It's fun, it's healthy, it's good exercise. The kids will just love it. And we put a little sand inside to make the experience more pleasant.

You know, they say there was a man who jumped from the forty-FIFTH floor? But that's another story...

Within the next few months, or so, I will probably be getting a Samsung Galaxy Tablet from work.

I have never used them or worked with them and am wondering what free apps should I look for that you, my fellow geeks, feel are essential.

Thanks ahead.

Well, just like the iPad to iPhone relationship, it will be able to play any Android phone app you can dream of.

Specifically for the tablet, FBReader and Moon+ Reader are great ebook readers (unless you're specifically getting kindle books, and then obviously you would use the kindle app).

I've found that the calendar and mail widgets that come with Android 3.X are good enough not to look elsewhere.

If you like to make music...

Jasuto.

It is like this:



and/or this:



...on your phone. There is a Reactable (real Reactable in the picture above) app too, but I think Jasuto is a better implementation of the virtual modular synth and seems to respond faster on my processor. I have used Jasuto live and in recorded music a number of times.
