I don't know if I have a favorite Android app, since I don't use my Android tablet very often, but I'm astonished by Shazzam. (It's an app that recognizes songs playing through the speakers).

SoundHound is pretty cool.

The ones I use the most are the Kindle app and YouVersion.

rsync backup with firewall Knock Operator (if you are using a port knocker).

The rsync backup utility has saved my *** more than once when flashing new ROMs. Its also great for distributing backups across multiple devices and computers. Also a really easy way to share photos to computer without either plugging in or going through google to get the photos.

SwiFTP for me. No longer do I have to use a wire in order to transfer my files across the PC and the phone.

opera mini


ak notepad (nice and simple, can be converted to .txt files or shared)


screen filter (real battery and eye saver, a brightness app which allows setting of multiple brightness toggle widgets, also allows for darker than default settings provide)


sms popup (plenty of options for alternative 'messages' notifications)


msn mercury free (highly configurable messenger, which also save conversation history to sd card)


cool reader (ebook reader with theme options etc)


astro file manager (good for managing those files, and doing a backup of installed apps)

Reddit News - It's no AlienBlue, but it's the best available on Android
Chrome (beta) - This should be the stock browser
Pocket - My "DVR" for the web
Flipboard (beta) - My favorite app on the iPad, now available for Android!

I must agree with that, it's pretty good. I have also been abusing Airdroid recently as I can never find a USB cable, regardless of how many I have. Additionally, Solid Explorer is easily the most aesthetically pleasing file manager I've seen - dual pane with drag and drop too IIRC.

EDIT: Might have been lying about the drag and drop...

Ubuntu One...

It's very NICE to maintain "non-sensitive" files and information that I can access from laptop or phone.... where ever and every where.

I say non-sensitive because I just don't trust any cloud with that sort of information.

the best APP on the entire google play market place is Splashtop.. Only wish it had Linux support.



Chrome (beta) - This should be the stock browser

Just found a great app for notes and organising.

Yeah Evernote is pretty good, though I tend not to want all the features on my phone.

That said, it also has a web interface and official OSX and Windows clients. There is also NixNote (formerly NeverNote?) for Linux, though I've always just used the web client on Linux.

I used to use Catch as well, but haven't for a while. IIRC they kept adding features, where before it was all nice and simple. I just seem to flit between stuff. I currently have a bit of a SimpleNote / Dropbox / Epistle / Resoph bodge going on.

EDIT: @LMP900 - Reddit Sync is a nice one I've stumbled upon more recently.

NewsRob is a good RSS reader when you have a lot of feeds (and it syncs with Google Reader).

RealCalc is a good calculator that does RPN. Check out Addi if you need something a little more powerful (and Matlab compatible) ^_^

Ubuntu One for sync.

I can't decide between Aldiko or FBReader; they're both good book readers, but sometimes a book will work better in one or the other.

Aedict Japanese-English dictionary. Not everybody needs it, but if you do, you really need it.

QuickPic for picture browsing

Winamp for music

3G Watchdog to make sure I don't bust my data :S

Dropbox

Solid Explorer

Opera Mini


That's pretty much what I always install after a phone reset or installing a custom rom.

When it comes to apostrophes, why would you need an app for that? Learn to do it correctly, and then do so. Geez. How lazy are people these days anyhow...

Favorite apps for me include Better Terminal Emulator Pro, a good SFTP app, and Angry Birds. Oh, yeah, and SoundHound ftw!

I don't use my phone for a lot as I'm usually near a computer, but the most common programs I use are my bank's app, Facebook, Gmail, and Sudoku Plus.
