  • 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.

    $0.99

  • 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.

  • Quickoffice Pro for Nexus 7

    Quickoffice Pro is a full-function office suite that makes it easy to work with Microsoft Office documents. It works with Google Drive cloud storage (and most other popular cloud services) and has an outstanding word processor, spreadsheet, and presentation editor in the package. It also features a good PDF editor.

    $14.99

  • What is this I see?

    Is this a fairly decent unbiased article by Jim? Good Job man, now you're getting it.

    • Jim is as unbiased as any

      His occasional rant about android is sometimes deserved, but its the price of it being the 'windows of mobile', more flexible and open. I believe android will continue to evolve as its 'complex' design stabilizes and allows it to go beyond what iOS (more limited and therefore refined OS) is capable of. By then apple will have refocused on TVs or something.

      • Yeah Right

        He has shown severe Bias towards Apple in the past year. Back handed compliments to Android when their products are reviewed.

        This one was different.

  • Google+ app is better than the browser version!

    Google's G+ app on Android is easier, faster, and more efficient than its browser counterpart. This is where touch-enabled Chromebooks are really going to shine.
