Considering buying the Nexus 7 so I came here and just signed up.
« on: September 09, 2012, 09:17:44 AM »
Would love to test drive the Nexus 7 Chrome and You Tube Apps on another Android device prior to buying one.    Can someone share these Apps with me as they do not show up on Google Play unless you have a Nexus 7.

Thanks in advance.

Both apps are virtually the same as their mobile counterparts, I'm pretty sure there aren't any UI differences between the You Tube app on my Galaxy S2 and my N7.
The only difference I can see with the Chrome app is on the N7 it has tabs like on Chrome desktop browser.

Google Chrome

You Tube

So far the only Android device I have is a Google TV and these Apps do not show up in Google Play for me.   So to try them out I need a copy of the APK's so that I can side load them.

What country are you based?

Do they not appear in Google Play if you click the links I posted above?

Google TV operates without a touch screen so many Apps show up as not compatible and can only be side loaded if someone is willing to share the APK with you!
