Fresh Android Apps for June 7: Evernote Food, Perfect Uninstaller, Holo Launcher

by Marty Gabel

Hit the weekend running with our selection of Fresh Apps. Evernote Food will ensure that you won’t forget any great meals you enjoy once you snap a photo of them. Meanwhile, Perfect Uninstaller will keep your smartphone or tablet free of clutter. Finally, we’ve got Holo Launcher which replicates the Ice Cream Sandwich Launcher experience for those who may never get a dedicated update.

Evernote Food (Free)

Hot on the heels of Evernote Hello, comes Evernote Food. This app, previously released on iOS, allows you to capture, remember and share all your food experiences. So, if you find yourself at a restaurant eating a dish you may want to enjoy again, or at a bar drinking a brew that you want to remember next time you visit, Evernote Food can help.

The app includes swipeable snapshots with captions so you remember every detail of your meal. Evernote Food can even add titles and tags based on the time of day and your location, and the app instantly displays venues and restaurants near your location. In addition, all of the meals and food experiences that you capture are displayed in a scrollable list.

Perfect Uninstaller (Free)

Apps from Google Play can be easily uninstalled, but perhaps they leave files and detritus behind. Apps you install yourself independently can be a little more troublesome, and uninstalling them using the OS itself might not remove every last trace. Enter Perfect Uninstaller, which provides a much better way to clear out everything unwanted apps leave behind.

This free app uninstalls your apps effectively and simply, either one at a time or in batches. There’s a convenient search function too, so you can find those apps that may otherwise be hidden. It’s a handsome looking app that does its job well, though users should be aware that it won’t uninstall system apps or pre-installed bloatware from your carrier.

Holo Launcher (Free)

Still waiting for the official Ice Cream Sandwich update to your advice? Join the club. Sure, you could root and install a ROM, but perhaps that’s not something you feel confident about. So, here’s Holo Launcher, which replaces your Android’s current Launcher with a cool-looking, slick theme based on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

While Holo Launcher won’t provide the same bells and whistles as a proper ICS update, it’s still got a lot to offer including up to nine desktop pages, scrollable dock, swipe gestures, the ability to backup and restore your settings, and plenty of extensive customization options to make your Android experience shine. This app offers a whole lot, especially for free.
