Gratis-costing everything to everyone app, Evernote, has increased its usefulness, upping its game from only 100% useful to a whopping Louis Walsh-esque rating of 210%. The note-taking organisational app that lets you sync, save, share, search and edit all the data that clogs up the arteries of your digital life has now had speech recognition software added to make the business of getting your act together even easier.
Tap the microphone icon, get lippy and Evernote will let you record an audio file or, better yet, translate your verbal rambling to text for you. A tremendous boon to those with lazy fingers or shortcomings when it comes to the written word, but sadly there are two pretty much essential criteria you must meet to use it: firstly, it only works with the latest Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and, secondly, because all the hard work is done in the cloud, you have to be online to use it.
Available from Google Play now, if your device fits the bill and you fancy giving up having to stab your finger at a screen constantly just to get your thoughts down, then this is the best option yet.
