It was apparently Global Geekery day yesteday, at least according to Google Play and they listed a couple of their favourite Geeky Apps in an App Focus called Tech Power Tools.
The Tech Power Tools they’ve listed you may or may not have seen before, but when Google thinks they’re worth a look, you may want to at least give them a look. They’ve listed six apps – Hacker’s Keyboard, Tasker, Battery Widget Reborn, NFC Task Launcher, Easy Uninstaller and Terminal IDE.
Out of the six apps, three are free to try and should warrant a look, the other three – Tasker, NFC Task Launcher and Battery Widget Reborn – are paid apps, but I actually own and highly recommend them as worth the outlay. The two I love the most is the combination of Tasker and NFC Task Launcher are particularly good for automating a heap of tasks.
Check them all out in the Tech Power Tools App Focus on Google Play.

LectureNotes (Special Version)
LectureNotes is an Android app for note-taking by handwriting on the screen, in particular with a stylus.
It is designed while having a user at university (or at school) in mind, for instance a lecturer who is using it for preparing her/his lecture or even for actual teaching (by writing on the device and projecting the screen content for the audience) or a student who is using it for taking handwritten notes during a lecture. However, it has found many users outside university, for instance businesspersons who use it for business notes and sales presentations or artists who use it to create sketches and drawings.
