new android apps only for specific phones?

by HzD incredible    Jul 4, 2011, 9:58 PM

Im just curious if anyone has a legit answer for why the new apps only release for specific device. I know that their are many different versions of android, but why would it not be across the board for all phones on a specific type of android. like when they came out with netflix for the incredible which runs 2.2 and the other on the list run 2.3, why would other phone that run 2.2 or 2.3 not be able to run netflix since linux is open source why would it not work across all the phones on the same android version. I also realize they are all alittle bit different but the software verison beig the same should work. why not?
