I'm sure you've had this problem you find a nice Android app on some blog page only to find it's not available via the Market because Google in their ultimate wisdom block all that is considered incompatible.
I'm sorry but that's utter crap if there was a compatibility issue with my device then it's my decision to take this into consideration before installing not Google's.

Is there any viable workaround to this problem that doesn't involve downloading from unofficial sources??

I just end up looking up APKs on the net and installing them... guess what, the app works like a charm. Thanks to this stupid compatibility check I am now a pirate.
