I know these apps are great for back-to-school and work because I use them everyday, but just in case I do not know about a particular app, please let us know in our forum by following the link below. A lot of productive apps come already on your PlayBook, such as Adobe, Calculator, Docs-to-Go, Calendar and Email. Be sure to take advantage of these apps and others on your PlayBook.
Bluebox offers a great way to share and store files. You can download and launch documents files using Adobe Acrobat or Documents To Go, provided by default, or view images within the application with BlueBox Media Visualizer.
You can also upload files from your tablet to any folder on your DropBox account, browse file system by category and pick up your pictures, voice recordings, notes, or any kind of file you want. Do not have a Dropbox account? Get signed up free with 2GB of space by going Here.
Another cloud storage app called Box provides simple, secure sharing from anywhere – letting you easily store files online, send big files fast, access content on your BlackBerry® PlayBook™, and collaborate with others. Box for BlackBerry PlayBook gives you 50 GB FREE to start off with.
Wikipedia is the free encyclopedia containing more than 20 million articles in 280 languages, and is the most comprehensive and widely used reference work humans have ever compiled.
Periodic Table for BlackBerry PlayBook is an app I do not personally use, but my Daughter finds it very handy in school. Simple and yet useful Periodic Table for BlackBerry PlayBook, displays the entire table on the screen with color coded elements. Get detail information about each element and for more information you can go directly to WikiPedia within the application.
Compose Email for PlayBook I use quite often and find it quick and efficient when sending emails. Compose Email is free and quite easy to use for typing up an email. This app is a simple and quick way to compose emails then send them to the Messages app. The key feature is that it supports the Portrait orientation and keyboard, which the Messages app does not.
Mobile File Host is not available in an app but I do have it bookmarked and use it regularly for saving email attachments and stuff so I can access them anywhere. Pictures, docs, zip files or more are easy to upload with free registration and after upload you get convenient links for sharing with others.
Evernote is a very handy application for keeping track and staying organized. There are tons of ways to use Evernote for your personal and professional life. Here are some ideas:
- For research and class notes
- For client and sales meetings
- To stay in-sync with your desktop notes, web clips, and files
- To snap photos of whiteboards and business cards
- As part of your GTD system to help you stay organized
- To record quick voice memos
Last but not least I probably search Google more times than I can count during the day so I still really enjoy the simplicity of Google Search with Predictive Text on my PlayBook. It simply invokes the browser with your search results but it’s easy to get back to the app for another search. Not dealing with Google’s auto complete and suggested sites is a plus also. Search the Web or Images with this app that works in landscape or portrait.
