Zoho's Notebook is a free note taking application aiming to replace Evernote

Zoho isn't shy about its new app's target. Right there, at the bottom of Notebook's official product page, is a clear message saying, "Looking for an alternative to Evernote?" There's even a whole page dedicated to comparing side-by-side shots of Notebook and Evernote and telling everyone that although Notebook doesn't have everything now, it's on the right track.

So what exactly does Notebook have? Notebooks, ha! Obvious joke aside, you can create text notes, images, audio notes, and checklists. Then change their main color, group them into notebooks with assigned cover images, reorder them, move them to another notebook, search them, and share them over email or SMS.

Inbox v1.27 prepares to support Gmail's vacation auto-responder [APK Teardown]

Inbox has been growing consistently more feature-rich with a mix of new features designed just for its efficient interface and old features that are slowly integrated from its forefather Gmail. There aren't any obvious signs of new features to play with in this version, but there is something for the teardown archives. With the release of v1.27, evidence shows another classic feature will soon make the jump from Gmail to Inbox: the vacation responder.

Google Calendar v5.5.9 prepares to add conference room scheduling, snoozing reminders, and maybe a new developer API [APK Teardown]

A seemingly minor update to Google Calendar began rolling out earlier today, bumping the version number from 5.5.7 to 5.5.9. There aren't any apparent changes to the interface with this release, but it does come with some interesting things under the covers. A teardown reveals a new feature for the office that will allow people to schedule conference rooms, the return of reminders that can be snoozed, and possibly a "new api" for developers to work with.

[Deal Alert] Grab Carcassonne for 10 cents in France, Spain, Italy, Germany, the UK , and 20 cents in Australia

We often see deals on Carcassonne on the Play Store, but never has the price dropped below the 2 dollars mark. That is until today. Carcassonne is this week's Google Play deal, which means that it's discounted in a couple of countries already. It's down to EUR 0.10 in France, Spain, Italy, and Germany, GBP 0.10 in the UK, and AUD 0.20 in Australia.

Carcassonne usually costs $4.99 or thereabout in the different currencies mentioned above, so this is a significant saving on the original price. Sure, the game is old and some of the recent reviews haven't been very positive, but it's still the famous Carcassonne board game we're talking about here, with its strategic turn-by-turn gameplay and online multiplayer, and which, over the course of its existence on the Play Store, has amassed over 100,000 installs and a 4.3 average rating with more than 12000 reviews.

Weekend poll: are you playing Pokémon GO?

Pokémon GO has become an overnight sensation - probably far exceeding even the expectations of Nintendo America or Niantic. Tens of millions of players are already searching their world for new Pokémon, battling in gyms, and collecting various items to help increase the power of their pocket monsters.

While it's not officially available everywhere yet, you can always sideload the APK from APK Mirror (our APK is completely safe and was taken directly from the Play Store - we aren't shifting shady package files) to get in on the action.

I played for a solid couple of hours today, wandering my neighborhood (which is packed with Pokestops, apparently) and collecting new creatures and several-hundred Poké Balls.

Google provides new Gmail API endpoints for handling filters, forwarding, auto-replies, and more

Google offers the Gmail API to developers as a way to integrate with the email service. What app makers can do with Gmail is limited to the functionality provided in the API. This then limits what we users can do.

Get excited. Google has updated the Gmail API with new endpoints for managing settings.

Video: hands-on with Android apps and the Play Store on Chrome OS

In our latest video, Facundo Holzmeister goes hands-on with Android apps and the Play Store on Chrome OS using the Chromebook Flip. I've used the Flip's Android apps a fair bit now, and I have to say, while the experience is buggy, it does hold a lot of promise. Our video hands-on should give you a better idea of what the whole thing looks and feels like, as well as some of Facundo's thoughts on how things are progressing. For now, things do break, some don't work, and others just feel oddly out of place - but the things that do work often work well, and it's hard not to be excited about the future of Android apps on Chrome OS.

Facebook is testing secret conversations with end-to-end encryption in Messenger

Facebook isn't the first company you think of when privacy comes to mind. Nor is it second, third, or anywhere near the top dozen. It's lucky if it's anywhere on the list at all. But the company does own WhatsApp, the widely used instant messenger that started encrypting all messages earlier this year. Now Facebook is testing out that same encryption in Messenger.
