I’m not the average college student. In addition to taking 18 credits a semester and working for the greatest company known to man, COED.com, I also am a senior promoter for a local entertainment company, social media specialist for ASU, and a volunteer for the local Boys and Girls club.
That being said, I don’t have time for much. I don’t have time to play games on my phone or casually watch movies. Time is money.
Don’t get me wrong. I’ve still got the average apps that your most basic college kid would have: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, SoundCloud, and so on and so forth but as a young business man I had to keep my focus on work, not just my social life.
Here is my list of top 5 apps for the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 for Entrepreneurs:
1. Microsoft Office:
Microsoft recently released full working version of Microsoft Office. Word, OneNote, PowerPoint, and Excel are all now at the power of your fingertips. Slap on a keyboard and you have yourself a fully usable mobile office. These apps are almost mirrors of the desktop versions and are optimized for tablet use.
2. Google Drive:
While Microsoft Office has its own cloud-based system, the best cloud to use has to be Google Drive. Google drive comes integrated into the Tablet from the start and is easy to use. It also has 15gbs of free cloud storage. You can share documents easily as well as collaborate with team members on projects.
You’re not going to get far with any organization if you’re lacking communication. While there are a multitude of different ways to get in touch with colleagues and team members with texting and phone calls, video conferences allow you to see what team members are working on in real time. This is where Skype comes in handy. It also works well with group video conferences, allowing up to 10 people to be on together at one time
4. Jorte Calendar:
Don’t get me wrong, Google Calendar and the Samsung stock Calendar app are both really great apps, but Jorte is the best. It’s a vey simple app and it does its job just as good as its competition. Where Jorte excels is its ability for customization. Things such as the background image, themes, and color schemes are all customizable within the app. There is also an in-app store which allows you to buy even more themes.
5. Google Keep:
Most people aren’t yet familiar with Google Keep, but that’s their loss. No one’s memory is perfect so whenever you have a brilliant idea, simply enter Google Keep and put it down. Then enter a reminder for when Keep should alert you on your billion dollar idea and go about your day. Don’t have time to write? Keep will transcribe your voice message for you.
When COED and Samsung gave me the opportunity to check out the newest Samsung Galaxy Tablet I jumped on the opportunity. Personally I’m an Apple guy but I’ve been planning on making the switch for a while now. After having it for literally a week I might just make the switch today. If you’ve still got some of that Christmas money left and you’re thinking about getting a tablet, I would absolutely recommend the Galaxy Tab S2.
