Nexus 7 or What?

Apple News

SO all that Apple could manage was a fingerprint scanner and a faster chip. Well I suppose the camera is a bit better too.... Still not impressed enough though to warrant me changing back to the iPhone from my Samsung Galaxy S3.

So tempted to get a Nexus 7

I have nearly pulled the trigger on getting one a couple of times. So many people saying that it is brilliant and well worth getting. Such good kit and great value for money. Even as I am writing this I can feel the tugs on my credit card to have one sent to me. Trouble is, I still love using the iPad and I know that if I get the Nexus I will more likely pick up the smaller lighter and easier to carry around Nexus 7. Would be great to have a device that always will be getting the latest upgrades of Android as soon as they become available.

What do you think? Should I do it?

Draft App for Android

After getting to really like the application on iOS called Drafts I was looking to see if I could find an application on Android that would perform the same purpose. So what I was looking for was an occasion that let me put in text quickly and easily and let me show it out to various places just as easy. It is quite likely that the developer of this Draft for Android has had the idea of copying the ideas and philosophy of this application. Draft isn't as good as the app that is trying to emulate but it is still quite good to use.

You can easily create text documents and markdown documents from within the application or by using a widget. Having the wishes on one of your screens on your device makes it very simple and quick to get into creating your text. This is what you want in a notetaking application.

Sharing out is very easy and it works in two different ways depending upon whether you are the viewing mode editing mode. You are anything you see the option to export as as perfect as HTML.
