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.
Those who like the newspapers of yesteryear but who don't appreciate all the paper those require and the ink-stained fingers they cause should check out this app. Press Reader lets you subscribe to favorite newspapers from a vast global library. The papers are presented just like the actual print editions, ads and all, and the app makes it easy to move around the paper. The reading experience in Press Reader is surprisingly similar to that of paper newspapers.
Free, subscriptions to newspapers required (there is a free trial to check it out)
