Why does my Windows 8 phone (Nokia Lumia) almost always gives me an error message on downloads? It says the software is not compatible with my phone even when I'm getting the software from the Windows Store.

You receive the error because the application was not developed to be compatible with your phone. It's a rare case, but it happens from time to time where high end phones don't have compatibility with newly released applications. There is nothing to be done in this case except waiting. However, try to connect the phone to the PC through the PC Suite and make sure the phone's firmware is updated to latest version. Recently, Microsoft released a new version for Windows Phone. Update the phone then try to install the application.
