Got some yara points to spend and need to get a couple tablets for the farm.
I was thinking just a standard Amazon fire, cheap and the kids ones seem okay. Cheap to replace if break.
Just need it to pair with a phone 4g signal and run Greenlight grower for application records on the web browser and excel/Dropbox which I think are both available on it?
iPads are lovely but I think it’s overkill for this situation.
Any thoughts?

I got a couple of Amazon Fire tablets for the kids and whilst they started fine, they quickly slowed down.
They don’t have much memory either.
Also, you can’t use the Google Play store, it has to go through the Amazon App Store which is limited and I doubt Greenlight will be on there

We have a couple of Samsung tablets. They were about £130 at the time.

I’m pretty sure they have paid for themselves in paper and ink savings alone, before you even start on the time and hassle of entering paper records into the computer.
