    Default Apps for my Grandma?

    So I game my mommom my 8gb nexus 7(I got the galaxy note 2 and have a laptop, she dosen't have much $ nor much of an internet connection so it's something).
    I set it up for her with a bunch of games, cut the rope, angry birds, billiards and a couple of others.

    She's gone nuts over angry birds! And she's told me she rushes to get housework done to play games with her tablet.

    I need to get her sketchbook mobile(I have the apk saved from when I bought it, again she dosen't have much $$$).

    Does anyone know of any great and free apps that don't need an internet connection after the initial donwload? She LOVES games like katamari, crash bandicoot, billiards and scrabble(words w/friends needs a consistent internet connection augh!). I play cut the rope, my little pony, and mass effect as well as a few others, but I don't know what else she will enjoy in terms of games for her. If you know of a game that's great but is paid, it needs to not need to check for purchase verification at every launch because I'd have to buy it with my account and copy her the APK because again, they don't have extra cash and I don't want to hook up MY card to her account in case she were to accidentally buy something that costs money.

    Also, any good free books you recommend? She's gotten into westerns as of late.

    i got my grandmother a toshiba thrive and all she plays is solitaire. she keeps asking me to find more games for her to play. I'm not sure what's out there for an old woman. I'd like some suggestions too!

    I don't know where you live, but you might want to check out the local library for ebooks. You may have to install the kindle app to do so.

    As far as games, my dh loves to play casino games on his iphone, and I'm pretty sure they are available in the Play store too. I am not sure what's available in free games as I don't play them much, but it might be worth a browse online at the Play store.

    I've got an app designed especially for Grandmas.It helps you look after your grandma. Grandma needs a tablet or a doingle (works fine on most dongles) works best on Nexus 7.

    What does it do. Mostly it shows a gallery of the pictures you send her. The android in her room ia always on and connected to the net. Yu can send her pictures from your handset (Show Grandma at tradersmicro in Google Play). If she does not hear very well, try Txt Grandma or Hard of Hearing from the www.Stay-in-Touch.ca (note .ca). You can Skype her. These functions do not require her to do anything, the pictures just come, the Hard of Hearing texts just arrive, the Movei and the Skype just starts. The aim here is that not all grandmas are computer-adept, so this is an easy way in. There is quite a good pills thing too Android-tele-Health.

    At the moment it is free, it will likely be $25 per year later. We are just rounding up the capital and the other expertise we need to go big. It works just fine, but it can be more beautiful and better explained/


    We were just at a Hackathon in Montreal...Hacking Health. Our project was to build a family support group to be sure she gets a phone call every day at least. ANd when she gets more infirm and cannot guarantee to reach the phone in 4 rings, Call-Grandma-Safe where the phone only rings if she is sitting doen in an instrumented chair. If he runs (the grandmas we are looking at here do not even walk well) she may fall, and that's bad, she can get put n a home or break a hip which is just as bad.
