Thanks to the Internet and mobile devices, we live in a world where we get an almost never-ending flow of news available at our fingertips. So much so that now our problem is how to best handle that flood of information rushing towards us. News readers have become not just our source but also our filter and our shield, not just letting us choose the news and topics that we do want while keeping others at bay, they also give a bit of a visual flair to those bits of information, making the reading experience more pleasurable and engaging. Here are our top 5 picks for news readers on Android.
Did you ever wish that your note-taking app on your smartphone or tablet should act like a real-life notebook? If you’re the type who’d like to bridge the digital with how actual journals and notes are like, then chances are you’d like something to that effect.

People are starting to become more conscious of how fragile their easy-to-remember passwords are, but that doesn't mean they're actively taking steps to protect their precious online accounts.

We get that Evernote got here first, and is rightly claiming a majority of the market. Maybe that is why Microsoft is opening itself to suggestions from users as it tests out the Android beta for note-taking and archiving software OneNote, as announced on the Microsoft Office blog yesterday. OneNote has made its way over to Android, but it might not be long before we see a better, stand-alone version of Microsoft’s note-taking app.
Screenshots on your mobile device are easy to do, but can sometimes be difficult to handle. It’s okay if you just occasionally take a screenshot here and there, but if it’s part of your job or you’re just a compulsive screenshot taker, then it becomes harder to find and organise them into folders.
