    Default Pixel tips, tricks, and apps

    I've retired my old laptop -- I can't unsee the screen of the Pixel, and I never wanna go back.

    I can't be the only one, so let's build a thread of helpful advice for us users!

    I'll start with the best Skype app I could find:
    imo Messenger

    It handles chat, calls and file transfers. Works good enough, even if it's not got every single feature the stand-alone Skype for Linux does.

    Thanks for that, Jerry!

    For simple photo editing I use PicMonkey. Pretty easy to use, works with your files right in Drive and integrates with the file viewer.

    What do you use for printing docs, pdfs, and gmail? Can I connect a printer through the usb port? Wifi printing like I do with my laptop? Cloud Print like I do with my S3 and tablet?

    You'll use cloud printing like with your S3 and tablet. Works very well with any Chrome OS device.

    Super. That's simple enough and has been working well for me.

    My wife does chart reviews for a local law firm. They usually send her the chart on a disc as in pdf format. Any solutions or ideas since Chromebooks do not come with a disc drive.

    Has anyone found a good Exchange e-mail app? I'm trying out CloudMagic which seems to be alright. It's a bare bones so I'd like to find something with a few more features.

    Have you tried Outlook? I don't have Exchange email anymore, so I haven't tried it, but it seems like that should be a natural choice...I also used AquaMail when I had Exchange mail, and it was okay. I wasn't crazy about any of the options at the time I was using them.
