Have you tried the Tweakker app from the play store?

If you are referring to the 'giffgaffAPN' app, that won't work with Anndroid Jellybean which is used by the Nexus 7. I'm not certain that the 'Tweakker' app will work either, since it sends the settings via SMS which I don't think the Nexus can do.

 

Your best bet would be to create the APN manually.

Try this barzy ... there is no Save button on the nexus 7

ANDROID TAB - Step by Step Guide:
Go to - Settings (MoreSettings).
Wireless & Networks - Mobile Networks
Access Point Names - Tap the MENU key
Select 'New APN'

Type in this information;
Name: giffgaff
APN: giffgaff.com
Username: giffgaff
Password: password

Tap the Back key.
Return to the home screen. Restart your device.
