Free Mahjongg

I recently got a Kobo Vox and am looking for free Mahjongg games. I haven't been able to track any down in the past couple of days. Any ideas?

Android Market isn't on the Vox, only GetJar.

CalgaryGal - The problem is likely you're searching for 'mahjongg' rather than 'mahjong'. Too lazy to check through them all to see which are proper mahjong and which are the pattern-matching game (three of those on the first page of results for 'Shanghai', by the way), though I'm betting most are the latter, or to try and get GetJar's web interface to limit itself to the Vox (won't let me select, for some reason :/).

Can one install apk directly on the Vox? Many Apps from the market linger around somewhere on the web if you specify the search "Shanghai Mahjonng .apk" or the like... I have an Android Tablet that comes w/out the market, too, but it can be installed easily afterwards... Are there similar "hacks" for the Vox?

Who would have thought that it was all so simple as to drop a "g". Thank you all for your assistance!

The Vox is open. As long as you have the install the 'untrusted' apps option in the settings turned on, which you have to do in order to download from GetJar, anyways (or so I hear), you can install from anywhere - directly from an APK or from any store you manage to install that will let you download.

No problem. It's a common mistake.
