In Pictures: 10 Android apps developers will love

From full-blown IDEs to essential resource utilities, these Android apps bring powerful programming features to phones and tablets

Pocket Cloud Pocket Cloud lets you run applications and access files on remote Windows or Mac computers from anywhere. I use it from my Nexus 7 tablet and my iPad, to connect to my Windows box and my iMac. The Pro version supports VMware, connections to multiple computers, and advanced RDP features.

What differentiates Pocket Cloud from many Android RDP/ VNC apps is that it can get through firewalls if an agent is running on the remote computer, and perform autodiscovery of your computers by logging into PocketCloud with your Google credentials. It works well over Wi-Fi and over 4G. I've made connections over 3G, but performance wasn't good enough for extended use.

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.
