    Hi everyone,

    My daughter received a Nextbook Premium 8 for Christmas and has been having trouble loading apps. I have enabled the tablet to install 3rd party apps in the device settings and also followed the instructions at Gunner's Barn for installing the Android Market (How to install Android Market to Nextbook Premium 7 | Gunners's Barn) but she still gets an error when downloading from SlideMe and the Android Market.

    Oddly enough, she can visit the Android Market on our PC, choose an app, and download directly to her tablet that way but any time she tries via the tablet directly she gets an error message.

    Now, I notice that the device settings screen does NOT have the same "Sync and Accounts" entry that my Android phone has...could it be that the Nextbook simply isn't storing her Android Market account information and; therefore, can't pass it along to complete the transaction?

    Any help would be much appreciated!

    Sounds like that is the problem. The credentials have to be the right ones, the same ones that work on the pc.

    Credentials are definitely the same...but I don't know if, how, or where the Nextbook stores any such account info. Good to know I can get the apps from the web site and I suppose I can always just use the tablet's browser to access the web sites but it would be nice to just use the apps to connect and download directly.
