In Pictures: 18 must-have Android productivity apps

From basic business tasks to advanced automation, these 18 apps will make your Android device more useful than ever

10. Tasks You might not realize it, but Gmail has a list-centric tasks function waiting to be used. From your Android device, an app called Tasks lets you enjoy it in style, providing easy-to-manage lists to keep your to-do items organized. You can set due dates and reminders and check off tasks as they're completed.

Tasks has a minimalist user interface that fits seamlessly into the Android 4.x aesthetic. It includes both home and lock screen widgets, and it syncs continually and automatically with Google's own back end, so your data is always up to date and available regardless of what device or computer you're using.

Tasks costs 99 cents; a free ad-supported version is also available.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
