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.
This office suite is preinstalled on the Galaxy Note 8.0 and it is a solid performer. It is compatible with Microsoft Office documents, although complex formatting may not be handled properly. Basic Word, Excel, and Powerpoint documents are handled fine and the 8-inch tablet is particularly suited for editing.
In addition to the Office document handling, Polaris can also work with PDF files.
