Google is constantly adding new features to its G Suite line of products to make you more productive. The latest additions comprise of over 60 new languages to the Docs and Slides font catalogs, as well as updates to document copying that allow for comments and suggestions to be transferred over.
Chinese products don't have a great reputation for unique design, whether it be with cars, designer items, or electronics. With this leaked picture (courtesy of VentureBeat, the home of serial leaker @evleaks) of two upcoming Mate 9 models, "Manhattan" and "Long Island," Huawei isn't exactly doing that rep any favors.
It's the little things that can turn into big things that mess up a person's mood. Let's say you're trying to copy and paste an offer that popped up in Google Play Music, but you can't because the app doesn't let you. Retyping all of that information instead qualifies as annoying.
A new app called Universal Copy offers somewhat of a workaround. The app uses Android's built-in Accessibility settings to give you the ability to copy text in apps that otherwise don't let you.
Love the idea of cloud storage providers but don't want to trust your data with the big guys? One more of your options is about to go away. Copy, the cloud storage service from Barracuda, is shutting down on May 1st, 2016.
Copy, the cloud storage solution from Barracuda, just received what the developers call a "massive" update. The key feature is one that might not be immediately obvious: a totally rewritten sync engine, which promises to bring faster load times and more overall smoothness. If you update Copy and feel like everything is just working better, you can probably thank the new sync engine.
The other major addition is native PDF support, which gives it feature parity with competitors like Dropbox and Google Drive. By this I mean that the Copy app can open up your stored PDFs itself, rather than refer you to a third-party app.
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.
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.
The Copy Android app has made the leap to version 3.0, and for the big release, the developers have introduced Chromecast support. With this update, users can stream pictures, music, and video straight from their cloud storage accounts to their televisions.
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.
Old above, new below.
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.
