I mentioned previously that I picked up an Android phone a few weeks back. As typical geek, I have been on a quest to outfit my phone with some killer applications, and to make my phone use a truly awesome experience. I’ve tested dozens and dozens of applications, and thought I would share my favourites here:
1. News — Basic RSS reader that works.
2. Pandora — Plays music based on your musical prefernces.
3. Google sky — Provides a picture of the sky and displays the star and planet names.
4. Zillow — Shows you real estate listings based on your GPS location.
5. Youtube — Watch youtube movies with a touch of your finger.
6. FM radio — Listen to FM radio stations.
7. Cardiotracker — Provides an easy way to track your work outs.
8. Coupons — Gives you quick access to online coupons.
9. Wooopie cushion — Great for messing with your girlfriend or wife. ;)
10. Notes — Allows you to jot down notes on your phone.
11. First aid — Gives you access to first aid resources on your phone.
12. Gigstar — Notifies you when your favorite bands are performing.
There are dozens of other awesome applications available in the Google market, and I would love to get your thoughts on cool applications that aren’t listed above.
