Tweaked home screens and folders

The user-installed Folder Organizer app provides greater flexibility than the standard Android 4.0 folder function shown above. It lets you create customized folders, app launchers, and bookmarks — each with a customizable image. DeviceGuru’s finished IdeaTab S2100 setup has a single homescreen, comprised of a combination 15 folders, 47 app launchers, and three widgets. The tablet also has a personalized lockscreen.

These screenshots show the tablet’s customized homescreen and the tablet’s pop-up status pane:

Productivity apps

Thanks to its bright, high resolution 10.1-inch screen, the IdeaTab S2110 is well suited for both work and play. This section contains screenshots showing several productivity apps in action on the device. Click each app’s title for further details.
 

Documents to GO — Lenovo currently bundles this app with the IdeaTab S2110.

Office Suite Pro — This office-style app currently costs $15 in the Google Play market, but you might want to download and try the fully-functional 7-day free trial version to check it out before purchasing it. (It has some limitations and flaws.)

QuickOffice Pro HD — Unfortunately, there’s no free-trial version of this $20 office-style app, although with all apps purchased in the Google Android market you can cancel your purchase within 15 minutes for a full refund.



(click thumbnails to enlarge)

Although the version I currently have of Quickoffice Pro (v4.6) lets me insert an image into Word-compatible documents, it does not provide the ability to insert charts into spreadsheets.
 

Kingsoft Office — This office-style app is currently free in Google’s Android market. Like the paid office suites above, Kingsoft Office can be used for creating and editing MS Office-compatible text, spreadsheet, and presentation documents. It offers a wide range of features and capabilities, and at a price that’s hard to resist!

LogMeIn — Currently priced at $25, this useful app lets you access a remote Windows or Mac desktop and in order to run desktop programs on the remote system. In the screenshots below, we’re using the IdeaTab S2110 to create and edit Open Office documents and brows the Web in Firefox on a remote Windows 7 desktop. In the last several screenshots of the group, we transfer a PDF document from the Windows 7 system to DropBox, and then access the PDF via the DropBox app on the S2110.

SketchBook Mobile — This free tool from AutoDesk provides a range of painting and drawing functions. You can create mixed text/graphics images, which can be embedded within presentations or other documents.

Text, voice, and video communications

This section is devoted to two great communications apps: Skype and Google Talk.
 

Skype — The Android Skype app provides text, voice, and video communications. Note that the IdeaTab S2110′s Skype support currently is categorized as uncertified; although we noticed some rough edges, it was still quite usable:

Google Talk — Although less ubiquitous than Skype, Google Talk, which comes preinstalled on the Lenovo tablet, is another great option for text, voice, and video communications:

Google Maps, Earth, & Sky

These three tablet-friendly apps looked great on the IdeaTab S2110′s large, vivid display…
 

Google Maps — The screenshots below show some of what’s available with Google’s Maps app on the S2110. Unfortunately, you can’t use the S2110 for Google’s real-time navigation, since the tablet lacks GPS hardware. However, the app provides the ability to “pre-cache” map regions (see images), so you can refer to them on-the-go at times when Internet access isn’t available.




 

Google Earth — With this app you can be an armchair traveller, touring our planet vicariously…
