    EDIT: Dropped BK Softhome in favor of SmartBar:

    SmartBar - Android app on AppBrain,

    (Here's the BK Softhome link for comparison: http://www.appbrain.com/app/bk-softhome/com.bk.softhome)

    Has a suite of nice features that can be added individually to the notification bar:

    - Home
    - Show Recent Apps: 4x3 grid (like what you get with a long-press of Home on Android phone)
    - TaskManager: can be used as a task-killer ;) but a long-press and "App detail..." takes you to the Application Info menu (to clear cache/defaults)!
    - Quick Settings: a number of shortcuts/toggles for battery, drive info, wifi, etc.

    ^That BK app looks promising, should have left the link for others. I've been pretty happy with the Zeam notifications on the bottom which balloons out on screen when pressed. The typical top to bottom pull down notification bar found on android now, I think may be too big for opening and closing on the NC's 7" screen.

    I liked the way BK Softhome worked simply and cleanly. Just turned out that SmartBar had the same functionality plus lots of other soft keys!

    update of working:

    Android tablet forum
    Audiobooks
    Beatdown boxing lite
    Bing
    Congress
    ConvertPad
    Crosswords
    Dolphin Browser HD
    Drop (ball looks a bit funny shaped)
    Frozen Bubble
    Giants News
    Jewels
    Labyrinth Lite
    Light Racer 3D
    NPR News
    Nubinews
    Opera Mini
    Piano
    Raging Thunder 2
    Spb Tv
    SleepTimer
    Super Froggy
    SportsTap
    Tic Tac Toe
    Toss it
    Word Drop
    XDA forum

    Observation: I'd say 98% of all apps work, as in install properly and about 15% of the apps that do install are mis-sized. Not sure but I believe the apps just need updating by adding the larger resolution configuration to their programs.

    I thought you said you work in the daytime...? :rolleyes:

    Any chance you'll update your zip-file list? Um, if it's OK with your boss, I mean.

    I'm at work now; I can type but can't too much of video watching. :)

    The apps I just listed are all in the zip I posted yesterday.

    Any chance anybody's had any luck with QuickOffice? -- Or, the corollary question: does anybody have an office suite they'd recommend for the NC? I work with a debate team and having the nook work as a file-viewing unit with my dropbox would be friggin' sweet! Minor editing capabilities would be even better.

    For clarification, I don't have my NC yet due to budget issues, but the next time I get paid, my new nook is gonna be rooted so fast it'll make kudzu jealous...

    And, by the way, thanks to everyone who's already looked into apps and rooting and all that. People like me get to stand on the shoulders of giants like you and I, for one, appreciate it.

    I meant to answer this, but got distracted by a similar question on a nearby thread! Here's where it starts:

    http://www.androidtablets.net/forum/nook/2425-android-tablet-vs-nook-2.html#post22128

    Short answer is if you root (which now includes GMail), you can easily view Office attachments. OH WAIT! Crap...you just wanted to know if QuickOffice works. :eek: Answer is IT'S a stock app on the NC and works fine!!!!!! But it is read-only.

    It's the clock in Fancy widget, using 2 rows, 2 columns, hide background.


    On QuickOffice:

    Ok finally got quickoffice and it installs fine. I can post an apk if anyone wants. Opens both excel (.xls) and word (.doc) documents from SD card well and very quickly. All menus work well with Zeam launcher.

    Is that the full version? I'm pretty sure we got a copy with the stock NC, no?

    Yes the version I have is a full version and if it's stock for the NC, I haven't seen it.
