Because the existing link cannot be read unless you have a Google Play account.
And after my old phone broke I couldn't remember my password, so I was unable to check the specifications.

And does anyone know if it usable on a Moto E phone with a 4.3in screen?

Here is the official HP link which includes Android info: http://www8.hp.com/us/en/campaigns/prime...a5cqf1p9xi

In so far as being usable on a 4.3 screen, that depends on the individual. I find my 5 inch Droid Ultra screen at the limit of usability, and my Nexus 7 to be easy to use. You can download the app, try it and if you don't like it uninstall in within 2 hrs for a refund.

I finally decided to try it.

As several people had said it wasn't compatible with their devices and my moto screen was 4.3 in rather than the recommended 5 in, I wasn't sure it would download. It did, without any warning about my screen size. But there was a warning suggesting the refund option was unavailable (sorry, I didn't save the exact wording).

First impressions: bearing in mind my small screen, I am surprised how well it works. The buttons are large enough and well separated for general use (though I can't hold alpha and shift together at the same time). Yes it is a bit of guesswork as to why whether you type V or Y, and menu selection is a bit hit and miss, but easily corrected. And all 3 fonts on the screen would be nice if they were bigger. I wouldn't want to be doing accurate positioning and drawing in a CAD application on such a small screen. But first impressions given my small Android screen: better than expected. Looking to the longer term I am sure the app will be fun to use. I have yet to try file backup/transfer. If someone asked me what screen size,to get, I'd stick with the recommended 5 in, but if 4.3 in is what you have, don't let that stop you. (And don't forget Android has accessibility options for magnifying the screen if you need to)
