I cant able to find/install some apps on lumia 520

[ Edited ]

I reset my phone today because of some problem i was having. So after resetting when i wanted to reinstall my old apps like kik messenger  weather, top truck free etc but i cant because store is not listing any of the above apps on store.

 
I have used kik messenger on this phone before resetting.
 
I have also tired to install manually by putting kik-messenger.XAP in SD card but windows store gives an error unsupported app.
 
And when i try to install kik messenger from windowsphone.com it says "App is not available in this region" . Also when I goto purchase history on windowsphone.com and try to resintall from there same error message appears instead of reinstall link.
 
I have attached picture of error shown on windowsphone.com. Please do something, I need to fix all these things fast.

Not sure if the application has been removed (may be temporarily) due to some issues ..because the recent reviews on the MarketPlace (India) shows -ve comments.

Refer the attachment ..

 

Other than this, many applications may not be available now if the Developer has decided to remove them from the MarketPlace ..

Partial answer .. The 3-4 applications might have been removed over a period of time but you only know about it when you Reset the phone and want to re-install ithem ...

You could start by contacting the app developer for status regarding app availability.

Dickson325, did you try installing apps through windowsphone.com? On your pc, go to www.windowsphone.com, login with your microsoft account and click on install button to send the app to your phone. 
Also after logging into windowsphone.com, go to Settings->e-mail+accounts on your phone and re-enter your microsoft account password there.
