Fresh Android Apps for Dec. 29: Greenmarkets Buddy, Wallet

by Caitlin M. Foyt

Today's Fresh Android apps features one that will help you to track down your local farmers' markets and another that helps you protect important passwords and account information.

Greenmarkets Buddy (Android) $1.99

This is an app that lets users hunt down local farmers' markets and greenmarkets across the United States. Greenmarkets Buddy allows you to search by city and state or find all of the markets closest to your current location. It also gives you driving directions to any market on the map. Check out other people’s ratings and comments and then later, after you checked out the market for yourself, you can give it a rating, too.

Wallet (Android) FREE

Wallet is a special kind of security app. It stores all of your more sensitive data such as bank account information and passwords on your phone. When you use Wallet, your data is encrypted using the industry standard AES-256. Only you will be able to access this data via a master password. Wallet self-locks after a timeout period so that your data will be safe even if you lose your phone. Wallet is also useful for remembering all those little bits and pieces of information in one place such as your kid's social security number or your frequent flier numbers.
