Fresh Android Apps for Nov. 3: Best Western to Go, and more

by Caitlin M. Foyt

In today's batch of Fresh Android Apps, we feature an app by the Best Western hotel chain that helps travelers plan their trips, another that may provide the secrets to success, a calculator that responds to the sound of your voice and a home Wi-Fi connection solution.

Best Western To Go (Android) FREE

This app helps travelers to find hotels and make reservations at any Best Western hotel worldwide. It also works as a trip planning app, giving users the option of putting the places and things that they would like to visit on a map. These itineraries can then be shared with concerned or jealous parents, friends and significant others.

Horoscopes Pro (Android) $2.99

People used to have to rely on a measly couple of lines in a newspaper for the details on how the stars and planets were affecting their romantic relationships and economic fortunes. The Horoscopes Pro app cuts out the middle man and includes direct daily and weekly horoscopes for both the Western and Chinese zodiac.

It also has information about the traits that define each of the astrological signs, allows users to refer to dated horoscopes and contains biorhythm charts. (Biorhythm uses basic mathematic cycles to predict different aspects of a person's life.) These insights can also be shared via text or email.

Voice Command Calculator AdVer (Android) FREE

Just when you thought it couldn't get any easier than hitting a few buttons on your tip calculating app. The Voice Command Calculator for your Android phone does exactly what its title says it does. Speak into your phone and it will calculate simple math, sales discounts and tips for you, completely hands-free.

Roamin' For Facebook (Android) FREE

When friends come to visit, they sometimes want to connect to your Wi-Fi network. This is an app that lets people you trust automatically connect to secured networks, without the hassle of trying to remember network names and passwords. Roamin' currently works by connecting with your Facebook friends, and the developers say they are adding even more social networks soon.
