New Nexus 7 Owner 'Top 5 Must Have App' Suggestions
« on: December 27, 2012, 02:12:49 PM »
So with the holiday season wrapping up and us hurtling full steam ahead towards a new year, I know there's a lot of new Nexus 7 owners that are joining us on the forum.  With so many great apps available in the Google Play Store it can be a little overwhelming for some to know where to start.  Therefore I thought some of our experienced Nexus 7 and Android hands could lend some suggestions.  To keep things manageable let's keep it to a maximum of 5 suggestions per member. Give us what you think should be the very first and most important 5 apps you would download for your Nexus 7 if you first received your tablet. 

Here's mine in no particular order...and of course my selection of Netflix only applies if you are a subscriber so you can replace that with your favorite video streaming site of choice or just use the Google Play Store.  I've chosen to only include one game as a pick for my current fave and I would encourage others to really focus mostly on making app suggestions as well.  We can start a separate thread just focusing on games in the games board.  There's a ton more I can think of but these are probably 5 of what I use most.

1. TuneIn Radio Pro - Listen to and record hundreds of radio stations, podcasts etc.
2. Netflix - Movies and tv shows galore!
3. Flipboard - One of the best ways to read news on your tablet
4. Need For Speed:  Most Wanted - Awesome racing game that shows off the graphic potential of your Nexus 7
5. Moon+ Reader Pro - My pick for the best pdf/ebook reader - Looks fantastic, smooth animations, crisp text, tons of customization options and compatibility (epub, pdf etc)

All of these titles can be found in the Google Play Store.

1. Tapatalk - For all your forum reading and posting...
2. comiXology - Comics, comics, comics...
3. Dropbox - Best of all the Cloud storage options IMHO...
4. Nvision - Android and Tegra news app
5. Stickmount - For those rooted that want to connect a Thumb Drive or SD card via an OTG cable, this allows read and writing. Alternatively, if your not rooted you can use Nexus Media Importer.

Five, that was real hard because I could easily have included another five...

Not necessarily my favorite apps, but these are the five that I use the most on my N7:

1.  MX Player
2.  ES File Explorer
3.  Zinio (magazine subscriptions)
4.  Dolphin Browser
5.  Documents To Go
I used to be crazy until I found out that insane pays more.

Where am I?  What am I doing in this handbasket?

Since a couple of mine are covered by other people, I'll put some different ones:

1. Maxthon Browser - A quick browser alternative.
2. Nova Launcher - Customize your launcher (home screen) with something much faster
3. Thumb Keyboard - An easier to manage keyboard
4. SNES9X ES - Best free snes emuIator ive found
5. Imgur Gallery by Duiker101 - Best imgur viewer so far

I have many more recommended apps, but these I couldn't do without.

I've only just gotten my N7 recently, so this list will change often as I try new things, but the current top five are:

1) Amazon Kindle
2) Google Play
3) Next Issue
4) gReader
5) Readability

Also, Tapatalk HD Beta

Longtime favorites that are really nice on the larger screen:
Evernote
QuickOffice Pro
DropBox

and I'm loving Dragon Mobile Assistant (Beta)
