Default [Q] New Note 10.1-14 User of about 2 weeks and extremely happy with it

Coming from an Asus TF201 Transformer Prime, my new Samsung Note 10.1-14 is a miracle. Everything works wonderful, and I can do several things at once!

I'm confused about the purpose of the Knox apps. Is that basically a secure area inside of the normal OS that can be used to isolate certain activities from the rest of the tablet?

I just used it to set up my corporate email Exchange Activesync. This thing has absolutely absurd security requirements, but do those only apply while I'm inside KNOX? For instance, the Activesync is allowed to perform a factory reset on my device. If that happens, will it truly wipe the whole thing or just the Knox app area?

And how do I get more applications within Knox? I've already purchased OfficeSuite Pro 7 previously, but I can't seem to get to it from within Knox.

Any clarification on the purpose of Knox is much appreciated!

Just wanted to let you know im coming from the tf201 too and i completely understand what you mean like day and night.
I don't really have answers for your knox questions though, I thouht Knox is judt a hardware encrypted container for important files. But I'm sure someone will have an answer for you!

I think the Knox apps are available in the Samsung store only so won't necessarily register anything you have bought through the play store.

Think of KNOX as a separate and distinct instance of Android running alongside the primary version. Only apps with the KNOX logo (little gold colored key hole in the lower right corner) can be used in KNOX mode. KNOX apps don't show on the personal partition and vice versa. While in KNOX there's a KNOX Apps icon that lists what apps are available for use in the KNOX partition. If they have a price you have to re-buy them even if you're already using them in your personal partition.

I use KNOX but more as a repository for data I wouldn't want multiple clients to accidentally see should they be using my tablet. A lot of people use it for their porn stash, probably not what Samsung created it for.

Here's more detail on KNOX...
