Hello and good evening to you all. I got a problem and Ive need urgent help please. I purchased an android tablet from amazon uk a few weeks ago, its the popular Natpc, link is here: http://www.amazon.co.uk/NATPC-ULTIMATE-Capacitive-Android-tablet/dp/B007V5XL94/ref=sr11?ie=UTF8&qid=1339968833&sr=8-1

I did a factory reset, as i'm seloing this to a work colleague tomorrow, and now ive lost facebook, and youtube, and they do NOT seem to be downloadable on the google play store, so how can i re-install them please. Tablet has full ice cream sandwich latest version, and these apps were pre installed. Any suggestions please, as the person i'm selling this to needs facebook and youtube on it.

You can access the web based version of the Goggle Play Store by opening a browser window on Google co uk and clicking on Play just below the address bar (on android you will be asked if you want to open it with the browser or with Play Store keep saying yes to the Browser) if you scroll down the page you will see on the left "Facebook for Android" selecting this will get you to an "Install" button when you try to install it may well tell you that your system is set to allow only apps from Play Store ? if so then goto Settings then Security and temporarily enable "Unknown Sources" will get rid of this requirement

You can repeat this process for your other apps

Cheers HC

Facebook for Android appears in my Google Play Store as does Youtube. Have you looked under settings, applications and see if they are listed? It could be that the link is missing.
