    I just got a visual land tablet but I can't figure out how to get new free apps. I try to dowmload them but it says network connection error. I think I need googleplay but my tablet didn't come with that and I can't figure out how to download it. Is this what will fix my problem? What should I do?

    Tablets need to be "certified", so to say, by Google before they can use the play store. This is why some off brand tablets try to stay with their own marketplaces for some apps. Some even use the Amazon app store.

    You may have to root the tablet and sideload the .apk (installer file) for the play store to get it.

    Give that a go. I bought a dirt cheap tablet and that method worked fine
