5 Tips and Tricks for the Nexus 7

You might have thought things over and decided that it is time to sell broken iPad and get the Nexus 7. This 7-inch device is quite nifty and handy. In terms of functions and features, you might think that the small size makes it limited. Think again – there are actually some really cool things you can do with it. Here are some of them:



Face Unlock

For those who have the Samsung Galaxy S3, this is actually a familiar feature. The difference with the Nexus 7 is that it can be configured in such a way that the user only needs to blink his eyes in order to unlock the screen. This is as highly personalized and secure as security features for a tablet OC can go.

Google Voice Search

If you are frustrated that the iPad does not have Siri yert, rejoice, because for the Nexus 7, a similar feature is present. Pretty much similar to Apple’s Siri, all you have to do is to speak and ask a question. The program will process the available data and answer the question by giving out the information needed. 

Easy transfer of music files from iTunes to the Nexus 7

Contrary to what many people say, you can get the music that you have from your iTunes and transfer it to your Nexus 7 tablet PC. The great thing about this is that you do not need any software to accomplish it. All you have to do is to copy the iTunes files to your desktop and make sure that your Nexus 7 is connected to the laptop. It will work similar to an external storage drive and all you have to do is to copy and paste the items you got from iTunes into your Nexus 7. Who says you can’t work an Apple program on a Google device? 

Adding Google Play Widgets

If you want quick and easy access to your most used applications or information just create widgets. Then you won’t have to install an applications folder just to access them. 
 
Getting more space

Unfortunately, the Nexus 7 does not have USB or SD card ports, so you cannot use USB devices or SD cards to expand your storage date. With the limited internal storage offered for the Nexus 7, it is about time that you utilize other cloud-storage options such as Dropbox, Google Drive, Sugar Sync, among others. You can also access direct streaming of music and videos from Google Music and Google Play Store. This will free up your tablet PC for more important files that you need with you all the time. 


They say that the Nexus 7 will make you decide to sell broken iPad right away. For those who want to have a smaller tablet PC but were not that impressed with the offerings from Samsung and Amazon, then the Nexus 7 may actually be the best option in the market right now. So, you might indeed be tempted to sell iPad for the Nexus 7.
