It's only taken six years, but the popular project management tool Trello -- which was recently acquired by Atlassian -- today launched its desktop apps for Mac and Windows. Until now, Trello only lived in the browser and while it worked really well, it also meant that it never quite felt integrated into any workflow that wasn't browser-based.

Now, Trello users will get all of the usual features they know from the browser, with the added ability to get native desktop notifications and add cards from anywhere thanks to support for plenty of keyboard shortcuts, for example -- and you can do all of that without being tempted to surf over to Facebook when you're done. If you're using an Apple laptop with the Touch Bar, then will also be able to use that to create new cards and open boards in a new window with just a tap.

Gmail finally turns addresses and phone numbers into links

  Gmail finally turns addresses and phone numbers into links Next time someone emails you an address, you no longer have to copypaste it on Maps after viewing it on Gmail or Inbox. Addresses and phone numbers will appear as hyperlinks whether you're using Android and iOS on mobile or the web on your computer. You won't be able to make calls, but you can launch Google Maps and start a new email on your PC with a single click. We've tested the feature and can confirm that it's now active, but if it doesn't work for you yet, don't worry: Google says it could take up to three days to roll it out completely.

Users of the service have been asking for an official desktop app for a while now, and that’s finally coming soon. If you are on a Mac, you can get Trello ’s desktop app right now. And if you are on Windows 10, you will have to wait until tomorrow.

Google's quest to bring Google Now over to its desktop Chrome browser has been years in the making, but today it's finally official. Xiaomi's bezel-free Mi Mix 2 is coming on September 11th.

Why did it take the company so long to launch these desktop apps? "The desktop app has been on our roadmap and something we've wanted to do, but as a scrappy startup we couldn't do everything at once so we decided to focus on making our mobile and web experiences great for our users," Trello co-founder and CEO Michael Pryor told me. "Now under Atlassian, we have the resources to bring things to market faster and can deliver some of our most exciting features yet, like the desktop app."

There's now a new visual representation of the boards and cards that you attach to a Trello card, for example, that clearly shows that the attachment is indeed a card or board (and not just some link). That'll make it easier to track cards from across multiple boards on a personal to-do list board, for example.

The 50 Free Apps We're Most Thankful For

  The 50 Free Apps We're Most Thankful For There is not shortage of free mobile and desktop applications available on the internet.

Given that Atlassian launched its Stride Slack-competitor last week, it doesn't come as a surprise that Trello is getting some integrations with Stride now, too. Specifically, this means that you can now start Stride audio and video conferences right from within Trello so you can instantly start a conference call with all Trello board members without having to shift between different applications.

Trello is also making it easier to embed cards in apps like Bitbucket, Dropbox Paper, appear.in, Confluence Cloud and other applications.

YouTube brings playback speed choices to mobile .
The ability to choose playback speeds on YouTube can be pretty valuable. You can use it, say, whenever you need to see what's going on in a tutorial in slow motion or just want to speed watch a random vlog. Now the feature has finally made its way to the platform's iOS and Android apps, so you don't have to fire up your laptop just so you can slow down or speed up what you're watching. In his announcement post, YouTube Software Engineer Pallavi Powale said they had to overcome some engineering hurdles to make the update happen. They had to make sure that the app can change the duration of the audio without affecting its quality.
