(yes, I figured out you meant "previous", I just had to.. teehee)

The only thing I can think of is said apps were installed before a Software Update on your precious.. I mean your previous phone, OR your new phone has a newer Software Version than your old one [you never updated].

What happens is an app developer says "hey, this app works on this version of software [and sometimes these specific devices]".  Sometimes things still work after a software update, sometimes they don't (if the app was installed on a previous software version and pulled forward).

First, I'd check to make sure you're up to date (Software version: LG Optimus L90), and if you are, talk to the app developer to figure out why it's not listed as compatible.
