I've recently got a new tablet (Lenovo TB3-850F) running Android 6.0 and I cannot install SOD.

I've tried through play store where I'm told "not compatible with device". I've also tried downloading .apk file via PC and copying it over to the tablet Download folder. Enable unknown sources, select using Astro and I get "No applications found for this file type".

As an experiment, I borrowed an older tablet and tried the exact same .apk installation technique This worked perfectly which tells me that it's either the specific tablet or Android 6.0.

Can anyone help?

About me: I am a female dragon lover, music geek, bookworm and all round chocoholic. I am crazy about Httyd (books, franchise, movies, tv, you name it!) and Wings of Fire (WoF). I am a member in School of Dragons, but was a non-member for for a long time, so non-members, I sympathise.


In School of Dragons:


My character:

Name: Ingrid2712 (Ingrid)

Age: 15


Friend code:

Weapons: Is very adept at using a longbow and carries one she made (With a little help from her Razorwhip) on her at all times, along with a leather quiver full of arrows fledged with eagle feathers. She wears a shield on her back with her clan crest on it. She keeps a small, very sharp dagger strapped to her leg inside her boot. This dagger has a hilt that is carved into the shape of a sleeping dragon (a Razorwhip in fact) and was given to her by her parents.

Description: She has long, wavy black hair which she keeps tied in a side braid and very green eyes. She has pale skin and a scattering of freckles across her nose. Her face has soft features and her eyes are very large.She is on the tall side with long legs and a strong build. She is of average weight and is quite strong. She would be very pretty if she wasnt so shy and didn't look down all the time. She is left handed.

Attitude: She is quite shy and ashamed of her parentage, which makes her a quiet and withheld student. She is very smart and is a quick thinker, often thinking of ingenious and creative ways to deal with problems. She much prefers the quiet company of dragons to the racous ways of other vikings, and often finds it hard to talk in a straight snetance to another person without getting flustered. Hiccup and Fishlegs are some of the few people she can talk clearly with. Although she seems meek and timid, when faced with real danger her true personality shines through, and she proves herself to be a courageous, strongwilled young girl.

Story: Ingrids parents were members of the Beserker Tribe but left when Dagur became chief out of fear for what their ten year old daughter would grow up with. One night they boarded a small boat on the far side of the island an left all they knew behind. They headed out in the direction of Berk in the hope of finding friendlier lands. After a night of sasiling they were found by one of Stoics dragon hunting boats, on which, luckily, Stoic the Vast was on himself. He invited them to live on Berk and they accepted. They moved in next to Fishlegs house and the two families became firm friends. Her parents started up a Yak farm and did not take part in the battles with dragons. Ingrid always felt apart from the other viking childern because of her parents being former Beserkers, and she was often teased about it. When Hiccup tamed Toothless, she was secretly not horrified, but awed. SHe saw how Toothless protected Hiccup, and how he was really not vicious at all. She felt somehow drawn to him and, while all the adult and most of the children vikings were fighting the Red Death, she stole a boat and rowed by herself across to a nearby island, where she thought there might be some dragons. She was dissapointed when she found that there were no dragons there, as they had all been called away to the Red Death, but as se was leaving she stumbled on a disguised Nadder nest. As she watched in astonishment, the darkest of the three purple eggs that lay there cracked, and a small, shaky, closed eyed newborn Deadly Nadder wobbled out. It fell over, and lay omn the ground with its wings spread out. Frightened that something was wrong with it, Ingrid knelt down by it, and gently touched its head. A tremor went through it and slowly it raiused its head and opened its eyes, the first thing it saw being Ingrid. It struggled to its feet and walked unsteadily towards her, making strange soft clicking noises. To Ingrids delight it rubbed its head againts her affectionatley. Anxiously she looked over to the other two eggs, but neither of them showed any sign of hatching. Suddenly a noise caught her attention- the adult dragons were close. Sadly, she told the little Nadder to stay, that its mother was coming. But as she walked away, she saw it running ungainly after her. After several more failed attempts at getting the baby to stay, she gave up and carefuly picked it up and took it with her. On the way back to berk, she was very nearly swept away by a sudden and dangerous riptide. Upon reaching Berks safe shores she decided to call the dragonet after the thing that had nearly killed them. Riptide.


More coming later....

To my knowledge, the SoD app only works on PCs and iOSes, have you tried downloading it on any other device?

TDR is my first clan, it made me understand what a clan should be. And so my loyalty goes to them. In any game-wide clan competitions, I will fight alongside fellow Dragon Racers above all. Some of my alt. vikings are in other clans bc TDR does not have space for them and I'd like to meet new friends. (And btw, R.I.P. The Messengers)

dunno why everyone is getting so mad un-pushing the Triple Stryke, even harder than the impatient people

Well, humans are weird.

At least the pixels on my screen don't shout, 'YOU SHUT UP THIS MOMENT OR GET A GRAPPLE GROUNDER!'

I actually find SoD Grapple Grounders cute

Turned out really simple. I'd been trying to install the .apk file from file managers (File Commander and Astro). Instead I went to Settings - Storage and USB. Found the .apk file and it came up with the option to install. Why it didn't work any other way I don't know but it's now successfully installed and working well.
