Never Use Post It Notes Again Thanks to Pinched Notes for Android
Note taking programs are widely available for Android, but this one that was made by XDA member dego1988 is certainly looking rather appealing. Pinched Notes is a Notes type of application that is really visually appealing. If you have Sense running in your Android device, you may find this app remarkably similar to the Notes Widget. However, as this does not require Sense to run, those who either don’t have it or don’t like it, can now enjoy something similar.
A couple of good features of this app is the lack of ads, as well as the fact that you can send your notifications off to another location via e-mail or via Bluetooth if you are close by to someone who you cannot speak to (for instance, a meeting). The dev needs a hand with a feature that he wants to implement in his app. So, if you have any knowledge on how to integgrate Voice recognition (Speech to Text) to an app, be sure to drop the dev a line or two.
Pinched notes is an application that serves to remind you appointments, activities, and all you want to write.
- Play the note with TTS
- Send to Notification bar
- Send by email or bluetooth
- HD grafics
- APP FREE and AD-FREE.
– Min. ver. Android 1.6

Reports keep iterating over the rumors that Samsung has been trimming down TouchWiz for its upcoming devices. After years of customer complaints, particularly from power users, Samsung seems to finally have taken initiative towards cracking down the stutters that often plague some of its devices, particularly older ones or those that see a long life without clean-ups. But even handsets like the Galaxy S5 managed to be outperformed by low range devices. Android enthusiasts as a whole took disdain in Samsung's...
