And so Google's Evernote competitor has arrived — at least that's what the internet hype machine says.
It's not as full-featured as Evernote, and it doesn't appear to be intended for the heavy Evernote user.
If you are the sort of person that has been making notes in your phone's "Memo" application, and would like to have it stored in Google Drive, then this app could fit the bill. That experience is definitely better than emailing yourself a set of notes because you haven't created an Evernote account. (Stop looking at me like that!)

This is an app I feel sorry for. It has all sorts of nifty features to provide a decent Reader experience on iOS. On March 11, the app was updated to support multiple Google Reader accounts.
A shame that it will only work until July 1.
File this app in the same folder as the previous Phone Rights app: "Good in theory, buggy in practice."
The theory with this app is the ability to share your screen, and even share sound over a wi-fi network.
Where it falls down is in its lack of support for non-Samsung keyboards. Users of Swype and SwiftKey will find themselves stuck on a screen asking them to input a PIN, but with no ability to click "Done".
This is from the same company that wants to become your "life companion". I prefer my companions to be much more open-minded.
