    Default Apps that don't work on the Nexus 7

    Gonna keep a running list of apps I use that aren't available on the Nexus 7. And by that I mean not able to install from Google Play, which is what most folks do.

    Presumably some will be checking for a camera, and that'll cause problems. Others ... I dunno what their deal is.

    • Delta Air Lines - No idea why it's not available
    • Instagram - presumably because the tablet doesn't have a rear-facing camera
    • CNN - Though that's not necessarily a bad thing?
    • HBO Go - Grrrrrrrrrr

    The CNN app is worthless because you have Google Currents or can visit cnn.com on the google chrome browser

    aren't available or won't work? Could you use an apk from your phone and use it on the 7?

    I would guess that most things that are not available just need to be updated for Jellybean. I just checked and HBO Go specifically states the last update supports up to 4.04.

    I'm curious about that too. I have the Slingplayer on my Evo 3D and would love to see it work on a tablet. I don't want to spend another $30 on the tablet version.

    Hey Phil,
    I've heard talks from several different sources saying that the amazon kindle and b&n nook apps, as well as some other amazon offerings, were not available in the play store for the N7. Is this accurate? Thanks a ton!

    ^ yeah thats always been a pain in the ____ with Slingplayer. (Trying having iOS as well - two MORE $30 apps).

    I have the Android one for tablets, but am hoping it will be usable in Jelly Bean. I will report once I get my Nexus 7.

    Back when I got my Galaxy Tab, I was able to load the "phone version" of Slingplayer that I had already purchased just fine...but eventually ended up buying the tab version anyway because it supported higher quality video and better UI and controls...so now I have both. I would think that with the 7" screen of Nexus 7, if you already have purchased the phone version you should be able to roll with it if you don't feel like spending extra $$$...but that's a different story as far as whether you can even install it on JB.

    I'm still waiting on my Nexus 7...and a new power supply for my Slingbox(!), so I'm not sure yet what works.

    I'm with you on that one, I'd like to use that $25 credit on other things than a new SP.

    Oh man! Can somebody verify this please??? I can't live without my Kindle app. That will be a huge disappointment for me if that's the case.

    I'm sure Amazon will be working on an update to make it JB compatible but I need it NOW!

    Isn't this sort of the normal deal when a new major or semi-major version of Android is released?

    App makers need to test the 4.1 sdk and the 7/Galaxy to make sure there aren't any issue with their apps, and some want to go as far as adapting their app to better make use of any new features from the new version.

    Amazon Mobile doesn't work, kindle app does.

    I couldn't install The Economist on my N7.

    Got the apk. Works fine. Weird.

    Flipboard is available. How you like it on a 7" may be different.

    I've been installing all the stuff I had on my phone and thus far the apps I've noticed are incompatible with the Nexus 7 are:

    Best Buy
    Tetris
    Firefox

    None of these are as big a deal as Amazon not working though. I can second that installing the apk from instagram works nicely and looks gorgeous on the display.
