Pushbullet update brings universal copy and paste

Pushbullet is a messaging app that has been around for a while that allows you to get notifications of phone calls or text messages right on your computer screen so you don’t have to go and get your phone if it is in another room or charging. The app has been updated with some cool new features for the Android platform to version 14.7.

Facebook app testing opening links in built-in browser

Most people who are on Facebook have a love-hate relationship with the hugely popular social network, particularly when it comes to rolling out new features. What the social media giant does is test out new features on a random subset of users before slowly rolling it out to the public. So if you’re one of the “lucky” ones to run into this new functionality on the Android app, you’ll notice that opening links within now leads you to a built-in web browser rather than your smartphone’s default browser.

OneNote now supports handwriting, better tablet experience

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. While other apps like Evernote and S-Note (for Samsung) have had that feature for some time now, Microsoft’s OneNote has finally caught up with them in their latest update, which features handwriting support and a redesigned user interface for tablets.

Snapshot activates camera of Android phones from locked screen

You are walking through a scenic park in Florence, Italy, when suddenly, you see some birds flocking beautifully together in the plaza. You take your Android phone out, unlock it, open your camera, but it takes forever to do so.

A new app called Snapshot is promising that this situation will never happen again as it will remove a few of those steps necessary to opening your smartphone’s camera.
