While Evernote previously had only a single paid tier, the company says that they were driven to split the service into two paid tiers, Evernote Plus and Evernote Premium, to provide more options for customers.
Another Google app lands in the Play Store, and it just teases a Project Fi future.
We're now a full week out from the announcement of Project Fi, and Google has just put the Project Fi app in the Play Store for us to drool over. And while Google has yet to send out any invitations to use the service, you can now download the Project Fi app to your phone — though there's not much reason to just yet.
For those who like to live on the bleeding edge when it comes to software, Google has announced the Chrome developer channel for Android. It's a seperate install from Chrome (stable) or the Chrome beta channel, and can run along side both or either. Pretty much like the desktop version(s) of Chrome in that regard.
Chrome dev will be a way to try out experimental features and give feedback on them. It will also be much more prone to breakage, and the whole affair will be unpolished and often an unpleasant experience. Just what some of us like!
Samsung's first step into the theming world is a lot of fun, but it needs to open up to the creators of the world ASAP.
Themes are apparently going to be a big deal this year, and with the popularity of the Galaxy lineup you can be sure Samsung's offerings are going to be a big part of that. The Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge launched with a new Theme engine and Theme Store baked right into TouchWiz, and with that comes the ability to make Samsung's frequently whined about UI look like just about anything. It's new, fun, and even though there are some issues with a couple of the themes the platform as a whole seems to work well.
Lets kick the tires together and see what your options are. Whether you're a theming pro or you've just stumbled across the setting on your phone for the first time, there's something here for everyone.
Swiftkey has updated its recently-released Clarity Keyboard Beta today with some fixes for a couple of particularly nasty bugs.

The Toys to Life category of gaming has been growing at an incredible rate over the last two years, and Disney Infinity has been a big part of that. With the release of Disney Infinity 2.0, the game took a turn from clever collectible franchise with a personal design element to an entire universe of mingames and subplots featuring characters from all across the Disney IP. As if it wasn't already cool to have Gamora from Guardians of the Galaxy, Elsa from Frozen, and Vanellope from Wreck-it Ralph all running around the same world on your television, the Toy Box experience has now made its way to Android.
Samsung will happily show you the weather all over the Galaxy S6, but there's no icon in the app drawer.
While you may have a favorite weather app to turn to for what is happening near you, a lot of folks rely on whatever app is handy. For some that means the weather notifications through Google Now are perfect, while others rely on that quick glance baked into their favorite clock widget. Like most Android phones, the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge offers a clock widget with weather built in that pops up as soon as you hit the home screen for the first time. This same weather information is available on the lock screen, as well as the Information Stream on the Galaxy S6 edge. It's powered by Accuweather, and works reasonably well for offering up a quick glance at your current weather.
The only thing missing is the actual app. At least, that's how you'd probably feel if you went looking for this app in your launcher. What you're seeing here is another example of Samsung's integrated apps, which means you've got a couple of options for accessing and using the app to get your weather.
