Google Docs Gets A Facelift

Google Docs Gets A Facelift

More than just looking pretty, Google Docs & Spreadsheets has gotten an organizational facelift.

Now instead of just tagging your documents, you can drag and drop everything into folders. You will also notice anything you’ve tagged previously, is now in a corresponding folder. The Google team have additionally added a Google Suggest-esque seach to your docs – but I’ve, personally, never seen much use in this.

It’s a welcome change to make everything more manageable over there at Google Docs, but nothing really ground breaking. So here are some Google Doc & Spreadsheet shortcuts:

Docs AND Spreadsheets

Shift+Tab = Move to previous cell in table (documents) or row (spreadsheets)

Tab = Move to next cell in table (documents) or row (spreadsheets)

11 Brain Training Apps to Train Your Mind and Improve Memory

Whether at work or at school, people these days are under tremendous pressure to perform, perform and perform! Stress and pressure can have adverse affects on the well-being of a person, and need to be controlled.

Now, this doesn’t mean you make a dash to your nearest therapist. There are a number of wonderful and smart apps that you can use on your phone. These brain training apps have been scientifically designed to target specific areas of the human mind and control harmful emotions such as anxiety, as well as to improve memory and sharpness of the brain.

Here are 11 iPhone apps that you will not only enjoy but also find useful in keeping your mental health balanced at all times.

1. Lumosity

This app consists of games that focus on improving the user’s memory, problem-solving capability, attention span, and thinking. There are three games in each session, and they challenge the brain by changing every time. The user has to complete the games while playing against a clock.
