The Blackberry 10 gold SDK release has revealed an interesting tidbit for Evernote partakers: the memory-prodding app seems to be tightly enmeshed with RIM’s upcoming OS. It’s one of the so-called Notebook options listed under the “App Integration” heading, which let you organize “actionable and non-actionable items into separate folders or topics.” Evernote is listed as one of those options, and will let you sync up and access your account with Blackberry 10 devices, according to the documentation.
That app is already available across all other major platforms, letting you organize documents with audio, video, photos, websites and, um, text — then sync everything up in the cloud. Considering Evernote’s recent foray into the business side of things, having the app built-in might be a nice pitch to RIM’s core userbase when the new OS is finally launched.
Twitter and Instagram haven’t been the best of pals lately. After the latter was acquired by Facebook, Instagram quietly pulled the ability to display image previews on Twitter, making people view the images on their own new site.
We knew good and well it was coming, and come it has : Twitter has begun its all-out assault on Instagram (and in turn, Facebook) by including its own set of (free) photo filters. As of now, just the Android version has been updated with the new lenses, but we’re expecting iOS and the rest to follow suit in short order. Much like Flickr did earlier this year, Twitter has tapped Aviary to power all of the company’s filters and effects.
As of now, users will find just eight filters — ranging from “black and white to vintage” — while the grid view enables you to preview how your image would look if any of the eight were applied. You’ll also be able to crop, as well as pinch to zoom in order to focus attention. Moreover, there’s an “auto-enhance” feature that’ll add a little whiz-bang to whatever you managed to snap, and if you’re still struggling to wrap your brain around it, there’s an introductory video waiting just after break. (As well as a (NSFW) video that speaks the truth about all of these filters.)
