Google Gesture Search app for Android devices that lets you use your phone to handwrite and use gestures than type–now recognize a mix of over 40 languages for quick access to content in an array of languages.
With the update, you can now simply draw a number or letter and access, contacts, applications, bookmarks, settings, music, and more all with the swipe of your finger on the screen.
You can even use transliteration across many languages so you could write [pinyin] for Chinese instead of writing native characters potentially use more strokes. “This also works for other languages where transliteration is used more often,” informs google.
For example, you can write [arhus] for [Århus].
Another Android app, Google Cloud Print, lets you print from any Android device to a Cloud Print-enabled printer, send pictures or document files to other Android devices or save them to Google Drive as PDF files.
You can also track the status of your print jobs.
With Cloud Print for Android you can:
- “Print from any compatible Android device to any Google Cloud Print connected printer
- Share a picture or a document from apps like Gallery directly to Cloud Print
- Track the status of your print jobs.”
To print a file, you can use the “print” button from your Android application and selecting the file you want to print. Make sure you’ve installed a file manager like ES File Explorer or OI File Manager to be able to print other files than images.
Alternately, you can also use the “share” button or menu item on any Android app and select “Cloud Print”. For example, you can open a web page in Chrome for Android, pick “share” from the menu and you can print the entire page. You can also select some text from the page and print the text selection.
If you don’t have a cloud printer, you can still use the app, with Chrome browser installed on your desktop and by enabling the Cloud Print connector.
