Slap a USB Flash Drive In Your Nexus 7 (Or Other Android Device)

By Gary Cutlack on at

This boring looking cable and app combo is your key to enormous Android fun, with the pair able to unlock USB file transfers and game controller connectivity even in Android phones and tablets that don't support USB mounting.

The USB OTG cable works in association with the Nexus Media Importer app, which is compatible with any Android device running version 3.2 of Google's OS or higher. Install that, plug the cable in, then laugh as Google's bizarre decision to restrict USB access on the Nexus 7 disappears.

There are other mounting apps available to add this functionality to the Nexus 7, but they require the faff of rooting your device first. This one's root and fuss free. [Mobile Fun via Pocket-Lint]
