The Latest Evernote Update Brings Relevant Content Suggestions To Your Work With 'Context'

I've been an Evernote user for a long time now. I've watched it grow from a simple way to take and organize notes to a powerful work tool. I've written many reviews in Evernote (for easy cross-device sync), and I don't see that changing any time soon.

Google Has A Six-Line Solution For Developers To Allow Search Queries To Interact With Apps

Months ago, we posted a rumor about "modular actions" set to come to Google's Search app (now just called Google) along with "Ok Google Everywhere" functionality that would allow users to activate search from anywhere on their device.

The popular invite-only contextual launcher Aviate upgraded today from Alpha to Beta. It's still invite-only, but it's definitely worth looking at, as one of the most powerful alpha products I've ever used just got even better. (Did I mention we have an invite code good for 500 invites later in the post?)

dialapp Promises To Guess Who You Want To Call, Enhance Your Call History With 'Magical' Context-Powered List

Dexetra Software, the team behind apps like Iris and Friday, recently brought a new creation to the Play Store with dialapp, a dialer that provides a similar experience to Android's stock dialer, but has one (big) twist: dialapp attempts to guess who you want to call before you even open it.
