But, worry not. Developers have found ways to install and enable the stock ICS keyboard on the Galaxy S3.
Here are the steps you need to do to install the stock Android 4.0 keyboard on your Samsung Galaxy S3 [...]

After pushing the app to version 4.0 back in May, developers have now released Evernote 4.1. That means we’re still a bit behind iOS users, who’ve been enjoying version 4.2.2 for a while, but the gap is closing in fast.
While it does come with a slightly more modest changelog than the update to 4.0 from May, the most recent Evernote tweak is a significant one and will make [...]
