Ironically, the third most popular post in 2010 had nothing to do with church leadership or strategy or communications or any of the topics I typically address. The post simply provided a list of my favorite Android apps. I guess it’s just another confirmation that 2010 was the year of Android.
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 usingGoogle 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.)
