Google Nexus 7 - Owners thread

My nexus 7 just arrived today along with the £15 credit for the play store.

Can anyone suggest any decent games or apps to download?

Thought I would start an owners thread due to the sheer amount of interest in the deals.
Would be a good idea to keep all the information in one place, so post away.

Pretty awesome, got no complaints.
No idea why people don't like 7 inch screens' this one is great.

Very fast and easy to use, updated to 4.1 earlier and have no complaints.
Streams movies from my network hard drive just fine.

For anyone interested pcworld/Curry's have in store stock in some stores. Had 10 16gb versions in the selly oak Birmingham pcworld. Very happy so far. Smooth and crisp. Unfortunately youtube haven't enabled background playback :(. Also Skype quality looking to be shoddy until they make an update

So far Downloaded critical strike, tvcatchup, spotify, Skype. All working great really, well apart from the Skype issue

I am still waiting for my order from HMV for my 16GB.

What cases are people buying for these?

Not found a decent case yet.
Any suggestions? The £5.99 ones on ebay have some pretty bad reviews
#10
Ones I found on amazon didn't have reviews due to early date. Guess will just have to bite the bullet

I read dolphin browser with flash installed works. Your best bet is to go to the xda nexus 7 developers forums, your question is probably already answered there

I was also very skeptical on a 7inch. But now I have it I found its perfect for anything I need it for. 10inch would be too big for my needs...after all is supposed to be a portable device. Take the plunge I bet you'll enjoy it. If not just return

Played with one in PC World today, sold iPad 1st gen tonight via gumtree. Love the 7" form factor, weight and feel of the device - it's perfect. Only issue I see is I'm used to app compatibility with iTunes and also using Calibre for loading eBooks onto the device.

yeah but me personally i dont want to change all the UI (user interface) google developers have done for the jellybean seems a waste of time buying it only to change the UI.
