Robert and Allison,

I'm wondering if the two of you might not share an example of an Android
App or two that you have tried using a Chromebook that can run Android
Apps.
I bought two  R-11 last year for Create Make Learn participants - but they
went to new homes (so I didn't get a chance to try them myself).  Thinking
I should rectify that by upgrading my Chromebook soon.

I think that we should keep an eye on upcoming promise to be able to use
Android Apps with Chromebooks and if those who are doing so already could
share their experience with some specific examples.. that would be super
awesome for those of us waiting and wondering.

Lucie
