Geoff the Duck Tech: Android Tablets 2012 - What's Useful? (27) Tech: Android Tablets 2012 - What's Useful? 24 Jul 12

Hi All!
Just got a 7" Android Tablet and am trying to decide what I can sensibly use it for.
My main reason for getting it was to use it as a diary for work purposes when on the move. I need to be able to take notes, jot down thoughts, things I would normally have had to do on a desktop when I got home. Most stuff will later be copied to the main computer.

So far I have stuff which came with the tablet which will read a PDF and some formats of e-book. It has Docs-to-go which will edit MS-Office files, so I can get by.

Beyond the essentials, I have looked at what is listed on Google Play (the latest version of their "App Store"). There are endless apps, some free, others to buy. My problem is that there are so many of them, it is difficult to decide which might be worth installing, and which would be a waste of time, or cause problems.

I am starting this thread so we can swap ideas about which applications are the useful ones, and what makes them worth having.

Any thoughts folks?

Geoff the Duck.
