Am trying to follow the instructions to be able to sideload apps on my stock OS Nook Tablet.

They are:

"Step 1: Search crunchyroll.com. (All this is done on the Nook, not on PC). It is the first link, click on it
Step 2: Click on the picture/ link Get it on Google play
Step 3: You will be asked to set up or login with a google play account (gmail account). One you have done this and agreed to everything, you will be on the crunchyroll app page.
...."

Am a beginner and totally lost at Step2

Appreciate help to get to Google play!

Thanks

Our Android app will not work on the Nook with stock ROM. The Android version on it is too old.

What do you mean sideload? Which model of Nook do you have?

If you have the Nook HD, it's pretty much like they said. Sideloading would be entirely unnecessary, since it should have Google Play built in, but OTOH the Android 4.0 is one revision too old for their current Android app, and they decided not to go for a "Crunchyroll Classic" Android app for older versions of Android, so anything that old cannot load a modern Crunchyroll Android app.

If you have a Samsung Nook, it also ought to have Google Play built in, and it should have a version of Android recent enough to run the Crunchyroll app. Just go to the Google Play app store and search for Crunchyroll.

If you have a Nook older than the Nook HD, like a Nook Color, fuggedaboudit, go ahead and root it and upgrade to a CyanogenMod with a more recent version of Android. If it doesn't come with Google Play, then install 1mobile and get Crunchyroll there.
