10 Of The Best Android Apps

The Android Market may not be as chock-a-block with apps as the Apple App store, but with over 50,000 applications for download it’s still pretty easy to get overwhelmed by the sheer number of apps on offer. To steer you in the right direction we decided to round up 10 of our favourites.

We’ve tried to avoid just listing the most obvious ones such as Facebook and Twidroid, and sadly BeebPlayer - one of our favourites – is no longer available, but we think this list still contains many gems.

We’ve also included the relevant QR Code (two-dimensional barcode) next to each screen grab. This links to each app in the Android Market when you scan it with the camera on your Android phone using the ZXing Barcode Scanner app.

Obviously there are plenty of other great apps out there, so feel free to add your own suggestions in the comments section.

I did not load this app because it wants access to things that should be none of its business. eg,Device and App History,Contacts and Caledar,Photo and media files, Wi fi connection info. If someone can explain why it needs this access I might reconsider.

What annoys me is this websites tactic of creating more hits by spreading out a short article over many pages to generate more hits- shameful. At the very least give the option to see all of the bits on a single page.

All apps want personal information, that's just the way it is these days. Marketing tools I guess and hopefully not snooping.
