    Let me say first that computers for me, whether handheld or desktop, are "working tools" not entertainment. I have miles of Outlook contact information and decades of Word and Excel documents. I'm trying to get mobile with these and have just bought a Galaxy Note 3 phone, and a Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet.

    My devices need to talk to each other, and get me where I need to go. Most of my work is "in the field" building things. I have struggled with 3rd party software that gets different devices to communicate, CompanionLink/DejaOffice for Outlook and Docs to Go for Office.

    Just looking around this Android Forum for a few days, I'm a little puzzled at the way discussions are organized. A more orderly index of topics would be helpful some by device (as there are) but some also by genre or topic, such as Google Maps. Actually, I was looking for a forum that exclusively discussed Google Maps. Possibly, I missed it. Is there such?

    Very best regards to anyone who reads this,

    Hello Bill, welcome to the forums at Android Central.

    Samsung devices normally have an app called Polaris Office 5. That's what I use on the field and works pretty good.

    You can also use Quickoffice, I also use it most of the time.

    Welcome to Android Central! As you can imagine, with the multitude of Android devices available from different manufacturers running different versions of Android, it's hard enough to have enough subforums dedicated to a good number of those devices! This site tends to be more device-oriented rather than app-oriented, since that's what most people tend to prefer discussing.

    If you want to discuss particular apps, you can look in one of the subforums here: Stuff for your Android Device - Android Forums at AndroidCentral.com.
    Discussions about specific Android versions here: Android OS Discussion & Help - Android Forums at AndroidCentral.com
    Generally uncategorized discussions here: General Help and How To - Android Forums at AndroidCentral.com

    File organization: Google Drive - This one doubles as cloud storage and syncing across any type of device (Mac, iOS, Windows, ChromeOS, Android and Linux) and has the ability to convert .xlsx or .xls, etc, etc to editable Google Sheets and Google Docs, etc while mobile and convert it back if you want to use MS Office on the desktop. There are two dedicated apps for that editing: Google Docs and Google Sheets. QuickOffice, Polaris and Microsoft Office Mobile are also options for editing on the go although syncing isn't as seamless on those.
