Fresh Android Apps for Feb. 14: iRemote for iTunes Pro, Androidify, Plixi

by Ian Black

Happy Valentine’s Day! As a token of my love, I’m sharing some fresh apps with you today.

Got excited by the performances on the Grammy Awards last night? Use iRemote for iTunes Pro to control iTunes on a Windows-based PC, Androidify lets you personalize the Android character as yourself or someone you know and Plixi makes sharing photos a breeze.

iRemote for iTunes Pro ($1.05)

If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em. The popular iTunes music platform dominates on both Apple and Windows PCs. This app lets you control your Windows PC version using your Android phone. Features include the ability to adjust volume, toggle shuffle, view 'currently playing' details, browse by artists, album, playlists and more.

iRemote works over Wi-Fi or Bluetooth so you’ll be able to cruise around your house or office without a problem. It also supports all versions of iTunes.

Androidify (Free)

Love the little green Android character? Make it your own. This official Google app lets you play with the character by adding clothing, hairstyles, glasses and other wild accessories like pirate hats and a parrot.

Stretch, pull or shrink your new character and then share it with friends as your photo in your contacts list or via your Facebook or Twitter profile, in email, or in many other ways.

Plixi (Free)

It’s still not as easy as you’d like to share photos from your phone. Plixi hopes to end all the hassle, particularly when you want to post photos on more than one service. You don’t have to use a dedicated app for each service: Plixi lets you post to the Plixi service, Facebook, and Twitter with a single tap.

Send a photo from your Android’s gallery or snap a new one. Plixi also geo-tags photos with your location for you.
