The Google Play Store, weighing in with more than 1.4 million apps at last count, is a vast expanse of quality content and APK duds alike. To put this into context, it would take the average user more than 8 days of continuous scrolling to make it through the whole list at two per second, let alone the added months to click through and check out screenshots, or years to separate the wheat from the chaff via thorough review.

Forgot What You Saw In That Place? Go2Note for Android
Lets assume for a second that you like Footprints and love the idea of geolocation pictures and notes. However, as you may already know, without Sense, this will not work. How about if you could get something similar where you could write down notes on places that you have been at. For instance, you just saw a killer bargain and you have nothing to write with and will likely forget where you saw it. If this sounds familiar enough, then you will definitely want to check out what XDA member qubit76 just released. This app will allow you to write notes and attach them to a specific location, much like the aforementioned Sense app. You can add as many notes as you want and come back to them whenever you need to. The app is still in beta stage and you are likely to find a few bugs here and there. However, it is a great way to justify having a gps chip in your device when you don’t drive an awful lot.
The rev is looking for feedback and bugs, so please leave your comments in case you run into issues.
I just released this new app onto the Android Market. At the moment it is still in the beta phase although pretty stable as far as I can see.
The basic concept is make a note of anything and bind it to a location. Use the filter to see which notes are located near you. I will be adding editing and deleting from the notes list in a future release.
You can find more information in the application thread.

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...
