Top 10 Galaxy Note Apps
While some apps may feel like an unnatural fit for the behemoth 5.3-inch screen of the Galaxy Note, there are some that complement this Android nicely. Due to its generous 5.3-inch display and special note taking capabilities this device is ideal for business use, and tasks that normally require much scrolling on phones with smaller screens. Here are some to the best apps for the Samsung Galaxy Note.
Documents To Go
One of the reasons people buy a device with this size screen is for the simple reason that they will have a larger display that makes working with Office documents on their mobile less cumbersome. Documents To Go gives you the option of looking at your documents while you are in the waiting room getting ready to go into a meeting, or you’re in transit between clients. The app allows you to create, edit and view Excel, Word, or PowerPoint
documents from your Galaxy Note.
ES File Explorer
This app makes it easier to organize and manage files on your Android much like you do on your desktop. ES File Explorer for Android is a free, all-in-one file manager, application manager, task killer, Dropbox and FTP client.
It is not the best moving watching experience you can have but watching flix from your phone while you wait in line can really help your escape and enjoy the moment; and considering that the phone has a generous 5.3” display you should find the movie watching experience enjoyable.
PocketCloud Remote RDP/VNC
Despite the fact that the Galaxy Note has a pretty large screen, there are times when you may want to connect to a PC in order to access files or programs you can’t otherwise access from your phone. PocketCould is a remote desktop client that allows you to connect to your computer and interact with it as if you were sitting in front of it.
Fill and Sign PDF Forms
An amazing asset to your arsenal of smartphone apps, this one lets you complete and digitally sign documents while you’re on the go. You can then share those forms using Bluetooth, Dropbox, or email. Your digital signature can also be attached to any document sent to your mobile inbox.
This is a professional business card reader and scanner. Use CamCard to take a picture of a business card and the app will recognize the contact information on the card and save it to your Address Book – it is better than carrying around a bunch of cards.
It’s an advantage to have a smartphone that can do as much as the Samsung Galaxy Note,
but that large screen does take a toll on the battery. JuiceDefender extends the Galaxy Note’s battery by turning off or throttling back those resources that aren’t being used. For example, JuiceDefender can be set to automatically turn off the device’s WiFi feature if you aren’t using apps that require network connectivity.
The Samsung Galaxy Note has its own apps that are tailor-made to complement its unique capabilities, however, consumers who are interested in the Galaxy Note normally want apps that not only take text notes but can also attach audio and video as well.
Evernote is one such app that lets you take notes, capture photos, create to-do lists, record voice reminders–and make these notes completely searchable, whether you are at home, at work, or on the go. This app also appears in our roundup of the Best Android Apps for 2012.
