[Meta] New At AndroidPolice.com - Post Navigation With Keyboard Shortcuts [Updated: New Functionality]

Being a huge fan of keyboard shortcuts (I have most of Gmail's keys memorized and use them exclusively for maximum productivity every day), I jumped at the opportunity to add similar functionality to AndroidPolice.com itself.

On various pages of the site that contain multiple posts, like the homepage, category, author, and tag pages, you can now:

  • press "j" to jump to the next article in the list
  • press "k" to jump to the previous article in the list
  • press "o" or "Enter" to go to the article that's closest to the top of the visible browser area
  • (new) press "O" to do the same as above, except in a new browser tab/window
  • (new) press "c" or "C" on a post page to zoom to the comments box

Furthermore, if you're at the end of a list, pressing "j" will advance to the next page.

Google Drive Update For Android Brings Improved Presentation Viewing, Basic Table Support In Docs, And More

Before I get your hopes up, no they haven't improved spreadsheets yet. However, that is on the way. What is arriving now, though, is the ability to add comments to your documents, view tables, and improved Google presentations viewing support. You'll even get speaker notes and the ability to swipe between slides.

There are more features on their way. Here at Android Police HQ, we've been eagerly awaiting proper spreadsheet editing (which is currently horrible to an unusable degree), and Google has seen fit to name check that very feature in its "More to come..." section.

[Counterpoint] Android Tablets Are Powerfully Versatile Machines, And Don't Try To Tell Me Otherwise

A few days ago, my colleague David Ruddock shared his feelings on Android tablets, why they "suck," and a few suggestions on how they can be improved. At the start of that editorial, he asked the question "how often do you instinctively reach for [your Android tablet], as opposed to your phone or laptop?" Today, I'm going to answer that question from my own personal standpoint, and I'm going to explain why I think Android tablets are actually underrated.

Plug your phone into the lapdock, use its frankly-over-powered processor to run a larger screen with a keyboard and trackpad. Well, that's exactly what the ClamBook does. Only it does it way better.

Tagy Replaces Rows Of App Icons On Your Home Screen With A Tag Cloud, Lets You Know What You Don't Use

One of the nicest things about Android that gets taken for granted is the ability to customize your user interface.
