DirecTV Remote Pro
This app is a fully functioning remote control for your DirecTV system. It duplicates the hardware remote control, and provides all the functions of the real remote.
Never again do you have to put the Nexus 7 down to grab the TV remote.
If you listen to podcasts this app is a great way to do it on the Nexus 7. You can control your podcast subscriptions, find new podcasts, and listen to downloaded episodes.
Google Play Music
If you buy music from the Google Play Store, this app is a great way to listen to it.
It streams music stored in the Google Cloud, and also plays music stored locally on the Nexus 7.
It is integrated in the Nexus 7 lock screen, so you can play/pause music without unlocking the tablet.
