Getting Apps onto a Tablet

  • This might be a stupid question, but I'm comfortable enough in my non-tech-geek-manhood to ask such a question anyway.

    I bought a cheap-o Coby tablet that runs Android. It comes with GetJar as the app installation service. I have used an iPad (taught a class on it, you may remember me asking about) and I have a smart phone. And near as I can tell, GetJar is the crappiest App service of those 3. The phone uses Google Play.

    So, do I have to use GetJar to get my apps for this device or can I go around it?

    Thanks.

  • Use the web browser, go to the android store or google play and see if there is a way to download directly from there.
    I know Amazon has apps for Android systems as well.
