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)
Using the Galaxy Note 8.0 is a better experience if you have a good wi-fi network. This utility scans all networks in the area and graphically presents them to make it easy to find one with the greatest strength and less traffic.
