Yes it has..


NVM, it seems all I can do is stream media off my N7, with My ONE running CM I can sync files, but this is in Win 8, should be doable with Win 7 too

Looks like it might be a bit of a hassle, try one of the apps already listed, might work better and seamless

I listen to stock LG music app as it supports native flac playback and disables any DSP effects when such uncompressed file is played. PowerAmp interface is confusing and needs work to make it appealing and user friendly.

Besides my usual apps are Evernote, Sygic navigation, Nova launcher prime if I install a CM 11 based ROM, Skype, WhatsApp, Shazam, Heartrate Monitor, Runkeeper, Meye (remote surveillance) and BSPlayer for videos.

I posted in this thread a while back. My selection of apps hasn't changed much:


500 Firepaper - Automatically download and cycle wallpapers from various categories.

BallMaze - Nifty little puzzle game. Not too difficult but it makes you think.

BitTorrent Sync - Near-perfect solution for backing up & synchronizing files between PCs and devices. Early versions were ridiculous battery consumers, so I configured Tasker to launch the app and terminate it automatically.

Chess By Post - I own an Android device. My brother has a Windows Phone. My mom has an iPhone. This app lets us all play chess together.

Wolfram Alpha - Invaluable if you're taking any math or science course in college.

What you guys use for listening to stuff? I'm currently with Powercramp... excuse me, PowerAMP. It sports real good battery life, even with non-native DSP enabled (which are vastly better than MusicFX on my device - it was the opposite on the ancient Desire) but perhaps there's something new out there.

N7 Player barely uses any battery compared to stock SG4 player.
