My favorite android applications


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.
