Must Have Apps For The Nexus 7

Who says iPad users get to gave all of the fun? If you’ve got yourself a Nexus 7 tablet there plenty of great apps out there for you. From productivity to entertainment, there is a little bit of something for everybody in the Google Play store Below is a list of what I consider to be the essential must have apps for the Nexus 7 in no particular order.

Nova Launcher Prime - This home screen replacement app can really enhance your Nexus 7 experience. It enables faster swiping, customizable icons, notifications for unread email, custom icons, and a host of other features. There are many customization apps out there for the Android platform, but this one is by far the best.

Wolfram Alpha - College would have been a lot easier if I had had this in my pocket the whole time. Having the Wolfram Alpha app is like having a genius in your pocket. Basically you can ask it anything, literally anything, like math, history, language, conversion, etymology, whatever, and it will return with a detailed answer. It’s pretty awesome.

Kindle - Amazon is still at the top of the heap as far as reading apps go. It’s great looking and a pleasure to use. You get access to the amazon store which has a ton of paid and free books so you’ll always have something to read, and it allows you to sync across devices so you’ll never lose your place in a book again. Oh yeah, it’s free.

Office Suite Pro - If you plan on using your Nexus 7 for business, this is the app to have. The Office Suite Pro app allows you to create, edit, print, and share all of the common types of Microsoft documents like Word and Excel. You can use it with a cloud service such as Google Drive or Dropbox, so that your documents are with you wherever you go. At $14.99 it’s a little on the pricey side, but man is it convenient.

Netflix - You probably already know what this app does. You might even already be using Netflix on your computer. Well this app is just like that except that you can take it with you and watch movies or tv wherever you go. One of the features I like the best is being able to start a movie at home and finish it somewhere else. This app keeps track of where you were in a movie or show so that you can pick up right where you left off.

WebMD - Hypochondriac? Yes, there is an app for that. With this app you can enter in your symptoms and find out why you’re feeling sick. There’s also information on drugs and treatments, a pill identifier, and listings of local healthcare providers. The first aid essentials guide also makes this a really smart app to have.

Plex for Android - If you have a large media library you are definitely going to want to check this one out. It connects to the Plex Media Server Software installed on your PC and provides an organized view and allows you to stream the files in your library to your tablet. It will also fetch reviews and other information about the files you already have. This is great app for those of us that are too lazy to keep our folders organized.

Youtube - Why limit yourself to only wasting time in front of your home or office computer? With this app you can keep up with what’s going on on Youtube no matter where you are. You can stream videos in HD, subscribe to channels, and share them to your favorite social media platform. Being unproductive has never been so easy.

Spotify - This app is truly great. Spotify is a streaming music provider that gives you access just about any music you can think of. It’s free with ads or you can pay a low monthly charge to get rid of them and unlock the full capability of the app. It’s a great app to get and keep the party started.

Flipboard - This is simply one of the most well designed apps for reading web content on the market today. Flipboard takes your Facebook, Twitter, RSS feeds, and other web content and puts them in an attractive easy to read magazine format. Also you can create your own magazines out of things that you have found around the web. It’s a great way to keep up with all of you social sites and blogs.

Finding the right apps for your Nexus 7 or other Android tablet can make a world of difference. With the right combination you can turn that piece of metal and wires in your into a productive, entertaining, and fun device. There are new apps coming out every day and the future of tablet computing looks very promising.
