how do I open epub files on my Nexus 7?
Friday 20th of July 2012
I have downloaded the kindle e reader to my new nexus 7 and downloaded two.prc files, one of which wouldn't open correctly. So I downloaded a copy in epub format, but now cannot figure out what directory on my Nexus 7 the epub file should be moved to for the built-in reader. I can't even find the free books that came with the Nexus 7. Were are they stored?
4.1 jelly bean - How can I access android log files on my Nexus 7 without root access?
Thursday 06th of September 2012
Since aLogcat now no longer works with Jelly Bean, how can I access the system log files on my device without either root access or attaching it to a computer?I have tried using adb logcat from my PC and that worked fine, so I know that plenty of messages are being logged.Using logcat from Android Terminal Emulator on my Nexus 7 shows almost no output though and adb logcat from Android Terminal Emulator, starts the daemon but then just says - waiting for device - and nothing more appears.So, is it possible to access android log files on my Nexus 7 without root access?
What's the best video player for anime, on the Nexus 7?
Tuesday 06th of November 2012
exactly what the title say, "what's the best video player for anime, on the Nexus 7?" and what shoud i do to make it work best? keep in mind that anime episodes are sometimes MKV, MP4 or AVI files, and always contain subtitles (inside the container like SRT, SSA, ***..., or encoded in the AVI file) Strangely mVideoPlayer work just fine on my less-powerful Ainol NOVO 7 Elf II, without needing anything than the player itself, but it doesn't work at all on the Nexus 7, for those same files. I tried some promising apps like MX Player, but somehow the video lag and sometimes get out of sync with the audio. Is there anything to improve performance? external codecs?

Hi there- can you elaborate on the use of Overdrive Media Console for downloading ebooks from the library? The app continues to ask me for my Adobe ID and as it redirects me to "get ID" the website times out? Is there any way around this? Thanks for your time!

Personally I prefer a regular e-ink Kindle for reading. Much nicer than reading on a color, backlit LCD/LED screen.
Reading epub files on the Nexus 7?
Tuesday 15th of January 2013
I converted a pdf file to an epub file using Calibre. I copied the ePub file to my Nexus but I can't seem to read it. When I try to aopen it in the Fx File Explorer, I get No installed applications can open files with the media type "application/epub+zip". I have the Wattpad eBook reader installed on the Nexus. What ebook app do I need to be able to read these files? Or do I need to configure Calibre a different way?
