UPDATED - Backing Up with Google Drive!

If you have apps on another Android device (Android 2.3 or lower) that you've purchased from Google Play, you can easily back them up and enjoy them now.  This method makes use of the Cloud rather than a Micro SD Card for transferring the apks between your Android device with Google Play Store and the nabi 2 Tablet.  If you have an Android device that uses Android 3.2 or higher, then the AirDroid method should work for you.

NOTE: If you purchased and/or installed apps through the nabi App Zone or Amazon Appstore, reinstall them on the nabi 2 Tablet through these markets.  This will ensure that if the developer releases an update with enhancements or fixes, that you can take advantage and quickly update your existing apps.
