How to download incompatible or restricted Android apps from Google Play

How to download incompatible or restricted Android apps from Google Play
Sometimes you find that Android app you've been longing for, but Google Play won't let you download it for whatever reason. Maybe it thinks your device is outdated, or you happen to be in the wrong country. Anyway, this isn't something you'd expect from Android, the land of the free, right? Nuh-uh! Of course there's a way to work around that if you happen to want a particular app so badly! At least three ways, in fact! 

All of the options proposed below are legal and don't require mingling with your device, rooting it, or downloading pirated stuff. So if you are in the situation described above, give these solutions a shake!

what if you find the app, you got the apk, even manage to install it and on startup is says "not compatible with this device" ;)
