If you have an older Android device and find an app on the Nexus 7 that's incompatible then you can try this little trick.

Not sure if this is the right place to ask this. I just got a Nexus 7 and when I go to the google plus app my name shows up in the profile. I don't have a google plus account, so can I remove this ?.

I'm afraid you do have a Google+ account. Google is quite unabashed at this so basically everyone using Google accounts is on Google+. Of course none of your info is shared but if you want to delete it, you can. There's a link in the app settings to a Web page where you can delete your entire profile. You can also choose to disable the app, or just turn off the notifications.

A little tip that's come up from the 4.2 update. Your screenlock and setting button haven't disappeared from the the notification swipe down, they've just moved!

shuffeling, editing, adding, removing icons or apps from the right corner notification tray would be great, dont you think so?

Default Open file:/// (local html file in CHROME)

Finally figured out a way to open a local html file in Chrome from a shortcut! Can open it with file:/// in Boat and Xscope and most any other browsers except Chrome.

I found this app that will add "browser" as an "open as" option in your explorer. Can then create a shortcut to that file, and it will open in Chrome (or any browser on your device). There is one extra "click" involved having to select Chrome, but that's kind of nice if you want to use another browser.

Ever had seemingly random pictures appear in your gallery? Instant uploads might be the cause.

Thank you for all your helpful videos. I am new to this and I can't get my home videos which are in windows media player to work . I downloaded a converter but it leaves a watermark unless I pay the price of over 20. I am a pensioner and can't afford it.
I would love to see the videos of my grandchildren on the nexus 7 without a great mark in the middle. Can you help please.

You can turn your google nexus 7 into a phone using the app Talkatone. You can call any number in the US and CANADA for free and texting is free. There is a lite version and one that is paid for that offer other features. You need a google voice account to use this app which is free also. And there are other apps that let you do this such as textplus, textfree,ect but you have to pay for minutes using those apps.

If you download an app from Google play called MX Player, you will be able to play your videos without the need to convert them.
Good luck.

Since the android Jellybean 4.2 update, developer tools have disappeared from the settings screen. If you want them to come back up, here's how to do it.

In this video I show that you can rollback system applications if you're not happy with the updates they send out. For example, I prefer the old Google Currents so I rollback my version in this video.

Or maybe not. I've setup a signature but it doesn't want to include it in my posts?

Nothing. You don't need to worry. All that did was make Developer Options available in Settings. If you don't want to, you don't have to go into them and mess around

So for people who forget to turn off wifi use the app called WIFI TImeout. You set the time from 0 seconds to 5 minutes to turn off the wifi... I used this on my phone and it saved me a lot of battery life. Sometimes it doesnt work though (like 20% of the time)

Good tip. I use Juice Defender which is a bit more involved (not complicated really though) and WAY more functional IMO. There is a free version with limited capability if you want to try it.

Sorry if its been covered else where but...

Do you want the number row on your Nexus 7's stock android keyboard?

if so follow this guide from mostly-tech.com, its written for the Nexus 10 but works fine on the Nexus 7:

Quote:
Expand your keyboard – Since the Nexus 10 has such a large screen you may want to expand to a full-sized PC-style keyboard that includes number keys and extras like the screenshot above has. It’s tricky to set up, but worth it if you like to type in landscape mode. Go to Settings/Language & input and then touch the settings Sliders next to ‘Android keyboard.’ Next, touch ‘Advanced settings’ and touch ‘Custom input styles.’ It will say Deutsch and Francais, but you can ignore that. Touch ‘Add Style’ near the upper right. Then select your language and change the layout from QWERTY to ‘PC’ or one of the other styles. Now touch ‘Add’ and you’ll see your new style appear in the list. Touch ‘Enable’ and use the back key to go back to the Language & input screen. Now touch ‘Input languages’ near the top and uncheck ‘Use system language.’ Lastly, touch ‘English (US) (PC)’ and you’re done. [Thanks to the guys at AndroidPIT for providing this tip.]
the first time you use the keyboard after doing the above, long press the space bar and select the PC version.

Yu enabled the live checker, which requires yu to blink, and did yu try the second option for the face recognition.
