I'm going with the GS3 toolkit one if it's confirmed to work, looks like the perfect solution

Storage This is what I ended up using...

Just got my order in from DealExtreme.

SOURCE; http://dx.com/p/micro-usb-on-the-go-...r-50774?item=1

Paired with; http://dx.com/p/mini-usb-micro-sd-tf...m-color-125517

They sent me a white and black, the white you can see the blue data access led, the black you can't, it lights up internally but won't shine thru. Works great.

I get why you guys want to go as small as possible, but the fact is that you're still going to have a decent sized adapter sticking out the side of your Nexus. Just get the regular OTG cable with a 90 degree bend and use the magnet in the smart cover to attach the usb drive behind it. It's as low profile as you're going to get. I attached pics of my setup.

It's not a reader, it's just a 32gb PNY micro usb drive... I got it on sale for $18 at my local Wal-mart and it has a metal casing which works perfectly with the case magnet.USB flash drives are faster than SD readers on USB 2.0.

I can't post links because I haven't reached 10 posts yet, but you can get the USB drive on Amazon for $20 - PNY Metal USB (P-FDU32G/APPMT-GE) and the 90 degree bend OTG Cable is like .65 cents on Amazon

Thumbs up OTG-USB

This is my setup. I picked up the OTG-USB Cable on eBay for $3.50. Grabbed a USB 3.0 Flash Drive & Installed Stickmount on my Nexus 7. Works perfectly. I mostly use it to hold & watch Movis(.AVI files).

Does anyone of you store apps\app storage on their setup usb connected?

I have a 8GB version and games like NOVA3 (btw, only 0.99$ today) take 2GB of space.
How can you run them from connected USB? I read about LINK2SD but it's not that grreat.
Perhaps symlink'ing...

anyway, i'll be happy to hear your thoughts.

You can't unfortunately. Unless you decompile the game apk and edit some links it has to point to the directory of your usb drive, usually /sdcard/usb storage, but that would be like looking for a needle in a haystack. Plus you will need to re-sign the apk when recompiling. After of course you have secured a copy of the game developer's source code, which you won't get simply by begging.

You can edit voldfstab and run the tablet thinking the usb otg as /sdcard, but having that dangling thing all the time even when not using it seem a lot of hassle.
