Did you merely get a new Android phone? Why not a new HTC Incredible or Droid Evo? You’ve gotten the screens looking good, the font options just the manner in which you want them…but now you will need a few Android apps to make it better yet? And free apps are usually a lot better than ones you have to pay for, right?
I’ve compiled an inventory here of my Top 5 Android Apps (from the free apps category) that you’ll NEED to download on your phone when you do anything else. Without further ado…
1. Bar Code Scanner – This app features a deceptively simple name, huh? It’s soooo powerful, though. You start the app and point at it ANY kind of bar code codere app descargar, whether it’s the bar code on the rear of one’s Mountain Dew 20oz or one particular funny looking new QR Codes which can be beginning to pop up everywhere, and the free app does the others! I recently scanned a container of CVS water and the app connected me to the UPC Database and accurately found the amount for me.
2. An E-Reader App – Which (or those!) you download is a matter of personal taste. For me, I love to get the very best deal, so I downloaded all of the majors one: Barnes & Noble’s Nook, Amazon’s Kindle, and the Google Books app. In this manner I will read any format, have the max number of free ebooks, and even shop to find the best price before I buy any.
3. V-Cast Song ID or Shazam – If you’re a Verizon customer, your phone may come pre-installed with the V-Cast Song ID app. I’ve been utilizing it for decades on non-Android phones and it has never failed me. If you’re not on Big Red, though, look for Shazam and you need to get functionality equal to, or even better, than V-Cast Song ID. With either app, all that you need to do is to change the app on, hold it near to an audio, and await 10-20 seconds while it IDs the song and even links you to a download source or stores the title for later so you will get it from Amazon or iTunes.
4. Advanced Task Killer – In the event that you don’t get this app, you’ll be recharging your phone 3-4 times per day. Period. It active kills any processes (like your camera or maps apps) that you’ve accidentally left running in the background so you can maximize your battery life. Before I downloaded this app, I was literally recharging my Droid Incredible these 3-4 times per day. Now I may recharge it once after lunch if I had been playing music all morning.
5. Angry Birds / Angry Birds Seasons – What listing of Android Apps would be complete without mentioning Rovio’s Angry Birds? According to a write-up that Newsweek published on January 30, 2011, Rovio is taking aim at Nintendo’s Mario’s iconic status with their ticked off avians. This game is actually more of a crack-like addiction than anything I’ve ever experienced, and I recommend it to EVERYONE who own an intelligent phone, whether it’s Android- or Apple-based.
