    This may sound stupid but does anyone know if the cisco netacad virtual curriculum will load on this device, it is built on flash if that is of any use

    Nexus 7 does not have flash built into it at last check so I'd assume it won't load wether you can acquire flash or not for it I'm not sure.

    The new Cisco NetAcad (Netspace) website should work a lot better now, but I just had a quick look on my Nexus 7 and the courses don't launch, as they require Flash.

    I'm am a numpty all working now lol. Also installed Poweramp as this is my favourite music player and gives me more options.

    Really happy with the decision I made to get this and also downloaded aldiko book premuim as I find this the best book reader on android

    You can sideload flash and it'll work with the ICS stock Browser. You may need to be rooted to get them but its pretty easy with this device anywho. Just trusted the Cisco netacad site on my tablet (rooted with flash) and it looks to load fine.

    As much as I love bit-tech, I have to say no. The landscape orientation support is temperamental, the forums often refuse to accept your login details (denying you marketplace access) and it seems to be permenantly out of date as far as articles go. The worst problem I have with it is that I can't seem to view any futher into any review or article than the first page - unless i'm being a total numpty, which is entirely possible - there's just no "next page" button in the app.

    I just use the web page, which works fine.

    Maybe try the free one and see what you think?

    Also for anyone who is interested, I tried using a replacement launcher this morning; I installed Apex launcher. It looks exactly like the default launcher and is just as slick, but it supports landscape orientation for the homescreen. Works a treat, and it's free.

    p.s. sorry for the double post!

    I tried that, didn't like it a lot. I'm using rotate(7 day trial, ~£5 for the full version).

    Did you try it on any of the Flash based courses ?

    The site loads fine for me, but the courses do not. I side loaded Flash and installed the Firefox browser but the flash courses do not render properly.

    I'm using a Nexus 7.

    Thanks

    Apex launcher is great, offers the label-free home screen icons, that's a must-have for me!
