Android Question

Tablet-only app not visible in Google Play

In the manifest for the tablet version of my app, I specify

<supports-screens
android:smallScreens="false"
android:normalScreens="false"
android:largeScreens="true"
android:xlargeScreens="true"
android:requiresSmallestWidthDp="600" />


I uploaded the app to Google Play. In Google Play Developer Console, 73 devices are shown as a supported device for my app. For example, Nexus 7 is supported. But when I search Google Play for my app from Nexus 7 (or any other tablet), the app is not found.

Answer

When I found your app in Google Play, and clicked on Permissions, it showed "Phone calls: directly call phone numbers". Does your manifest specify "requires phone"? Many tablets have no phone. You probably want your manifest to say

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