Every once in a while, an app comes along with such ingenuity and intuition, that it makes its audience pause and reflect on how integral smartphones have become in our daily lives. The creative app I’m about to share with you is one such app and believe me, it won’t disappoint that headline!

When it comes to the work aspect of life, sending important e-mails, and creating and sharing presentations and memos has never been easier thanks to various applications.
There is no shortage of note-taking applications available on the Google Play Store (you [...]

But the demand for dedicated mobile apps is clearly there, so Microsoft is apparently planning to release its full Office suit for Android and iOS soon.
The news was first reported by BGR, which got a tip from “a reliable source” about Microsoft’s plan to bring Office to a wider audience. Not only is the company planning to make the suite [...]

An application called Auto Start is here to help you in autorestarting your favorite apps in one go. The application is simple to use, as it lets you pick one app that you’d like to be [...]

Google Docs for Android started off as a rather unimpressive app, with severely limited functionality and no support for offline file editing. But lately, Google has begun to pay more attention to the productivity app, adding the most commonly requested feature, offline editing, last month. And now Google Docs for Android gets another important update.
The “killer feature” of the new version is the collaborative editing capability, which was previously available only in the Web version. With the new and improved Google Docs app, you will be able to work on a document or spreadsheet together with a colleague (or more), and see the updates in real time, just like you can on a [...]
