How many times have you been out 'n about and needed a Wi-Fi signal for some reason? That has happened to me more times than I care to count, and whipping out the phone to start up a tether isn't always ideal (not to mention that it burns through carrier-provided data pretty quickly). Enter Karma, a new service that wants to provide everyone with internet, everywhere they go.

This contest is now over.

Though you may not know it from looking at the version number, Todoist - the self-proclaimed "ultimate todo list," - got a sizeable upgrade today to 1.0.4. The update brings with it a bevy of new features, a handful of enhancements, and the promise of a new feature called Karma that's already implemented on seven out of the nine platforms Todoist supports.

Among the new features that did make the cut for Android, however, are widgets, a persistent "quick-add notification," new settings, the ability to complete a task by swiping left, a redesigned task list, and initial support for tablets.

Everyone hates junk mail, right? I'm not talking about spam emails you get in your inbox on a daily basis, which you may not even notice if you're using Gmail.
