    HI everyone!

    New to the android scene - was tied up in the apple universe for a while! I went ahead and downloaded apps that I depended on on my old iPad, but I know there is a lot out there that I am missing for my new Note. I rooted my device, so was wondering if there are any must have apps out there that I should have on my note. I can't tell by the play store what are really good apps versus apps that people just download en masse.

    I guess I can contribute to my own thread ---
    My must haves are
    Inkredible which allow for some beautiful note taking; file management is not important to me, but moving the input area is. A lot of apps have the input area on the bottom of the screen which is awkward to me. The one is adjustable!
    ES file explorer - really clean and somewhat strong file manager
    Stylus beta - spen is more than a novelty to me and this makes that handwriting window much cleaner and more attractive, also recognizes the input much faster
    Battery doctor - since I got it, I have been able to extend my standby time to 3-4 days and my on screen time to 6-7 hours
    Snapseed - I had this on my ipad - easiest and quickest way to edit photos
    Spen board switcher - I have always found the note kind of buggy when switching from keyboard to spen input when the stylus removed; all that has since been resolved with this app. I have it set to switch immediately to my Stylus beta input when spen is removed and it has worked consistently ever since I got it. Love it.

    What are some must download apps on your device?

    Inkcredible? No development.

    I always enjoy this type thread. Seems I find something awesome that I would have never tried each time I read through. So, here is a list of my favorites.

    Onenote (Beta, allows for ink)
    Android Central App (of course)
    Microsoft RD Client
    WiFi Analyzer
    VNC Viewer
    Fing (network scanner)
    ES File Explorer (allows for file server connection)
    Nine (Exchange mail client)
    ADPMobile (job specific)
    ADP Service Connect (job specific)
    Kingsoft Office (although I'm trying out Hancom Office)

    I've had the Note 3 since launch, just got the Note 10.1 2014 a few days ago. What an awesome pair.

    This is a very good thread, I would like to be more popular. I've just bought my first tablet (Samsung Galaxy Tab S) and I would like to know which apps are designed for tablets. I heard that are not so many apps that were re-written special for tablets. Some anyone give more examples with very good apps that I shall install on my tablet.
