Just got the Google Nexus 7 but don’t know what apps to download to turn the Nexus 7 into an even greater tablet? Here are some of the must have android apps for your Nexus 7, most of them are FREE!
#1. Must Have Nexus 7 Photography App – Camera Launcher for Google Nexus 7
For the people who don’t know what this is, here goes. The Nexus 7 includes a camera app, but it doesn’t have an icon on board for some reason. This app acts as the icon. When you launch this app, it launches the camera app. It’s that simple.

#2. Must Have Nexus 7 Reader App – Amazon Kindle
Your Nexus 7 is a wonderful e-reader, and the Kindle for Android application brings Amazon.com’s collection of more than 750,000 digital books directly to your device. The app lets you purchase books any time you have wireless connectivity and read whenever you have battery life. Many classic books are free, and best-sellers start at just $9.99–less than what you’d pay for a new print version in a bookstore. You can preview books before buying and read them on multiple Kindle devices, thanks to the app’s Whispersync technology, which transfers bookmarks and other annotations between devices.

#3. Must Have Nexus 7 Photography App – Instagram
The idea behind Instagram is simple: You snap a picture, import it into the app, pick a specific filter, add a frame or an effect, and then share it with your followers. The Nexus 7 may not have a rear-facing camera, but that doesn’t mean you can’t view Instagram photos from your friends on its large display. And the front camera works in a pinch. You’ll be amazed just how cool boring old tacos can look on your Nexus 7 after a bit of Instagramming.
