Apps are at the front and center of any smartphone experience, and with over a million apps on the Google Play Store and new apps being submitted to our forums every day, staying up to date on the latest apps and games can be a hassle. At XDA, we don’t discriminate apps - if it’s interesting, innovative, original or useful, we mention them. The XDA Portal Team loves apps too, and we usually share and discuss the latest app releases...
Install Asus Supernote on Any ICS or Later Device
Unlike most other Android device manufacturers, Asus isn’t exactly known for heavily customized interfaces. The company keeps the experience as close to stock Android s possible. That said, the maker has always included several useful apps in its devices that have become the envy of other device users due to their utility and looks. One such app is Supernote, which allows you to easily take and organize rich notes with text, graphics, and freehand drawing.
XDA Senior Member jujuburi shared the APK with us, and it works pretty well on any high-resolution device running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich or later. The app really shines on devices with large screens, and could be a bit cumbersome to use on smaller ones. Though as we mentioned, the screen resolution plays an important part here as well. For instance, the app seemed to render perfectly fine on the 1280 x 720 screen of the Galaxy Nexus, despite not being as usable on our Kindle Fire perhaps due to its lower resolution of 1024 x 600. On large-screen, high-resolution tablets and even large phones / phablets, it should work just fine.
So what are you waiting for? Grab the APK from the forum thread, sideload it to your Android device, and start jotting your notes down.

Instead, Glimpse Notifications will do it for you when a notification comes in. That doesn't mean...
