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. The “War on Openness” is ironically becoming an open war, where many players are increasing their stakes and scope to try and land a bigger hold - or at the very least, restrict Google’s - on what is the world’s...
Extensive Notes For Android Allows For…. Everything!
Notes taking apps for Android are quite abundant. However, no matter how many we have tried, there are always certain things that are missing from them as we tend to think about these kinds of apps as virtual multitools (Swiss Army knife). Well, from the desk of the creator of one of such apps (Classic Notes), we now have a ridiculously complete note’s taking app for Android devices. XDA member plbelanger brings us Extensive Notes, which has the added advantage of… well, there are far to many to list, but you can virtually do anything with this app. You can add notes with media images, use conversion tools in case you need to jolt down something in a different unit system, you can calculate various values for different things such as electricity, BMI (body mass index), TTS (text to speech), and so many more features that it would me almost pointless for us to try and fit them in a single article. This app was not only conceived with the user in mind, but rather with ALL users in mind.
The dev seems to be fond of this app of his. However, feedback is always important for any dev, so if you decide to take it for a spin (and I recommend you do), please leave your comments, thoughts, or bug reports.
So many features, it’s bordering on insanity.

Smartphone cameras have advanced so tremendously over the past few years that they have almost completely replaced point and shoot digital cameras for the most of us. Furthermore, since our smartphones are always with us, the majority of us end up taking tons of photos throughout the lifespan of our devices. But what happens to all the old photos you take? Do you store them on an external hard-drive or keep them backed up to an online cloud service like Flickr? Let us know what your favorite way of storing old photos is and why.
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...
