Sherlock, shortcuts, and accolades: A round-up of news from Kanda
We know it’s been a long winter, so in the spirit of spring rejuvenation, we want to offer you a couple of gifts to help unclutter your mind and make your smart phone even smarter.
First, Kanda has just released 2Click Instant Launch for Android. 2Click is a small but brilliant app that instantly launches your favorite app — or calls a phone number when you double-click the power button.

Forget about unlocking your phone, looking for that icon on the crowded screen and tapping. With 2Click, just double-click on your device’s power button and you are in! You can even call your favorite number instantly simply by double-clicking on the power button.
|You decide which app to run: Facebook, Evernote, Instagram, Google Maps, or your phone dialer.|

Start thinking like a Mastermind
From the mind of a former Kanda employee comes the ebook, “MasterMind: How to Think Like Sherlock Holmes.” Like many Kanda employees, Maria Konnikova, has a passion for knowledge – having been educated at Harvard and Columbia. We like to think that she picked up many of her insights while helping us develop world-class software. Whatever the case, we are proud of Maria, and hope that you check her book out. The first 100 people to request a copy will get a free copy.
We’ve also launched a new Web site to help provide an easier way to find the software development resources you are looking for. Please take a look and let us know what you think!
