    You say "it" can't be downloaded? Is it just one app or all downloads?

    Is there enough storage space on the tablet?

    Just one app, but the issue's now kinda resolved since I'm dropping the service it was needed for, heh. It was a gig app, but it turned out to be a bad deal.

    It's possible the app itself had an Android version requirement that was greater than 7. Glad you don't need it.

    That is true too, I hadn't considered that.

    Maybe the app was a scam so while it was still listed, it was deactivated? Apps that aren't compatible with a particular version of the OS are usually flagged as best as I recall.

    That is true! But the odd thing was I was able to download it onto an iPhone 6s we had lying aroudn for a job through them, and it worked. Maybe Google knew something I didn't.

    IME, if an app won't run on the device I'm using, most often, it doesn't show up. If it does show up, there is some kind of statement about OS version requirements. At least, that's how it used to be, before the most recent Play store update.
