I would have to say that Power Manager is the app that I couldn't do without. If it wasn't for that, my phone would be dead by the middle of the day. My day starts at 5 in the morning and my phone usually doesn't go back on the charger until 10 at night. Great app.

Default My Best New App is...

This thread is contains the collective Android Forums group think of their best new app of the moment.

If you post an app here, make it one you have used and would rate 4 stars or higher. (Potentially good apps can wait until the features have been added/bugs worked out that make them 4+ stars.)

Why create this thread?
There are more than 10K apps in the market and more new ones daily. You might find a hidden gem and others will benefit.

This thread is:
A place to learn about good new apps

This thread is not:
An ad board for new apps
A place to complain that "you have had that app for X long already"

Life Stories - I was a big fan of the FMyLife app, but Life Stories has FMyLife, FMySexLife, Gives Me Hope, Hate Post, It Made My Day, I Had a Win, My Life is Average, Makes Me Think, My Life is Crap, and Today I LOL'd. Great way to entertain me while I'm bored.

Twidroid Pro - I wayyyy overused the free version, so it was only right to pay for it.

NewsRob - Great way to get my Google Reader content.

I know that's three, but they are the three that keep my day entertaining.

I have been using the browser for my Google reader mobile. Is News Rob sync with it in terms of "read, starred, deleted" and how do you feel about giving up your Google ID to a third party?

I am a big fun of "ShapeWriter Keyboard". I tried it before on iPhone, but it's not an inputting method. Now on Android, it can provide a full version inputting method.
Now I can reply the email, SMA much easier and faster.

Thumbs up Simple Problem Solved - Call Caddy

Ok, so the fact is that many of my favorite apps have appeared here already, so here is a very useful one that I don't see. It's called "Call Caddy" and it solves the problem of not having a proximity sensor on your phone. It is especially useful for HTC phones and it works by unlocking and locking your screen when you make or receive phone calls. The iPhone does this automatically, and it used to drive me nuts that my HTC didn't. Kudos to the guys that finally fixed this annoying issue. Def worth the buck.

Aldiko is great for me , it sucks that i've never seen anyone mentioning it. it allows you to read ebooks in epub format from your sd card. So with torrents and pdf to epub converters easily available , i never need to go to the library again!

Ok, I do not have an Android phone yet! I am waiting for the much anticipated Motorola Droid. My question is I saw a video clip or something about an App or maybe it was a Widget that gave sports updates. I am big on keeping up to date with my favorite sports teams. Can anyone help me out with an explanation please?

I use Sports Tap. I have tried many others and find this app all inclusive. It's really easy to keep up with sports, data, articles, photos, and more.

B-Folders - password/note storage
OI Shopping List - lists!
3G Watchdog - monitor your data usage
Y5 Battery Saver - turn WiFi on/off depending on presence of WiFi signal
AutoLock - enables screen lock only after a given timeout.

Games:
Bebbled
GeoQuiz

Locale is great for making sure my phone is on silent when at work and during the night.

GMote 2.0 is without a doubt the single best application in the history of phones. I absolutely love it!

I agree. It's not like these apps are very expensive. Developer spend a lot of times on these things and I like to support the good developers so that they are encouraged to make more programs.

Default App's Question

I have a question as far as compatibility ! I will be a free agent come December and will choose between the iphone or Droid....... I really want the Droid... So I am reading up on everything I can before I make my choice. I like that the Droid is an open source. But I worry about who is managing the apps.
Long story short ... I am lining up all my apps I want before I get the phone.. I see that I want the power manager, battery icon on home page, Locale, and many more................

My question is with all of these custom settings from locale, power manager, and other apps that can do custom settings on where I am etc. do these apps conflict with each other. I love to customize stuff. I use Firefox an a lot of times some of my extensions that I use to customize my browser conflict and conflict or crash the other tweeks I have added.
Is anyone finding this troublesome ? I love all the apps but wonder which one to download because there is not one that does all and a lot that seem to override each other on 1 or two tasks.

If I could write an app I would design one that does everything I like from many out there to keep it simple.... I'm loosing sleep just reading about all the apps.

Being a new android user, and fresh Hero owner (only got it less than 24 hours ago) one app everyone should own is Wavesecure.

It's not the most exciting, or the most interesting, but feature wise it is simply unmissable. And if they can make it survive a hard reset, it will bve even better.

Google Skymap has got to be the coolest app I have ever used. Hold it up to the sky and it has the stars and planets labeled as you see them.

TouchDown works great as an Exchange/Active Sync program (way better than the OS email/exchange app.)

I know it is part of the new OS, but the Google Maps Navigation is also really slick. I just got a MotoDroid along with the car cradle and I just drop it in touch the voice search button and say "navigate to Piggly Wiggly" (grocery store) and it brings it up on a map for me to verify the destination, then I can select navigate and it starts mapping and telling me how to get there. It even reroutes as soon as it realizes that you have strayed from the original route and when you arrive, it switches automatically to street view so you can compare your surroundings to a 360 degree on-screen view.

We recognize that as more and more phones are released ShopSavvy (and any app that scans a barcode) will need to be tweaked to accommodate different frame rates and focal lengths. We have decided to port our iPhone scanning library (i.e. allowing for blurry barcode scanning) to Android. Once we update ShopSavvy to include 'meatloaf' (this is the name of our scanning software) it should work on ANY Android phone that has a camera (knock on wood).

I am not a ShopSavvy user so why the comment then?

Well I like to pass on good stories. I was in a toy store this weekend and a man was jumping around like Will Ferrell in Elf, giddy with excitement.

The first thing I noticed after I looked past his tights (jk) was his android phone. Cool I thought. Then I realized he was using a scanning app to scan prices and commenting to his wife about each item he was scanning.

She finally said to him, "that's a cool app but we really don't need all these great buys."

He replied, "I know, but ShopSavvy is the coolest app in the world, I love it. I just love it."

I smiled.

I had no idea you hung out on AF and hope your team is inspired by this funny but true story. Elf 2, product placement opportunity anyone? Keep up the great work!

Searched real quickly through here and I saw some posts on SMS Pop Up....The best app I have downloaded so far that has gotten the most use is Handcent SMS. By far the BEST add text app out there for the Android phones.

Talking "listen"

for me it would have to be "listen" since i love listening to the androidguys podcast while driving home.

I haven't been particularly impressed by most of default apps or the more popular market apps. Most are missing one feature or another compared to their non-mobile counterparts. However, one app that continues to impress is Google Sky Map. Standing out in the back yard having a beer and being able to figure out which planet you're looking at instantly is just awesome.

You would just get notifications from both unless you disabled one of them. I personally like Handcent better.

My most used app is Bar Control. Bar Control allows you to put links to apps in the notification bar (status bar). This allows you to switch to your most used apps quicker without going to the home screen.

I agree.. frequent updates, allows texting to groups, recent and whole contacts list as you browse.

Many other tweaks too... like changing freq and color of led etc.

voice to text.

Also allow long texts and puts in 160 character clumps and then sends whole message seamlessly.
