Narrate : A Material Design inspired Note Taking app for Android

Narrate is a diary/journal/notes app that has adopted the new Material design guidelines. The app looks great due to material design touches in the UI and the in-app animations.


The app’s home screen has a floating button to quickly jot down a note or write a journal. Each note has title followed by the note body itself. A date and time stamp is automatically added to the note  but you can edit them later by tapping on the respective fields. Notes are sorted by their date and you can ‘favorite’ a note either from the edit screen or when you have the note open for reading.
Narrate has a built in calendar that lets you add notes to any day by tapping it or by tapping the plus button at the top right. The calendar view is a great way to browse notes/journals by month where the days with notes/journals are highlighted by small dots below the day.


Narrate also has a security feature where you can set a passcode lock to secure your notes and journals from nosey users. 

Upgrading to the pro or premium version of the app will cost you $2.99. The added features in the premium version are

  • Sync to Dropbox
  • Sync with Day One

Other future features lined up for the premium version are :

  • Sync to Google Drive
  • Early access to beta versions
You can also get Narrate Pro for free by referring 3 of your friends to download the Narrate app. You’ll get a refer link to share and when 3 people download Narrate using that link, pro features will be activated for you for free.

Personally, this is hands down the best looking notes app I've tried. But the only disappointing thing is that, it doesn’t provide syncing feature in the free version. Most of the other note taking apps at least have a syncing feature in the free version. That being said, go give it a try people, you might likeit.

Download Narrate (Journal/Diary/Notes) from Google Play

Stay High on Android. Peace !!!

Gnome Extensions I Use To Enhance My Desktop Usage

I am currently running Fedora 22 with Gnome 3.16 . One of the best features of GNOME are shell extensions. These extensions bring all sorts of handy features to GNOME. Installing and using GNOME extensions couldn't be any simpler. Simply browse over and look for the extension that appeals to you. Click the switch from Off to On, and immediately you're prompted to install it. That's it.

Here are the extensions that I use to personalize my Fedora 22 experience and maximize my performance. Hopefully they can make you enjoy your Gnome Desktop experience.

1. Activities Configurator

It can be used to configure the activities button and Top panel appearance.

2. Alternate Tab

GNOME Shell’s default Alt-Tab behavior groups windows into a single application icon and shows applications from all workspaces. This extension substitutes Alt-Tab with a window based switcher that does not group by applicati…

Meet elementary OS Freya : A fast, lightweight and beautiful replacement for OS X and Windows

My favorite Linux distribution - elementary OS has released a new stable version named elementary OS Freya. After being under development for a 1 year and a half, its finally here and it’s now even more polished, clean, beautiful with great new features and three new default apps.

elementary OS is a Linux distribution based on Ubuntu and the latest release Freya is based on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. Being based on Ubuntu doesn't mean that elementary OS is just a skinned version of Ubuntu. It features it's own shell named Pantheon Shell and comes with its own set of custom apps and many unique features. One of ther perks of being based on Ubuntu is that elementary OS users can benefit from the large number of repositories and apps available on Ubuntu platform.
According to elementary OS team, their previous release named elementary Luna (released on August 2013) was downloaded more than 3 million times and the interesting fact is that, 60% of those downloads were from non- free OSes. …
