Inside Play Store

Nexus 7 is described as the tablet designed for Google Play. However, what will you find in the store? Let’s see.


It is said that Android tablets lack of apps designated for bigger screen and it’s hard to argue against this point of view. When loading Play Store into your tablet, you will gain access to the store but there’s still no way to know which apps are optimized for tablets and which ones are not. Thus, we have to test each one to find out the answer – if the app has tablet’s UI, it will be what you are looking for – if not, you will have normal phone UI which may be enlarged to fill the screen.


Google Play Movies has a number of standard-quality and HD movies streamed directly to tablets. Though, you cannot afford movies in the UK, you only have 24hour watching. What you are provided with in UK is less than those in US where you are able to buy movies as well as access to many TV contents.


Play Book is packed with a lot of contents that can rival Amazon’s ones and they have similar prices. Books app supports well, based mostly on cloud, yet it can download files to your device for offline use. Though, Magazines service is not available in UK.
