One of the best ways to put expensive, high-tech gizmos, like your Samsung Galaxy tablet, to work is to play games. Don’t even sweat the thought that you have too much business or work or other important stuff you can do on your Galaxy Note or Galaxy Tab.

  • You can use the Play Games app on the Apps screen. (The Play Games app may be in the Google folder.)

  • Free or “lite” versions of popular games exist. Before plunking down your hard-earned 99 cents, consider testing the free version.
