    I'm looking for a few indispensable apps I was used to on iOS, and I would appreciate if you could give me your suggestions about their best suited Android equivalents. The apps are listed below, including some of the features I found most important:

    - Good Reader (a great e-book reader, all major formats, Dropbox sync)
    - Scanner Pro (a portable "scanner" for documents; on-screen grid to help you align the camera; setting the page borders after the scan has been taken to make the final page/document aligned correctly; saving to separate image files as well as a combined PDF file)
    - FileBrowser (connecting to LAN (Windows/SAMBA shares) and browsing/opening files directly)
    - Buzz Player (connecting to LAN (Windows/SAMBA shares) and playing multimedia files directly from there)

    Answering to myself and to any other netizens who might be looking for this...

    -For GoodReader equivalent, I chose Aldiko Book Reader (free). So far so good.
    -Turned out I don't need anything like FileBrowser and Buzz Player... With ES File Explorer file manager (also free) I can connect to LAN (or even Dropbox) shares, and I can launch whatever image/video viewer I want from there (or any other file for that matter). Yay!
    -As for Scanner Pro, I'm still looking...

    I really like Camscanner. Free version works good but has some limits. Pro version is $5 or so.

    Thanks, I'll have a look into Camscanner.
    As for Things, I haven't gotten that far yet. I still have to figure out whether the stock calendar app's tasks will suffice.

    My favorite to do app is Tasks. It is simple, customizable and backs up to Google tasks.
