Any.DO Brings Simple Task List Management to Android

Feb 27, 2012

For those Android users jealous of Clear on iOS, with its stylish and simple task list functions, be jealous no longer! Any.DO brings stylish, simple task list management with several options beyond what even Clear has. It boasts a simple interface in both light and dark colors – this is one of the most elegantly designed apps on Android, period. Tasks can be organized to be completed today, tomorrow, this week, or the procrastinator’s favorite time: later. It’s easy to either type in or use voice recognition to enter tasks. Tasks can be synced up with Google Tasks, to bring tasks from the web to the app and vice versa. Alerts can be made for tasks, to be reminded to finish those tasks. Notes can be added for the tasks beyond just their titles. When a task is completed, just simply swipe across it to cross it off. Any.DO is available for free from the Android Market, and is completely ad-free.

Google Docs Gets Tablet Support, and Offline Document Sync

Google Docs Gets Tablet Support, and Offline Document Sync

Feb 2, 2012

Google has released an update for their Google Docs app that brings new features to the app. First up is an improved tablet interface; it is similar to the Gmail interface for tablets in that various categories are on the left side, with a list of documents on the right. The other big feature is now that documents can be synced for offline access. By tapping and hodling on a document, it can be selected for offline access. It then syncs to an offline folder, and updates will automatically sync once internet access is restored on the tablet. Offline documents appear to be uneditable, but this could come in handy for reviewing data in spreadsheets, or studying notes typed up on a computer; this would have come in handy when I was in school! The app is still largely just a wrapper for the mobile web version of Google Docs, not a native documents editor, but these features at least make it a compelling download for Android owners who use Google Docs. The update is available now.
