    I have an Acer B1-730 Wifi tablet. It uses Android. I can browse using chrome, download apps from them playstore, but when im try to sign up or sign in for example to twitter while using the twitter app it does not work. the same applies with the skype app. i downloaded it from the app store but all it does is load and says i am not connected. Chrome works just fine. but i want my apps to work. what i can do to get them to work.

    Welcome to Android Central! Is this only on your home wi-fi network, or on any network?

    Hey man.. am the one that posted the question.. I just signed up today. I haven't tried it with other networks. the one I use is the only network we have. its like a work base where we live. so we use the wifi after work at night. I downloaded the twitter app, instagram and Skype. they are all not working. I've been downloading music with chrome. it works just fine. the problem are the apps. help me man!!

    What do you mean by a work base? If this is a workplace wi-fi network that is not under your control (i.e., it isn't one you've set up), then it's possible that the network administrator has set up some kind of firewall for various social media servers. This wouldn't be unusual for a work wi-fi network. Try it on a public open network, like at your local cafe.

    its a camp. we work and sleep there. its really far from town. my friends use the same wifi network to skype, download stuff, tweet and many other things. if its possible that this kind of firewall was set up how come i can access twitter while using chrome? the problem is the tab. or do u think i should root it?

    That's strange. So the Twitter and Skype apps are installed successfully, but when you open them, they just tell you they can't connect?

    Not sure if rooting would matter. Check to make sure the tablet's date and time are exactly correct--sometimes a minor discrepancy can mess things up when it comes to web access.
