    Hi - would appreciate any suggestions. I have a droid phone & a small tablet which have the full range of apps, but my main tablet will only display free apps - and quite a limited range at that, is there some setting you can change, or....??

    I have searched & searched through the tablet for a setting to adjust, but to no avail. I have also set up a google mail account linked to the tablet.

    Any ideas anyone?
    :confused:

    I don't have my tablet infront of me but under settings-application there is an entry about accepting applications it needs to be on.

    Yeah it sounds like you might need to instal google market. Or are you saying you got it and its not working?

    To be clear, some devices are not certified for google market and dont get full access. This was the case with my WITSA81E. I had to perform a little work around to gain access to the full market.

    The tab I'm using is 10.2" Flytouch 3 SUPERPAD 2, ANDROID 2.2 16GB TABLET PC

    Market is installed because I can get the free apps, albeit not much of a selection

    settings-software-apps seems to be ok

    if this is the case, how do you get access?

    do you have to root the tablet?

    I did not have to root my WITS, just go into manage apps and clear.some cache, delete some data and force stop something, and it worked. You can search Youtube for the procedure for the WITS, but it might not work on our device.
