With just the 1.2-Megapixel front-facing camera, you can only really take pictures of yourself, but if you need to go custom filter happy on self portrait pics the retro camera app now comes with support for the 7-inch Android tablet adding the ability to take pictures, upload them to Instagram and share photos via Flickr.
ASUS and Google opted not to support screen rotation when accessing the Nexus 7 homescreen, but if you want to add the functionality, the Apex Launcher Pro app is one way to solve the issue. As well as delivering a more landscape-friendly experience, the latest version also include the ability to have multiple app drawers, overlapping widgets and pinch-on gesture support..
The Nexus 7 doesn't ship with a dedicated Camera app which probably has something to do with the fact there is no rear-facing camera on board. If you really want to access those funny effects and take 720p HD video using the 1.2-Megapixel rear-facing camera, download this app and you are back in business.
Considering the Nexus 7 is a Wi-Fi only device, you will probably have to get into the habit of storing stuff offline to catch up on later. Instapaper is one of the best ways to download text from web pages to read when you are out of the Wi-Fi comfort zone, with the ability to upload up to 500 articles and unlimited content on the Instapaper website.
