Google Now on Tap, a one-time cool but limited party trick, is sure turning into the useful service we all hoped (and sort of envisioned) it could be come. The latest wave of new features to hit the in-the-moment search service includes the ability to translate text from any screen, discover new content in a new Discover mode, and quickly find out information about products by scanning barcodes and QR codes.

This morning, Google officially unveiled the name of Android N as Android Nougat, but this afternoon, they put a number to it as well. The next version of Android is Android 7.0.
That new number shouldn’t really shock anyone, since Google basically told us last year to expect a new version each year. We knew that meant a new name, but was anyone sold on their being a full digit jump each year? I don’t know! Either way, Android Nougat is Android 7.0 whether we were ready for it or not. (more…)
A couple of weeks ago, we pointed out a new section in Google Play that showed you a list of apps you were currently beta testing, noting that it was only just beginning to rollout to users. Today (or maybe even last night), the full rollout started and you more than likely have the new section, whether you realized it or not.

Google revealed the name of Android N today and that name is Nougat. Android Nougat, to be exact. There has been fallout on some level. Nerds seem to be unhappy with the choice, probably because it wasn’t called “Nerds” or “Neapolitan” or “Nutella.” You only think I’m joking about that – I’m not.

The official name for Android N is Android Nougat! (more…)
Seriously, today. It’s happening.gif. (more…)
Big user of Evernote? Hopefully, for your sake, you either pay for their premium tiers or you don’t use it on more than two devices. Why do I say that? Because this week, Evernote announced that its free tier, otherwise known as Evernote Basic, will start limiting users to access on just two devices. They are also adjusting Plus and Premium price tiers for new subscribers.
Evernote penned a pretty straight forward blog post to touch on each of these topics, saying that exactly what you expected them to say – they’d rather not do this, but keeping this best-in-class note app updated and innovative going forward costs money. (more…)
Google tells us that it is pushing an update to Google Keep today, the note-taking app that has slowly become a polished, semi-powerful option for those looking to keep track of ideas and lists. We are also seeing an Inbox update that appears to have an updated changelog on Google Play, if you can believe that. (more…)
