Android apps for your new Android phone

Posted on Friday, January 21st, 2011 in Mobile by Nick

First off let me say that I am sorry for my inactivity with this blog and my postings the forum. I may of hit my laptop in rage and broke the hard drive under the keyboard, but I now have access to a computer daily, so that is only a minor problem now (if it happened). Anyways…

So I recently got a HTC Incredible (great phone) and now I’m an Android junky. I found that the following apps should be on every Android phone.

Lookout Security
With Android’s open goodness, the is a downside.Apps could be infected with malware and just waiting for you to download them so they can steal your information. Just recently over in China a trojan was found running around on Android phones.With Lookout Security, you can forget about that. Lookout runs in the background and scans all apps for malware. I find it the best security app for Android.

Cache Cleaner NG CC (for short) fixes another of Androids problems (that being how apps tend to save data and it starts to build up). CC can be set to run at certain times and delete that data. I h ave it run once a day and it generally removes about 29 megabytes from the internal storage and 6 from the SD card.

Barcode Scanner
QR codes are the means of quick travel in the Android universe. Find a app on the internet and just scan it to bring it up in the marketplace. Barcode Scanner does that without any frills.

Adobe Reader Android doesn’t come preloaded with a pdf reader….

File Manager
Android turns your SD card into a mess so navigating it can be a hassle. Your best bet is to use File Manager (another one of the no frills apps).
