Barcode Scanner

Scan a bar code and hit web search. Great for shopping! Also, awesome for apps! Just point your phone at the computer screen, scan, and the app will be downloaded.

Google Goggles

This app is unbelievable! Take a photo of practically anything and the app will identify it and find it on the web. If it can’t find the image, it will bring up similar images instead. Wow!

Sky Map

Choose automatic or manual mode and surf through space! View Constellations, planets, stars, and galaxies. You can also enable and disable a 3D grid. My only wish is that this app came with directions. It was a bit confusing to figure out. This is a silly question and I have a feeling that the app is set-up to be relative to earth. In that case, earth would not appear on the screen, because I’m viewing space from the earth. If this is not the case, where is the earth? Anyone?

Vlingo Virtual Assistant

Vlingo is a truly impressive voice activated virtual assistant. It even has a “car safe mode” that is helpful when you are driving. You can make phone calls, speak texts, have Vlingo read texts and your email to you. You can also search for directions, hotels, food, and almost anything you can imagine. The results are generally accurate. While it’s a little heavy on your battery, I still highly recommend this app.
