Evernote, Chrome Beta, Falcon Pro, and DashClock All Receive Updates

app updates

The day was filled with app updates for some of our favorite apps, with the biggest probably coming from Evernote. The popular note-taking app received its “most requested feature of all time,” Reminders. Users can finally add reminders to notes, set alarms, and pin notes to the top of note lists, so that their lives can either feel complete or on the verge of becoming complete at all times. The Evernote update also improved copy and paste, corrected photo orders, improved shortcuts, and improved Japanese support.

But like I said, Evernote wasn’t the only app to receive an update. Falcon Pro pushed out multi-account support (was previously in beta), improved the look with a flatter UI, introduced a black theme, added column swiping, and transition animations. It’s a solid update that beta testers have been enjoying for a few days.

Chrome Beta received an update as well, along with DashClock. Neither are significant, but wanted to make you aware.

    Would have been really nice if Evernote didn’t totally hose auto-updating in the process. First noticed that Android home screen widget wasn’t updating when I changed a note on pc and then force-sync’d. Wrote support who had me jump through all sorts of hoops to get it going again (and slipping in a 5.1.1 replacement on just updated 5.1 on one of my reboots) up to de-/re-installing. Nothing has worked on 2 different devices running 2 different versions of the OS (4.2.2 on Google Samsung Galaxy Nexus and 3.2 on Samsung GalTab 10.1 P7500). One device is an anomaly, two devices suggests a pattern, checking w/ Android owning Evernote’er friends suffering same confirms, complete silence from them after sending them extensive documentation suggests a MAJOR PROBLEM!!!! Neither of my devices has updated anything since re-install last night (one set to 15 minutes the other left untouched at 1 hour).

    I really pissed that DashClock doesn’t work on 4.1

    • Steve Benson

      Be less pissed that it doesn’t work on 4.1 and more pissed at the fact that 4.1 doesn’t have the capability.

  • mustbepbs

    Chrome sucks. It’s an embarrassment to Google.

    • EC8CH

      I like the UI and functionality, but it does seem really laggy.

      • mustbepbs

        I do too! I love everything about it, but it’s just such a laggy mess. I mean, their AOSP browser is so much better. I don’t understand why they can’t get Chrome that smooth. Both AOSP and Boat Browser are pretty close to Safari on iPad on smoothness and page loads.

    Well, the new theme for Falcon Pro brought me back to using it from Tweedle. I just didn’t care for the separated boxes look in Falcon Pro, but this new theme is quite nice.

  • tharealoc

    I know I’ll catch some flack for this question, but I’ll ask it anyway. What is special about 4.2 that makes dash clock incompatible with 4.1? Besides the lock screen widgets, I don’t see why us users stuck with 4.1 couldn’t enjoy the awesomeness that is dash clock…

    • michael arazan

      It’s just not built into 4.1, so it can not take advantage of it. If they wanted too, HTC or Samsung could of added it to their skins, but didn’t.

    • Steve Benson

      You might still be able to use DashClock as a homescreen widget, just not as a lockscreen widget.

      You can’t download DashClock from the Play Store if you don’t have a 4.2+ device, but you could download it straight from Roman’s page and sideload it.

      Here: https://code.google.com/p/dashclock/downloads/list

      I can’t guarantee it will work, but it’s worth a shot if you really want it.

      • tharealoc

        no go….kept getting parsing error on install..thanks for the idea though

  • nsnsmj

    If they would just add quick controls to Chrome, I’d stop using the AOSP browser. Just give the option of quick controls and no swiping to switch tabs, with them off, you can swipe to switch tabs. Simple.

    What is the power saver off notification?

  • Silver Veloz

    Is Google Keep basically the same as Evernote?

    • Shane Redman

      I’ve heard Evernote has tons more features, but essentially yes. I use keep. Simple and gets the job done.

      • Silver Veloz

        Also, the fact that I want to utilize as much as I can Google. Integration (or is that Assimilation – LOL)

        • Justin Swanson

          Both! Enjoy it!

    Really liking the black theme in falcon pro.
