What's your favorite apps?

I think it's almost required to have a thread like this wherever tablet or smartphone users gather.  Now that a few of the Lenovo tablets are out there, it's time to start one here!

 

So what are your favorite apps?

Re: What's your favorite apps?

I've used the iOS version of Pulse, and it's really nice being able to blend everything together efficiently and attractively.

 

For a good list app, try GroceryIQ.  It comes in different flavors for the different platforms and keeps them all in sync.  I like to prop my tablet up in the kitchen with the app open as I check supplies and then sync it back to my smartphone to carry with me.  You can even email the list to someone else who has a non-supported phone or tablet.  It's the closest thing I found to the old HandyShopper app from the Palm days, and I use it for all kinds of lists from groceries to general shopping to to-dos to packing.

*********Never mind, I just read where it's not supported on WiFi only devices.*****************

 

 

I also like the RSA SecurID software token, but it won't work on the K1. Any chance you have contacts with RSA (EMC) to get this device certified?

Re: What's your favorite apps?

Found a new app that is pretty useful.  It is an easy way to check for apps that are tablet optimized.
