									Android Tablet Application Guide
At GadgetFreakz we want to make sure you get the most from your chosen tablet and
where better to start than installing some of the best applications and games!

To help you get started with your new android tablet experience we would like to
recommend some of our favourite apps and a few websites which will give you access to a
wide range of fun and useful freeware applications.

The Android Market should be the first place to start and will be already pre-installed on
your android device purchased from

Android Market is an online software store developed by Google for Android devices. An application
program ("app") called "Market" is preinstalled on most Android devices and allows users to browse
and download apps published by third-party developers, hosted on Android Market.

Currently there are over 200,000 applications accessible via the Android Market.

Slide ME is a website dedicated to Android applications where you may find news, reviews and even
a forum to discuss anything app related whether you need help or advice.

Slide ME is not just a website… it is also very much like the Android Market, an application installed
to an android device that allows direct downloads of applications and games.

To get the Slide ME application up and running on your tablet simply go to: and download SAM (SlideME Application Manager) directly to your Android
device. Follow the instructions on screen to install the application.

Once Slide ME is installed you can immediately start downloading many more new apps!
Android Pit offers very much the same as Slide ME, a great website for news and reviews, a forum
and an application known as Android Pit App Center.

To get the Android Pit App Center application, simply go to: and download the
App Center application directly to your Android Tablet. Follow the instructions on screen to install
the application.

Once App Center is installed you can immediately start downloading many more new apps! is a website which offers downloads to a variety of great apps and games.

Applications can be downloaded directly to a computer and then either copied to a MicroSD Card or
copied over to the tablet directly via USB. Once done the downloaded application can be installed
via an app manager or file explorer from the tablet.


Please Note: GadgetFreakz cannot accept any responsibility for any issues arising from downloading
third party applications to your tablet pc.

After sales support and advice is always available if or when such problems may occur!

Android application files (APK) Explained

Every operating system has an application file type; the Android file type is an APK.

APK files are easily accessible from the internet and can just as easily be installed to your
android tablet directly via a MicroSD card.

The easiest way to install an APK file from a MicroSD card is to use a file explorer (usually
pre-installed, depending on tablet device) simply browse for the desired APK file, double tap
and follow the on screen installation instructions.

There are various applications that manage APK files where you can install or uninstall
applications; alternatively if you only require uninstalling an application this can be done
from the tablet’s settings menu: Settings / Application Settings / Manage Applications

Please Note: Not all games and applications will be compatible with all tablets as primarily
the android operating system was developed for mobile phones. Additionally there are
various Android OS Platforms; therefore some applications may not be fully functional or
functional at all on certain tablets.

The latest Platform is currently 2.2 (Froyo) and we are soon to see the new Android 2.3
(Gingerbread) Platform!
