    New Tablet - Looking for Apps Suggestions

    Fellow Fanatics, I picked out a new Tablet this week and am looking for suggestions for quality apps. It's the Toshiba Thrive 10.1" Android tablet. It's a family tablet so my wife, 11 y/o son, & 5 y/o daughter will all be using it. I would like to have some capability for create, review, & modify Word, Excel, Powerpoint, etc. documents. Here are some other functions we'd like:

    *Watch movies/shows online (Netflix App, ???)
    *Read books (Kindle App, ???) (Also where do you get your ebooks?)
    *Age appropriate games for son (Flick Golf, games, sports, etc.)
    *Age appropriate games for daughter (coloring app, word games, memory games)

    Anything else you've discovered that you can't believe you ever lived without

    Thanks

    I suggest returning it and getting the iPad 3 in a couple weeks. You bought Grandview when you could have had Iowa State.
