Interview with the creators of Notebloc, the only Spanish app on Google Play Pass

Notebloc is an application to scan and share documents, it is also the only Spanish app in Google Play Pass. We interview their creators.

Notebloc is a highly successful application in the Google Play Store that has been developed in Barcelona and is currently the only Spanish app that is selected for Play Pass , Google’s application and game subscription service. The developers contacted us to tell us about their application and how was the selection process for Google Play Pass; So we arranged an interview to talk about development, Android and whatever came up.

This application to capture documents thanks to the camera, and convert it into a digital medium suitable for sharing and editing, was created by two members, Maria Trullàs and Bente Malmberg , to cover a need: to ensure that university students could easily transfer their written notes to the mobile and computer Notebloc began as a physical notebook that students were given at selected universities in Barcelona for free and with advertising. Given the success of the notebook, they developed a compatible app; which ended up being the current Notebloc that millions of Android and iOS users have freely downloaded to their phones.

We meet Maria Trullàs for the interview. It is a Tuesday afternoon in Barcelona, ​​with a gray sky and a fresh atmosphere due to the torrential rains of only a few hours ago. Around some coffees, Maria answers our questions about Notebloc .

How did you come up with the idea of ​​combining mobile software with a physical format like the notebook?

We came up with our desire to always put the users of our products at the center of all our decisions.

From Notebloc we started our activity being an advertising medium, also called Notebloc, for students. This was (and is) a notebook that more than 150,000 university students receive at the beginning of the course, free of charge since inside there is advertising from different companies and brands with interest in this target. In each of these notebooks we include a survey and ask directly to those who receive it how to improve the notebook. After receiving thousands and thousands of responses from students, as well as analyzing the way they take notes and study, we decided to create the Notebloc app: a scanning and document organization app made in “image and likeness” of what that students need, an app that connects the analog world (paper) with digital, and based 100% on all this feedback we receive year after year.

Did you look at any precedent? (A similar concept comes to mind, LiveScribe)

The truth is, no. While we obviously know of other initiatives and products available in the market that also connect paper or handwriting and technology, we would not have opted for it without this in-depth analysis of the answers we get through these surveys we do.

What I liked the first time we used the Notebloc application is that you left the door open for anyone to scan their documents, not just those that have one of your notebooks. Was it a difficult decision to make or did you think from the beginning make a universal application?

The decision also came from our users and their needs. As I told you in the first question, we started our activity by giving notebooks to students. Each student receives a notebook per academic year. In 2015, when we launched the Notebloc app, it was linked to some markers on each sheet. These markers were detected by the app, and then the image was processed.

What happened was that this notebook comes a day that ends and the student has to continue taking notes with other papers or notebooks, other brands. Many of these students got used to using the Notebloc app to digitize, organize and share their notes, and they started asking us for two things: first, more notebooks; and secondly, to be able to digitize other media other than Notebloc since, for example, a student receives photocopies from the teacher during a class, or wants to take a photo of the board and attach it in their notes, etc.

At that time we made two decisions:

  • The first, we decided to “unlock” the app and thus not leave any student “lying”, without being able to continue using the Notebloc; By the way with that unlocking, everyone could scan blackboards, or books, or photocopies, or whatever it was necessary to digitize.
  • The second decision was to produce Notebloc notebooks without advertising and open an online store ( www.notebloc-shop.com ) so that everyone who wanted them could buy them.

They are innovative notebooks, not only because of the app, but because they come printed with a special grid, which we call “inverted grid”. This grid, in which the lines are white on a very faint gray background, makes when you scan these sheets with the Notebloc app the grid disappears. The same happens if you make a photocopy of a Notebloc paper: the grid is not in the photocopy. You will only see what you have written or drawn on the paper, on a completely white background.

Ah! This grid printed upside down also saw the light thanks to student feedback. (Maria smiles)

The Notebloc app is free. Does the freemium model compensate you as developers?

As I mentioned in the previous question, Notebloc notebooks with advertising are also free. We were born as a free product, with advertising, so we don’t know anything else. We can not compare, the truth, between being a 100% paid app or a free app with advertising. So I guess it does compensate us.

What approximate percentage of users of the application also buys the books?

It is a higher percentage than we expected but less than we aspire (smile) . By company policy, I cannot provide data on the percentage of conversion of app users to notebook sales.

Google publishers have highlighted the Notebloc app. Have you had a boost in downloads and positive ratings?

Yes, any recognition of a job well done impacts positively, and much more when it comes from Google itself. That said, at the same time, such recognition implies an extra responsibility for our users. If an app that is not Google Editors’ Choice already expects it to work and do what it has to do, they still expect it more than one that is.

Scanning documents using the Notebloc app and notebook

How is the process for Google to highlight an app? Or simply woke up one morning with that distinction?

We woke up one morning with this distinction. We have never done anything, either with the app or with Notebloc notebooks, thinking about the recognition of anyone other than our present and future users. So we did nothing, directly, to get this distinction. Indirectly I suppose so: this almost obsession in doing the best for those who use your products I suppose that, in part, it is what will have made Google discover our app and include it in its selection of publishers.

(Maria highlights the fact that her company does not carry out promotions or any action in order to win users. She is a constant in the interview: she is grateful for the impact of Notebloc, also surprised by it)

Your ratio of positive comments is very high, an average of 4.7 stars. Do you spend a lot of time supporting the application?

Continuing with the idea of ​​putting the user at the center of everything and being consistent with it, we always try to give an effective response (I mean, not simply answer by answering) to everyone who writes us with ideas, suggestions, doubts, criticisms constructive, etc. I do not know if it is a long or short time, I would say that it is necessary to achieve this goal.

What comments have surprised you the most?

I think that more than surprise us, there are comments that excite us a lot (like when someone tells you that you have the best app of all Google Play and that if I could give you 10 stars instead of 5), others that make you put the batteries to develop new features (in plan: I put you 4 stars and when you develop xoy, I will give you the fifth), others that worry you (like when someone experiences an error in the app that you did not know so far and you have no idea if you can fix it fast way), etc.

Notebloc is the only Spanish application that is included in the Google Play Pass subscription service. How was that selection process?

The selection process by Google really do not know how it was. That is, we do not know with what criteria Google decided to invite and include certain apps in Google Play Pass.

We received an email, will do 4 or 5 months, in which Google told us that they were developing a new project, which today we all know as the app subscription service called Google Play Pass, in which they wanted to invite our Notebloc app.

We trust Google a lot and it was a great honor for us to receive this email with this invitation. So we do not hesitate to move forward with the proposal.

(Conversing with Maria about Play Pass, we are surprised by the limited information that the developers included in this service have. Maria emphasizes that they have no record of how many downloads Notebloc has achieved through the subscription service, nor do they have any statistics on the developers console or have received data on how much each download monetizes. And a curiosity: the developers of Notebloc can not even see how their application is displayed on Google Play Pass since they lack access to the subscription service because they are in Spain)

Do you rent as developers leave the freemium model in exchange for receiving the percentage of Google Play Pass?

The freemium model has not changed, at least for Notebloc. The app follows its previous model, with the only difference that there is now a new way, apart from buying the Pro version, to enjoy it without advertising, which is precisely through this new Google service.

Subscription services exist in many other industries, with audiovisual content probably being the most consolidated. Let’s take the example of a movie: one can decide to watch a movie on a free consumer television channel like La Sexta or whatever channel and, therefore, watch the movie with cuts for advertising; or you may decide to pay X money for acquiring a copy of this movie; Or you can pay a monthly subscription and watch this same movie or others while the subscription fees are paid monthly.

In the app industry, the introduction of this model is really recent, so we don’t know very well what will happen. Honestly, I cannot make estimates of how many users will decide to become customers of this type of services, nor what they will mean at the level of revenue for developers. For now it is difficult to venture to say that one model or another will be more profitable or not.

Do you consider developing any other application? What would you like to include apart from what Notebloc already has?

At the moment we are totally focused on Notebloc: to continue developing functionalities (right now we are working on the automatic synchronization of documents with Google Drive, which we will launch shortly) and to continue making it always the best for present and future users who want to scan , organize and share your documents in an easy, agile, reliable and secure way.

What we would like to include in the app is always linked to what our users want us to include. They decide.

How to cancel subscriptions in the Google Play Store

With the rise of subscriptions, many developers take advantage of them. Do you want to avoid being overcharged? So you can cancel them.

In the Google Play Store the applications and paid games never abounded since those of this system never went to spend money on software; hence the freemium model has proliferated: ads and purchases in the application. And within that model there is a growing trend that is becoming increasingly relevant: subscriptions .

In general, it is logical to subscribe to services such as Netflix , Spotify or YouTube Premium as they offer us access to content in exchange for a monthly payment; there are applications that allow you to unlock tools at the cost of paying a subscription; and there are apps that seek to subscribe the user without realizing it in order to charge him every month , often in a way that is not too transparent.

Applications that include a subscription service usually give a few days of testing so that anyone can know whether or not they are interested in the added services. And of course, as they are not canceled before the end of the test, Google Play will charge us the stipulated cost of the subscription . But don’t worry: it’s easy to cancel at any time in a simple way.

Access the subscription section of Google Play and discover all the ones you have active, you can also cancel them

Cómo cancelar suscripciones en la Google Play Store

Any subscription will establish a period of time after which the Google Play Store will charge you the amount indicated by the developer. There are monthly, quarterly, semi-annual and annual subscriptions ; with different test periods depending on what the person creating the app wants to establish. In this trial period you will not be charged any cent, so you can unsubscribe at any time (we recommend that you cancel the subscription as soon as you start it ) and enjoy the services until the first planned payment. The same happens if they already charged you: if you cancel the subscription you will continue to enjoy it until the end.

Let’s get to the point: how to cancel subscriptions on Android? The method is the following:

  • Open the Google Play Store.
  • Swipe the left side menu and click on the Subscriptions option.
  • You will see the subscriptions you have active: you should check it frequently.
  • Click on the subscription you want to unsubscribe: the message Cancel subscription appears below.
  • As we noted, the canceled subscription will continue to work until the date you have to renew it.

Remember to always keep the password when shopping, so you will know if you are subscribing to something by mistake . Read the conditions carefully and make sure there is a trial period before accepting. And whenever you activate one of these trial periods, you immediately cancel the subscription : this way you will avoid any possible payment.

Can the amount of a subscription already charged be refunded?

Cómo cancelar suscripciones en la Google Play Store

Just as purchases keep a period eligible for return, subscriptions also accept returns . Of course, Google is more strict with these types of requests, so it may not return your money. To obtain the return of subscriptions you must do the following:

  • If you noticed the payment before 48 hours , go to this Google Play page and look for the subscription subscription.
  • Click on the three points at the end and then on Request a refund .
  • Google will study the case and will refund the amount charged for the subscription if it deems appropriate.
  • If more than 48 hours have elapsed since the subscription is charged, you only have to contact the developer: go to the app’s tab in Google Play, go down to the company data and look for the creator’s email. Send an email explaining the situation and wait.

Given the rise of subscriptions, and that more and more developers hide the charges so that users do not realize that we subscribe , the best recommendation is to always read the purchase messages several times. And do not hesitate to visit the subscription area in the Google Play application frequently: at the slightest suspicion, cancel.

Google ejects a popular application uninstaller from the Play Store

App Manager, a popular application uninstaller, has been banned from Google Play for incurring alleged developer negligence.

With the huge number of applications that I have to test on my phones, I always carry an app that allows me to manage everything I don’t need: an uninstaller . I have tried many, none as App Manager : this popular application works great when it comes to removing out of use software. Well, rather it worked.

The App Manager developer has uncovered the controversy by receiving an email from Google telling him that they were removing his application from the Play Store ; blocking access to updates of this app and even the publication of any type of software in the official Android store. The measure seems disproportionate, especially because of Google’s claims.

App Manager could manage the Apks of the device, something that Google found as potentially malicious

Google expulsa de la Play Store un popular desinstalador de aplicaciones

Images alleged by Google to demonstrate the possible violation of its policies

If you have ever used App Manager , you will know that the application offers the list with everything you installed on the phone giving you the opportunity to uninstall it faster than usual. In addition, App Manager knows which applications you use the least (it needs access to usage data ), you can discover which ones have not been updated for a while and, subject to the controversy, you also find all the Apk you downloaded giving you the option to install them . It is a function that includes all file managers.

As Google stressed in the email sent to the App Manager developer , the company expelled the app and the developer of course malicious behavior . In the attached screenshots Google highlights the fact that App Manager can install Apks, something that does not undermine the Play Store policies for malicious content . Yes, it would violate these policies in the event that App Manager installs Apks without the user’s knowledge , and this does not: at all times the installation is manual and follows a guided mechanic prior acceptance of who uses the app.

Google expulsa de la Play Store un popular desinstalador de aplicaciones

It does not appear that Google is going to revoke its decision, so App Manager will no longer be available in the Play Store forever. This does not imply that it is an insecure application: the developer does not hide possible mysterious intentions at any time since the application is transparent . As we said, it does nothing with the Apks that other file managers do not offer, including Google Drive, for example.

App Manager continues to work on the devices that had it installed . The application will not be updated again, at least for now, it is also not available as a download through the Google Play Store. You always have, yes, download it in the form of Apk . As long as Google Play Protect doesn’t block it …

Google Datally disappears from Google Play and will not return

Google Datally is an excellent app to save mobile data, although it has no future. After a year without updates it has disappeared from Google Play.

There are traditions that never die, and Google for closing applications and services that do not finish curdling is one of them. Datally was an application to save very dear mobile data that has been removed from Google Play. The good news is that you can still get her. The bad one, which will not receive updates or corrections.

Google Datally disappears from Google Play definitely

An application that for a while had some popularity was Google Datally. This application was intended to save mobile data and help us better manage how we were using our rate. We love this application, but it seems that we will have to give it a final goodbye, since Google has decided to end it.

Although Android has data saving options, Datally offered better solutions.

It is not that Datally was an application that received news very frequently. Specifically, the last update of the application is from October 31, 2018 , so in a few days it will be a year that does not receive an update. If you think about it they have even taken time to close the application.

A cause that has been eliminated at this time and not before could be due to the incompatibility of the application with Android 10 . And if it is not going to be updated, why keep an application that will not work in new versions.

The application is still on Google Play , but only for users who already had it installed.

Although in Google Play the application is no longer available, if in your day you downloaded it you can still access it using the application link (if you have never downloaded it, a message will appear indicating that it is no longer available).

Didn’t you download it in your day and are you curious to try the application? Do not worry, you can also download it from sites like UptoDown or APKMirror, repository of trusted applications.
