Android on Chrome OS can be a little janky at times, partly because app developers never planned on a screen that big, and partly because Google still has some work to do. Meanwhile there
are some apps I actually use, and you might too.
I was a fan of the
Secure Shell Chrome App until I found out I could have a complete native Linux user space OS, including openSSH. Well done!
More responsive than the web app, better offline experience, and the layout is decent for a larger screen.
Inbox on the other hand has an awful layout for a Chromebook.
Much nicer than the website, which hasn't had a meaningful redesign in ages.
Has a better user experience on Android and you can download movies to your device.
Exactly the same reasons as
Lighter weight and has better notifications on the Android app.
Purely because it's tedious to sign in to a website and the app keeps me signed in.
http://web.skype.com totally works, but it's still a website.
Choosing the size of the saved image is buried deep in the settings. Why? Because your friends love getting emails with 50MB base64 encoded attachments, that's why.
You get a discount on most things if you use the app, so I guess use the app?
