Apps I need and why
A lot of the apps I use work together to make my phone more useful, easier to use, give more functionality, connect my user experience across my different devices and aid in making my life more successful. These are by no means all the apps I need and want (that changes every day almost) but another post made me think I should make this thread.
Write & Rotate
Work together to make my note writing easier. Write is like a plained ruled paper and has recognize pen only feature which means I can lay my hand on the screen while I write without problems associated with S-Note. Rotate works with Write to force the Note 2 into reverse portrait mode which moves the buttons to the top of the phone meaning I don't accidentally touch the back home or menu buttons while writing.
Works with the above and other apps to provide a toolbar that gives me one touch access to things like putting the phone in reverse portrait mode and back into auto rotate or landscape with No Screen Off for when I want to have a animated fish tank showing just for looks. Also provides one touch airplane mode and other functions.
3Cats Clock is the only decent clock with seconds showing.
Cool Reader the best e book reader
Encrypted Notepad used to encrypt notes like my list of passwords that works with Android, Windows 7 and Linux.
Firefox provides me with the means to have the same bookmarks on all my devices and platforms while also making my Note 2 web experience like being on a desktop/laptop.
Fora Dictionary works with Cool Reader to lookup words and is also a good stand alone dictionary.
Talkatone is the best (IMO) WiFi phone service and since I carry my WiFi hotspot with me I use it to make my calls.
Hacker's Keyboard is the only keyboard that offers a delete key, control key function and cursor movement keys in one neat package.
No Screen Off works with rotate and my fish tank apps to keep my phone on when I have it in my dock.
Small Text Editor the best simple text editor.
Sticky Notes Widget allows me to have a list of my appointments showing on a transparent background on my home page.
WiFi Transfer Pro transfers files between all my devices and platforms.
Word Web a great dictionary
ES File Explorer the most complete file explorer for free
Air Calc a small calculator that behaves like a floating window working with the multi windows function of the Note 2.
