Nexus 7 Tablet from Staples & React Mobile Safety App!

A Look at the Nexus 7 Tablet - Available at Staples Canada
With Christmas coming this month, no doubt you're searching for electronics for that tech-savvy person on your list!  For $249.99 CDN, consider putting the Nexus 7 Tablet from Staples Canada under the tree.  With a 7" screen, and a thickness of just 0.41" (10.45mm) the Nexus 7 is very compact and weighs only 0.64lbs (290g).  Staples Canada is currently featuring FREE Shipping on all orders too! 

Use the Nexus 7 Tablet to e-mail, photograph, video, listen to music, watch movies via Google Play or YouTube, surf the internet, or get to where you're going with its built-in GPS.  Other features include Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean), 4,325 mAh battery, accelerometer, gyroscope, microphone and magnetometer! 

The Nexus 7 features 16GB or 32GB internal storage (actual formatted capacity will be less), 1 GB RAM, and NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor.

But for the most important question: is it FUN and useful?  Yes, the Nexus 7 Tablet is a fun and useful device--and a great gift for that teen or adult who has been requesting an iPad Mini (as the pricepoint is much lower).  It is powered by Google, and quickly makes the Google user feel right at home with saved bookmarks and preferences.  In my photo above, note that I was able to play Disney's Planes movie on the device after logging in to my Google Play. 

As this is a Google device, the Nexus 7's browser is the fantastic Google Chrome!  What makes this even better, is all the great FREE (and cool) Chrome extensions available to this device, such as the Hola! internet unblocker.  Also, download the FREE React Mobile safety app and SOS distress signal (read on below for more details).


Preparing to Install the React Mobile Safety App on the Nexus 7
If you are gifting the Nexus 7 tablet this year for Christmas, I would suggest loading the FREE React Mobile safety app to the device to keep your loved ones safe.  As mentioned above, it's a SOS distress signal, which when pressed, accesses the user's GPS location and sends it to select emergency contacts via text message, e-mail, or even to Facebook/Twitter--without an onlooker or attacker knowing.  If you load on this safety app, do make sure it has been set up and initialized correctly with emergency contacts.

Just Press Shield to Activate SOS Alert
Above you can see the React Mobile safety app loaded onto the Nexus 7 Tablet.  Once it is set up, it is easy to send out an SOS: simply press and hold the shield to activate or deactivate.  It's very easy to use and to call for help when needed.  I found the the app very responsive, but it is important to learn how to deactivate the device if a false alert is triggered (there is a short countdown before an alert is sent out).
Sending Out an SOS with React Mobile Safety App
Within the React Mobile safety app, there is an option to Dial 911 (or the emergency number in your specific country) in case of danger.  This option presents itself after your emergency contacts have all been notified first.

Check out this VIDEO below, to see how the React Mobile app works:


An important feature of the React Mobile safety app, is the "follow me" premium feature, which allows trusted contacts to keep track of you and follow you to safety when running at night, going for a bicycle ride, walking home at night, and more.  When you reach your destination, you can press the "I'm Safe" button, and your contacts will be notified that you're okay.

Would anyone on your list would enjoy receiving the Nexus 7 Tablet from Staples?  Are you interested in downloading the FREE React Mobile Safety app?  Do you know anyone who could also benefit from it?

    1. Good morning, Amy! The React Mobile app does not come with the Nexus 7; I downloaded it for free separately. Available for free in the iTunes or Google play stores.

    1. Dawn, we also have an iPad and there is something that can be said for either. I agree: the React Mobile app is free for the taking, so why would someone not make good use of it?
