The DNC 2012 app will definitely come in handy for the convention. For political junkies who also happen to be Democrats.
Now Current Caller ID displays social status messages of people who call or text you. This is handy if, when your friend calls, you can (possibly) quickly prepare yourself for what you'll talk about.
I am rather careless when it comes to the placement of electronics. I always misplace my phone somewhere in my house and this app is absolutely perfect for helping me find it. Every android phone user should get this app right away to insure that they never lose their phone. Even if you left it on silent mode, the app overcomes that and still rings at a high level to help you find it. By far one of my most useful apps.
I love this app and have read multiple books using it on my android phone. The features are great and it syncs perfectly with your Amazon account on your computer. For those people who don't want to spend the money on an iPad or Kindle and do not mind reading on a much smaller screen, there is no better app than this. My favorite part is the bookmark that allows me to keep track of the page I was on and then allows me to access that same page on my Kindle for Mac App that I also have.
ESPN got this app right! I can create a page with scores from my favorite teams, or pages for my favorite leagues! My favorite part is the bottom line though that makes me feel as if I am actually watching ESPN News. The only feature that would be cool to see is some sort of social adaptation where I can discuss the scores with other ESPN Scorecenter users.
I got a slew of challenging puzzles when I downloaded the free Brain Teasers app. If you have a mathematical mind (or want to try and build one up), grab this one.
I always tell my iPhone user friends that one huge advantage the Android phone has its GPS and navigation system, thanks entirely to this app. Once you have this app, there is no need for a Tom Tom or Garmin device. It does everything that those devices do and more! My favorite feature is the fact that it immediately recognizes the speed limit in your area. My only suggestion for users would be to get a car phone charger as well so that your phone will charge while using this app, because it does drain battery power.
I really like Starbucks Android app. I think it gets the job done in terms of being able to use your phone as your starbucks card. The fact that it shows your location and nearby starbucks stores makes it even more relevent. However, I believe that it is missing a little bit of that "wow" factor that we have come to expect from all starbucks products. I don't know what that can be, but I definitely see room for improvement.
This app is a free test that figures out how old your brain is by average your scores in three sections. I feel like it should have a broader array of tests, but it's good fun.
The Pandora app for Android is unbelievable and might be my favorite app on the phone. Other than a 10 second buffer when you change the station, the music continues to flow out smoothly as if you were listening to the radio. My favorite part is that all station changes and song likes simultaneously goes to your web account, reminding me of Apple's amazing cloud software. Great app if you love music and who doesn't!
These river tests are really difficult. You can find the solutions on YouTube, but you should seriously try solving them on your own.
Overall, MORE puzzles that are less difficult would be great. This way I would have been built up to play the harder river-crossing scenarios. If you're into fording the river in The Oregon Trail, check this one out.
Babel Rising's graphics are amazing, and the premise is very unique. Your goal (as God) is to stop Babylonians from completing the Tower of Babel, by any means necessary. It's like a micro tower defense game!
I've been playing this game on the Kindle Fire for the past couple weeks and it has been going very smoothly. It has a hint feature which I use a little too often and a one-tap-move system as well. Nice take on a classic game.
