    how to run apps that are "not compatible"?

    There are a couple of apps that are not compatible (per the Play store) but I suspect its just a testing issue. How can I fool an app into thinking my HD+ is another device, say a Transformer? Can I do it without rooting? Do I need to root to do it? Thanks

    I can't seem to find information on this anywhere. Is there an app that allows users to view their existing magazine subscriptions on an Android tablet (in this case, the Nook HD+)?

    Is anyone using a Launcher?

    I'm thinking I want a more traditional Android home page, so I will likely use Apex launcher. I looked at Nova and Go Launcher HD and, at least for the moment, seem to prefer Apex on my Nook. I'm wondering if anyone else is using a launcher and, if so, which one and why?
