    unless the device was shipped with the google experience then you won't be able to download apps via the market, not yet at least.

    ViewQuest Slate
    Hi all, I've just bought a ViewQuest Slate 8" Tablet. I'm struggling to see what the point of having it, is when I specifically chose an android and cannot seem to download apps from android market. I also bought it because it has Aldiko e reader installed. I have tried to download the free kindle for android app from androidzoom and other apps and keep getting the message "You do not have permission to open this page.market:// search?q=pname%3Acin.[name of app]. Why do I have an Apps installer? Any help on this would be much appreciated!

    If you go on the web and go to slideme.org you can download an app called Sam 4.0, it's not great but you can view a load of free and paid apps.

    Viewquest Slate8
    Hi
    I've also ended up with a Viewquest Slate (Slate8). It's not very good, but I can't give it back as it was a gift. Anyhow, as mentioned, SlideMe lets you download a useful program for downloading and installing Apps. I've also found APKtor and AndAppStore let you download apps that might not appear on the SAM collection. You can download both clients directly onto your Slate.

    You'll soon find there aren't too many good Android 1.5 apps around that also make use of the full Slate screen, so hopefully this list of (free) apps that do use the full screen and appear to work reasonably well will save time for people who haven't managed to find anything useful to do with their Slate yet:-

    Opera Mini for Android
    Swift twitter client
    Solitaire game
    MyPod podcast manager
    Musical Pro virtual keyboard
    fBook facebook client
    Draw and Share drawing package
    aDOS MS DOS emulator (haven't done much with this yet)
    AVG antivirus

    Any of the players that try to access iPlayer content don't seem to work, sadly.

    Anyone got any more suggestions for apps that seem to work well on this piece of c**p? or even better, (obviously) if anyone can suggest a way of upgrading the version of Android to 2.x or some better custom firmware I'd be thoroughly grateful :-)

    Thanks for the response, I have tried to download SAM 4.0 and it appears as an icon, however when selected it just comes up with "Sorry" " The application SlideME Marketplace (process com.slideme.sam.manager) has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again (force close)
    I emailed Viewquest support and I quote.......
    Thanks for getting in touch.

    Google restrict the use of Google Marketplace on tablets without 3G integrated. As a result, we are not allowed to pre-install it.

    However, we have developed our own app store, specifically designed for use on our tablet products, and including popular apps such as FaceBook and Twitter. This will be available to download from Welcome to View Quest, hopefully by Friday. (This was Friday 7th Jan and still not available!!!)

    Hi

    That's interesting. SlideME (SAM 4.0) works perfectly fine on my Slate. Maybe they changed the software on the device ... Here's the info from my "Settings" "About PND":

    Model SLATE8
    Firmware 1.5
    kernel version 2.6.25 spreadwin version 2.1.8 (AOB_jbs)
    Build number RK-1.3.2.eng.testteam.20101025.134330

    Have you tried AndAppStore Client v1.6.8 - that also works fine. APKtor v 1.0.8.7 is also working well, although you do have to do a little bit of setup to get it working.

    I recall installing a version of an App Store (I can't remember what it was, but it left a file VENDOR.APK and I think a similar App name in the Apps list) that caused the same errors that you describe, even when using SAM, but once it was removed that problem stopped.

    Still gotta say though - what a heap of junk :-) I'm just hoping some brightspark also got one for xmas and has been hacking together a decent firmware.

    Ian

    UPDATE: I just had a look at the View Quest site and I notice they're also suggesting you download AndAppStore. They say:

    "How do I easily install apps onto my Slate device? "As you may know, Google restrict pre-installation of Google Marketplace on units without full phone functionality. Due to regrettable delays in releasing our own app store we have provided the following link to an existing app store to provide an easy way for you to start downloading apps - http://andappstore.com/AndroidApplications/apps/AndAppStore_Client

    Hi
    I've compiled a list of all the apps that seem to work on my Slate8, see

    Android 1.5 Tablet Apps

    I'll try to update it from time to time, and I'll add version details and direct links to download sites, where available, when I get time :-) Hope it's useful, any suggestions for additions will be welcome.

    Ian
