Android and openness is something we talk about all the time, but the recent developments in the industry point towards inherent flaws with this very premise. Be it from bloggers, political institutions or corporations, Android is seemingly not open enough.

Enjoy Copy And Paste The Way It Is Meant To Be With “Everywhere Clipboard” for Android
One of the beauties of our computers in general is that they can use the most useful tool in history: the ability to C&P (copy and paste). Bringing this kind of functionality has been a problematic ordeal for mobile devices since the time of Windows Mobile. Well, it seems that as time goes by things tend to get better and this was demonstrated by XDA member jerryfan2000, who just released “Everywhere Clipboard” for Android. Anyone who does any kind of writing on their Android devices will have to agree that C&P simply sucks. With this new app, you can copy text from any app in your device and it will save it in a clipboard, much like Microsoft Office does. This clipboard can then be brought up on top of any program or app, select the text that you would like to paste, and done! There is not even the need to leave your current app to do this.
The app is still under development, but if you feel like testing it, please leave some feedback and suggestions.
Everywhere Clipboard extends Android clipboard function and brings real desktop clipboard experience to you on mobile phone. Everywhere Clipboard is a Windows Office style clipboard panel which records copied items into a history stack.

Before the release of Android 5.0 Lollipop, the Holo Design guidelines served as the official reference for Android design, right from IceCream Sandwich to KitKat. However, updates to the guidelines were few and far between, leading to a lack of synchronization between Android design and current UI/UX trends. Google seems to have learned from their mistake the last time around, and earlier this week, a significant update was released for the Material Design guidelines, marking the second revision in less...
