  • Sorry again

    Tempted, really tempted.
    But I have decided a long time ago not to "click thru" on images in order to read articles.
    Almost as bad as articles which are posted as videos with no transcript.

    Besides, I don't own a tablet or a smart phone.
    Laptop/Netbook/Real Cell Phone, land line and fax.

    • Sick of Galleries

      As much as I respect Osborne's work, and the subject definitely interests me, I'm skipping.
      I'm sick to death of these Galleries. I have to click on each one consecutively whether I'm interested in that particular one or not.
      Then scrolling up or down to focus it. Then I have to click back page by page.
      Why not Inline? Then I can peruse by fast scroll, and come back to and concentrate on that of the lot that intrigues me the most.
      I'm on strike. No more backward Galleries for me.

  • spreadsheets

    I use spreadsheets a lot on Android and Kingsoft Office has the best interface and the strongest set of tools for editing. None of the other office suites come close in the spreadsheet department.

  • The straw

    This article is the straw that broke the camel's back.
    It is a pain to go from app to app. Each time there is a tsunami of advertiser's junk flooding the net.
    ZDNet is dead for me as of today.

    • Huh?

      Firefox + AdBlock = No "tsunami of advertiser's junk".

  • I'm puzzled by the selection criteria used...

    I'm comparing this article's choices with the ones in the parallel iDevice article written by the same person and there's very little consistency in direction.

    I think more informative article would be to list the ten most needed business app functions (Office compatibility, PDF reader, etc) and then suggest the best app for that function on Android and iOS (which I suspect will often be the same app)

    Also, WiFi Finder app for Android? This is built into the OS...
