It is done. This year’s Android players have now all shown their hand. With the shopping and holiday seasons fast approaching, it’s also time to make a decision on which of these phones to get.

Evernote open source alternatives Part 3: Joplin

Evernote open source alternatives Part 3: Joplin

It will probably be a long while before Evernote disappears if it does at all. And it will also be some time before any open source software will be able to fill in those extra large shoes. Some alternatives, like Turtl, just stick to the bare minimum while others like Standard Notes try to find sustainability by offering features as part of a paid subscription. Joplin takes a rather different approach. In order to provide a note-taking interface and experience that matches or even surpasses Evernote, it mostly offloads one functionality to others: synchronization.

Evernote open source alternatives Part 2: Standard Notes [UPDATED]

Some people fear that the Evernote ship has too many holes and too few crew members to stay afloat. Others have already started their exodus, looking for comparable services. While there’s no shortage of that, there’s something to be said for open source solutions that have the higher chance of surviving bankruptcy, hacks, and governments. Last time we took a look at Turtl, which turned out to be more of a Google Keep Notes alternative than an Evernote replacement. Now we try Standard Notes for a spin which places an even heavier emphasis on privacy and longevity.

Evernote open source alternatives Part 1: Turtl

Evernote, considered one of Silicon Valley’s unicorns, recently released its first major update in years. While templates have definitely been a much-requested feature, it is one that the community has long found ways around. And before that, Evernote made a big splash about redesigning its logo. These two events have caused many Evernote users to review the company’s recent history, the sustainability of its business, and possible alternatives. Now while there is no shortage of Evernote replacements out there, users may want to consider some from the open source world. In this three part series, we present such options, starting with the simplest one of all: Turtl.

Best Android apps for writing your next novel

It’s that time of year again when people try to dust off their creative brains, put on their imaginative caps, and try to write a 50,000-word novel in 30 days. Some brave souls commit to writing their NaNoWriMo baby by hand. Most try to retain their sanity during an already insane month by tapping away on a laptop or desktop. However, you can never really predict when the Muse will whisper in your ear, on your commute, while waiting in line, or any other place where you might have your Android smartphone in hand. For those unexpected moments of inspiration, or if you really just prefer working on your phone or tablet, you’ll want to keep one or a few of these apps on your home screen.

If what you really want is a dedicated people hauler or family vehicle, nothing comes close to the versatile nature of a proper minivan.

2018 Mazda6 vs 2019 Ford Fusion vs 2019 Subaru Legacy: Midsize Sedan Showdown

This is going to be an interesting battle. The 2018 Mazda6 is fresh from a major facelift for the current model year. I personally love this car. I think it’s the best-looking midsize sedan in the market today, apart from the fact it is gifted with an athletic demeanor. However, I also like the 2019 Ford Fusion. This is not because it still resembles an Aston Martin at first glance, but it remains a true driver’s car while still remaining civilized for the daily drive.
