I am frequently asked which Android Market apps are a must have for me and while it varies, today I am sharing the top Android apps that I absolutely must have on my phone.
Amazon Kindle- I am frequently required to read different books for class or I just need to get away from it all with a good book. Thanks to Amazon’s Android Kindle app I can! Not only can I enjoy reading my favorite books KG can also read to occupy herself when we’re waiting at the doctor’s office. With access to over 900,000+ books available online through the Kindle Store and hundreds available for free, I never run out things to read! Amazon Whispersync automatically syncs your last page read, bookmarks, notes, and highlights across devices (including Kindle), so you can pick up where you left off on another device.
Taskos–Are you a to-do list person like I am? If so, you will love Taskos. Taskos allows you to add tasks by speaking directly to Droid and with Taskos to you can add, edit or delete tasks, share them with your friends, write notes, set alerts and even make calls! Whew! That’s a lot for a little app! Taskos has also enabled your ability to share tasks via Email or SMS, now offers full Google task sync with multiple lists, multiple accounts, a home screen widget, customized categories, improved sorting, swipe completed tasks, shake to remove tasks, auto-complete, quick edit of tasks information and more!
Google Maps Navigation–I am often traveling to and from conferences, family visits, and more, so having easy navigation through unknown territory is a must! With Google Maps I am able to access free-voice-guided GPS, find my friends on my map, and find local Places that might interest me while traveling. With Google’s newest update Google Maps Navigation 5.7 you can also find public transportation routes in the cities that you are in, making catching that bus to the museum on time so much easier!
Evernote–While at client meetings I need an app that will allow me to take detailed (or short-hand) notes straight from whatever technological device I have with me and that is most often my phone. With Evernote I can take the note straight on my Droid X and it will automatically sync with the web app so I can easily edit from home. This allows me to continue working on my notes or thoughts from a meeting without having to download or email myself that information. As their website states: ‘Evernote for Android lets you capture your ideas, experiences, and inspirations as they happen, wherever you find yourself’.
Those are my Top 5 Android apps I can survive without…what are yours?
