Recommend me an Android App!

Post by Son_of_Shinobi » Sun Oct 05, 2014 5:56 pm

Ok, so having bought a Sony xperia M2 - I don't know what the best apps to have on it are, so would very appreciate any of your ideas - just a brief descrption of the App and Name, and cost if it's not free.

I currently have the following (some keep me occupied, some less so)

Tinder
Whatsapp
Angry Birds
Shazam
Ringdroid

Yeah, limited :D

So, what can/do you suggest? Hit me up and I'll have a look and see if I likey, likey!

Thanks

Slay...

Best game ever. Yes it aint free!

Buy it and never regret it.

I bought it years ago on my old pocketpc pda, then continued on my win phone 5/6 machine.

Only thing I missed when I went android. Then it was released so I bought it again!

Also Lux deluxe, A risk clone I found when I went mac for a few years. Do not think it has been released yet but I have the beta. Maybe try sign up at the sillysoft site for it? Looks to be ad based with pay to remove ads.

Worth getting a humble bundle sometimes when it's android too if there is anything you like. Got the sega one recently. (you missed it now, sorry!)

Flipboard - Fantastic bog read, catch up on technology and science news.

TuneInRadio - Like to listen to a bit of Talksport when washing up/cooking, easiest way to get in on Android.

FitNotes - If you go to do the Gym or do regular exercise, you can log in a day session and build up a history over time...even makes nice little graphs.

Alarm Clock Xtreme - Never knew there was so many ways to set an Alarm clock, I find answering maths questions before the alarm will stop is a great way to get me up in the morning...I used to hit snooze far too often.

In terms of themes and keyboards, I have disabled all the Samsung stuff on my S4 and downloaded all the native Google ones, works a lot better for me.

If you have music on your Android to generate levels, Beat Hazard Ultra is good. Forgot to post that as its on my phone, I don't use my tablet as an mp3 player. Listen to music you like while shooting stuff. Great controls too. Try the demo if nothing else.

Spelltower is my toilet game of choice.

Cheers guys, keep 'em coming.

Thanks IronMaidenRule - both Flipboard and Alarm Clock Xtreme sound like the kinda thing I'd use.
