It’s been almost three months since I purchased my Android and I am in love with it. I never thought that I wold ever give up my Blackberry for another device, but since I made the switch, I couldn’t be happier. With the selection of apps in the Android Market, there isn’t much that my phone can’t do! I feel so much more productive when I am on the go with this device, but I have found 10 apps that really make my life better, in many ways.
Here are my picks for 10 Fabulous Android Apps for Girls on the Go:
Allrecipes: I am no culinary master chef, but I am devoted to preparing meals each weeknight for my family. The Allrecipes app is free, and helps me come up with meals that everyone can enjoy. You can use the spinner feature to match up what you have on hand and the amount of time you have to prepare the meal. It’s very useful and takes a lot of the guesswork out of meal preparation.
ColorNote: I am always taking notes on the go, and ColorNote makes it easy for me to keep track of them on my device. I can select the color of the note I want to use based on importance and file them away for easy access. You can also create fabulous to-do lists in a snap!
GasBuddy: With gas prices being sky high, I am constantly on the look-out for lower prices. The GasBuddy app will show you the lowest prices of gas in your area based on the zip code. Even when traveling, you can be assured you are getting the best bargain for fuel.
PayPal: Many of my clients pay me via PayPal and I can easily check my balance with this app. In addition, I can request funds and send money to others without being on my computer. How fab is that?
Photobucket: I take ALOT of pictures. And with the Photobucket app, all of my photos are automatically uploaded online to my Photobucket account and I can later access them to post online or to put wherever I wish.
PinkPad (Free): Us chicks live busy lives, so sometimes the smallest of details can be overlooked. The PinkPad app makes it easy for me to um, (clears throat) keep up with my menstruation dates and chart symptoms like bloating, weight gain, etc. It’s a great app and there is both a free and paid version which boasts many more features.
QR Droid: QR Codes are everywhere so you have to have a way to capture the information on your phone. I have tried many readers but QR Droid is hands down the best one I have tried thus far. You can also use it to create QR codes on the fly to give to others.
Seesmic: Nothing tops the social networking app for Blackberry called Socialscope that integrated all of your favorite social sites, but Seesmic comes close. I love that I can use it for both my Twitter accounts, Facebook, and Facebook Fan Page in one application. It is also pretty reliable. And unlike Socialscope, there isn’t a waiting list—anyone can download Seesmic.
TipNSplit: I suck at tipping, so yes, I need an app to tell me my percentage. It also splits a tab when needed and is very easy to use.
WordPress: Blogging on the go (or fixing a mistake when a reader finds one) is essential in my world. The Android WordPress app is wonderful, and allows me to do almost everything I can on my laptop. If you aren’t using WordPress, please, please, reconsider. It’s the bomb, ya’ll!
Android = #winning!
