Papyrus -- note-taking app extraordinaire
The Galaxy Note 8.0 is a good tool for taking notes on the fly, especially using the S Pen. Samsung has included a simple note app (S Note) but Papyrus leverages all the benefits of that pen.
Notes can be written naturally using the pen, and Papyrus has features to make it easy. While using the S Pen to write notes, the app makes it possible to erase content using just a fingertip. No need to find the eraser tool in the menu when you make a mistake, all you need to do is rub errors out with a fingertip.
Papyrus recognizes mult-touch gestures, such as pinch/zoom and two-finger scrolling.
This is a news aggregator that lets you configure topics of interest and then builds you an attractive news magazine. The app learns what you like the more you use it and in a short time pulls news and blog posts that appeal to you.
The app's name stems from how News360 works. It pulls multiple sources for a given story to give you a "360 degree" view of the news you liike.
The high-perfomance Note 8.0 runs News 360 smoothly.
Mindjet for Android
You either understand the benefits of mind maps or you don't; if so you should check out Mindjet for Android. This app from the producers of one of the best mindmapping programs ever written, MindManager, is full-featured and works well on the 8-inch screen of the Note 8.0.
The graphical mind maps can use text and graphics in the topic boxes and have links to supporting documents.
Mindjet works with Dropbox to keep your maps in the cloud and can produce MindManager files for use with the desktop verson.
NOTE: I previously used Thinking Space Pro which has "merged" with Mindjet and is no longer available.
