    Have figured out most of the shortcuts and still trying to figure out itunes
    But where in the app store will I find games? I had the blackberry play book and had some nice ones on there, monopoly, UNO, and my husband had some car racing games
    I am also glad I found out how to make folders

    Certain countries have no game category. Certain developers navigate this obstacle by classifying their games in the entertainment category.

    South Africa iTunes excludes the games category.

    Check the entertainment category.

    I do not advocate circumventing this exclusion of games but I would say that if you just happened to have an iTunes gift card purchased in a country with games access you could create a secondary account with that itunes gift card that would access the associated iTunes storefront with the games category....I mean in theory and all....

    I left BB for android a few years ago. Unless things have dramatically changed the games selection, actually the entire app store selections, were very limited.

    Sorry that restrictions controlled by parties other than Apple and the iOS game developers prohibit you from accessing the games category.

    I would suggest using your playbook to send a letter expressing your frustrations to those responsible for the restriction.

    Best of luck to you on either/both platforms.
