Science journal

Science Journal is the free digital science journal offered by Google.

Whether you're a science teacher or an enthusiast who cultivates a passion for science at home, you'll be able to keep your notes, photos and observations in one easy-to-browse place. You can use your phone's sensors to measure and graph phenomena such as light, sound and motion, or connect the device to external sensors via Bluetooth to conduct experiments in your surroundings.



The Science Journal app allows you to:
• Measure light, sound, acceleration, air pressure and more using the phone's built-in sensors.
• Take notes and take photos to document your science experiments. Other types of notes will be available soon.
• Connect the device to external sensors via Bluetooth compatible Arduino and Vernier devices.
• Export the recorded sensor data as a CSV file.
• Create automatic triggers to log data and take notes.
• Use sonification to hear the sound of graph movement.

Science Journal is available for free on Android, iPhone, iPad, and compatible Chromebook devices.

Inbox

Your inbox should help you live and work better. On the contrary, it often does not bring out the important things and creates more stress rather than relieving it. Inbox, designed by the Gmail team, helps you keep everything in order and find the things you need.
• HIGHLIGHTS: You can read the most important information without even opening messages. Check in for flights, check the shipping details of your purchases and view friends' photos. It's all in front of your eyes.
• GROUPS: similar messages are grouped so that you can deal with them at once; after that, you can remove them with a simple touch.
• REMINDER: Inbox is not just mail. You can add reminders so that the Inbox contains everything you need to get back to working on.
• POSTPONES: Postpone emails and reminders so they come back when you are ready to deal with them (next week, when you get home or when you want).
• SEARCH: Inbox helps you find exactly what you want, from your next flight to a friend's address, without having to search through messages.
• INTERACTION WITH GMAIL: Inbox was designed by the Gmail team, so your Gmail emails are present here too, with the same reliability and the same spam filters. All your messages are still in Gmail and will stay there forever.
