The Android Market may not be chocked with as much apps as the Apple App store, but with over 50,000 applications for download it’s still much for us-isn’t it? Though our all-time-favourite BeebPlayer is no longer available, yet we have tones of options to choose from. So here we place 10 best Android Apps of this month. Use the given QR codes to download the apps directly to your HTC EVO and HTC Incredible.
Barcode Scanner: It’s not often you come across an app that’s not just free, but can also save you money. However, this is exactly what Barcode Scanner is all about. The app fires up your phone’s camera and highlights a rectangle in the centre of the screen where you frame up the barcode you want to scan. Once everything is aligned the app will grab the barcode information.
Opera Mini 5 Beta: When you’re on the move and your phone isn’t picking up a 3G signal, web pages tend to load slowly. Opera Mini is a much better choice when bandwidth is limited because it uses gateway servers that compress pages before sending them to your phone. The result is lightning fast performance even when your phone is struggling to maintain a decent connection speed. Click here to download.
Evernote: It lifts up note-taking to another level. It offers up a whole load of advanced features, but wraps them up in an easy to use edge. You can use it to quickly take voice, text and image notes that the software will then index so you can easily search through them later.
Open Home: Make your phone yours. Open Web acts like the Window Blinds of Android, allowing you to re-skin the interface and tweak options Google never dreamt possible. Its available at a price of $4.
TasKiller: Its an foremost essential app and should have been bundled with the OS. Opening the app allows you to view all the open apps clogging up your phones memory and kill them in a single click, freeing up memory to speed up your phone. Its for free.
Locale: Grand Prize Winner at the Android Developer Challenge, Locale is software which provides a smarter way to control your phone’s settings. Whereas most phones allow you to create different profiles for work, home, office or outdoors, Locale let’s you create profiles that are changed according to your current location.
WaveSecure: Android is still a relatively young platform and one of the things that it’s currently missing is the ability to take control of your phone remotely to backup files, or to lock down and wipe data if it’s stolen. Apple offers its MobileMe service for the iPhone while Microsoft has its MyPhone offering, but Google currently has no similar service.
Dial Zero: Robotic corporate answering systems, meet your match. DialZero keeps an index of over 600 companies’ customer service numbers with explicit directions for how to cut through the automation and get a human, right off the bat.
Meebo: The problem with instant messaging (IM) is the number of different networks available and the lack of compatibility between them. If you’ve got a wide circle of friends then the chances are they’re not all on the same messaging network.
Doodle Droid: Keep the right side of your brain busy with this sophisticated painting app for Android. It offers 21 different brushes to play with, speed-sensitive opacity (slower is darker), and multiple undos for all those accidental swipes.
