Cannot run Geooh app on my Android phone?

The Geooh app page states "This app is incompatible with your device." I have a Zenfone4 running Android 8.0. About my device is attached.

Can I really not run Geooh on my Android device?

I'm in Taiwan. Is the app not available outside of the US?

It's available outside US, but Taiwan wasn't enabled for downloads. Google Play has been adjusted to allow Taiwan access. Please give Google a couple hours to implement the change. Keep in mind that language translations are limited which is one reason for the exclusion.

I just downloaded it and it looks awesome. Can't wait to try it out later today. I will tell my geocaching friends here in Taiwan about it.

Hello. I have the same problem. I want to test Geooh, but I can't as it is not available for my phone - HTC U11 Life with Android 9.
I'm from Czech Republic.

It hasn't been abled for your country because there has been no manual language translations. If you are ok with Google Translate then I could enable the downloads.

Well,
for me is English enough. But I saw a lot programs with machine translated description. And now I know why. So should be not a problem. I think.

Thanks.

It's been enabled for Czech downloads. In the past, there have been several negative reviews from Eastern Europeans due to how Google Translate isn't good enough. If that starts up again, I'll have to disable the downloads until I can get better translations.

Give Google a day or so to enable the download after my change.

I've downloaded and testing now. I can't found where I could enter folder with my mapsforge offline maps. Is this an extra payed function?

The enhanced version of Geooh via subscription allows for alternative maps such as Mapsforge maps. Open the left side drawer from the home screen and select Enhanced.
