Kindle Fire, I’m breaking up with you. The new Acer tablet has my heart. As soon as I ripped this bad boy out of the package, I got busy downloading all my favorite apps. In the process, I came across some new ones and just had to share!
There’s an app for that…

Airbnb is the easiest way for people to monetize their extra space and showcase it to an audience of millions. How Elliot and I ended up staying in this 5-star carriage house at Niagara on the Lake last weekend!
Connect from anywhere in the world- for free! Since us Droid users don’t have the luxury of iMessage over WiFi, this app will allow me to text, call and group message overseas. This app will come to my rescue in Australia, rather than racking up thousands in phone bills!
5. Photo editing
If you want more control than Insta-filters, run a photo through Snapseed before Instagramming it. Snapseed straddles the line between full-fledged image editor and filter app, but it brings a lot of useful tools to the table. It makes any photograph extraordinary with a fun, high-quality photo experience right at your fingertips. Everyone and their mother can enhance, transform, and share their photos with a professional feel.

All you faithful Apple users out there may want to turn your head for this rant. They’re like a cult, seriously. NO I will never get an iPad or an iPhone. I had a Macbook for freshman year of college, hated it. The weird trackpad, Open/Close X’s on the opposite side of the screen. I guess it comes down to personal preference.
So the Acer by Intel, Yes, it has a smaller screen than the iPad (7.9″ instead of 9.7″), But you know what? I love the little guy, because it better suits my needs. I am amazed with the battery life on this sucker (8 hours does fly buy when you’re reading 50 Shades, however)
Whether you’re a traveler, student, or love laying outside on your back patio, I would highly recommend getting yourself one of these bad boys!
Kindle Fire, you have been replaced.
