I have Sky Demon on the previous generation Nexus 7. I used it for the first time at the weekend, in a PA28.
I couldn't see anywhere to fix a holder so I used in on my lap in a case.
The first thing to say is this is a whole new world if you've not used this kind of device before. The weather was hazy and the terrain of Lincolnshire and Norfolk is not easy to follow on a map. Use SD, and it's dead easy to get to where you want and locate little fields difficult to pick out from the air.
Note the planned heading from the log, take-off and then align the projected flight path with your intended route and set the heading bug. Then relax and enjoy the countryside.
I planned the trip on the PC and downloaded via the Cloud facility. I printed out all the stuff first, just in case. As a result I didn't do anything sophisticated in the air - just arrive downwind at both destinations. In both cases and I didn't follow the planned routes rigidly - doing a diversion along the coast. plus skirt a few ATZs to avoid unnecessary chatter.
In this context the whole thing worked just fine and is entirely readable in the cockpit.
