Google Nexus 7

Let me set a bit of background here, I am a bit of an Apple geek.  I've had an iPhone since the second generation, I have had three MacBooks, I have an original iPad and an iMac.  I haven't used my iPad much in the last year or so as I find it too bulky to be easily transportable, it doesn't fit in any of my satchels.  The battery life on my iPhone 5 is so poor and my addiction to social networking so bad that I need something else to help me get through the day if I am not near a power source.  I had been holding out for details on the new iPad Mini but that has all changed.  I am leaving you, Apple.

I recently received the new Google Nexus 7 from Argos and despite being uncertain at first I am now well and truly smitten.  There are more apps available than I expected and some of them are just better on android.  Take the instagram app, how amazing does it look on the 7" screen of the Nexus?  The screen resolution is amazing.

I have been using it on the go with my MiFi so I can keep up with twitter and blog whilst I am out and about.  I have been using the Blogger app for drafting and editing blog posts and have been using Evernote to jot down ideas and reminders.  So useful.

I have also lost hours to Candy Crush!  I didn't think it was possible to get so addicted, ooops!  I promise I won't become one of those people who spends hundreds of pounds getting extra lives etc.

I'm still discovering all that this tablet has to offer.  If you have any must have android apps or any sneaky tips that will make my experience even better please let me know in the comments.

  1. I have always been a massive Apple geek - but they need to do something about it's battery life! Its very sleek the Nexus x

  2. ooooh! Looks really good! I need a tablet in my life! xo

  3. I am the same as you! A complete apple junkie (and not the healthy kind)!!

    I love the way the blogger app looks on the Nexus. I often found the app on the iphone/ipad quite difficult to use for drafting posts etc.
