Did you just get a fresh Android phone? Perhaps a new HTC Incredible or Droid Evo? You’ve gotten the screens looking good, the font options just how you want them…but now you need a few Android apps to produce it better yet? And free apps are always better than ones you’ve to fund, right?
I’ve compiled an inventory here of my Top 5 Android Apps (from the free apps category) that you’ll NEED to download onto your phone before you do anything else. Without further ado…
1. Bar Code Scanner – This app includes a deceptively simple name, huh? It’s soooo powerful, though. You begin the app and point at it ANY form of bar code descargar codere, whether it’s the bar code on the trunk of your 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 remainder! I just scanned a bottle of CVS water and the app connected me to the UPC Database and accurately found the number for me.
2. An E-Reader App – Which (or which ones!) you download is really a matter of personal taste. For me, I prefer to get the most effective deal, so I downloaded all the majors one: Barnes & Noble’s Nook, Amazon’s Kindle, and the Google Books app. In this manner I can read any format, obtain the max amount of free ebooks, and even shop for 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 using it for decades on non-Android phones and it never failed me. If you’re not on Big Red, though, look for Shazam and you should get functionality add up to, or even better, than V-Cast Song ID. With either app, all that you want to do is to modify the app on, hold it close to a speaker, and watch for 10-20 seconds although it IDs the song and even links one to a download source or stores the title for later so you will get it from Amazon or iTunes.
4. Advanced Task Killer – If you don’t understand 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 back ground so you can maximize your battery life. Before I downloaded this app, I was literally recharging my Droid Incredible the aforementioned 3-4 times per day. Now I would recharge it once after lunch if I had been playing music all morning.
5. Angry Birds / Angry Birds Seasons – What list 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 using their ticked off avians. This game is really more of a crack-like addiction than anything I’ve ever experienced, and I suggest it to EVERYONE who own a good phone, whether it’s Android- or Apple-based.
