How can I download the movie on the n7 for offline viewing?
Go to Google Play movies, where you see the Transformer movie click the pin/tack icon on the bottom right. It will show a percentage and start downloading. Warning, I just started mine and it is somewhat slow.
Question as I have never used Google Play for movies/books/magazines: if you pin it to store for offline viewing, is there a way to remove it from being stored on the device without deleting it alltogether?
Basically I have the 8GB N7, and I want to know what storing options I have (not sure if my question is clear...)
Just unpin it when you are done. For magazines you can long select the cover, which will give you an option to archive the issue, which deletes it from your device, but keeps it on you account for future retrieval.
