Google has added a feature to the Android Market that lets developers specify which handsets their application will work with best. The tool should help prevent customers from downloading apps that aren't supported by their handsets.

Good, but nearly pointless

When Backup Assistant for LG Ally was released on the Android Market, people were STILL downloading it on Droid, Eris, Droid X, etc and actually complaining it didn't work.

Netflix also has a list of "supported" phones and people still comment how it doesn't work on their unsupported phone and bash them for the app.

It would make common sense that people wouldn"t dow load what is not supported, but clearly they don't pay attention.

This will be nice for the people that do though!
I was looking on the market for the list of available phones but did ont see it. Where would it be? I really would like to see this so I can see the list of phones compatible with the Netflix app.

This is a good idea. I get alot of Customers complain about an app not working on their device or there is an app on their device that causes the device to not work well. and when you try to explain why to them, they feel that if it can be downloaded to their devioce they should be able to use it.
