Default Just purchased the Note 8.0...looking for some advice on what I should do with it

First and foremost, I'm debating whether to install a custom ROM on it. I have an S3 running Carbon on it (I can't stand Touchwiz...it angers me to no end) and I'm curious whether there's any crucial features that I will lose on the Note 8 if I ROM it.

I recently started a Post Grad program after a few years of being out of school and first and foremost this will be a note taking/E-Textbook device (back in my day, we had to carry multiple 10 pound text books in our back packs...man kids got it good these days!). Which leads me to my next question: what apps would you guys recommend for that? I already have Papyrus installed (haven't used it yet though), but is there anything else worth checking out? Also, are there any particular ROM's or Launchers that are more geared towards a device like this (Pen capabilities and all).

Thanks in advance

Hi. Note 8 is great device as it is. I would reccomend to stay with touchwiz and original Rom as many custom roms have broken s-pen functionality. Try to update it to newest version - thats all. As for Note talking build in app are top notch IMHO. You have two complete solution - just spend time to learn one of them as they surpass papyrus greatly as a complete solution not only to create but also to manage notes.

Thanks! That Simple Mind app will be very useful for group work at school.

I just stumbled upon this app and I must say it's amazing. Only in beta, but it's a godsend.
