Thread Closed Email Thread
We all know the Simple Touch is running an ancient version of Android, and there's tons of popular apps that don't work. But there's actually a large amount of apps that do work with the NST, just older versions. I decided to make a small repository for older versions of apps that work with the NST (and other Android 2.1 devices as well).
Books & References
  • Google Play Books¹ (1.0.6) - APK
  • Aldiko Book Reader (2.1.0) - APK
  • Dictionary.com (3.1) - APK
  • Merriam Webster (2.1) - APK
  • Bible (2.4.1) - APK

News & Magazines
  • BBC News (1.3.4) - APK
  • CNN (1.2.0) - APK
  • Engadget (1.9.5.1) - APK

Productivity
  • Evernote (5.1.3.2) - APK
  • Opera Mini (12.1.4) - APK
  • Google Drive (1.2.228) - APK
  • PerfectViewer (1.9.2.2) - APK

Social
  • Plume for Twitter² (5.03) - APK

Games
  • Angry Birds³ (2.2.0) - APK

¹ Cannot view books manually uploaded to Play Books, there is a newer version that can but has major issues on the NST
² May have issues signing in to Twitter
³ Screen refresh bugs

These are just the first few apps, I'm going to be uploading many more as time goes on. Please feel free to leave a suggestion, and I'll do my best to find a version that works under Android 2.1 and the NST

This is a great idea and should be sticky'd.

I had trouble with newer versions of Dropsync - I would recommend 1.68 APK for that application. You can read my thoughts here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...67&postcount=7

Some apps still install fine from Play Store, for others certain old ones with version numbers I have working can mostly be found with a little googling:

Thank you so much for posting all these apps - glad to find so much stuff that is working on my freshly rooted NST.

One question: The Kindle app can't seem to find my personal documents, and apparently that's an issue with Google Books, too. Does anyone know, how to get the Android-2.1.-kindle to recoginize my documents?

Or: Does anyone know of another e-reader that does the whole syncing of the last page read like Kindle and Google books?

I love being able to read on my phone and my e-reader without constantly having to find my place in the book after switching between the two? Is there any solution you could suggest?

(apologies if this has been solved elsewhere - my search did not turn up anything)

I appreciate every bit of advice!

The Olive Tree Bible+ app version 5.3 works, but the latest from the play store crashes.
The old version can be found here: https://www.olivetree.com/m/platform_android_20.php

This caused me great frustration, but I finally found a working version! FYI this app works with the hardware forward/back buttons without modification. Link pop-ups work great.
Just got the NST today
