In order to make use of the bigger form factor the Documents app needs an overhaul. Navigating in PDF files should be improved, highlighting words and adding notes would be cool, too.

Bonus points for being able to edit Open Document texts und spreadsheets :)

That way the Jolla Tablet could be quite useful in work and education environments.

Additionally, making the notes with a stylus (hand writing/drawing) is a must.

For me a tablet is a reading device, so I have other daily use priorities than on a phone. I actually use a Nexus 7 and my main apps are:

  • tt-rss
  • firefox
  • ebook-droid (a pdf reader with djvu support)
  • fbreader
  • some reddit reader

Based on reading tt-rss and hopping to the other apps from there (and hopping back) is my daily use. With ebook-droid I also read djvus because I use djvu for scanning/ocr own documents. On the desktop I use evince which is able to show djvu too (and postscript, and dvi, and text). If I had kde as main desktop I would use okular (this is able to display odf too, and epub, and chm, and tiff, and...)

So I would appreciate an all-format-document reader application based on okular with extra gears on the reader - not only pdf.
