    Exclamation Not available on Android 4.4/LG L40

    Hi,

    As you do not provide the Ambilight TV, Ambilight+Hue or Hue app for Windows Phone, I purchased a low-end Android 4.4 device (LG L40) to use as my "Philips remote" to control my 55PFL8008 and Hue bulbs (and some other devices in my home cinema setup).

    Ambilight+Hue and Hue apps work like a charm.

    Sadly the Ambilight TV app is not available, can't install it from Google Play store.
    Message "your device is not compatible"

    I wonder what are the requirements for this app?
    Description states only Android 2.3 or later.

    The LG L40 runs Android 4.4 - so requirements are fulfilled.

    With the World Cup just around the corner, would be a real shame to miss out on this app

    Any chance to get the app compatible?

    Would be happy to assist as Beta tester, if required.
    Got some tech background and would be willing to provide feedback and report possible bugs/problems anytime.

    Cheers

    Thanks Toengel!

    Yes, screen resolution is of course another possibly limiting factor.
    I was a bit focused on 4.4

    Anyway neither of those are stated in the app description.

    Thanks for the APK, will give it a shot later today

    Update: works like a charm! All ui elements visible, fast, responsive (much faster than on a friends galaxy s2). Suggestion to Philips: review app store availability/device restrictions.
