I’m not talking about anything weird or deviant like smearing it with jam or dressing it up in baby clothes, but I’m interested to find out what people do with their N7s aside from the usual expected stuff like web, social media, reading, movies & games.
For me, I’ve started using it at a comedy club I help to run.
I’m one of the sound technicians, and whilst I’ve been using a laptop to deal with the intro music, sound cues and so on, in the last few weeks I’ve been using a little simple app called Custom Soundboard which allows you to assign audio files to a button on the screen. Dead simple, basically you tap it once, it starts playing. Tap it again and it stops.
So, I use it to intro music at the start of the show, before each act, start and end of the intervals. It’s a bit easier than using a laptop touch pad and keyboard to scroll down, select a file then have to click about or use the keyboard.
Has anyone else put theirs to use they didn’t expect to use it for?
Good question, and I like your own reply.
I wish I had something interesting to share but my use to date has been pretty ordinary.
Perhaps the most exciting, to me, is the chance to do some development for it. I’d like to make some fun little games for my toddler, and I’m part way creating an app that my Mrs has helped to design for her classes at school (she’s a teacher) which is good fun. Slow progress though!
Would love to hear from others…
I have always been curious to have a tablet device that will allow me to do some web design while on the go as oppose to carrying a laptop around.
Thanks to Nexus 7 that is now possible. I downloaded an app called Develop Trial, and it is fantastic as I can create HTML, CSS, JS and even PHP and test it on my Nexus 7 I can even ftp the files to my web host. It is not that easy to code as it is on a desktop /laptop but it is useful for trying out simple ideas while on the move. With a standing case, external keyboard and mouse, I can see how Nexus 7 can be use to create a small project.
I’m living this device so far, absolutely addicted to it.
