if anycut was really any shortcut it would be great.... but it isnt
#skymaps is massif
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.
Color me geek...
but I love the shotgun, ak47, and lightsaber apps. Too much fun!
and I use the Stewie soundboard regulary in class w/my students -
"Oh very funny! Now tell us the one that doesn't suck!"
ShapeWriter Inputting method
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"
Folks who like this thread like I do, might also like a new thread called My Best New App... I just created. Slight difference from favorite to new app.
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.
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.
Google Listen is excellent. A few tweaks needed but an excellent podcasting app
Is it ok if I post a link of site that provides some of the paid apps for free
favor tools : EStrongs File Explorer : manager files and computers
Wireless tether: use netwrok
favor game: Robo defender
No thank you, if the apps are good then surely the authors deserve our support by paying for them.
I have a number of favourite apps that I stumbled across, that I wish I'd discovered earlier:
Aldiko - ebook reader
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.
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.
yes, but one app is 25$. it's a lot of money
I can't find ChompSMS in the Market, am I missing it somehow?
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.
