    This will be my first Android, so aside from the obvious (Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, Facebook, ect...) What are your must have apps on your Galaxy Note 8?

    the usual adobe apps are always a must for me, along with Any.do and Cal (wonderful calendar and reminder apps), dropbox, dropsync, sms backup and restore, my cookbook pro, quickpic for my gallery, silent boot, textra, and of course, swiftkey.

    eta - password app and...

    I use pretty much the same apps on both iOS and Android, but there are a couple that I prefer on Android and are on all my phones. The first thing I download is Swiftkey to replace the stock keyboard. I use Allo with my kids as they have iPhones, but love using Allo for messaging. A number of other common apps, but those are the couple that get downloaded first.

    AquaMail to replace regular email (and merge all email accounts to one inbox)
    Nova Launcher (and Nova Prime) to get a more customizable launcher
    Any password app (I use aWallet Cloud Password Manager)
    Swiftkey or Gboard to replace regular keyboard
    Whatsapp so you can send videos (and all MMS) at full resolution

    thanks. I forgot swiftkey. it's so normal for me that I don't even think about it.

    I just tested it, and Whatsapp shows as a sharing option in Live Messages.

    thanks. I meant have you tried it. I'll go do that. I figured I could share to it. getting them to actually go out is another matter.

    +1 For Nova Launcher. There genuinely isnt another launcher that maximises the android platform's user interface as well.

    It's essential for all Android phones IMO.

    tested and seems to be working for me. at least it's an option, if my son is still using it.

    Is it sad that the first app I download is the BlackBerry Hub?
    For the longest time, I refused to leave my BlackBerry behind. I had one until the BB Passport! Then BlackBerry Hub (along wiht other BB apps) came to Android and that's when I made the move to Samsung. I went through 7 and 8, and now have the Note 8. I think I'm gonna stick to the Note series for a long time.
