Your ‘Notz’, Anytime, Anywhere

Everyone’s heard of Evernote, the note-taking app that synchronizes your notes with your personal computer, tablet, and phone. However, the one major downfall of such a hefty and bulky application is inevitably its size, taking up 11 precious megabytes of your device’s storage, which is quite a lot for older devices. Now there’s an app called Notz, which hopes to deliver a similar function in a small size.

Coming in a 592 kilobyte package, Notz was developed by XDA Forum Member xdpp, with its main function allowing users to take down notes and syncing them through DropBox with the PC, Android tablets, and phones. The Holo interface is extremely simple and straightforward, with the main screen displaying all the notes and a plus symbol in the top right that create new notes. Pressing a note will allow editing, and long pressing them yields renaming, deletion, and sharing options. Once synced to DropBox, other Android devices with Notz installed can also view, edit, delete, and share notes, and on the PC, notes can be viewed as .txt files.

Xdpp has created a very simple yet useful app that serves the practical function of viewing and taking notes anytime and anywhere. It’s compatible with Android versions 4.0 and newer, and is available for free from the Play store. So if you would like to know more, check out the original thread for more details.

New Snapdragons: Some Context & Contrast

It hasn’t been a good year for Qualcomm so far. Every device featuring the Snapdragon 810 has had a less-than-stellar fate, be it because of overheating complaints or actual decreased sales. HTC is in a particularly worrisome situation, and Sony’s Z4 is slipping down Japanese charts just over a week after its release. The G Flex 2, Mi Note Pro and Z3+ all saw complaints as well. Even MediaTek is seemingly getting an advantage over this.   But a particularly...
