Re: You top 5 apps for G9 tablets.

Thanks to those who added their favourites here and sorry about the typos. I got Feedly now too and find it very good.

Another tip is to use www.bnwmovies.com for old films free (not an app but useful).

Your top 5 apps for G9 tablets.

I can tired of some negativity in the forom so thought we should start highlighting some posite aspects of these tablets as on the whole my G9 80 turbo has been a good buy so far.

Anyway, here is my top 5 apps (not in any order):

Netflix, Times news, Pulse, Kindle and Youtube.

I have the 16gb turbo and it`s fast enough, have played with the 8gb in a shop and did not notice any difference.

Re: Is it really possible to watch flash video reliably on a

Flash does not work on iPads but the iPlayer, Lovefilm and Spotify apps all very stable. Only netflix works on my 80 g9. I have both but was given the Apple device from my work, if it had hdmi I would not have bought Archos tablet too, though it is not as bad as some make out.

Re: Is it really possible to watch flash video reliably on a

I can occasionaly get iPlayer to work in the dolphin browser but it still crashes too often to have any enjoyment from using it; always waiting for the freeze. The Netflix and Crackle apps both work well and rarely cause freezing though lipsink on netflix not always good. When it works the 80 G9 is ...

Re: Archos G9 with UK TV catchup services - Any user feedbac

My hdmi out has been almost trouble free to date with £6 cable from ebay. I agree more rm would and should be included but I use a teask killer as reqd which helps. Good tip on recording from iplayer, will try soon. Worst thing on my tablet is the Skype video, can see person on other end but my vid...

Re: Archos G9 with UK TV catchup services - Any user feedbac

Just tried the 4OD and it played fine using dolphin set as desktop with flash player 11 installed. I use my tablet for streaming to tv via hdmi all the time , probably best thing about the g9. Not sure I would get hard drive model though as you can side load via usb ports or SD card.

Re: Archos G9 with UK TV catchup services - Any user feedbac

bbc iplayer works on my g9 80 with the dolphin browser; occasional freeze but good otherwise. Have not tried the ITV service as nothing on it I watch. The Netflix app is superb though. Midi HDMI works well to my TV but 101 tablet has better wide screen 80 is better for single user as more portable.

Re: no flash plugin help!?

you need to download from app store. Also best to use dolphin browser and set to desktop, should then show flash content.

Re: Favorite things about the G9's?

The Netflix app is the new best new thing I have found. Streaming films on my TV with hdmi capble and super pic quality. How much would it cost do that with apple pad, around £450 min. Negative- The Spotify and iPlayer apps are both very flawed on Android compared to Apple apps and that is for me n...

Re: Favorite things about the G9's?

On the 80 G9,
The size is great for reading on Kindle app and travelling.

The best app is either Google reader or Pulse, again both good for reading and browsing blogs.
