I am enjoying the tablet and find that it runs all the apps I use, including Facebook, Yahoo mail, Words with Friends, Draw Something, 7 Little Words, word search, internet browsing, Skype, Netflix, and Pandora internet radio. It is NOT compatible with the Google Play Store...but links to GetJar and 1 Mobile Market came pre-loaded. Some of the apps redirected to the Google Play Store anyway, which was disappointing. The internal memory is segmented into space for apps, photos, music, etc. I wish I could reallocate the music memory portion for photos or apps since I won't be downloading any music. Maybe another user would know how to do this, but I don't. So I purchased a micro SD card for additional app storage. The touch screen is not as sensitive as the one on my Android smartphone. The tablet screen requires a more firm touch. When using Draw Something, a stylus doesn't register the touch as well as using a fingertip. I've been using the tablet daily for 3 weeks and am satisfied with the quality of construction. I dropped it once on carpeting and it's still working. The front glass is easy to clean (tissue and glass cleaner). The back is shiny black plastic that looks awful after being handled, but give it the same treatment as the front glass and it cleans up nicely. The included hardcover case is sturdy and would protect the tablet well in a backpack or briefcase...but it doesn't fit in my small/medium handbag. So I crocheted a slipcover instead =) PROS: Compact size (same size as an eReader), ease of use, reasonable cost, game apps run well. The included hardcover case is actually nice! There are many attractive desktop images preloaded, or use a photo taken with the camera. The tablet streams Netflix movies perfectly! CONS: Must be patient if browsing the internet because pages do not load quickly. Game apps may lag while the tablet is downloading notifications or content in the background. This is a fantastic, small, portable, wi-fi internet device for under $100. I plan to take it on vacation so I can stay in touch with family and friends. As long as I can find public wi-fi in a hotel or restaurant, I'll be able to upload photos to my Facebook page or email them to family.
