Intel is not a name we often see in the Android universe, but they can do it and they do it very well. The Dell Venue 8 7000 is pure testament of this, as is the device we are taking a look at in this post – the Acer Iconia Tab 8. This is an amazing tablet, but we are focusing on one specific part of this device today.
The Acer Iconia Tab 8 has a stunning display. When I first saw it I thought it was a sticker over a fake tablet – that’s how vibrant the colors were. This tablet is perfect for someone looking to consume media, watch movies or tv shows. However, the wonderful world of Android has some apps that can allow you to enjoy the display when you’re not binge-watching Netflix.
Let’s take a look at some of the best apps you can use with the stunning Acer Iconia Tab 8. Simply click on the app’s title to be re-directed to the Google Play Store. You can download these apps from there.
Australian artist Justin Maller has become popular for his amazing photos, stunning designs and digital-esque images. You have likely seen some of his work, and Facets brings you all images from his year-long project, “image per day”.
These images are full of color and make amazing wallpapers. You will have a great time checking these out with the Acer Iconia Tab 8’s 1920x1200p vibrant screen.
Wallsies is known for its awesome wallpapers, which include both complex images as well as minimalistic designs. There seems to be a trend with colorful images in this app, which means it will be a great match for vibrant displays.
Pattrn is another wallpaper app. It isn’t exactly for HD displays, but it happens to have very cute and often flowery patterns I know my fellow female techies will love.
It’s also a very fun wallpaper app, in it of itself. You can set different wallpapers for different days/weeks. Other options include searching by keyword or color patters, and you can even save a list of your favorite wallpapers.
500px is a must-have app for any person with a gorgeous display, or if you simply want to admire good images. This application is recognized for featuring the very best work, from the best photographers in the world.
It works much like a social network for photographers, but it also helps them showcase and even sell their work. Want to see the best photos on the internet? Those who have a good screen will have to check out 500px.
VSCO Cam is one of the best (if not the best) camera applications out there. It features a camera, multiple editing capabilities and even social features. You can publish your photos and follow photographers across the world.
This is really a great tool for any photo enthusiast. And if you have a good display to enjoy your favorite images, you simply must check it out.
Any video or film enthusiast will tell you Vimeo is the place to go if you want a popular video sharing service that doesn’t ruin quality. Vimeo keeps the best quality possible for sharing video, so I couldn’t help but give it a good look with this stunning tablet display. The app and videos are awesome!
Journey is known for offering the most visually-stunning and interactive experience in journal writing. Journal, their Android app, allows you to keep a record of your experience in a clean, simple and beautiful manner.
The app supports photos, videos, geolocation, writing (of curse), publishing to Tumblr and more. It’s the full traveling and journal experience.
Airbnb is a great traveling service that allows you to rent housing for short periods of time. Not only is it a great tool, but the app happens to offer great imaging to show you places available for rent, as well as their surrounding areas.
Need something to do around your area? Gogobot has been widely recognized as one of the best applications to find things do do around your vicinity. Images are not always the best, but you find some jewels from time to time. Not to mention, the app is great and it has saved me from many a boring night.
Stuck on Earth is one of my very favorite traveling apps. It focuses on places that are good for seeing, exploring or photographing. This means that images used in this app tend to be gorgeous.
Want to see the best places in this planet? This is the app to get. And if you are a photographer, you will love the places this app can take you for your photo shoots.
Have you had enough beautiful imagery and traveling fun? It’s time for a good meal and Foodspotting is very likely to get you salivating with their delicious images. This app works as a “visual guide to good food and where to find it.”
I have found great meals using this app. Plus, it’s fun to just look at delicious food, right?
While we’re talking about food porn: PornBurger.me is not an app, but a must-visit website if you like Burgers…and who doesn’t like Burgers? I’m vegetarian and I love this site. I would be lying if I said it wasn’t my homepage. So delicious….
Lumosity is a very interesting and visually-stunning app with a series of games. Not only will it tickle your visual fancy, but this app actually trains your memory and attention.
Need to flex those brain muscles? Lumosity is made by neuroscientists and gets your brain juices healthily flowing. The games are usually very colorful and pretty, making this app great for the amazing Acer Iconia Tab 8 display.
