Wow, can you believe it is almost 2012? Time moves so fast these days, sometimes it amazes me! 2011 was the year that I fell in love with Android, due to me chucking the deuces to Blackberry and getting an HTC device. And, being a Midwest Mom for Verizon really raised my awareness (and love) for the fastest growing OS on the market.
With us bringing in the New Year and raising our glasses to a new start and new beginning, it is only appropriate that we do it with some fun and fabulous Android apps that you can use on your phone or tablet device.
Here are 5 great Android apps to help you bring in the New Year:
Qik Video Chat:
Do you want to ring in the New Year with someone who is many miles away? Will you be out and about, but want to be the first person this person talks to in 2012? The Qik Video Chat app allows you to record video and also video chat with anyone else who has the application—all you need is their user name. Log in, video chat, and wish each other a Happy New Year in real time!
This Android app is a fabulous alternative to the iPhone Instagram app. Transform your New Year’s Eve photos into a great montage of antique and quaint looking photos with the click (or touch) of a button. This is a free app and a great addition to any Android device.
