Android App List

 

Out of all the highest ranked Android apps (like the best restaurant apps), some are useful, others are entertaining, while others shine for their uniqueness and sci-fi touch. But all of those apps have something in common: they really have a way of making your life sweeter. A way in which to enrich your life via updating your Android device.

If you are eager to make your life that little bit sweeter why not check out our list below. It will be sure to brighten up your life in no time at all. Check it out after the jump…

 

1. Google Maps

Unless you never actually leave your house, this amazing navigational tool is an app you’ll regularly use and benefit from. And even if you’re familiar with the PC version of gMaps, you will surely be impressed when you see it running on your Android and benefiting from the GPS chip. Getting lost? Never again will you have to, as long as you have this app at hand to give you directions. This is honestly one of the most reliable and stable applications of it’s kind. It has saved my bacon countless times.

 

2. Barcode Scanner

From checking out the price of untagged products at the supermarket to identifying a tattered medication box via the barcode, there are plenty of ways that you could benefit from carrying around a barcode scanner in your pocket. With this application you can do just that; just point your camera at a bar code and your Android will briskly bring out the relevant info.

 

3. Splashtop

Do you often forget important files at your desktop computer, or routinely find the need to check an important document stored at home? With this remote desktop app, you can do that and much more. Provided you leave the Splashtop client running in your PC, you’ll be able to connect to it from your Android device remotely over the Internet, no matter the distance. Needless to say this has practical application in all sorts of situations.

 

4. AccuWeather

We just hate when the weather plays tricks on us. You leave the house in shorts and suddenly you’re in a blizzard. What gives? Drawing detailed local forecasts from one of the most reputable meteorology networks in the world, Accuweather will give you the power of peeking into the future as easily as you can peek out your apartment windows. The best part? 99% of the times it really works like magic. Never get caught out by the weather again.

 

5. Google Sky Maps

If you’re the kind of person who enjoys contemplating the night sky, Google Sky Maps was made for you. With an extensive database of sky charts, together with the compass and gyroscope sensors in your Android, this app can create a detailed overlay with information on the stars above. Just point it to anywhere in the sky, and prepare to be amazed.

 

6. TripJournal

For anyone who fancies travelling, this application will be a more than welcome addition to their existing applications. TripJournal is a great way to keep track of your travelling, allowing you to compile pictures, texts, voice notes regarding our journeys. The app will automatically retrieve GPS coordinates and keep track of your routes, allowing you to easily add your thoughts and sights anywhere along the way.

 

7. Cut the Rope

Anytime you feel like indulging yourself with a little bit of gaming, there are plentiful Android games available. From the vast selection in the marketplace, Cut the Rope is one of the most popular as of late… and you’ll totally get why, after playing it for a few minutes. This puzzle game features hundreds of levels, and brilliantly provokes the “I-think-I’ll-play-just-one-time” syndrome. You are sure to find yourself glued to the screen in no time at all.

 

8. Autodesk Sketchbook

If you care to unleash the inner artist, you should try this out; simply put, it’s the most sophisticated drawing app available for Android. With support for multiple layers, dozens of brushes, multiple undo levels, a good selection of drawing tools and the ability to zoom into your pictures freely, this app may just help turn your Android into a portable sketchbook.

Deborah J. Henninger

Wow! this are great apps! I’m using Samsung galaxy right now I think I need to have some of this apps for my phone. One of my friends told me that their is an application in android that will help you monitor secretly other android user. Is this true? what software is that?

Matt

The only thing about Android, that sometimes annoys me, and believe me, I love my Android, is that I cannot do screenshots.

It’s a very comfortable thing to actually do screenshots, so easy with iPhones, and I’m not an iPhone fan. Apparently you need a rooted Android mobile phone, I don’t want to do this, too much risk, I guess :).

Sajith

I am using Samsung Galaxy S2 android phone. At the moment I am using Google maps and barcode scanner. What I want to know is can I add all above apps to my mobile device?

Anyway your post is great.

Hope you will reply.
Good luck.
