    You've been lied to.

    When you create an app, you can specify various requirements of the devices that it'll be available for. For example, you can specify that the app only show up for devices running a particular version of Android and and later via the "minSdkVersion" flag. You can also set the highest version of Android the app will be permitted for with the "maxSdkVersion" flag. Google recommends against doing this because it makes apps that would work fine be unavailable to newer devices/versions of Android.

    Warning: Declaring this attribute is not recommended. First, there is no need to set the attribute as means of blocking deployment of your application onto new versions of the Android platform as they are released. By design, new versions of the platform are fully backward-compatible. Your application should work properly on new versions, provided it uses only standard APIs and follows development best practices.
    You can read all the details here.

    TL; DR: It's the developer's fault, not Google's.

    My Galaxy Nexus had this from ICS and also on JB. Once you've brought up the clock, press and hold, the screen changes to a blue digital clock on black background. From here a single tap will dim it out (same black screen/blue clock). I would assume its the same on the Nexus7 although I don't have one on hand to confirm it's the same. nice option to have although I never use it.

    The rotation lock is hidden at the top in the notification bar.
    For example, you can unlock, rotate to landscape, then relock. That keeps it in landscape, except for home screen.
    for those who this is an issue, try "ultimate rotation control" in Play Store. it is a 7 day trial and then $2.99, seems a bit steep, but works great for those who want home screen rotation abilities.

    Those seem like nice apps, but I am still hoping to find a way to just connect my N7 to a television without the need of a PC or a console. Really wish they would just allow MHL support. Anyone know if it is possible to upgrade software to handle it or if hardware is missing inside the device?

    This isn't true. Amazon doesnt make more money by having you on a Kindle fire. They just want you in the ecosystem. This app will be coming to Android. Eventually. Just like the Kindle, Amazon MP3, and Amazon app.

    New to this forum and loving it so far. Searched and couldn't find a thread for Tips and Tricks with the Nexus 7. If you found anything post it up and perhaps someone didn't know about it.

    One thing I noticed is in Google Chrome if you have multiple tabs open you can just swipe the screen to change them. Don't have to click on them. So if you have like 6 tabs open just start swiping the right side of the screen and it changes them.

    Anyone got any tips or tricks to share? I'd personally love to read em so I can get the most out of this device.
    This seems to work but when I swipe I go from the first tab to the last. Smaller 'swipes' didn't work at all.

    This isn't necessary.

    Just tap on the rotation icon located to the immediate right of the date at the top of the notification area. This unlocks and locks screen rotation.

    The real issue is that even if you lock the screen at a certain orientation, when you go back to the home screen, the orientation goes back to orientation with the camera on top and charge port on the bottom.

Then choose Cloud Print. I only tried it on a web page so far.
    I don't see a Goggle Cloud print app, so can you tell us the name of the Cloud Print app you are using. Thanks

    The print app is called Cloud Print. You then go to the website to set it up:

    Google - Cloud Print

    I guess I am having a mind dense two days. I already use Google cloud print between my PC and printer and also have a Canon app that lets me print pictures from my phone to my printer.

    When I go to the play store I don't see any cloud print app developed by Google but I see a few other ones.

    So can someone post a link to this Google cloud print app on the play store, or tell me who the developer of this application is. I want to get the one everyone likes.

    Maybe, but I wouldn't count on it. Amazon may not make money on the Fire, and they may just want you in their ecosystem, but if they get you to buy a Fire you'll likely remain in their ecosystem exclusively, that is the real point of the Fire, the Fire doesn't just enable you to use their ecosystem, but it also stops you using Google's Play Store. And their instant video service may be something they feel they can withhold from regular Android, since it runs on the Fire already they could have made it available for regular Android a long time ago if that is what they wanted. Ultimately whether there'll be an Android app for it depends on them deciding it will be more profitable than keeping it exclusive to the Fire.
