android 2.3 avds you also can't install market on to do that :/
Why isn't it possible to download the apk file?
it may be that this app is really incompatible with your device,
there are 3 things which sometimes block me from installing apps from market:
- custom screen density (I have 180 set in build.prop), setting it back to 240 helps in some cases
- new market (3.x) seems to have some different rules for establishing compatibility, I've found that going back to the old version (2.x) solves most problems (one notable example being CoolReader, which absolutely refused to install under 3.x, and went smoothly from 2.x market), there's a nice app for switching between versions - Old Market
- Settings / Language - in some rare cases setting the language to English helps, although it's probably not the case with the app you want
