My best Android Apps :)

Just wanted to shere some of my best apps that i use on my Samsung Galaxy S2. It's more of the everyday apps as opposed to the technical operational Apps. First of all i just have to show you my home screen. The apps i use more frequently have widgets or shortcuts on the homescreen. If you look on the top left, you will see 6 degrees in blue. This is the accuweather app whick i have found to be very reliable. Although android phones come with accuweather, you will need to download the one from the market which seems to do a lot more.

I use ebay, facebook, twitter, foursquare, formspring and google plus a lot and have these apps from these developers as opposed to third party. Infact, Google+, twitter and facebook recently got new look updates and i'll be the first to admit that they now offer a very intense user experience.

My other apps are the LLoyds and natwest banking apps, lottery results, bible, bbc, Flashlight, groupon, argos, nectar, premier league, linkedin, google translate, british gas, paypal, PAYE tax calculator, Loan Calc, Redlaser, dictionary and RAC traffic. I also love the Filmon Free TV app which also works with 3g.

My latest app has really impressed me. It's wikitude and brings everything that little bit closer to you. It shows what's around you, even closest twitter and other social network users.It also uses Augmented Reality navigations system where your Navigation takes place in realtime in the live-camera image of your smartphone. Next to a conventional 3D map view, Wikitude Drive has a spectacular Augmented Reality camera view, where driving directions are directly drawn into the real road you are driving on.

The system works by attaching your mobile phone on top of your dashboard with the camera facing the road. The application then overlays video captured through the camera with driving instructions. This allows users to literally drive through their phone, watching the road even while they are looking at directions
