Grocery IQ, My Movies, Grocery King, and CamScanner are all available on my Galaxy S WiFi 5.0
K-Love and MyHumana Mobile are not compatible.

Grocery IQ (so missing this one)
My movies
K-Love
MyHumana Mobile

Some I never got working on A43 or never tried
Grocery King
CamScanner

All of these come us as incompatible with my device.
I have not tried any of these apps, but hopefully I can get to it tonight. But I will say that the apps I could not get to work on my A70S appear now (although I have not dug into this extensively.)

I bought the 5" one and returned it, just not that different from my galaxy phone, although I would love to have a phone with that screen size. I still have a 5IT that I use mainly for music and gps. This player also wouldn't scan credit cards with the Square app, which is strange because my phone does.

Thanks for the update on what works. I find it very frustrating when apps "aren't compatible" when there isn't any good apparent reason for them not to be.

Nice Players.

The 5 is larger and uses, I believe a VA-type panel. Longer battery life and a bit stronger sound as compared to the 4.
The 4 is smaller and has an excellent Super Clear IPS panel (better than the 5).
