New and fresh Android apps of the week (October 12 issue)
Bring your handwritten notes everywhere you go by snapping a picture of them using Cam note, developed by Active Soft Unlimited (UK). After you snap a shot of your notes, give it a title for easy identification and tag it for organization.
For best results, use the special Cam note notepad so that the app will only scan in your notes and not the background. If you don’t have the special Cam note paper, however, just any type of paper will do. Simply use Manual Mode to capture your notes. You can also upload your notes to Evernote, Dropbox, or Google Drive from your device.
Cam note is available for free from the Google Play Store.
Developers at Chimaerea are here to remind you of the things you need to do. With the ad-free Chm Task List: To Do List Free app, you can punch in your to-dos, categorize them, enter the date they’re due, set their importance, and make sure to show them to you when you need them.
View your tasks for this week or see all your important tasks in another tab. When Start date and time you’ve set are near, the app will buzz to remind you. Some of the misspelled tags, however, such as “Healt” and “Bussines” may need to be fixed.
If you love staying up to date on the latest AOKP releases, Kangerator is the app for you. You no longer need to track your favorite AOKP threads on the XDA Developers forums. Adamthecashew’s Kangerator will keep you up to speed.
Read the change logs on Kangerator the moment they appear on aokp.co and you can choose between AndroidTransfer and goo.im to download the ROM of your choice. You can also enjoy the auto-update checker when you boot your device, daily, when you launch the app or manually.
Kangerator is free but ad-supported. You can disable ads but any money made off the ads goes towards the AOKP server and build box.

Filipinos know that when it rains, it pours. Or, in the case of some really heavy rain, it floods. That’s why the Project NOAH app is a must-have for the Filipino who needs the information that Project NOAH provides on the go. It is also a must-have for travelers to the Philippines who want to keep track of downpours in the archipelago.
Developed by the Department of Science and Technology, the app lets Filipinos and anyone who lives in the flood-prone areas of the Philippines get updates from the weather bureau, Climatex.ph, and PAGASA-FFWS. You can also prepare for typhoons by checking out the Typhoon Forecast. The app includes a list of emergency hotlines. Get Project NOAH for free from the Google Play Store.
