I know the dev for Paprika used to post here a couple of years ago. I liked the app well enough but it had some weird Android quirks.

Edit: And it hasn't been updated in a long time.

Updated
January 4, 2015

I use and don't really notice any quirks. However, I've owned it for years and it's been updated maybe 4 times. It's not particularly pretty to look at either, but it does what it's supposed to and I like that you can search all the big recipe sites and import recipes into the app (and you can import recipes from other sites if they are formatted correctly).

I'm guessing that their point for subscriptions is that it's an ongoing payment and they can't guarantee that you'll have credit there next time. Same could be said for your bank account, but whatever.

Pushbullet is $40/year now. I like it a lot, but not for that price.

What were the alternatives? I stopped paying attention after finding Pushbullet.

There's still a free version, what pro features do you need?

Taking action on notifications. So much easier to click something away if I'm at my computer- it doesn't interrupt what I'm doing.

E: I don't mind paying for it, but I can't justify $40/yr to not be slightly annoyed by my phone.

I just started using Paprika which seems to work pretty well. Not sure if it's worth $5 but it hasn't been a bad use of Google funbux. It's also recommended by The Wirecutter who generally seem to know their stuff.

I tossed Paprika out due to the fact that they charge $20 for a PC interface/version. Screw that.

I'm liking Pepperplate, but I'm also trying out One tsp. which isn't really an app, but also does what I want. Both have a nifty bookmarklet that will copy and paste the recipe into your box (assuming the recipe fits the expected code format.) The benefit of One tsp. is that it is completely cross-platform (a webpage) and you can export and backup your recipes to plain text files. I might be leaning toward One tsp just due to the fact that if I get a new device and development stops, I can still be assured of accessing the page.

What are people using for recipe storage? I'd like to put a tablet in my kitchen and get rid of the shelf of cookbooks. Basically, I'm looking for something where I can (ideally) copy and paste into a virtual recipe card and save. If nothing else, I need an app that will allow me to save my recipes, and isn't a collection of Food Network recipes (or whatever.)

I'd imagine this would be a perfect use for either OneNote or Evernote. Bonus being you can futz around with the recipes using the PC client as well.

That's what I use (Evernote), but I keep my stuff very minimalist and I don't store a lot of recipes. There's nothing like adjusting servings or making shopping lists, which I'd imagine other programs could provide.

Maybe better suited for the Android Desktop thread, but I think it fits okay here too. The only icon pack I bother with is Moonshine, but I doubt it ever sees any more additions since it went open source

I've been doing all of this with evernote by simply creating separate "notebooks" so I can separate poo poo as desired.

Yes. Setting your phone to sleep instantly with a relatively short screen timeout.

All security is a matter of tradeoffs...particularly the tradeoff of convenience vs security and AFAIK there is not a non-cloud-based password manager that is as convenient as LastPass.

This is true. I had a subscription to LastPass for a number of years, before they got sold, but got tired of the changes (browser bookmark harvesting, etc), and moved to using various builds of KeePass as a standalone (non-cloud) db that resides across my machines, sync'd to the master on my laptop occasionally.

The android client isn't very fancy, but it has worked reliably, is compatible with the various db formats and encryption types. Apps can be found that run on win/osx/android/linux/iOS and has been problem free, and free.

For icon packs you can't use those with the stock Google launchers can you? I didn't want to spend a buck to try out that Materialistik pack if it turns out I need to install other stuff on top of it, but it is pretty.

No, but you can remotely reset your password or wipe your device using Google Device Manager.

Also I'm pretty sure the situation you're describing is not actually a thing that happens.

Correct. The only icon packs you can use with the stock launcher are the ones from the Line Deco app because they do some funky poo poo with shortcuts, but the ones you get directly from the Play Store require a third-party launcher.

One thing I don't think I could give up about Nova is swipe actions for the dock. So for me on the main dock page I have in order: Phone, Hangouts, App drawer, GMail, and Chrome. But if I swipe up from them, I get Contacts, G+, Settings, a folder for security poo poo (Authy/LastPass), and Something.

You can see how they're related to each other (Phone/Contacts, Chrome/Something) but I don't have to have a million icons everywhere even though they're front and center.

I switched from Authy to that Authenticator Plus mentioned in the OP. It was a Good Decision.

The app is simpler, it encrypts your code database locally and syncs between devices via Dropbox.

I wasn't exactly worried about Authy having my poo poo, but switching to Authenticator Plus cost me no features, a little bit of money, and a few minutes of time. All in all, you gain security for little cost.

If you're still using Google Authenticator, you would gain a lot of convenience with only the most hypothetical decrease in security. (As long as you trust Authenticator Plus to actually encrypt the db and not be harvesting your info)

In Apex, I just got rid of the dock altogether. Never really found the need to have the same shortcuts on multiple screens, especially since I only have two of them

Apex hasn't been updated in months, however. Since we'll before Marshmallow came out. That has me worried...

I don't use Authenticator much (can't decide between it and using SMS), but setting it up on a new phone is a huge PITA. I'm also worried about losing my phone.

Can you just import the db to a new device no problems if you lose your current phone?
