    I'm not Austin, but it would work in the same way that you can look at google images on the simpletouch: just the same, except black and white. ((Btb, to get to google on a simpletouch, go to settings, social, link your account to google/twitter/facebook and then clik link to gmail. When the sign in screen appears, click privacy and terms or whatever at the very, very bottom of the screen. Now click the google logo tt should appear. Boom))
