Android And PC Cross-Device Clipboard Syncing Coming Soon To Pushbullet

The Pushbullet folks crank new functionality into their nifty push notification app so often that it would almost be more newsworthy if they stopped, but until that day comes, here's another cool feature that we're happy to see in the works. The ability to copy and paste across Android and Windows machines recently made an appearance in the beta version of the app, and a screenshot found its way to Google+.

From the image we can see that the feature will require users to have Pushbullet installed on both their PC and their Android phone or tablet. After users enable the functionality on both platforms, content copied to their clipboard should become immediately available across both devices.

[New App] Diigo's Copy Bubble Is Basically Link Bubble, But For Copying/Pasting And Managing Your Clipboard

I don't know about you, but when I first experienced Facebook chat heads, I wanted bubbles for all the things. Paranoid Android's Halo offered this, but it didn't do anything for people with unrooted devices. So when Chris Lacy later released Link Bubble, a web browser that creates a floating bubble every time you click on a link, my desire started to look less like a pipe dream. Now developer Diigo has released Copy Bubble, a floating clipboard that fits in rather well with the aforementioned apps.

The app's single bubble floats along the edge of the screen and displays how many items you've copied to it.

Barracuda's Copy Cloud Storage App Gets A User Interface Facelift

If you're a cloud storage junkie and you haven't checked out Copy, shame on you. It's your typical Dropbox/Google Drive/Skydrive/Box.net competitor with a twist: shared files and folders can be assigned to a single user so that they don't count against the data storage limit for other users. The previous version of the app wasn't exactly up on the latest visual design trends, but now Copy has a much cleaner look.

The app still has basically the same features: individual users get the access to all their cloud storage files, synced to desktops running Windows, OS X, or Linux.

FolderSync Updated To v2.5 With Hamburger Navigation, New Layouts, Expandable Notifications, And Copy.com Support

Cloud storage providers like Dropbox, SugarSync, and Google Drive all have free apps available in the Play Store, but none of these sync up with folders saved on your Android device's internal memory the way their desktop clients do. For that functionality, look no further than FolderSync. This aptly named app can sync folders with over ten different cloud storage services, and version 2.5 adds another option, Copy.com, to the list. This latest update also rolls out a tweaked UI, one that comes complete with a hamburger navigation drawer. Other areas of the app have also seen a UI refresh.

Notifications are now expandable, and in addition to Copy.com, version 2.5 also rolls out support for various WebDAV providers.

Tip: Drive's Latest Update Adds Global 'Copy To Clipboard' Option In The Share Menu

When Google Drive was updated yesterday with the new native spreadsheet editor, all other aspects of the update were instantly less interesting. Now that the dust has settled and our excitement for the new editor has become more manageable, there's another nifty feature worth highlighting: the new "copy to clipboard" choice in the global share menu.

Now, when you choose to share something via the built-in option in any application, you will see an option for "copy to clipboard" - it was actually a little confusing where this new addition came from initially, but Ron notices every detail that exists in everything and immediately knew it was thanks to the Drive update.

Apple Publishes A Statement On Its UK Website Saying That Samsung Did Not Copy The iPad, But Only Because Their Products Aren't As Cool As Ours

After months of media hype and courtroom battles, Samsung was finally ordered to pay Apple $1.05 billion by a U.S. court a couple of months ago, for infringing the company's design patents. On the other side of the pond, however, things haven't been quite as clear cut, with a UK judge ordering Apple to publish ads stating that Samsung did not copy the iPad at all.

Today, Apple has posted a statement on its UK website saying just that, but its PR team has also taken the opportunity to say a few more words about Samsung as well.

After noting that "the Galaxy Tab 10.1, Tab 8.9 and Tab 7.7 do not infringe Apple’s registered design No.

UK Judge Orders Apple To Publicly State On Its Website That Samsung Didn't Copy The iPad

Well, that certainly didn't go the way Apple would've liked. A UK judge presiding over one of many lawsuits involving Apple products—specifically concerning the Galaxy Tab line's alleged infringement of the iPad's design—has ordered Apple to publicly post on the UK version of its website that Samsung did not copy the iPad. Said the internet, "Oh, snap!"

The UK judge presiding over the case was the same one who made headlines recently for saying the Galaxy Tab lineup was "not as cool" as the iPad, and thus unlikely to be confused for Apple's slates. It's really hard to imagine an outcome that could be less flattering to both sides.

Keep Your Clipboard History A Long-Press Away With ClipStore And Button Shortcut

Maybe you're like me: you don't find Voice Search all that useful; you have an impenetrably foreign, non-Google-approved accent; you find yourself frustrated by the single-entry nature of Android's traditional clipboard.

If you deem yourself a match with any of those things, I'm willing to bet you find at least one of the two applications on show here of use.

ClipStore

Android's clipboard isn't anything special. You put stuff there and it disappears when you overwrite it with something else. ClipStore is a nice twist on that, offering the ability to save your previous clipboard entries, pin entries, add entries manually, and re-copy old entries.

Love Yourself Some Plants Vs Zombies On Your Android Device? Leave Devil Alone Is A Very Decent Clone That Just Hit The Market

Plants Vs Zombies

I loved Plants Vs Zombies on my PC. LOVED it. I don't get excited by games much anymore but Plants Vs Zombies by PopCap captured my full attention for weeks when it just came out a couple of years back. A version for the iPhone came out later and enjoyed similar success to the original game. PopCap's Android page, however, has been quite empty. Literally:

Will PopCap ever release an Android variant? It's possible, but in the meantime, we have to quench our PvZ thirst by finding existing alternatives in the Market.

Leave Devil Alone

A few days ago, a new game called Leave Devil Alone by a relatively unknown publisher GZORZ showed up in the new releases section of the Android Market.
