Alright...    first thing - do you have wifi at home?  If you do, you'll get a lot more out of the tablet.
If you don't, then go to a library or somewhere where there's free wifi.
McDonalds or Burger King.
Of course, I wouldn't know that, cause I'm so skinny & healthy.
:lol:


To get the wifi going, tap the middle button near the bottom of the tablet (the one with the squares inside the circle)

The arrow button on the left takes you back to the previous screen.  The middle round button takes you back to the main screen.   The one on the right brings up the last few programs you've used.


These screenshots may look a bit different, since I have the latest version of the Android operating system


Image

Tap the button with the squares.
That will display every application that's on your tablet.
If you want to put a shortcut on the desktop, just tap & hold an app & drag it onto the main screen.

But for now, scroll through & find the Settings button.

Image

Find the Wifi bit (probably at the top & slide it along to On.
Then let it find the wifi connection.

To download apps & games, you use the Google Play app.  Drag that one to your main screen for easy access.

You need a Google account to download anything from Google Play (the Android version of the iPad App Store)
Sign up for a Google account & enter your new Google email address & password into Google Play when prompted.
(don't worry...   you'll never ever use that Google account again.  It's just so you can get in)

Now go seaching for (preferably free) apps & games.




Essential  -  and FREE -  stuff to get first:


Clean Master

Image


Clears temp files & cools down your tablet after frantic gaming.
Use it often.


MX PLayer

Image

Best video player, but sometimes needs new codecs.
If a video won't play, use


VLC

Image


Offline Browser

Image


Download web pages to read offline when there's no wifi


File Manager

Image

Like Windows Explorer, so you can see what files you've got


Kindle

Image

For reading ebooks


Catapult King

Image


Best. Game. Ever.

Yep.  You can do it that way if you can't get on wifi.

I'll just email the apk (and a couple of others - with instructions and screenshots) to you when I finish work.


ok...  you have mail.     Ignore my shit spelling.  I'm tired.
