Android App Anthology

Reading Carpe's thread asking for app recommendations, I figured that since a lot of us on here have android devices, it might be cool to have a thread for discussing apps we've recently tested out...

So feel free to post your comments about any android app (free or paid) - & stick a google play link in there somewhere if you're feeling fancy :laugh:

:laugh:

I'll start - The latest apps I've discovered are :

DashClock
It's a replacement lockscreen app that can be configured to display a lot of different information (just download the appropriate plugins) - missed calls/sms/emails, weather, song identification link, battery info, & more.

Air Droid
Very useful if you've got a wifi network - lets you connect your android device to your pc & control it from there : file transfers, take screenshots, read messages, etc
Incredibly useful if you're stuck at a desk like me :laugh:
Very cool

You using the stock launcher on your nexus or a different one ?
I changed pretty quick to Nova, since the stock one is pretty basic

Nova + teslaunread + missedit (for whatsapp notification badges) + hd wigets (using colourform UI for clock/weather)

I think the real question here is: Would installing all of that make my Candy Crush run any better? :laugh:

I play with loads and loads of stuff. The launcher Neel mentioned is my best ever find and just to make it even more awesome its not available to the french :lol1: :lol1: :lol1: :lol1: :lol1: Candy crush is a great game if you are five or under. I also recommend Blackmart its a play store/ market alternative but does not charge for any app (ok less than 5% dont work or start asking for your code but the rest work fine)

I made the mistake of listening to athe (once) & installed blackmart : IMO, it's pretty dodgy & people should stay clear (especially since it requires root)
