Nexus 7 and iPad mini -- hot tablets for the holiday buying season
The two hottest tablets this year are the Nexus 7 by Google and the iPad mini by Apple. They are both highly portable and powerful tablets for a decent price. Neither are the most powerful in the Android and iOS stables but they will be highly popular gifts.
Those finding one of these tablets in their Christmas stocking or under the tree will be looking for good apps. The apps in this collection are a good place to start getting the most use out of the new Nexus 7 or iPad mini.
Falcon Pro for Nexus 7
If the new Nexus 7 owner is looking for a good Twitter client, Falcon Pro is a solid choice. The app makes good use of the high resolution Nexus 7 screen, and the interface is well designed to take advantage of touch control.
Google+ for Nexus 7
Google+ is the social network from Google, and this app on the Nexus 7 is a joy to use. It presents network updates in a gorgeous graphical layout that is a smooth performer. All major Google+ functions are a simple tap away.
The app is so good I find myself using the Google+ network far more often than I used to.
