Crowd Favorite To-Do List Astrid Gets A Big Update: Interface Overhaul, Tablet UI, Subtasks And More

Astrid has been one of the most popular To-Do list apps for Android for years. Today it's getting a facelift and a few extra features. Most notably, Astrid now has a spiffy tablet UI. Making use of the Fragments API, Astrid lays out your Lists panel, your individual tasks, and details on each individual task for easy access. Like so:

Simple, straightforward, and easy. The new UI is being added to more than just tablets, though.

Weather And Business Apps The Top Grossing Categories On Android, Games Come In At Number Seven

Each month, Research2Guidance puts out a report on Android Market paid apps, which includes how they stack up against each other. The current state of the Market is somewhat of a surprise, as weather and business apps hold the top two grossing spots, with productivity, media & video, and books & reference rounding out the top five. However, one of the most downloaded categories on the Market - games - doesn't show up on the list until number seven, suggesting users would rather download a free game, rather than pay for one.

Shopping lists. If you're in charge of food for a house with a lot of people, or just like to cook, they are a necessary evil.

[Review] Wunderlist Makes Tasking Look Gooood

I have a couple requirements for any application that wants to help me with organization: it has to have a functional desktop client to sync to. This is nothing against Android's system, but I find that if I have to do any extended typing on it, my enthusiasm for the app fails (coincidentally, along with my time management skills). This is what's kept me from using Astrid with the enthusiasm everyone seems to be talking about; all my time isn't spent on my phone, so why should I leave my tasks there?

[Review] Folder Organizer Brings Deep Customization to Organizing Apps

I've never been a big proponent of using folders on my home screen; I'm the kind of guy that can fit all the apps he uses frequently on a 5x5 grid. With the possible exception for a "Games" folder, I find them pretty useless. I mean, the app drawer itself is one big folder, and if there's anything I really need to access, it goes on my front page.

However, I've been playing around with a tool that's making the maintenance and use of folders a bit more practical.

[Review] Texty Brings Texting To Your Computer Because You're Not Texting Enough Already

If you're anything like me, you text constantly. There are times, however, that I put my phone down and hop on the computer to do some more in-depth tasks or just enjoy some good, old-fashioned big-screen browsing. When I'm doing that, it's usually a pain to receive a text message, have to dig out my phone, open the messaging app, and use a tiny keyboard to reply, even though I'm sitting at a much larger, easier to use keyboard.

Evernote 2.0 Beta Changes Everything For The Better With A Complete Rewrite, Finally Gets Offline Storage

Evernote is one of those services that does one thing and does it extremely well: it takes your notes, organizes them, and helps keep your life together. The beauty of Evernote is that it works everywhere (desktop, web, mobile) but, until recently, the Android app has been a bit... lackluster. It was not just a bit clunky and bland - that we could live with. The biggest downside of the Android client, as noted by countless 1-star reviews, was the need to maintain an Internet connection to read and write notes, meaning the app didn't support offline storage of any kind.

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.
