PermaLink My Android App List01/03/2011
Interesting how many apps you end up accumulating.  I've had an Android phone for less than a year and I'm out of space on my phone because I keep over 40 apps on it and Motorola has decided that 2.1 is the end of the line for the lowly Cliq :-P

List follows after the jump...

System Utility Apps:

  • Advanced Task Killer - I know you're not supposed to need to kill apps off, but the phone does lag when it has to spend a few moments to do this
  • EStrong File Manager - great for viewing files or deleting downloads
  • Google Places/Latitude/Voice/Skymap/Layar - Google experiments
  • Lookout - remote device location and wipe (somewhat redundant if you have a Motoblur phone but Motoblur causes lots of lagging)
  • FoxFi - tethering app that doesn't require root
  • Phone Info - lets you turn off 4G radio to save batteries

Data Management Apps:
  • aCar - car maintenance/mileage tracking
  • FlightView - track flight arrival/departure times
  • HeartPal - blood pressure tracking
  • iStockManager - TD Ameritrade's official app
  • Key Ring Reward Cards - so you don't have to carry all those stupid shopping discount cards with you all the time
  • Money Split - best tip calculator/splitter I've found where you only have to punch in the total bill
  • Pulse - one of the best RSS news readers
  • Square - process credit card transactions on your phone
  • Stock Alert - stock tracking app
  • ShopSavvy - barcode reader
  • SportsTracker (and Endomondo Sports Tracker) - track your workout and ties to a Zephyr's HxM bluetooth heart rate monitor
  • Torque - used with a bluetooth OBD-II reader to look at check engine codes and monitor car performance
  • WeatherBug - hourly weather forecasts
  • Zillow - real estate pricing info
  • Fring - unify all your IM and also does SIP outgoing calls

Programming Apps
  • aLogcat - display device logs w/o hooking it to Eclipse
  • androidVNC - VNC viewer
  • connectBot - SSH terminal
  • NeoRouter - client for Neorouter VPN solution
  • OSMonitor - show tasks and network state

Music:
  • 3 (Cubed) - music player

  • Shazam - tells you what music is playing in your surrounding environment
  • Slacker - network music player w/ more variety

Food:
  • Epicurious - recipes
  • Urbanspoon - restaurant finder
  • Yelp - restaurant reviews

Entertainment:
  • Angry Birds Holidays - yep, I still don't understand why people like this game, but it works on the Cliq w/ 2.1
  • Armored Strike - my addictive game, but doesn't work on the Cliq w/ 2.1 because Motorola screwed up the update :-P
  • Fishin' 2 Go - when the weather is too crappy
  • DroidEmuLite - for those older SNES/GB/MAME games
  • Tank Recon 3D - battlezone like for the people that remember it
  • VirtualTenho - japanese mah jong game that's close to chinese style
  • USA TV Droid - local TV listings

Navigation:
