Samsung Galaxy Tab Apps to Capture Your Thoughts With

By Dan Gookin

When you are on the go with your Samsung Galaxy Tab, it is handy to have some tools to capture your thoughts while you are out and about. Otherwise, you may forget them by the time you get back to home base. Here are a couple of apps that can help you do just that.

AK Notepad

One program that the Galaxy Tab is missing out of the box is a notepad. A good choice for an app to fill that void is AK Notepad: You can type or dictate short messages and memos, which is very handy.

For example, before you make a visit to the grocery store, make (dictate) a list of items you need by using AK Notepad. It is also handy to keep some important items as notes, such as frequent flyer numbers, family member’s clothing size, and other important notes you might need handy but not cluttering your brain.

Perhaps the most important note you can make is one containing your contact information. A note labeled In Case You Find This Tablet on your Tab can contain information about you in case you ever lose your gizmo and someone is decent enough to search it for your information.

Voice Recorder

The Galaxy Tab can record your voice or other sounds, and the Voice Recorder is a good app for performing this task. It has an elegant and simple interface: Touch the big Record button to start recording. Make a note for yourself or record a friend doing his Daffy Duck impression.

Previous recordings are stored in a list on the Voice Recorder’s main screen. Each recording is shown with its title, the date and time of the recording, and the recording duration.
