Three Great Google Android Apps
There are many apps (applications) that you can download through the “market” icon of your G1 Android Phone. This list can help guide you as to which apps you might want to download.
1. Quickpedia – This is a free app that lets the user browse Wikipedia on the Google Android phone. Viewing Wikipedia pages with this app is easier than attempting to view them without it, as the app optimizes the pages for the Android phone?s small display screen. You can also use the Quickpedia to search for articles that might interest you. With its easy-to-navigate user interface, browsing Wikipedia becomes a breeze. The app also lets the user save the text of the Wiki to the phone’s SD(secure digital card, or memory card). You can use its “nearby” feature to find Wikipedia articles about places near you. You can also find out what other Quickpedia users are looking for, by using the “popular” tab.
2. Ringdroid – This was one of the first batch of apps to be released for the T-Mobile G1 phone. It lets users create ring tones from songs they already have on their phones. A user can also choose to record his own sounds. Although it is one of the older, first-generation apps, it still is one of the most downloaded. It works like a simplified Audacity. There?s a time line on the screen, and users can zoom in to place start and end marks on it. Once they are sure of the segment, they can save it, to create a ringtone, a notification, an alarm, or an edited tune. It is very user-friendly, and can turn anyone into a sound technician.
3. Fbook – This is the unofficial Facebook app for the Android phone. Just about everyone I know has a Facebook account. The fact is, if you must choose from all the social networking web sites around, Facebook is probably one of your first choices. Fbook optimizes Facebook?s iPhone website for the Android Phone. It also allows users to upload their photos directly from their phones to their Facebook accounts. Even when the app is closed, users receive notifications when new updates are made by their friends.
These are just three of the Google Android phone apps that have been found to be quite helpful for daily use. There are a lot more apps out there. Maybe you have your own favorites, that aren’t on this list. What are your favorite apps? Let us know about them.
