My 21 Favorite Android Apps

After several years of being a Blackberry guy, I recently switched from the AT&T network back to Sprint and picked up an HTC Hero using the Android operating system. It’s been fun discovering new Android apps over the last few weeks. Here’s my current list of favorites:

  • Amazon – It allows me to scan barcodes on books in Barnes & Noble and see what the comparable price is on Amazon.
  • Barcode Scanner – I can scan anything with a barcode and shop online using Google Shopper.
  • Evernote – It’s the primary way I document everything I do in meetings including capturing pictures of whiteboard sessions.
  • Expensify – When I travel, this app let’s me track expenses, upload receipts, track mileage and request reimbursements.
  • Fandango – I can browse movies, find theaters and purchase tickets from my phone.
  • Golf Channel Mobile – This app is going to come in handing this week as I follow the Masters coverage.
  • Google Voice – It’s one of the key reasons I never switched to an iPhone. I use Google Voice for all my calls.
  • Live Scores – Provides updates on NCAA, NFL, MLB, etc. scores.
  • NewsRob – This is an app that allows me to read Google Reader content offline.
  • Pandora – It’s still my favorite mobile app for streaming music. (My favorite is the Justin Timberlake channel.)
  • PDAnet – The app provides the ability to tether for Internet access.
  • Redbox Codes – Allows me to get free DVD rentals from Redbox kiosks.
  • Seesmic – Even though I still use Tweetdeck on my laptop, I’m using Seesmic for Twitter on my mobile.
  • Shazam – A nifty tool that listens to music on the radio and then identifies the track, album and artist.
  • Sprint Navigation – Powered by telenav, this has been a huge time saver now that we’re trying to get our way around Atlanta traffic.
  • SprintTV – My favorite channel is the new live streaming of ESPN. Love it!
  • TripIt – I’m able to forward confirmations for flights, hotels and cars and this app tracks my itineraries.
  • – I can watch clips and full episodes of CBS programming.
  • WordPress – The app allows me to manage on the fly.
  • YouVersion – This let’s me connect to the online Bible reading site including over 40 translations and 20 reading plans.
  • Zillow Real Estate – Helps us find homes for sale and home values as we’re trying to hunt down our next home.

    Those are my favorites. What am I missing?
