Ok, you know the drill. The top ten (10) android apps. Not everyone will think these are the best or greatest Android application, but hey, have to start somewhere. If you have an issue, with my list, let me know. It normally takes a bit of time and revision before the list settles in.
Starting at No 10
This app is basically a task manager for Android. The big win here is not only killing that rouge app, but force clean up of memory when you are about to run that hard core 3D game you just downloaded.
This cool little app lets you stream music while showing the lyrics of songs that are played. It also support Youtube, Yahoo music, Last.fm and more. Here is the crazy thing, its translates lyrics! Up to 40+ languages.
5. Layar 3.0
Wondering when I would add my augmented reality app? Here it is. Layar is like most other discovery AR apps, but this is best so far. With an API, people can add 3D information over the video scene. Nice. I have a feeling Layar will continue to keep the lead, so it makes the top 10
4. Car Locator
Although there are many other AR apps like Car Locator, I have this as number 10 because its a good example of a simple 1 function AR app. Now can you get the same thing done using a standard map, yes, but most AR app are about cool then uniquely practical.
3. Last.fm Android
This is a bit like Pandora, but instead of matching based on music qualities, it matches based on the songs your friends listen to or the Last.fm population in general. You can skip any song and find out about concert dates, too.
2. Qik – Share Live Video
Provides real time streaming video from your iphone to a web page where anyone can see it. (If you set the permissions as such). Also, if the phone cannot get a connection, it will hold the video till it does. Cool points for being able to see the video on the iphone. More here.
1. Google Voice
Again, I’m SURE I’m sure I will get debate on this, but Google Voice basically extends the phone beyond just a cell phone, beyond just a smart phone.
