Notepad help

I am tech savy, but have never looked into notepads so I am clueless. I want to get my kids one and the bfs kids one. So thats 5 kids. I am looking at the ones in the Walmart ad. I can't post links because I am still too new. I am looking at HKC 7" Capacitive Touchscreen Tablet Featuring Google Mobile Services and Android 4.0 with 8GB Memory (Assorted Colors). I liked the idea of that one because I can get each kid a different color.

I know NOTHING! Do you have to pay for data plans on these? I don't want to do that. We have wifi at my house and their dads so no need. I want them to be able to download apps, play games, watch movies like from netflix or hulu and read books. Any advice? Is this one ok? Or is there a better one that I should look at? Thanks!!

I'm heading out the door, but I'd be happy to give my input. Are you buying 5 total or 1 for each set if kids? Also are there any specific apps or thing you want it to do in particular?

Looking at it now, it looks good, don't see you can add storage so you'll only have 8gig memory.
No data plan needed

I'm afraid it almost looks too good for the price. Try way it says and is worded it compares to a tablet that runs much more expensive. Try it and if you don't like it return.

Re: Notepad help

I am buying 5. If these turn out to be ok to buy. If not we will be rethinking what gifts to get them. LOL

I have no specific apps. I just want the kids to be able to play games, like minecraft & temple run or whatever else the dl on mine & their dad's phones. And also Netflix and read books. Other than that, idk, bc idk anything else that the tablets are suppose to be used for?

This one?

The resolution seems a bit low so things might not look the greatest but if it is for kids they will probably be thrilled.

Re: Notepad help

Yes that is the one. Thanks for all the help ladies.

Does anyone else know of any others that are better around that price? Or do you think for the price that is the best I am going to find?

These getting into google play is a big thing. Google play is the main App Store, may other have there own App Store and can get a lot of apps. So inless you are going to mess around with the operating system and root it i think these are probably one of the best you are going to get. My 2 cents
