Giving presentations is a regular thing for many business people. Some enjoy presenting on the stage, while others like to craft the presentation. If only you could carry all that presentation material in one place. What if you could take a hand written or audio memo as soon as you come up with an idea, and incorporate it into your presentation? Well, an Android tablet (or iPad) can help you do just that.

Here, we have selected a few apps to help you save time and effort and being more productive using an Android smartphone or tablet.
