Default Apps for windows tech?

Hey guys,

I'm new to android and I have got a ACER Iconia A500 tablet with honeycomb on it and I'm looking for some apps that can help we with my tech work in public schools.

I'm looking for something that can let me interact with windows share directories either by a share name like (eqmtn0115001) or by IP address and move files back and forth.

I'm all so looking for an app that will let me log jobs or note stuff down.

The third and final is one that will make connecting to a WPA2 Enterprise wifi easier. I have got a tutorial on how to do it but I'd rather have something that feels more natural.

I'm not worried about the price of the apps as long as there worth it.

Thanks guys

To move and copy files (over wifi) between Android and Windows, I use GhostCommander. It's a dual panel file manager, much like Windows Commander on the PC. It's free and it supports SMB.

If you just want to copy files back and forth there are many solutions.

I want to interact directly from Android apps with certain files on my NAS via SMB (in the same manner that I use my SD card) so have just installed CifsManager on my rooted phone. This is an option for you to consider in the future.
