BeNote app review

by: Ankit BanerjeeJuly 5, 2012

Ironically, note-taking has evolved from scribbling on paper, to typing on your laptops, to typing on our handheld devices, and coming back full circle to “writing” on our smartphones and tablets using a capacitive stylus.

Google Docs for Android Gets Live Collaborative Editing, Road Warriors Rejoice

by: Bogdan PetrovanFebruary 23, 2012
