    Android Apps - Which Ones Do You Use?

    Whats up fellas. For those who decided to take the smarter option, not follow the sheep, and go with a Non-Apple phone. What Apps are you running? What are the best apps for you? Why? Any good 'Thailand related' apps on the go?

    Kiss and tell.

    For a GPS program I use Sygic. Downloaded for free from 4Shared.

    I also use Sports Tracker to keep a note of all my routes done on the bike. Gives a workout breakdown (distance/top speed/fastest lap/calories burnt/etc.) Can also be used for jogging.

    Viber for free calls and messaging.

    Footy Live Scores (self explanatory)

    Classic Words Free (Scrabble)

    Al Jazeera

    BBC News

    Sopcast for streaming sport (then plugged into TV via HDMI)

    Flashlight LED Genius

    BBC & SKY News and Sport

    Dropbox

    Ultimate Chess

    TriviaBurst for fun in the pub and Sound Hound for 'name that tune' moments.

    You cant get you tube downloaders from the playstore, but i got tubemate from here
    TubeMate | SlideME
    You can just download the mp3 off it too, which is quick


    Another good app is "tune in radio"

    Ttorrent is good for downloading all kinds

    And if you want a good annoying addictive game apart from angry birds or temple ru, then get Wind up Knight. Its good

    Everrnote.. it's Dropbox for grown ups.

    Been using it for a couple of years on my computers and now it has an app.. spot on.

    Evernote | Remember everything with Evernote, Skitch and our other great apps.

    As Android is now a Google product I think the Chrome browser is probably going to be the best one to use.. well they are all still ironing out wrinkles... as yet though it doesn't have Do Not Track .. surely an essential extra for any browsing, whatever the device. But it's coming soon apparently, you can kind of understand Google being the last to implement it. I set up a new Gmail account soley for use with Android/Play store etc.. seems the best way really as the mobile network is a hackers paradise at the moment..

    I'm using Avast by the way.. you've got anti virus right..?

    avast! Free Mobile Security | Antivirus & Anti-Theft App for Android mobile & tablet

    *rant*
    I'm sure there has to be some regulations brought in to restrict what is at the moment free access by apps to do just about what they want with your data and your handset.. the small print on the terms and conditions on what in many cases appear to be very benign apps is somewhat disturbing.
    *rant over*

    The DB power amp music player is top notch, I'd rate it over Winamp which takes some beating. http://powerampapp.com/

    Zedge is the best app for free wallpapers and ringtones. Free ringtones, themes, wallpapers, games. Millions of downloads for your mobile phone | Zedge

    Glympse is another interesting app.. I haven't had a need to use it yet, but I will no doubt. Glympse
    Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride!"

    Swype keyboard (or swypelike keyboard) is a must. Some phones have them pre-installed.

    Talking Tom



    He is a cat and whatever you say to him he says back in a funny voice (he can even speak Thai). You can also tickle his tummy and he starts purring.
