    just because both devices are android doesnt mean they can run the same apps, if it doesnt show up, then it can't run.

    does that device give you access to the market? or you could look into what is called "side-loading"

    there may be an app called market on your device, that would be how you get apps. Please also go to the Craig sub-forum here for more details on getting market apps.

    Sideloading is where you find the app files, on Android these are .apk files instead of .exe files, copy them to your tablet and then install them.

    Hi sweetchrie, welcome to the forum. I'm going to move your thread to the Craig Tablets section for you. Hopefully, the folks most familiar with that tablet will be able to help you. Good luck!

    Rooted Craig CMP738B with working Market
    For apps you can goto slideme.org and update the SlideMe app to 4.0. One thing about the stock CMP738b not alot of apps work with it. And the slideme market is full of 3rd party apps that look and work like crap.

    Another thing you can do is goto apktop.com and download the apk file stright to your tablet and install them. Youll still run into app that dont work.

    Even if you had the same android os on you phone theres still a big change that it would not work. But if you wanted to try you can save all your apps to your micro sd card in your phone then remove it and stick it into your tablet and use the apkinstaller on your tablet to install them.

    Main apps that dont work.
    Netflix
    Skype
    Angrybirds - it runs but its unplayable
    Any flash based games.
