So many years have gone by and it appears that Google won't be doing another Nexus 7.  I'm wondering how many have replaced their machines with something else?

I don't use a tablet as often as I did four years ago.  I did recently buy an RCA Voyager 7" 16GB Tablet Android 6.0.  When I bought it, I figured it was money down the drain.

I was surprised at the value for the money.

By the way, I still use an old N7 for reading and another as a picture frame.

Coming next month according to the web rumor mill.  I for one can't wait.  If it goes for a decent price that is.

Nexus 7 General Discussion / Still Going Strong!
« on: July 15, 2015, 08:05:32 PM »
Just installed a new battery in my Nexus 7.  After three years, this is still my go to tablet.  Anyone else still using theirs on a daily basis?

Member Reported News / Nexus 7 Discontinued?
« on: April 30, 2015, 10:36:50 AM »
Many of the Android blogs are reporting that the Nexus 7 has been discontinued.  Although I haven't found an official notice from Google, the machine is no longer listed on Google.

Of all the tablets I've owned, this one is still the best and is used daily.  For me, seven inches is the perfect size.  With a case, it still fits in a cargo pocket, which makes it easy to carry.

I predict this machine will be the "Windows XP" of tablets, in that it will be in use for a long, long time.

Nexus 7 Apps / Malwarebytes Anti-Malware
« on: March 05, 2014, 09:12:18 PM »
I'm a long time user of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware on all of my Windows machines so I was excited to find an Android version.

The software is free.  After the initial scan, you can run a Privacy Manager scan for apps that access your personal information.

Nexus 7 Apps / Voice Shortcuts Launcher
« on: January 01, 2013, 10:14:24 AM »
Voice Shortcuts Launcher by Project Trinity is an awesome app that I recently installed.  It creates shortcuts for opening apps, websites, files, etc. with voice command.  It works flawlessly on both my N7 and Samsung Galaxy Note 2.  You can run any shortcut simply by saying a word.

Not surprisingly, the first advertisement the application displayed was for GVS Pro.  GVS Pro combines Voice ShortCuts Launcher and Gesture Shortcuts Launcher into one convenient, ad-free app, including all the features of both these apps, as well as adding a whole bunch of new features!

I liked the app so much that I purchased the pro version about 30 minutes after installation.  I haven't tried any of the gesture launches yet, but I'm sure talking to my devices more.

Here are the links for the three apps:
GVS Pro - The pro version for $2.33 US.
Voice Shortcuts Launcher free.
Gesture Shortcuts Launcher free.

Give them a try.  I think you'll say, "I'm glad Tiny recommended this app."

Better buy these Sandisk SDHC cards before they sell them all.

Today, on my bi-weekly trip to the library, I found out that there is a new library service for downloading magazines from Zinio.  A quick web search for "Zinio public library" returned a long list of libraries.  If you're interested, check your local library web site for a Zinio link.

Requirements are a library card and a Zinio account.

For years, I've subscribed to several magazines from Zinio.  I'm looking forward to not renewing them.

The How-To Geek has an article on 6 potential problems and how to fix them.

1.  Bad Performance After Upgrading to Android 4.2
2.  Touchscreen Responsiveness Problems
3.  Tablet Won’t Power On or Charge
4.  Screen Separation
5.  Screen Flicker
6.  Washed Out Colors After Watching a Video

I haven't had any of these problems myself, so I can't verify if they work or not.  I do know that How-To Geek is a reliable website.  You can click here to read the article.

The Lounge: Off Topic Forum / An Interesting Lifehacker Poll
« on: December 03, 2012, 11:01:54 AM »
It was interesting to me anyway.  Although it probably doesn't mean much, this Lifehacker Poll was a vote for the best five android tablets.  The Nexus 7 is far ahead.  There are also many interesting comments in the discussion section.

Nexus 7 Games / Trainyard
« on: November 16, 2012, 08:56:20 PM »
I'm not much of a game player, but I downloaded Trainyard which I thought my Grandson would enjoy playing.  He did.  When the puzzles got harder he started asking for my help.

It wasn't too long before I was playing the game almost full time.  I've found this game to be as addictive as Angry Birds.  The object of the game is to get each colored train to the correct station by drawing track for it to follow.  As the game progresses, you have to move more trains with more complicated track layouts.

There is also a free version, Trainyard Express.  According to the developer, the only difference is the amount of puzzles to solve.
