trouble with trio

by thakaliboy / September 20, 2013 6:05 AM PDT

I have a Trio android tablet. I purchased it so I could listen to audio books. I did not intend to use it to access the net. But I wouldn't mind being able to use it to read MS Word documents. So I have been trying to find a word processor application for the thing. After several attempts I have managed to download Kingsoft. The download shows up when I connect the tablet to my PC through the USB port, but it is nowhere to be seen in the tablet itself when not connected to the PC. And even when connected to the PC there is no exe file of any kind to actually boot up the word processor. So before I take a hammer to this thing, can anyone suggest what I may be doing wrong?

Since this is Android

My first look at Kingsoft finds a Windows app. Maybe you need to step back and re-consider if an Android tablet is for you. That is, you are applying Windows apps and thinking to Android and I can see where the hammers would be used.

If you want a Windows tablet, get that Windows 8 Pro tablet.

I have the same tablet, and the Kingsoft app for android, if you download an app while connected to the computer make sure you are installing it to the tablet. Check your computer and tablets download folder to see where kingsoft is. I found the best way to download an app on computer is to download the .apk files to computer and then move or copy them to a micro sd card in a card reader not the tablet. You can also go to the tablet manufacturers site while the tablet is connect to internet and get the same app from there.

Hope this helps!
