  • Tip #6: Get maps for offload use

    Tip #6: Google Maps on Android Jelly Bean now lets you take maps on the go. Select an area to download, up to about 85 MB.

  • Tip #7: Read the Guidebook

    Tip #7: Google included the Nexus 7 Guidebook on the device and I actually found several good tips and directions that were quite helpful. The key words for searching are very helpful.

  • Tip #8: Install Camera Launcher

    Tip #8: There is a front facing camera on the Nexus 7, but no shortcut to launch the camera. Download the free Camera Launcher utility from the Play Store.

  • Buyer Beware....

    This free movie isn't available in Canada. So there's NO free movie or credit for Canadian customers. Unfortunately, Canadians are pretty much an afterthought when it comes to these "promotions or deals".
