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.

Should You Get Wear? Wearer’s Practical Observations

Wear is said to not offer enough for mass adoption, even though its been in the market for over 9 months. I personally have a Gear Live which I purchased 8 months ago, and my experience with it has had its ups and downs throughout my time with it. For the longest time, I was not able to recommend the platform to anyone. Since then, a lot of updates have hit Wear watches, some improving battery life, others changing the...
