One of the first tasks to do when you get an Android Tablet PC is to install your favourite applications. This document highlights 3 ways how to install applications to your device with ease.
Google Play (formerly Android Market)
This is the preferred method of downloading and installing application unto your Android Tablet PC. Google Play is Google’s version of the iStore – users can buy and download applications, movies, songs, books, and other items. Users can also rent movies as well from Google Play. Note that free applications and games are available to download.
Google Play is also the source for application upgrades. When an application requires an upgrade, the Google play icon will appear on the top-left hand corner of the Android Tablet.
In order to use Google play, you must be connected to the Internet and you must have a Google mail account. Getting a Gmail account is free and you can get one right from the Google Play if you are installing it for the first time.
Although the Google Play is my preferred choice, there are other methods of installing applications. 2 alternatives are mentioned in this document.
