Evernote, one of the most popular note apps for Android, got an update to version 3.2 recently, bringing integration with Skitch, offline search capability and a handful of other features that make it a huge step up from previous versions.

Skitch was recently acquired by Evernote, and brings a fun/useful doodle annotation functionality to the app, allowing the user to switch between apps editing the same note with the touch of an icon.

Something that I love about the Android development community is that developers are always looking for the newest thing to beef up current devices. The case of HTC's Sense 3.5 is no different. The newest iteration of HTC's overlay was obtained from a dump belonging the HTC Bliss, a yet-to-be-released phone that will come with Sense 3.5 baked in. Ostensibly a split-second later, Senior XDA developer Evokings got 3.5-based ROM to the EVO 4G.

Geodog GmbH are the developers of Geodog Mobile, a new application for Android that helps the user track their lost dog via GPS by connecting with a separately-sold tracking collar. The app will track location, display topographical maps, and even provide street directions to reach your wandering pet. Another interesting feature is the ability to save maps for offline viewing, meaning no data connection is required if your dog is lost within a map that you've already saved.

Remember back in May of last year when we reported on the AR.Drone at Google I/O? The Drone is no doubt an impressive gadget, and even more impressive is the fact that it can be controlled via an app for your Android handset.

The makers of the AR.Drone have finally released the Drone's controller app to the market (for free), simultaneously with a special SDK allowing users to "create new applications dedicated to the AR.Drone on the Android platform."

The app connects to the quadricopter via Wi-Fi and allows complete control of the peripheral right from the screen of your device.

Samsung's Galaxy Tab 7.7 seemed like a promising tablet when announced at IFA, despite the fact that it was evidently not headed for the U.S. Those hoping to get their hands on the device however will be interested to learn that the 7.7 has disappeared from IFA altogether. All that is left of the device's display is a drab curtain and velvet rope.

The latest news has come in the form of an official statement from Samsung, sent to thedroidguy indicating that the removal of the 7.7 from IFA did in fact have to do with a court decision made on September 2nd.

Yesterday, we announced Sentinel 3: Homeworld by Origin8 which hit the Android market as the third game in a very popular tower defense series, and the first installment to be available for Android. Normally I am not too excited about games of this genre, but I can honestly say that Sentinel 3 has impressed me both in terms of gameplay experience and sheer visual interest, thanks to the cleanly styled environments, visual effects, and smooth animation.
