Posted By Kate Wilson on September 14th, 2011

The iOS platform seems to be having all the media attention these days, and the huge headway made by Android is not getting the attention it deserves. With more than 250,000 apps in the market for Android phones and tablets the number are a bit less than the total number of iPhone apps (counting 425,000 and increasing), in any case there is an Android app to suit almost any purpose.

The long term potential of Android cannot be underestimated and there are some fine applications present in the apps market; you can personalize your Android phone with the following:

Urbanspoon – If you require restaurant suggestion for your current location, the Urbanspoon app is a great resource to have. All you need to do is type the attributes of the food you are looking for and the app will give you a list of recommendations. For example, the query terms ‘bristo’ or ‘moderate price’ can yield a list of restaurants providing food in that category. You also get map-based directions along with food reviews and contact information for each food establishment that the app recommends. This Anroid application is free.

Google Search – It helps in saving a lot of time, and the voice search functionality has made it even simplier and easy to use. All you have to do is speak what you are searching for and the results will be displayed within seconds. It is now easy to search Wikipedia or a retailer at a given location. The application is absolutely free. Google Maps are also there to help you. It provides turn-by-turn instructions for your navigation and touring queries. If used on other platforms, it would cost around 10 dollars.

Evernote – This app can easily synchronize your Android with your personal computer and can work as a personal assistant. It displays the notes, photos and voice memos taken by the smartphone when you open the synchronized PC and click Evernote. At $45, an unlimited amount of information can be stored and the free version also stores a fair amount of information.

Google Sky Map – Celestial bodies are often invisible when viewed with the naked eye, but Google Sky Map can reveal them, even in broad daylight. It is one of the most fun-filled Adnroid applications, it can name almost any celestial body in the sky when you point the phone towards it. Thus, the sky map is used for celestial labeling, research and discovery of planets, stars and constellations.

Slacker – for getting catalogue on songs, slacker is highly useful. You can also download your favorite songs with the help of the application and listen to them offline. The trial is free, but $4 is required for monthly usage.

FX Camera – Provides filters and tools for editing the photos and sharing them on Facebook.

Remotedroid – The use of this application can convert the phone into a mouse and a wireless track-pad. The tiny keyboard may not be suitable for inputting lots of text, but if the PC lacks a track-pad or mouse, this application can make your day. The application is absolutely free.

Cardio-trainer – This fitness centric application can track your calorie intake and consumption and can also track and manage your fitness regimen. It is better than most fitness regimen apps found either on Symbian or iOS platforms and comes free of cost. The music management toll gives fresh fitness tunes each time it is used.

Soundhound – One of the best showoff apps on the Android market, it can recognize any song when you hum it and finds lyrics and videos of the song on Youtube. The free version allows you to identify 5 songs a month while at $5/pm an unlimited number of songs can be identified.

Google Shopper – Another useful application which saves many dollars by providing better prices while Shopping online or a store near your location. All you need is to scan the bar code. When the scan does not work, speaking the name of the products also show results.
