    Talking Dad needs help..Please

    Hello,

    My name is Greg. We got a Coby MID7015A 1.6a 01/26/11 2.6.29 Root Android 2.1 for Christmas. I want to download some educational apps on if for my 2 sons but we dont have wi-fi. Is there anywhere I can down load apps to my home comp and then transfer them to the tablet. Any and all help would be great.

    Thanks,

    Greg

    Hi Greg and welcome to the forum

    Downloading to your computer is not generally something the legitimate app sites allow. I suggest you find a public WiFi hotspot that your could use. You also could use a friend's WiFi long enough to download what you need.

    It is possible to get a fairly inexpensive nano router that would convert your wired connection to a WiFi connection. Maybe $29-$39 US.

    Thanks Guys. I tried the wifi thing. My tablet has Appslib and it keeps saying its not compatable. Where can I find the Android Market or Google Play that is compatam\ble with my tablet. Also I keep hearing about rooting it to make it perform better. Is this necesary being this tablet will ne mostly used for educational reasons.

    Thanks,

    Greg

    Hi Greg, welcome. Please checkout the Coby Tablets section (that is a link). I am not familiar with your particular device but I believe it does not include access to the official Google Play Store. In that case you would need to root your device. There are other alternatives to the Google Play Store for apps which may not require root, including Amazon and those that can be found here http://www.androidtablets.net/forum/...-appstore.html. You will need to access some sort of app store for educational apps.

    Best to ask that question in the threads you are considering following. Somebody should be able to give you some guidance specifically related to those discussions. My best advice is to read and read and read about rooting for your device. Then when you think you understand it, ask about anything you still aren't sure about. After doing that you will have a very high likely hood of having an easy rooting experience.

    Watch out for tinkeritus though. Rooting, ROMing and otherwise playing with the guts of Android can be addicting
