Quote:Jon,As tezster says, the Nexus 7 is too large for a shirt pocket. It fits comfortably in larger jacket and pants pockets, and it always cools down enough at my observing sites to where I need a jacket during the evening, so the N7 is a good size for me.
Quote:Here's another question: How well does Screendim work?
Quote:Jon, Screendim doesn't shut off the navigation button illumination on my Nexus 7. Apparently the Screendim developers know that function doesn't work on many Android devices, as they warn "This is noncompatible (sic) with all devices." They suggest that that you may have to tap elsewhere on the screen to toggle button illumination off, but it didn't help.

Quote:Yesterday I figured out how to dim the white navigation buttons on Android 3.2 and above (Hurray!). They are shrunk down to barely detectable dim dots. This is the same thing the Kindle app does when its controls are hidden.
Quote:Bill,Does SkySafari for Android support hardware acceleration on the Nexus 7? If not, when do you expect this feature?
