September 2016

Google Play Store is the online virtual store for all Android apps, games, music, movies, TV, books, and magazines. With over one million free and paid apps in its library, the Google Play Store is the ultimate source for mobile applications. Its easy-to-use interface (which comes pre-installed with most Android devices) allows users to browse, download, and install any application onto their devices.

How To Download from the Google Play Store

From the Home screen (the center button) of your smartphone, click on the Play Store application. If this is the first time you are accessing the store, you will be asked to create a Google Account.

You will then be redirected to the Android interface. Applications are grouped into six main categories: Apps, Movies & TV, Music, Books, Newsstand and Entertainment. To find an application by name, press the little magnifying glass and enter the name of the application. You can also browse popular applications by Category, Popularity, or Cost.

To download an application, simply tap on the app and follow the installation process. Once installed, the application icon will appear on the home screen of your mobile device.

N.B. The Google Play Store keeps a running list of all applications downloaded to your device. You can find this list under the Download tab in the application.
