Apps to take your high-tech phone back in time  by GirlGoneGeek

GirlGoneGeek says: No no, I don't mean making your super-powered Android phone operate like one of those old brick-sized cell phones of the late 90s. Go back a lot further with these apps to give your phone a little retro flavor!
GirlGoneGeek's picks
  1. Retro Camera
    Retro Camera The interface is almost like an old-fashioned toy camera, and lets you play with special effects like scratch and vignette. It's more of a supplement to your stock camera app than a replacement, but fun to have on board.
  2. Rotary Dialer
    Rotary Dialer Load this up and get the retro phone dial on your screen - complete with the cute little whirring noise when you spin it! It's not the most efficient thing in the world and will make you really appreciate your speed dial, but it's fun to play with and a lot better than a party line.
  3. TypeWriter
    TypeWriter Get the look and sound of an old-school classic typewriter for a nice change from your standard keyboard! Use this app when you're texting or emailing.
  4. Retro Desk Clock 4x1
    Retro Desk Clock 4x1 And top it all off with this fun clock widget on your homescreen. This old-fashioned clock almost looks like you'd have to wind it yourself to change the numbers - but don't worry. It only LOOKS old.
