My app is not available for tablet device on Google play

I published my app 2 days ago on Google Play. For some reasons i can only see it in my phone’s Google Play. If i search it on my Samsung Galaxy Tab, it does not appear.

In manifest.xml i didnt wrote anything like:

 android:largeScreens="false" 

in addition, this tag is set “true” by default, as far as i know.

Can anybody tell me something about this issue?

On Web browser’s Google play i see this info:

This app is compatible with some of your devices.

-Samsung GT-P7500 This item is not compatible with your device.

-Vodafone Samsung GT-I9000

-HTC HTC Sensation Z710e

= = = E D I T = = This is my manifest just as you asked:

I use phone calls and telephony manager too.. could this be the problem? I must make an other version only for tabs or what ?

Maybe android:largeScreens="false" this is default ?

Answer

The value is true if the “android:largeScreens” not declare in manifest. Do you use any other features? For example, making a phone call.

<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.CALL_PHONE"></uses-permission>
<uses-feature android:name="android.hardware.telephony" android:required="false"></uses-feature>

You may add this pair of statement to your manifest, it do not force the device support telephony. However, you may need to check whether the user can use that “calling” function in your activity, if they are using a device that do not support.
