Productivity

What would a portable computer be without the ability to take your office, projects or reading with you? It's a shame so many of the good office suites are retail only. Thankfully, there are enough free apps to give you several alternatives, in order to remain productive.

Kingsoft Office

Finally! This is a free full-featured office suite for Android. It took long enough for someone to offer one and this is no slouch. With spreadsheet, word processing and presentation apps that are compatible with MS formats, among others. It also offers direct access to several cloud storage services. This is a fantastic suite!

Monthly Calendar Widget

Unfortunately, the Google Calendar Widget only gives you your appointments. I wanted a full month calendar on my tablet, which isn't available without installing GoLauncher or similar apps. Unfortunately, the tablet version of GoLauncher isn't very useful, so this simple app is a suitable replacement, until something else comes along.

Paperdroid

This is another of those apps you can't find directly on the market: http://slideme.org/application/paperdroid. It's a ReadItLater client with a clean interface. It has the singular purpose of being an offline reader and nothing more.

Spell Checker + Voice

Since typing is virtually impossible on mobile devices, until you get used to it, you'll need a spell-checker in addition to your Android's adaptive keyboard. What's really neat about this one is tthat you can even dictate words by voice.
