Best word processing app for kids school work?

Friday 22nd of June 2012 /
I offered to buy my 9yr old son a laptop, but he was pretty firm he wanted a samsung galaxy 2 tab 10" w/ bluetooth keyboard.....OK. Now, for the essays he's going to have to eventually write in future school years -- is there a solid word processor reasonable for child academics available on the tab? I looked through most of the office suite options and they were either way too simple or too complicated....main requirements being a complete but simple user interface, spell and grammer check, integration w/ google docs/drive, able to use network printer directly, and export to non ms-office formats. I found Kingsoft office which I'm tentatively having my son use. The builtin polaris office suite was not usable due to "hard to figure out how to use properly, minimal integration, and couldn't find spell or grammer check functionality." Anyone already solved this?

KeyCase Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 Keyboard Case review

Wednesday 13th of June 2012 /
Looking to add a bit of functionality and protection to your Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1?  Take a peek at KeyCase’s Keyboard Case which features a faux leather cover and integrated Bluetooth keyboard.  Why bother putting your tablet in a case and carrying around a wireless keyboard when you can have both in one accessory?The silicone keys, which are soft and responsive, are about the same size you’d find on a standard netbook.  And, unlike a traditional Bluetooth keyboard, the dedicated Android keys put your most oft-used functions a tap away.  You’ll find buttons for HOME, LOCK, SEARCH, VOICE, VOLUME, BACK, and more.The keyboard charges via microUSB and promises to hold 100 hours of standby time, however I’ve not paid that close of attention.  I simply charge it up whenever I am charging the tablet and don’t think twice.  In terms of use, KeyCase indicates up to 90 hours of typing but, again, I don’t count how much time I spend in front of the tablet.  To save battery juice, the keyboard will automatically turn off after 10 minutes of inactivi

Galaxy Tab 10.1 + Bluetooth keyboard

Monday 18th of July 2011 /
I've tried 2 bluetooth keyboards with the 10.1 tab. Both of them works. However, the onscreen soft keyboard won't go away when the Bluetooth keyboard is connected. Before, when I use the bluetooth keyboard with the Xoom, it has an option to disable on-screen ketyboard. Does anybody know how can I do that with the Tab 10.1 ? It's annoying to show tot on-screen keybaord occupy half the screen real estate while using an external keyboard.

Android custom keyboard shortcuts

Sunday 22nd of January 2012 /
I have a galaxy tab 10.1 connected (by Bluetooth) to a hardware keyboard. What I couldn't figure out was how to use custom shortcuts to do specific task the same way I do it on my pc.For instance, say I type Ctrl+e on the keyboard, then the application menu will be opened.I searched the android market, xda-developers site, stackoveflow and the net for an answer but couldn't find an answer. I did not even find out if rooting was required for this :(Does anyone know how to do this?

Screen Turns Gray in Some Forums

Saturday 29th of June 2013 /
Hello,I use a Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 GT-P5113. I also use a Logitech Bluetooth keyboard with it.On some forums (not this one), when I try to type something into a window (field), after the first letter, the screen goes gray, except for the window I typed into. I haven't figured out a way to recover what's on the screen once that happens. So, effectively, I cannot interact with some forums.Does anyone have any thoughts on why this happens? And how to fix it?Bill
