My favorite Android Apps

Wednesday, November 9th 2011


Even though I've had a smartphone for more than a year now, I still find myself astonished daily at the technology available in my phone. It's such a small device, and compared to anything I had as a kid, it's like the superhero of electronics - there's nothing it can't do.

I'm constantly trying to push what I'm able to do with my phone, whether it's streaming music off my home network into a set of small speakers in the kitchen, or using the phone as a remote control when I'm watching a movie. But some apps are more useful than others, and I'd like to share my favorites.

I do love Llama. The silly thing is even easier than I originally thought. I love that I can just add new locations to the Silent profile.

I'm curious about OurGroceries. I use GroceryIQ and it also syncs. It works fine, so maybe I'm not sure if I want to play with another one yet.

I love WordFued. Did you try the Scrabble app? I still love WordFued more.

Scrabble is really really slow on Android. I wrote a big article about Scrabble, Wordfeud, and Words with Friends and their plusses and minuses.
