Google Keep, Meet Your Contender Got-It
The vast majority of us are aware of Google’s new note taking app for Android, Google Keep. Fitting in with their recent design trends, it features Holo aesthetics, while keeping the interface tastefully minimal and intuitive. Now, XDA Recognized Contributor Mirko ddd has developed an app called Got-It, which offers his own take.
Got-It presents itself with a clean interface, consisting of user-created notes, a drop-down menu of lists or notebooks, and a simplistic bar at the bottom allowing for the search, the creation of notes, and list options. Creating a note is familiar and straightforward, with inputs for a title and the actual note and the ability to set a due date as well as reminders. Notes can be crossed out with the simple tick of a check box, while long pressing allows users to copy and share notes through the share intent system. Got-It also supports synchronization with Google Tasks, as well as an extensive amount of customization in settings.
There is widget support as well. Users can define what the widget will display, and how information is sorted. This is accomplished by due date, last modified, ascending or descending order, and more. There is also support for Dashclock.
All in all, Got-It is an extremely well designed and polished note taking app that is fluid and intuitive in operation. By switching Google’s take on note taking up a bit, and coming in lighter, Mirko ddd may have developed a serious contender to Keep. It is compatible with Android versions 4.0.3 and newer, and can be downloaded for free. So if this interests you, check out the original thread for more details.

Each year, smartphone makers attempt to one-up each other in features and specs, but time and again these improvements feel incremental rather than revolutionary. Samsung hopes to break this trend with a new hardware and software design philosophy, and press details of the new-and-improved cameras shared by the S6 and S6 Edge show that they are off to a great start. Once you get past the curved displays and wraparound Gorilla Glass 4, the most striking feature on these slabs is the...
