GBoard – revisited

We had reviewed and recommended GBoard as our first choice for keyboards on Android. Since then, GBoard has gone on improving. As being one of the best keyboards, it now incorporates the following features:

  • Glide Typing – you can type faster by sliding your finger over the characters rather than tapping them individually
  • Voice Typing – You can easily dictate whatever you wish to type – whether it is a message or a mail or even a long essay / letter.
  • Multilingual Typing – You need not switch between languages manually – Gboard will autocorrect and suggest from any of your enabled languages
  • Translate – you can translate as you type on your keyboard
  • Inbuilt Clipboard Manager – this is one of the interesting recent additions to the keyboard – there is an inbuilt clipboard manager which stores upto 5 snippets in the Clipboard. Whatever you copy on your phone, is stored there for upto an hour. And you could re-use it any time within that time frame. If you wish to store a clip beyond the hour limitation, you can pin it and it will remain there forever!
    Truly a versatile keyboard, which includes Emojis, GIFs, Cursor Control and much more! A must have for your Android Device.

Envelope

Many people feel that they spend too much time on their phones and struggle to find a balance with technology. Envelope is an app which temporarily transforms your phone into a simpler, calmer device, helping you take a break away from your digital world.

Once you’ve printed and folded the special pdf into an envelope it will turn your phone into a very basic device which can only make and receive calls helping you focus on what’s in front of you.

Printed buttons which subtly light up allow you to dial and take photographs, creating a calm but magical “Envelope User Interface”.
Not a very popular app, as you may have guessed, since it converts your phone into…… a phone only! But if you are looking for a detox from heavy phone usage – Envelope is just what the doctor ordered!
