Android is a very popular operating system, and (according to some reports) is outselling the iOS on the iPhone (source
), and if not, it's certainly giving iOS a hard time.
With this rise in the Android OS's popularity, I thought it would be a good idea if we shared some of the apps we like to use for our Android phones and tablets. I have both, actually, a Galaxy Note 2 phone running 4.1.2, and an Acer Iconia running 3.2.1. Quite happy with them both.
I have the standard Google Maps app (love the sat nav feature, it got quite a work out on a recent road trip) and other standards such as Facebook.
Some of the others that I installed are Wikipedia
Some ones that you might not have heard of are:
, a book review app that has reviews from users, as well as a neat barcode scan function to look up a book.
which listens to a bit of music and tells you what the song is, along with links so you can download the song, find the lyrics, etc.
, a solid scientific calculator app.
, which is surprisingly full featured for a free app, with individual colour curves and a lot of other powerful functions.
I also have the popular games like Angry Birds and Bad Piggies. I've found a few lesser known games, like Major Mayhem
, Hot Death Uno
and a colour game called Blendoku
