I have found that it is easier and quicker to browse and/or search for Apps using my laptop so I put the following URL into a shortcut on my desktop.

https://accounts.google.com/ServiceLogin?service=googleplay&passive=1209600&continue=https://play.google.com/apps&followup=https://play.google.com/apps

After doing this I then went to the above URL and in the search box entered the word MOTORHOME and more that 20 pages of Apps related to motor homing appeared...WOW.

As a test I did download one called "Truck Stop Locater" and if you have your phone's GPS turned on it locates the truck stops closest to you and puts them on a map.  This could be helpful if we were on smaller roads among small towns and needed fuel. 

If you have never installed an App to your phone from your laptop it works great.  This is because you just click install and the next time you have your phone turned on with the "Background Data" enabled, as you always must do when using the Google Play Store, Google will automatically download that App to your phone.  If your phone is on with Backgrounf Data enabled it will install it immediately.

BTW, I like to browse for or search for Apps this way because of the large 17" laptop screen and the much larger keyboard.

If you look at any Google app, like Gmail, Calendar, News, Google+, etc., there is a menu bar at the top of the window.  Click on the Play item and you'll go directly to the Google Play Store.  Regardless of how you get there, once in the Play store you can have apps sent to any or all of your registered Android devices.  I use that feature a lot to send apps to both my Bionic phone and my Nexus 7 tablet.

What happens if you have two or more Google Android devices.. (I have two but only one is play store compatible, the other one uses Slide-Me, Get-Jar and Amazon however).

Went looking with my Win 8.1 box.. That will be very handy.. Thanks.

When you have two or more devices they should get loaded onto both devices by the Play Store. Personally I don't see the logic in using a 4 inch screen for these apps when I have a 14 inch laptop that is a lot more comfortable to use.
