Question 10: Are Google and Apple Apps compatible?

  • Google and Apple Apps are not compatible with one another because they are designed for different platforms. In most cases, you can get different versions of the same App (one made for Apple and one made for Google).

To find out if a song is transferable:

  1. In your iTunes library, select a song.
  2. Right-click the track and select Get Info, then look in the Kind field.
    • If the description says “Purchased AAC audio file,” the audio file (with the extension .M4A) will work with your tablet.
    • If the description says “Protected AAC audio file,” the audio file (with the extension .M4P) is locked and will not work with your tablet.
