I agree that's how I like lists. Not only showing the description for the app but also a quick link to the source/Android market page.

As for sleeping's List,
Circle launcher I use this also and it comes in handy on tablets.
Airdroid, I like its view, but for some reason does not show my contact list on my Photon.
aCalendar, I think I have found my replacement calendar.
Photo Calendar all I can say is wow. I love it.

Now let me add a few more..
Recently when I click on the MyApps link in the Market on my Photon 4G phone, it does not show anything. With the "Best Apps Market" app I am able to and the interface is more pleasing than the actual Android Market.
The apps for you feature is very useful and actually shows apps that have been better recommended than the one currently on the phone.
It also has..
A nice Widget to place on home screen.
Ample settings.
Allows a nickname to be used when signing comments.
Also adds a direct shortcut in the apps drawer to your apps.

Combine this with the developers' other app titled "One! Best Recommendations" and your search and management of apps is complete.

App access

Circle launcher - I keep this on my home screen for all of the apps that I might like to keep close at hand. Very attractive and highly functional.
SwipePad - Set up a hotspot on your screen and you can call up a grid of 12 apps to access from anywhere on your phone. There are several paid-for extras (for example to expand the number of apps on the grid from 12), of which I've only bought the AppLauncher, which lets you appoint the app drawer from one of the grid spots.

Tools
Airdroid - Many others have talked about it and it is a great app. Essentially performs a similar role to Samsung's "Kies Air", which lets you control various of your phone's functions from your computer over the wi-fi network.
aTimer - A grid of 15 configurable timers and stopwatches. You can label each individually too, if you like.

Calendar
aCalendar - A nice, clean and well-laid-out calendar app. I now use it in preference to HTC's built-in one. The developer seems to have put a lot continued work and thought into improving it.

Search
CloudMagic - A centralised search function to trawl through your Google and Twitter accounts. It works well, but doesn't support as many different account types as Greplin (but Greplin doesn't have an android app).
Evi - The best natural-language voice search app (think Siri-alike) I've used so far on Android. It had some initial server connection issues, but they have now been fixed. It doesn't perform voice actions, but it's worth a look.
Google Gesture Search -Allows you to search your phone for contacts, apps or bookmarks by drawing figures on the screen. You can activate it by turning the phone over and back again (although this drains the battery faster).

Location
Glympse - Location sharing done right. Share your location for a user-determined period of time or until you reach a set destination. Your location can be sent out to phone numbers, email addresses and even Facebook. Highly recommended.

Camera/gallery
Actionsnap - Lets you turn your phone into one of those Lomography cameras with multiple lenses that puts multiple images on the same frame. It makes for some pretty cool effects.
Pano - A great app for making panoramas - the stitching on this is excellent. My Sensation hasn't got an upgrade to ICS yet, so I don't know how this compares to the stock panorama utility on Android 4.0
Photo Calendar - I find scrolling through all of my photos to find the most recent ones annoying, so this organises your shots by day. Very useful and well presented.

Media
ReadItLater - I send so many things from either my Twitter feed or Google Reader to this. It saves article-style pages to your phone and to their website (which also has Firefox and Chrome add-ons available, so you can sync a bunch of different pages for later reading easily). It cleans up the layout, removes ads and gives you just what you want. Pretty much perfect.
Spool - Similar to ReaditLater (above), but for richer media like videos, etc. Not as fast, for obvious reasons, and the layout work isn't quite as good. However, the app is relatively new and they're still working on it, so it's worth a try.
Sensor Music Player - It allows you to use various of your phone's sensors to control your music's playback. Extremely cool.
Youtube Remote - Lets you control your Youtube viewing on your laptop or other screen from your phone or tablet.
Nice list

The conversation was about aCalendar. I gave it a spin today and loved it. In fact, I un-installed Business Cal to make room for this one

aCalendar is nice, but Business Calendar is much better for my needs and has a lot more options.

I was funning with Blkblt message #2417, lol. Its a running joke.

Since youve used Business Calendar and now lime aCalsndar even more, could you please post bulleted items where aCalendar trumps Business Calendar? Id like to read these.

So far, I just cant tare away from my Business Cendar. I have 6 different callendars activy attached... One of which contain retro dates and events as far back as 2003 where these have either monthly or yearly evens scheduled.....

I think it boils down to "preference-based-on-feel," not much more than that. Granted, as pat mentioned above, BizCal has a lot more options and it is more robust, but for my needs aCal, being leaner, is perfect. I especially like the weekly look, it reminds me of my old Treo

my favorite app is called "autoforum", search it in the market, it's very cool. it's a forum that discusses cars. (powered by the same software as this forum). my second favorite app is probably BGR which is a great tech news source

Just downloaded Best Apps Market and it is great. Very easy for moving apps to card and the recommendation of apps based on what you already have is also tremendous. Good find - thanks.

You hit it right on the head... its more of preference based on feel. I for one, have attachments to BizCal, like you, because it reminds me of other apps and devices i had before. Plus, Ive got so much stored and built arouned BizCal that I am content with it. Plus there some features Ive not tapped into yet and its good to knnow i can 'discover' these features as time and the need arise.

I tried "ONE", looked promising, but half the recommendations on the 1st page are for free versions of the Pro version I already have. I'm thinking it's not recognizing all the free "Pro" versions I got at Amazon. I must say I like Appbrain better. Easy to sort by rating and see what's "best" in any category.

More people need to explain what the app does. Some of the apps have some really weird names.

Please call me Danatrix, thank you.

I don't think I wanna name all these pages worth of apps, would you? That's quite a few. I was browsing through all the pages last night, wishing that more people would explain the apps they posted; what they do, how they're helpful, and maybe even a rating if it's remembered.

An <insert name> to-do list is common sense, but the only reason I know about Angry Birds is because I saw a commercial for some phone or the game itself. I'm not quite sure anymore. As a newbie, I feel like I'm just reading funny words put together. LOL! I think it's a great thread, but it would be more helpful and easier if those who posted would explain the app.

Yeah I can see that but if you don't know just ask or if the app is free just give it a try

Or people could just give a short description of the app with a link like a lot of us do, that way it saves others time by not having to write multiple posts just to ask something that should have been included in the first place.

Also, a lot of us don't have the unlimited time needed to go to the market to check on and download every app we have a question about.

For the game fanatics, a must try is 'Where's my water'

Very addictive.

An <insert name> to-do list is common sense, but the only reason I know about Angry Birds is because I saw a commercial for some phone or the game itself. I'm not quite sure anymore. As a newbie, I feel like I'm just reading funny words put together. LOL! I think it's a great thread, but it would be more helpful and easier if those who posted would explain the app.

One 2 issues I have 1) the damn permissions are too intense for a simple game >_< and the last update re-setted my game history. So, I'm not very impress :@

Well said, pat. And thank you, Roze!

My turn. (:

If you like to download music, there's an awesome app called Music Paradise. It's free with a current rating of 4.6, and it's super easy to learn. Fast downloads with great quality music. I downloaded 60 songs in nearly 30 minutes. Highly recommended!

Default App reviews

I wanted to start doing reviews on apps that are of a common person's opinion. So i decided to try it out by making a website where I will do these reviews, and try to post one on at least a weekly basis, and maybe even sooner. Check it out if you want, what will a use of 5 minutes be?

Gotta be CamScanner.

Needed to scan and email something urgently. My scanner was not working for whatever reason, then I remembered I downloaded camscanner ages ago and never used it until now. So good! I love technology!

That's why I never tried it. Long press the search button and just say what I'm looking for. Google finds everything!

Here are my ten... nothing new though for most of you:

Having used my Android phone for about a year now, the Android Market is getting less exciting to me. While there are new apps everyday, I already have a stable of apps which I count on which I consider useful among the 400,000+ available apps.

I did not include in my list the dialer, SMS, calendar, FriendStream (Twitter/Facebook/LinkedIn), news reader, calculator and flashlight apps as I use the default apps installed on my phone. These are proprietary HTC apps, which are not downloadable from the market. These are my most used Android Market apps:

1. Swiftkey (Paid). For five years before going to a touchscreen phone I used phones with full physical QWERTY keyboards. I do not think that I will ever type us fast on a touchscreen as I did with a physical QWERTY keyboard. Swiftkey, with its excellent word prediction helps a lot. It learns your habits and can even predicts whole words for you before you type the first letter of the next word. Give it a try.

2. Gmail (Pre-installed/Free). For Gmail users, the best email app is Google Gmail app. It basically gives you the same degree of functionality as if you were on your desktop.

3. Dropbox (Free). Drop box keeps my files in synced between my desktop replacement and ultraportable laptop and allows my phone to access the files synced. You get 2 GB of web storage free, but can work your way up to 10 GB via referrals and tasks. Sign up through this link, and you start out with 2.25 GB



4. Google Maps (Pre-installed/Free). We all need maps. This is the best around and it is free. Google Maps includes, Navigation, Places and Latitude. Places is particularly useful telling you what Restaurants, Bars and Cafes nearby and helps you find them.

5. ColorNote (Free). ColorNote is great for taking notes and keeping check lists. You can create multiple notes and lists. For task lists, you can create a widget which tells you how many tasks you have undone. Only thing missing is that Task Lists not sync with Google Tasks or any other online back-up.

6. ReadItLater Pro (Paid). I use this is conjunction with my Twitter app. I save interesting link to articles here and read them using ReadItLater. While ReadItLater can sync to your other devices I use ReadItLater to read them because it present articles in a nice format for handheld reading as opposed to the web page view.

There is also I free version at this link. I liked it so much, I got the pro version.

7. ezPDF Reader (Paid). The key feature of this PDF reader is text reflow. It can wrap the text on PDF documents so they fit the boundaries of the screen.

8. Wopnersoft Unit Converter (Free). There are plenty of good unit converter in the Android Market. This one works well and is add free.

9. Picsay Pro. There are plenty of great photo editing apps on the Android Market. Picsay Pro is the best in my opinion. Try the free version. The Pro Version is much better and worth the money.

10. Screen Lock (Free/Donate). I use this to lock my phone using the capacitative search button. This saves some wear on tear on my power button. Free app is fully functional, but I got the donate version. Wanted to support the developer.

The only one I disagree with is Gmail. All I use is Gmail at work and home, but I find the Gmail app really lacking in customization. I use K9, it allows you to only show the folders you want to see. Unless the Gmail app has changed recently, it lists all your folders. I have about 20 folders, of which I only use 4 or 5, and K9 can put those at the top of the list (and not show any others). I also find the mail more readible in K9 (pinch-zoom seems to work better). I really want to like Gmail, since I hate having 2 apps that do almost the same thing on a phone.

I tried K9 twice, and absolutely HATED it with every fiber of my being. When I check my Email, I want to be able to do so quickly and easily. I don't want to have these stupid classes of folders, trying to figure out what's what and where a specific Email is. K9 and those apps that use folder classes are the most complicated, confusing things I've ever seen!

K9 is more geared towards Business people that require such organization of their emails If you don't use folders, then it's pretty useless IMO.

I agree, not easy to set up, but once you figure it out, works well. I also agree if you only use 3 or 4 folders, Gmail would be perfect. I use K9 to only check/push my gmail inbox, work inbox (pushed from ISP), work sent, and my yahoo account. If I use Gmail 2 of those folders are way down the list (a pain, and much slower to access). I try it once a month to see if any updates make it work for me, but so far, no go.

GO notifications lets me know when an email arrives in any folder, with a notification icon... couldn't be any faster. I actually am sitting at my computer with Gmail open, I hear "you have an email" on my Player, and nothing is on my PC for 10-15 seconds.

My main gripes with Gmail:
1. Can't "not show" junk folders (like priority inbox, starred, important, chats, outbox, all mail, spam... to name a few), or sort them to the bottom.
2. Can't pinch-zoom an email.
3. Can't change "theme". I like dark K9 (black with white text), Gmail is an ugly grayish/purple color.

I do like most of the UI in Gmail (like reply button location). It just needs a few more user options.

Gmail also doesn't allow you to mass delete from your phone, which sucks.
