5.0 out of 5 stars Great at what it does., May 23, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Coby Kyros 7-Inch Android 4.0 4 GB 16:9 Resistive Touchscreen Internet Tablet, Black MID7033-4 (Personal Computers)
I work nights in a home health environment, so I have some free time while my clients sleep. I decided to get a tablet so I could access Facebook, Angry Birds, and Netflix, along with some other apps to help pass the slower hours. I am not trying to remote dock a space capsule to the space station, so I didn't need all of the bells and whistles from a $1,000 tablet. This tablet does everything I need. I can access the internet, play the games I want, and watch movies. I downloaded the Amazon Appstore which has more apps than Google Play, and it was so easy...it is hard to understand some of the reviews. They might have just not been aware of how to do it, which is fine...not everyone can do it.

My five stars is not a comparison to other, far more expensive tablets...that's not a review, it is a comparison. I am reviewing the tablet based on it performing the way it is supposed to for what it is. I can watch movies on Netflix with no lag. I can play Angry Birds and Bejeweled. I can surf the internet, and use Facebook and Twitter. The only feature that some resistive screen tablets have that this one doesn't is pinch to zoom. Some R screens have two touch sensitivity, but this one doesn't. I won't lower the score because almost every app allows for a zoom in/out button, so it isn't an inconvenience. This is a fun tablet and in a time where many people need to be more conscientious about what they are throwing money at, this is a great option.

I added the Amazon AppStore and Netflix is one of the apps you can get from there. It works great and the sound is good if you prop it up.

I purchased this device and cannot get the Amazon Appstore on the device to get netflix. Can you post a link to where you downloaded it from? I have tried direct download, freeware downloads, etc. Thank you for any help you can give.

Easily one of the best reviews around. Purchasing this for my 7 year old to play Angry Birds instead of using my phone. I'll be back to check on how to get to Amazon apps. Thanks!

I can't really remember. I think I downloaded it from the Amazon website, but I might have downloaded it on my laptop and emailed it to myself. Bruce will probably explain it more clearly.
