I know everybody likes to see their good applications list grow every week so I’ll make sure you never run out of new apps to try :
Google Maps :
I am sure that some of you are wondering why I am talking about this stock app right now. Don’t worry it is perfectly normal, it’s just in case you missed Google’s big announcement (which you can see on the video above) that Maps is going full 3D and offline like most Google apps do these times. Get the latest version from the link below !
From Developer : Download the latest version of Google Maps and you’ll never need to carry a map with you again !
GO Backup :
There is a lot of applications out there to make backups of different things on your phone but GO Backup backups all it can ! If some of you have used Titanium Backup’s free version before, I highly recommend to change for this app as it can backup your apps if you are rooted AND it gets rid of the annoying installation interface when you restore them !
From Developer : Backup all your contacts,messages and apps. Stable,fast,simple and totally free. Official backup app developed by GO Dev team.
I have tried many apps that offer the same free calls & messages service and I have to say that LINE really stands out. When using it, you are presented with a beautiful interface following the current style of android apps and the quality of the calls even with an edge connection really impressed me.
From Developer : Stay in touch with your friends and family using LINE. LINE has more than 40 million users worldwide ! As a fast and light messenger that provides free messaging and voice calls, LINE has been ranked no. 1 in the free app category in Japan, Singapore, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Thailand, Malaysia, Macau, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Bahrain, United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Jordan, Israel, Switzerland and Turkey.
PlayerPro DSP Pack :
I know for a fact that I am not the only one to have switched from the stock Froyo (Android 2.2) music player to PlayerPro. For those of you who are troubled by the lack of digital sound processing on Froyo, BlastOn have outed a pack to correct that. It is said that this pack might even allow your phone to play audio files it didn’t recognize before. It is downloadable either through the app or directly on the Play Store by following the link below.
From Developer : The ultimate music player for Android. PlayerPro DSP pack is a free digital sound processing plugin for PlayerPro. PlayerPro is an advanced music player for Android devices (2.0++). The ultimate music player for Android.
Schoener Fernsehen :
This brand new online TV app is without a doubt the best one on the Play Store. It allows you to watch Live TV of course but it comes with many more features such as the ability to set an alarm for your favorite TV shows or to create your own wishlist and be reminded when one of your favorites is coming. If you download the Online TV Recorder from the same developers, you’ll be able to record the shows you love in case you can’t watch them live.
From Developer : Our App allows you to watch live TV online through your mobile or tablet device ! The Schoener Fernsehen App allows you to watch live TV online through your cellphone or tablet device !
Glassboard is a way of making your social networking activities private. What I mean by that is that you can instantly share messages or any kind of media with a group made of your closest friends without every acquaintance of yours seeing it. Posts will only be visible to the people you have invited to your board. The idea is pretty good and the app is really enjoyable but I’m not sure it’s enough to get people off Facebook.
From Developer : Glassboard is the easiest and fastest way to share messages, photos, and videos with small groups (or ‘boards’ as we call them). When you send a message to a board, it shows immediately on everyone’s phones, so you’ll always be on the same page.
Official UEFA EURO 2012 app :
The 2012 European Soccer cup has begun so the Union of European Football Associations decided it would be a good thing to make an app so we wouldn’t miss anything. I have to admit that this app is pretty well made. You’ll find a calendar there with the upcoming encounters and there is also a Video Centre where you will be able to see the best moments in every game. A live news feed is also included to keep you updated on the results.
From Developer : The official UEFA EURO 2012 app gives you access to the final tournament of the 14th UEFA European Football Championship. It will be held in Poland and Ukraine from 8 June to 1 July 2012.
The weird thing about this app is that it is developed by Microsoft but it’s not supposed to come out on Windows phones… Once you’ve gotten over this weird fact and you try the app, you will ll be pleasantly surprised. It works really well and everything you ask it to do, it will do smoothly without you even noticing it. There are plenty of different options built in and even after toying around with the app for a few days, you will discover new features that could change your way of doing things on your smartphone. If you’re not afraid o login with Facebook then try this app right now !
