I bought this as a present for my daughter as she loves my kindle, thinking this would be a good, cheap alternative. It is not. There are no parental controls and it is very slow. It took over 24 hours to download one application. I do not have the patience for this product. Because we had already downloaded something I was unable to return the item. I did not attempt to either, I'm not sure if I would have been given a refund or not.
