Productivity apps for when stock ones just won’t cut it

Oct 8, 2010

Your Android comes pre-loaded not only with goofy things like NASCAR (sorry, Sprint!), but with apps you’ll want to use every day, like messaging, emailing, browsing and calendar apps. But sometimes the options, functions, and looks of those stock apps just don’t cut it for you. Try these on for size and see if you can’t find a better fit.

Jorte Calendar & Organizer

I admit, my interest in Jorte was purely for the look of the widget. It syncs seamlessly with my Google and Facebook calendars and has a lot of options for customizing the size and colors of the widget to work with the look of my screen.


Dolphin – Best Web Browser 

What a difference over the stock browser! This guy runs a lot more like a proper computer browser, with tabs and add-ons and toolbars. A must for the web junkie.


K-9 Mail

K-9 stomps the stock mail app with its amazing features. Use it with searches, multi-account sync, and spam filtering options you don’t find on stock.


chomp SMS

I prefer this over the stock messaging app because I can customize my notifications in so many more ways. From popups to custom ringtones, this one’s a winner.
