A Week With The Kurio: Day Six

Today in  A Week With the Kurio I will be covering three topics: the Kurio Store, Browsing and the Camera.

Kurio Store

Apps can be purchased through the Kurio Store. The Kurio Store is similar to the App Store in that you can search by categories such as Education, Games, Productivity etc or simply by the name of an app. There are also tabs where apps are grouped by Bestsellers, New, Recommended, All and Free.

To download an app you simply select it and click to purchase. If it is your first time using the Kurio Store you will need to set up an account and enter your card details. When you purchase an app you receive an email receipt within seconds. To add the app to your profile you need to do so through the Profile settings -> Applications -> Screen Layout and drag and drop it to the location you wish it to appear.

While the selection of apps on the Kurio Store and Google Play is not as extensive as the App Store there does seem to be a lot of great android apps out there with lots more being added every day.


To browse you simple click on the internet icon and if you have internet access available for your profile the browser loads, if it is not enabled you will be presented with an octopus on screen. To test it out I loaded both my site and the Magic Town site which were both responsive and easy to navigate about on, performing just as you would expect.

The camera allows you to take photos or video recordings and has front and back screens. With the camera there are a number of settings including Exposure, Zoom and White Balance while in the video you can also change the Time lapse interval settings. I like the camera interface and the way in which you use the wheel to scroll around and select the various options.

Camera mode: Select Exposure settings

Camera & Video mode: White Balance settings
Camera mode: Storage & Picture size settings

Video mode: Time lapse interval
I have yet to test the camera fully and have a play with the different settings but just to give you an idea here is a photo I took while watching the Olympics on TV earlier.

The Kurio Store, the browsing capabilities and Camera and Video functionality are all great features available on the Kurio which are easy and intuitive to use making it a great all round tablet.

*Disclaimer: I received a Kurio free of charge but this has in no way biased my opinion.

Are the apps expensive? They look great x

It comes preloaded with loads of apps which is great as you have a selection ready to play with out of the box. You can download additional ones through the Kurio store which vary in price just like other android apps. x

I am having difficulties. I tried to create an user account I got all the way down to zip code, I put it in, then I clicked on country but nothing came up plus it said correct highlighted area which was the zip code. I entered correct zip but nothing?

Also my kurio app wasn't currently installed and I need it installed, so what's up with that?
