    Smile android apps on thrive

    Hello All.
    I am so new to my Toshiba Thrive. My first question is:

    When I visit the Android shop. Do I have to look for an app for a tablet? and not a phone? or are they all the same?

    I was looking at an app for managing the SD card, so I can put my d/l apps on the card instead of internal. but when I read the reviews it seem everyone was talking about phones.

    Many Thanks for your time ♥

    If you can install it should work the market will not let you install apps that are not compatible. Although it will let you install some apps that kind of work or that crash. Its always good to test them before the 15 min refund window expires.

    Honeycomb (which is the Android OS on the THRiVE) does not support moving apps to the external SD Card. You will more than likely be able to install such apps to do this, but they will not work (if they follow the rules). In general the worse that will happen if the app is not optimized for tablets is that it will either not install/run, the app may not fill the screen (small like a phone), or will not support landscape mode.
