Description

Charm is a mobile character map. If you need aparticular Unicode character quickly, just open Charm, type part ofthe character's name, and tap the character card. It will be copiedto the clipboard and you can go back to what you were doing.

It's really useful with a shortcut to launch it from anywhere,but it works just fine without.

It works for maths symbols, foreign letters, obscurepunctuation, snowman (for some reason) and many emoji. You have toknow the correct Unicode name at first, but you can put your ownname in once you've found it.

If you use a symbol a lot, or manually tell Charm to prioritiseit, it will always appear at the top of any search that matches it.You can also 'downvote' symbols that annoy you.

The web version is free, but slower and can be data-heavy onmobile. Try it at http://www.andrewt.net/charm
Renaming and priority features require Honeycomb or later.

I use Quiver, the OSX note-taking app(http://happenapps.com/#quiver) and wanted a way to read my noteson my phone. This app does that, as well as creating and editingnotes, and is stand-alone so Quiver for OSX is no longer requiredto use Quaver.Supports:- formatting, including HTML and Markdown cells- code cells with syntax highlighting- full display of LaTeX cells (with https://www.mathjax.org)- display and import of images- tagging, including renaming and deleting tags- create and follow links between notes- links to the web- custom CSS- creating new notebooks and notes- sharing note and cell contents to other apps- creating notes from the share menu- searching by keyword or #tagLike Quiver for OSX, you are in charge of figuring out how to syncthe notebooks across your devices. I use Pocket Git(http://pocketgit.com).

Puzzle Monkey Crossword Player 1.2.2 APK
Andrew Taylor
Puzzle Monkey allows you to photograph a crossword puzzle (orsudoku), and fill it in on your phone or tablet. You can also takeextra photos (or enter text) to record the clues.It's most usefulwhen:* One person wants to do cryptic clues and another wants to doquick clues, but there's only one grid.* You want to take thecrossword but leave the newspaper.* You forgot your pen.Includes a'Number Puzzle' mode, for sudoku, which makes the numeric keyboardappear instead of the normal one.The app is designed for deviceswith cameras on the back — if your device has a camera on the frontthen you might find it hard to take good photos.
3Doku - 3D Sudoku 3.0 APK
Andrew Taylor
3Doku is a 3D puzzle game — a sudoku wrapped around a cube.Fit thenumbers 1-16 onto each face of the cube, and each 'row' and'column' — but rows and columns wrap around the cube to formloops.There are a few "3D sudoku" variants, with names like'sudokube' and 'quboku', but most of them are just 2D sudokusstacked up or placed edge-to-edge (or, in one case, a Rubik's Cubewith numbers drawn on). 3Doku is one puzzle on one cube. It mighttake a minute to wrap your head around it, but once you do it's assimple and elegant as the 2D version (with all the frustratingcomplexity that brings).Includes a hint system in case you getstuck — but the hints are based on what you have so far, so ifyou've already messed up then the hint will just help you getfurther along the wrong path...The app can generate puzzles in 4difficulty levels, but has 100 pre-generated ones at each level sothat slow devices don't have to wait.

Astro Checklists 1.0.1 APK
Andrew Taylor
Nasa use checklists to make sure spacecraft launches and the likego off without a hitch. I always forget my toothbrush or my phonecharger when I pack a bag.This app lets you create repeatable to-dolists for common tasks — packing a bag, making a chilli, setting upa new computer — then run through the list many times, so everytime you do that task, you remember everything.First, create achecklist — this is a common task like "pack a bag". Then,"start" the checklist (with the triangular "play" icon). You canenter a name for this specific run-through, for example "pack forholiday" — and then "pack for home" the week after. This way,everything you pack on the way out, you'll pack on the way hometoo!
Sharepad 2.0.1 APK
Andrew Taylor
Sharepad is designed so you can quickly take notes in meetings orconversations without worrying about which app to open or creatinga document.It's more-or-less just a text box and a share button.It's designed to open instantly and let you start typing a note.When you've finished, hit share, and then figure out whether youwant to put your new note in Evernote, or Keep, or send it as anemail or an SMS or what. The note will still be in Sharepad so youcan send it to more than one app or change your mind as much as youwant.You can also share text TO Sharepad — this is useful, forexample, when sharing to WhatsApp. WhatsApp doesn't let you modifytext shared to it before sending it, but if you send it viaSharepad then you can.It's quite handy when combined with AutoShareand Tasker, too._____Header image uses elements from CMS (datatransfer device).jpg, by Thomas Guignard (Flickr) [CC BY-SA 2.0(http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/2.0)], via WikimediaCommons
