TOP 10 ANDROID APPS

Read on for the 10
most popular Android apps
among your peers from last
month.
1. Facebook Home
Facebook is the world’s largest
social network, so it’s no
surprise that the new
Facebook Home app was the
most popular Android app last
week. We tested out the app
and found it had promise, but
the coolest featured called
Chat Heads is available in the
stand alone Facebook
Messenger app. Facebook
Home is only supposed on a
handful of devices, but
MoDaCo has instructions if you
want to side-load it on another
device.
2. StatusAgenda
StatusAgenda is a free app
that brings your calendars to
your pull-down notification
area. The app integrates
with Google Calendar so there
is nothing to set up. I normally
have the a Calendar widget
stuck to my home screen, so I
have yet to test out
StatusAgenda, but it currently
has an average rating of 4.4 in
the Google Play Store.
3. Twilight
Twilight got a lot of buzz in
last week’s Fresh Meat
column, and it appears the app
might live up to the hype. The
app makes your device screen
adapt to the time of the day
by filtering the blue spectrum
on your phone or tablet after
sunset and protecting your
eyes with a soft and pleasant
red filter. The average review
score is 4.6, and I’m installing
it right now.
4. InCall Recorder
InCall Recorder might be one
of the first call recording apps
that works well, and it’s
actually free to install. Some
users report it works great,
while others say it’s not
compatible with their device.
Filter the Google Play reviews
by your device to see what
others are saying before you
take the time to download it
and try it out.
5. Burner
If you like to sell items on
Craigslist and you need a
disposable number, then
Burner might be the solution
you need. Burner maintains a
pool of numbers that you can
rent on-demand and then
dispose of when no longer
needed. The Android app
comes with one free Burner
number to test out, and then
you will have to pay for
continued use after that. The
app was just released this
week and it already received
an update over the weekend,
so keep sharing your feedback
so that the developer can
improve the experience.
6. Flatout: Stuntman
Last week’s most popular
game was Flatout: Stuntman
from Team6 Game Studious.
The Flatout series is one of the
most popular stunt titles on
gaming consoles, and this
mobile version delivers all the
same exciting action. The game
is optimized for Tegra-
powered devices, but it runs
on a wide variety of Android
smartphones and tablets. It’s
free to play, so check it out if
you enjoy ragdoll fun.
7. Rando
Dustin wrote a brief preview
of Rando last week, and I’m
surprised it’s not higher up on
this list. The simple app allows
you to anonymously share
photos with strangers and it’s
strangely addicting. We
normally take pics and upload
them to get likes from people
we know, so sharing a photo
with a random stranger really
changes the behavior of how
you capture images. I have
been playing with the app for
the last week, and it still has
me entertained.
8. Overkill 2
Overkill 2 is a new game for
people that like to customize
guns. This sequel to the
popular original lets you
modify 30 realistic 3D
guns the way you feel they
should be and then take them
to the action. These stand-still
type of shooters are not my
thing, so I have yet to check it
out.
9. Swizzle
Swizzle is a well designed app
that can help anyone make
cocktails and mix drinks like a
bartender or mixologist. The
app features thousands of
drink recipes, including a
selection of non alcoholic and
virgin drinks. Additional
features include a My Cabinet
section that allows you to store
your ingredients inventory, a
built-in shopping list, and the
ability to create your own
recipies and share them with
friends.
10. Fetch
Rounding out the Top 10 is
Fetch, an app discovery
platform that is powered by
tags. Users can define the
traits they are looking for in
apps, and then Fetch creates a
personalized feed of apps that
match what they are looking
for. The app allows you to
follow some detailed traits like
“button mashing,” “boss
battles,” and “war games” so
it’s easy to create a feed that
will deliver apps you will love.
