set up everything correct, you can be almost sure that you can download all apps that are labeled as compatible with your device in Play Store. Me personally, I never found an app that was labeled as compatible and I was not able to download it via the extension. Whenever it is labeled as compatible, I can download it.

@Felimenta97: There're a few exceptions; for a few apps I was able to download them even though the Play Store said it would be incompatible. However, as said above, a general rule of thumb is that you will be able to download only the apps that are labeled as compatible for your device.

I see. But if you could work on that it would be nice. Some apps work on my phone, just play store is crazy about that.

I tried modding the extension but for some reason it even fails with localhost instead of this thread, just replacing the 1 line containing the url *confused* (not a chrome extension guy so probably missing something there. more of a web dev)
Maybe if you'd explain why that is and why it needs some site in the first place I'd be able to figure it out.
