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.

XDA Office Space: Frankenstein’s Perfect IM Client?

The portal’s decentralized XDA office lies in a Hangouts chatroom, where we discuss the latest developments that hit the blogosphere, critique them and figure out what we can do to add a new or original point of view. We came to love this little virtual office, which sees messaging 24/7 due to the international nature of our team. The main problem that we have faced since early on is that Hangouts is not versatile enough for in-depth discussion.   What...
