Upcoming Chrome OS feature puts important files just a click away

Are you tired of hunting for your files? Let's be honest: diving deep into a labyrinth of folders to find essential files is super frustrating. Using the files manager's search function is cumbersome, and, if you're like me, you're probably annoyed how much valuable time is wasted clicking and searching. The developers at Google realized that people care about getting their tasks done efficiently, so they tackled the clicking problem head-on to see if they could limit the number of clicks people make to get to their important files. We finally have an early preview of their solution.

Leaked Gmail redesign outs plans to integrate Docs, Chat, and Meet

Google has only recently announced that it was integrating its video-conferencing service Meet with the Gmail app, a move that was met with some criticism.

10 One UI productivity features you should be using on your Galaxy S20

Every year there seem to be plenty of articles discussing how to make your new Samsung phone feel like a Pixel. I even wrote one, for those of you who do want a Pixel-like experience. I don't necessarily think it's a good idea, however — if you want your phone to be like a Pixel, you should've bought a Pixel in the first place. It also gives the impression that One UI is terrible, or at least worse than stock Android. While some might agree with that, I certainly don't.

Wunderlist creator teases upcoming productivity app named Superlist

Today's the day we say goodbye to Wunderlist, a beloved productivity app for many. The service was bought by Microsoft back in 2015, and the company preferred to replace it with a new app instead of keeping it alive. Sadly, To-Do, the in-house successor, didn't live up to several people's expectations, including myself, who turned to alternative solutions.
