Slacker, a music station streaming platform, has released its latest version for Android this week. With three tiers of service offered, users can select free Slacker Radio, or a $4 or $10 monthly subscription option, offering varying levels of customization. Slacker's app for Android has been entirely revamped to improve user navigation, as well as match its iOS7 counterpart launched last week. Most notable amongst redesign is the new My Vibe feature, which has been added to Slacker's home screen.


My Vibe suggests themed playlists that have been created by Slacker's music curators, to match a certain activity or setting. Free use of Slacker lets users listen to stations of their choosing, with commercial interludes. Slacker Radio Plus, at $4 per month, consists of commercial-free streaming, unlimited song skipping, and customizable stations for offline listening.

Slacker Premium, at $10, additionally includes unlimited on-demand access to Slacker's library, and the ability to freely create and then download (on mobile) one's own playlists. Both subscription versions include live-streaming content from ESPN Radio and ABC News. Slacker for Android can be downloaded for free from Google Play.

Adonit Jot Script Evernote Edition Stylus new tech integrates with Evernote's iPad app

Adonit and Evernote introduced the Jot Script Evernote Edition Stylus with the smallest stylus tip currently available, measured at 1.9mm. Combining new accuracy technology and the Penultimate app -- Evernote's handwriting application -- precise handwritten notes can be created as if one were using a pen on paper. The Jot Script possesses a metal finish with ribbed grip, and is weighted for balance in the hand.

With Bluetooth 4.0, Adonit's stylus interacts with the screen as the tip approaches, with Penultimate's Zoom feature responding by enlarging the writing space for better visual feedback. The digital paper moves as the user writes, simulating the natural feeling of handwriting. Notes created are saved to the Evernote service, can be synced across devices, and are searchable by keyword. The Jot script is powered by a single AAA lithium battery and is available for preorder for $75 online from Evernote and Adonit respectively.
