Good free Android Markets
About a month ago I bought a Visual Land Android tablet.
While the device runs excellent, it did not come with "Google Play" the Google Android market.
The Android markets that came with it seldom wanted to work, or didn't have the software I was looking for.
I found these 2 while trying to get software I needed for my tab.
The first came as a extra gift. I installed Opera Mini, and along with mini came the Opera Mobile App Store.
Not a giant selection but a decent one, and I have never had a problem getting an app to install from it.
Then I found the mother lode. Aptoide.com.
Aptoide takes a little getting used to. Here is how you use Aptiode:
1 You install the Aptoide Android market app.
2 You Search for what you are looking for on Aptoide.com, not the Aptoide market app.
3 You add the store that offers the software you want to install. (By clicking install on the appropriate Aptoide.com app page)
4 You choose install when Android asks if it is OK to install this software.
If you just use the Aptoide app, you will only get a small portion of the apps available to you via Aptoide.
If you are interested in the Opera Mobile App Store, then click here:

I think that these Android markets will make it so much easier to get what you need on your Android tablet.
