We lead off this week’s selection with Chameleon Launcher. It came out of beta and is available to all tablet owners who want to spice-up their home screens with a great-looking launcher. Also this week, CallApp reemerged in Google Play after some time away, Bloomberg released a great business/finance news radio app, Rhapsody got a handy update and Sonar wants to help you find friends nearby with common interests. Here are this week’s best Android apps.
Sonar: Friends Nearby (Free)
Here’s an app we showcased a while ago, but we’re happy to see it finally emerge from beta and become available for everyone. Sonar helps you find friends and like-minded people nearby. You log-in with Facebook or Foursquare and the app learns who your friends are and what kind of things you like. Then, it uses GPS to detect people who are close by and who share common interests. Conversely, you can set your own status message and let other users come to you, if they like what they see. Sonar could be useful at the next conference, trade show, or live event you attend.
