Fresh Android Apps for May 4: Google I/O 2011, LittleGuitar

by Ian Black

In today’s fresh apps, scope out the next Google Developer Conference (Google I/O 2011) before it starts or play your pocket guitar (LittleGuitar).

Google I/O 2011 (Free)

Google’s I/O Developer Conference takes place in San Francisco on May 10-11. Get the inside scoop in this new Android app.

Browse the conference schedule, look through the speaker bios, explore the companies that will participate in the Developer Sandbox, navigate using the conference map, or read the real-time feedback from the crowd.

Keep your own notes about the conference right inside the app.

LittleGuitar (Free)

Have you heard the Van Halen classic Little Guitars? It’s a great song but, unfortunately, it has nothing to do with this app.

Don’t let your iPad-owning friends snatch all the fake instrument fun. Whip out your Android based axe, or more precisely axe-let, with LittleGuitar. Multitouch allows you to play two strings simultaneously.

“Quality Sound” promises the app’s description.
