Downloading a Free App

If you decide to download a free app, tap the Install button (refer to Figure 7.5). Some apps immediately begin downloading, but others might provide an alert like the one in Figure 7.7.

Figure 7.7 Read all app alerts before continuing with a download.

As you can see in Figure 7.7, the Skype app accesses a mix of information stored on my Galaxy Tab, including my contact database, the memory card, my network connection, and more.

If you're okay with an app's alerts, tap the OK button to continue the install. Otherwise, tap the Cancel button to return to the previous screen. Figure 7.8 shows that the application is now being downloaded and installed.

When the download and install is complete, you can check the Notifications screen (see Lesson 2, "Configuration and Notifications") to see a list of alerts as shown in Figure 7.9. (I downloaded the Star Traders RPG game, as well.)

To access the newly downloaded app, open up the Applications group and browse the apps. Figure 7.10 shows my two new apps, Skype and Star Traders, ready to use.
