Some good apps on Android Market

I got my daughter a Samsung Tablet for Xmas and have been pleasantly surprised by the quality of some of the free apps.

Have only upgraded one, a "Kids Shape Puzzle" which she really likes, to the paid for version.

Upgrading to the prenium app proved rather more difficult than expected but I received excellent e-mail support from the folks at Intellijoy. Far better support for this sub £2 app than I would have expected.

If so perhaps we'll have lots of tea related elements in the new language,

for example bags instead of beans.
