Monday Poll: Must Have Android Apps Of The Last Month Are?

It has been a month or so since we last asked you what your current app obsessions were.  Since that time, we have seen a number of impressive apps, like A.I. Type keyboard (that I personally can’t get enough of), HD Widgets for tablets, return of ESPN’s fantasy football app, new Swype, SimplePLAY’s song swiping, and so many more.  Anything in particular though, that you just can’t seem to get enough of?  Discover an older app that you wish you had known about from the beginning?  Maybe an app that we haven’t covered at all?  Let us know!

    I’ve been using Nemus Launcher on my Droid1(CM7.1 nightlies) recently. Not a well known Launcher and lacking in a lot of the customization LP or ADW has, but it’s definitely smoother.

    I cannot, for the life of me, understand why people like AI Type. I used it once, it didn’t work very well (predictions and autocorrect were awful), and then I just tried using the latest version and it was just as bad.

    SwiftKey X all the way. (Though frankly I’ve been using Swype more than usual lately.)

      In terms of prediction, Swiftkey isn’t really better either.

    • Launcher Pro is so 2010, Go Launcher is the now.

  • My favorite is actually a new version of a Verizon crapware app called “We Don’t Like Releasing Products People Want”.  It’s amazing.

    Kellex, I love how you sold out and put a TMOBILE ad on a verizon orientated website.  I am going to another website for my news.

      really dude leave you dont pay for this site do you what a loser

        he must have missed the iphone ads not long ago huh?

    • Yes Kellex is such a greedy bastard that he spent money earned by this site to buy gifts for the followers of the website. How dare he!

      And it’s such a good thing that running a website is free!


    LauncherPro sucks balls. When was the last time it was updated?

      Last year maybe.. I wish I hadn’t paid for it as I moved to GO soon after.

    A.I type, its one of the coolest keyboards i have ever used

    • dffx

      I don’t see how people like AI Type. It’s text prediction is AWFUL, only slightly better than TouchPal, and it doesn’t have anything on SwiftKey. Even Swype, after you’ve used it for a bit, does a significantly better job at text prediction and autocorrect than AI Type ever has in the time I’ve used it.

        Try the latest version, it truly AMAZING!!!!

  • Sn1p3r6992

    I have tried almost every single launcher on the market. And I love the features of ADW EX and go launcher and so on……But none are as stable and fast one ANY of my phones as Launcher Pro. I almost hate it at times because I miss the customizations of ADW.

    Yes!  I have original Moto Droid with “Missed Call” by Anno.  Can’t get it on the Droid3.  Have found nothing that works as well or like it.  Hoping they will write one for the Bionic soon.

    I really like the much-needed functionality of AutomateIt Pro. It can be configured to use a huge selection of trigger events to perform actions on your phone. I have it turning the many volume streams up or down depending on the time of day, and using GPS to determine whether I’m at the library (turn volume down), and if my mom calls and the volume is down it turns it up. It now automatically turns on GPS and Bluetooth when it’s in the car dock. Perhaps the most fun thing to demonstrate to my friends is using the proximity detector to turn the speakerphone off when the phone is near my face, but to turn it back on when I move it away. You can even set up composite triggers with more than one trigger, with AND/OR logic to perform composite actions (these composite triggers/actions are the difference between the FREE and the $1.50 PRO version). The free version allows one trigger to perform one action, but I found the Pro version to be well worth a buck and a half. It does a LOT more than I have detailed here, this is just what I have learned how to do.

    When I upgraded from an OG Droid to a Droid 3, there was a difference in sound stream levels (15 levels vs. only 7) that made my volume rule only turn the volume up halfway. The developer (Musikant) was very responsive and fixed this issue in the next release in just a couple of days.

  • Thank you so much for providing individuals with such a terrific opportunity to read articles and blog posts from here. It’s always so beneficial and also full of a lot of fun for me and my office friends to search your blog on the least three times a week to learn the latest tips you will have.

  • For me: Ripple lock, Go Launcher EX and A.I. Type.

  • There are 4 must have apps that are not on by default on most peoples phones like gTalk etc…
