Info 2 Nexus 7 App Incompatibility List

Was searching the market for apps only to find out some apps are not available/compatible with our tablet, including some which I've previously paid for e.g FIFA 12. This thread is so we can establish which apps are confirmed to to be not available or working. Just reply with the name of the app and whether it is just unavailable on the Google Play Store, or the actual .apk did not work.
Tip: If an app is not compatible emailing the developer via the Play Store may help, as was the case with one app I encountered.

Code:
A
Adobe Flash Player - Unavailable but working
Amazing Alex - Unavailable Now available and Working
Adobe Photoshop Touch - Unavailable
Audubon Guides - Unavailable but working
B
BBC iPlayer - Unavailable but working (must have flash and 3rd party Browser)

I had specifically wanted to get Dead Space and Mass Effect Infiltrator with my Google Play credit but to my dismay both came up as "Your device isn't compatible with this version". However, taking my old rooted Epic 4G, and modding my build.prop to allow me to purchase both and taking the APK files onto my stock Nexus 7, both install and play just fine. Annoyed that I had to go through such hoops to buy and install the games I wanted but worked out in the end.

True, but I thought this thread was covering that category of apps too.

The latest version of Dead Trigger does not work. The previous version did.

Microsoft OneNote does not work.
