    Default Google Nexus 10 and the Optimum app

    I'm looking to upgrade from my Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0. I need a bigger screen and just a better performing tablet.

    I'm debating between the Nexus 10 and the LG G Pad 8.3. But my very critical question: Is the Optimum app for watching live TV (if you're an optimum customer) compatible with the device yet???

    If anyone can help me, I'd appreciate it. It's kind of a deal breaker for me as I need to have access to the optimum app to be more efficient at my job.

    Thanks!!

    I searched in vain to see if I could find a device compatibility list for it (my Google powers are not that mighty, apparently). However, I do know the app is compatible with the 2013 Nexus 7 (so I would guess it would be ok on the Nexus 10, but no guarantees).

    I did see this on Optimum's web page:

    The Optimum App is now available on Android phones and tablets running Operating System version 4.2 or higher. For those devices running an Operating System less than 4.2, select your carrier below to see the current list of supported Android devices.
    So it must be good, I'd assume.

    You mean this app?

    Yes, it is finally compatible with the Nexus 10. I have been ******** to them for a while that it was only compatible with my phone and who wants to watch TV on a 4" screen.

    Yup - that's the one. How does it run? I have the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 and, for the average performance tablet, the app runs well. But I need to upgrade to a bigger screen - as I use my tablet for a second tv screen.

    Is it smooth on the Nexus 10?

    It is as smooth as your internet connection.

    Thanks, bud. Looks like I'm going to have to go with the Nexus 10 as my tablet of choice seeing as it appears the G Pad 8.3 is NOT compatible with the Optimum app.

    Anyone know if the update to 4.4.X on the Nexus 10 has caused problems with the Optimum app running?

    I just got 4.4.2 pushed last night but have not tried it yet. The app worked fine with 4.4.0.

    Beautiful. I'm hearing the app doesn't work on the G Pad 8.3. So it looks like the Nexus 10 will be my selection.

    Pat - you were a big help. I sincerely thank you!
