  3. 3. Here is my Top 20 Android Apps guide . . . I was originally going to sell this PDF for $47! I decided to give it away :) Before we get into our PDF - I wanted to share something time sensitive with you . . . "Find The Most Profitable Mobile And App Campaigns Lightening Fast With This Covert Spy Tool And Swiping What Works..."

I was a bit suspicious of it being spyware at first, but an antivirus scan proved me false.” “I very much liked the user interface, and spent the first night experimenting the features as if its going to be my most utilized tool. Woke up the next morning, and all data was wiped out. Luckily, it was still in Google. Synchronization was easy to get back on track. Later on, it duplicated each task in Google!!! This is the second tasks tool that I try, and ends with the same problem. I am assuming that the bug is in the software and not in my Google account! Had to uninstal.”© 2012, All rights reserved.
  5. 5. “This is an essential productivity app for all android smartphones. Love the minimal design. Helps keep me get through the day since I usually forget things.” Souce: 2.

  6. 6. “Good, but could be better feature wise. Needs more users to compete with something like Instagram. That being said a good, social photo sharing app for Android” ~ Ben “good app, but a little heavy on my galaxys…”~ Ario “Love it. Use it daily to share pictures with my daughters dad on fb who lives in a different state =D” ~ Jenna Source: 3. Amazon MP3 - This puts in together the AMAzon MP3 store and Amazon Cloud Player.

Other review: What people are saying: “Stops playing after current song when screen off”© 2012, All rights reserved.
  7. 7. “I like this app, but for some reason it randomly stops playing after a song finishes when the screen is off, as soon as you turn the screen on, it starts playing the next song. Very frustrating when trying to stream some tunes for a long drive, or really anywhere. I assume what is happening is when the song stops, the device goes into deep sleep mode before the cloud player decides to wake up and start playing the next song. For reference I am on a 8.9" Galaxy Tab LTE. Any fix?” ~ James “This app is amazing for streaming music on 3g. Since it uploads music at the quality of your choosing, then compress it to a lower quality (aka 64kbps with Media Monkey) it Caches music, and downloads ahead, so its gapless... Idk why everyone hates this app... ive yet to have a single problem with it... lol people on here be trippin.~ Derrick” Source: 4. AirDroid - This free app allows you to "wirelessly manage and control your Android device from a web browser Over-The-Air".

  8. 8. Checkout this AirDroid feature walktrough (video): Other review: What people are saying: "This works great! Now if I could only run the phone apps from here it would be even better. Great app though!" “I had difficulty trying to use my USB cable to download phone photos from my Samsung phone to my PC. I was not successful. I discovered Airdroid, installed it, and it worked right away and is very intuitive and easy to use, even for a geezer newbie! Thank you Sand Studio for an awesome tool!” “I love the concept of having a desktop like scheme that can control your phone from your computer, but unfortunately slow file transfer speeds prevent this app from being my top choice. WiFi Transfer Pro transfers files much faster than Air Droid. But AirDroid is truly unique in your ability to review your phone book (with all photos), send and read all your text messages, etc. Looking forward to future upgrades of this app!” Source: 5. SwiftKey X Keyboard - With this app, you can have a better way of typing text as it replaces your ordinary touchscreen keyboard with this app that is powered by "smarter natural language technology".

  9. 9. Checkout the app’s features here (in video): Other review: android-keyboard/ What people are saying: “I wish there were more levels of autocorrect, including option to turn off. I like having suggestions, but sometimes I want to type words that arent in the database, and this dang thing wont let me type them bc it keeps autocorrecting!! I appreciate being able to activate both English and Spanish kbs at same. time, though!!” “I must admit, ICS 4.0 has a really accurate keyboard but SwiftKey is just so much better than it. Predictions are extremely powerful autocorrect is mostly right. Excellence in everyway possible. Samsung Galaxy S 2 running CM9 experimental.” “Takes some time for the app to learn you, if you will, but fantastic once it does. For those with the keyboard stuck: swipe down to dismiss.” Source:© 2012, All rights reserved.
  10. 10. 6. Skitch - an app that allows you to annotate, edit and save photos and scribble with your android device. With this app, drawing attention to your images has been a lot easier now. Other capabilities of this app include zoom and crop images, create smooth, lines, and scribbles to explain whats with the image, insert text using a special high-contrast coloring scheme for better readability. Other reviews: What other people are saying: Great program. Need full-resolution share option, though! This isnt an iPhone, it can handle it! The best android drawing app by far. I use it every day and absolutely adore it! My online suggestion is too add it to the apple app store! Its one good idea terribly executed. There is no "normal" saving system. You are always one "back key" away from losing all your work (what happened to me way more than Im willing to accept. Its quite frustrating losing a 5 minutes sketch because you receive a phone call or checked a text message. Source:© 2012, All rights reserved.

  12. 12. What people are saying: “Nice, would be great if you use apps like WhatsApp and Viber through it though. Select device option maybe? And convince the apps the LAN is 3g?” “Problem free installation on my Vista PC and Samsung Galaxy S. Seems to be well made, looks good and obviously has a lot of potential, but I dont have a Facebook account and have no intention of opening one, so I havent gone any further.” “Good idea, but bad start... Requires facebook account to enter the site. Requests abusive access to facebook account data. When trying to sync the phone gives the error "Server not responding".” Source:© 2012, All rights reserved.

  15. 15. What people are saying: “Great app, and swapped from Weather Channel for this, but might have to go back as widget has stopped working since upgrade. Motorola XOOM on 3.2” “App was working just fine. Then after an update it would take forever to load. On a second update they fixed that. Now after the last update, the widget is not working at all. Cant even get it to be shown on the screen” “The last updates made this app totally worthless. It doesnt respond, freuently doesnt update the widget and you cannot quit it anymore by tapping the back button. If no update fixing these issues comes rather quickly this app will be uninstalled! Great now it doesnt even load the bloody widget!” Source:© 2012, All rights reserved.
  16. 16. 10. HD Widgets - HD widgets is an app that showcases a dozen of widget current time, current weather, weather forecast, and utility switches.

But one problem is that I recently purchased a Galaxy Note and the clock does not work at all. Please fix! Could be my phone but I doubt it.”© 2012, All rights reserved.
  17. 17. “Works great with tablets as well. Many options to select from. Its almost impossible to not find the right combination/match for your phone theme and wallpaper you might be using.

  19. 19. review/ What people are saying: “Every update keeps getting better (except when video uploads were removed, but now back). I love instant upload and being able to share with my circles from my phone. The only thing I really hope for is more fluid post updates and comments to show (like the web version). Im not sure how challenging this is from a mobile app perspective but if anyone can do it, Google can!” “I LOVE Android! I LOVE this Social Network! Its my choice over FB and all others. I really want to love this app, but hangouts and other features are simply NOT working properly. I was able to perform a hangouts with my sister on her LG MyTouch 4G but was not able to connect at all with another family member who was using a pc. HTC EVO 3D.” “Great app, especially the messenger and hangouts. But why would you force us to use the apps photo selector when we have a gallery app. The google+ photo selector is AWFUL! Please give us an option which for which app we use to select photos from. Galaxy Nexus” Source:© 2012, All rights reserved.
  20. 20. 13. Google Maps - this app, considered by People as an ultimate map guide, this app features Navigation with free voice-guided GPS navigation system; Places that allows you to find, rate, and get recommendations for places; and Latitude, which allows you to checkout friends on the map and check in at places. What people are saying: “Best tool for everything map, location, and exploration. There maybe an expensive alternative for specialized tasks or small things you could add (see add-ons for some) but come on totally free pretty accurate voice turn by turn and street level navigation in one package without obtrusive ads and at least warns when any sensitive data may be used is 5 star in my book.” “There is NO other mobile navigation app better than this. Those permissions just so happen to be beneficial to your experience with this. Stop bitching and be greatful you indecisive a holes.” “There may be other GPS services that are better, but Maps is a great free service. I use it all the time and it hasnt failed me yet. Thank you Google!” Source:© 2012, All rights reserved.

You can create and edit documents and updates appear to your collaborators; you can also upload file and convert it into a Google document. What people are saying: “I love Google Docs, but this App is a shame. It adds minimal advantage over just editing your Docs in a browser. I have some very complicated spreadsheets that I really want good mobile editing ability on and this just doesnt cut it :( Please Google, take some time and make this app actually do some of the interface grunt work, either that or improve the heck out of your mobile docs site!” “New document from photo isnt working, and when I try to take a picture after installing it, the camera app wont load. I uninstalled and the camera worked fine. Reinstalled and it broke again. Also, Im hoping we get the ability to edit styles soon.” “Sorry to say, but the current interface is just terrible for anything but viewing documents. Copy one line at a time. No support fo arrow keys. Cant select-and-cut text. Keyboard keeps hiding while Im typing or navigating. We really need a tablet-optimized google doc and spreadsheet program, but this is not (yet) it.” Source:© 2012, All rights reserved.
  22. 22. 15. Google Music – this free app lets you shop music on Android Market and listen instantly whenever, wherever you like.

  23. 23. “There are a lot of people providing bad feedback and only a small margin of them actually provide appropriate bad feedback. Some of you have older phones that may not be fast enough or up to date to handle it. Some expect features that are there but they cant get them on their type of phone. (i have more than just list view). Which is a problem for the type of manufacturer and not the app. My wife has the driod global 2 and I have HTC thunderbolt and there are differences. Grow up.” “This would be the BEST music player if it had the ability to queue songs like spotify. I think a lot more people would use this. Also, sometimes on shuffle, when the song ends it doesnt go to the next song automatically, so I have to press next. Good built in equalizer. Also, for the songs that dont have a known artist but you know what artist made them: you should be able to place them in the artists folder, similar to playlists. This would ultimately fix the unknown artist issue!!! Regards. Galnexus” “Googles done it again. Now out of beta! Runs perfect on my xperia play. Should be androids default music player. Thanx Google :D” Source:© 2012, All rights reserved.

Completely redundant.” Source:© 2012, All rights reserved.

  26. 26. “HTC Hero - I just installed this app and the picture is fantastic and the sound is great but they dont sync up. It is impossible to watch this way. I love Netflix and this is such a cool app. Please resolve the sync problem and you will definitely get 5 stars!” “I was thrilled to find this on the market. However, I am a country girl and sadly the signal sucks... thus so does this app! Would be nice if they would give the option to reduce the graphics for slower connections!!” Source: 18.

What people are saying: “Nice app. A few force closes...some images dont match w/song and/or artist...needs Google+ integration...with Facebook forcing the stupid timeline on people, I know a ton of people who are defecting to G+ who wont be able to use this app anymore.” “They claim they have fixed the issues causing constant crashing on Galaxy Nexus, but this is a lie. Still crashes on Galaxy Nexus running Android 4.0 (ICS). Dont waste your time. The developers obviously are not interested in fixing it.” “I like very much that the app can link to my Foursquare (and Facebook) accounts, as you can tag songs from where you are..trés cool...Would like to see what else can be done with it.. Update 4 January: Ok for whatever reason, I cant post anymore with the app...I hit the post icon, and it just does nothing...cant post to Foursquare nor can I post to Facebook...what the hell.. I am using it on my Samsung Galaxy S GT-I9000.” Source:© 2012, All rights reserved.

While those apps showed $210, Hipmunk consistently showed $347 for the same exact flight. I dont know where the app accesses the prices from but I was disappointed that the difference in price was so drastic. I might try it out a little longer but if this keeps happening, I will have to uninstall Hipmunk” “After only 1 use hipmunk will quickly become an app of choice. very straightforward interface that makes it easy to compare costs” “Not only is the online site the most ingenius solution to multiple searches the mobile version does the same and helps you save searches to complete at your desk if needed. So cute and clean.”© 2012, All rights reserved.

With this app, you can automatically scan product barcode, see product highlights, and select better alternatives. What people are saying: “Its important to know what Ingredients? are in the foods you eat. They responded within the day adding a product they didnt know, it was kind of cool because I was the 1 that gave the information with my cellphone camera. Love the fact that they suggest healthier alternatives to whatever food you scan.” “This is one of my favorite apps.....IF it would work right. It locks up and crashes alot. It works great for the first scan afterwards, its all down hill from there until I have to remove battery from phone. I still use it, but would love it to work correctly. Fix problems and youve got youselves 5 stars! Samsung Android.”© 2012, All rights reserved.
