Google Play Music
I listen to music all the time on the Note 2 and the Play Music app is very nice. The big display of the Note 2 makes it a breeze to search through my large music collection which is stored in the Google cloud.
The Google + social network is not for everyone, but those use use it will find the Android app to be best in class. It displays the news feed in an attractive layout the has updates sliding in and out as you swipe down the screen.
It can handle all functions of Google +, including video hangouts which are especially nice on the large screen of the Note 2.
Multi-view on the Note 2
Samsung greatly increased the usefulness of the Note line with the introduction of multi-view. This allows opening two apps at the same time that display side-by-side on the big screen.
Not all apps are multi-view compatible, but the ones shows in the following collection work well with this feature. The slides to come demonstrate how I use multi-view to great effect, including which apps I typically use together on the display.
Multi-view works equally well in both portrait and landscape orientation, but I find the latter to be my preferred method.
