First, the good news: Your son, granddaughter or family friend went ahead and splurged to buy you a hot new gadget this holiday season, presumably offering some requisite speech about how your life is about to be changed forever thanks to the device’s indispensable convenience. Nodding your head and smiling, you’ve pledged to try it out, but alas, you don’t know Microsoft from a microchip, Apple from an application.

Once you’ve figured out how to use your device, you’ll want to soup it up with some downloadable apps (the hip vernacular for application, or program), many of which can be had for free at the gadgets’ various “app stores.” In most cases, your device will prominently feature an icon advertising apps, but you can also find some online guides here for tips.
