Mine is "The Score" has all types of great sports data, including lines, injured an times dates. Great app. Only thing missing is a direct link to my bookie to place bets.

I AM ON AN ANDROID DEVICE

My favorite entertainment apps are Tapatalk (forum browser) or Candy Crush, which is a stupid, mindless game I've gotten addicted to.

In terms of productivity, the best e-mail app out there is K-9 Mail, the best browser is Google Chrome, the best calendar/clock/weather widget is BeautifulWidgets, and the best button bar is Dazzle.

I use GreenPower Premium for battery-life purposes and I've been nothing short of totally blown away by how good it is. I've more than doubled my battery life with just that one app.

Quoting JoePatroni707 (Thread starter):
"The Score"

Great app, but they call football "soccer", which gets on my nerves... And they don't have the results for the French championship. Bar these two annoying things, it's complete and really handy to follow the results of your favourite sport (I mainly track football, NBA, NHL, NFL and Formula 1).

Otherwise, I'm always impressed at Droid Sky view. Really handy to know which star you're looking at.

Pinger. Gives you a local phone number without revealing yours. Lets you send texts and calls($$) with that number all through internet.

Also an Android fan, for now...

Car Home Ultra is my "can't live without" app. It's just a simple app that comes up when I put my phone into my car dock and lets me have a separate home screen for the car apps I use the most, like maps, music player, internet radio player, podcast player, etc.

One of the main reasons I bought a smartphone was because I didn't want to buy a standalone GPS for the car, and this app makes it easy to use the maps app as well as all my other car apps.

It also has a digital speedometer it maintains via the gps readings and it's pretty cool to have that, too.

Plus I can set the color to match the orange of the rest of my car's digital displays!  

Also, since I'm a fan of simple things, Solitare (Ken Magic) is my favorite game for the Android. Simple, fast, addictive!



Inspiration, move me brightly!

Favourite app is probably the Reddit app. Hours and hours of entertainment.

Most useful would probably be the flashlight app I have.

That's a truly dreadful app! Funny for about three seconds I guess, but after that....

Juice defender is similarly effective.

I am currently quite hooked on playing GTA Vice City on my S3. I am surprised by how well it performs and how playable it is.

Surprised that nobody has mentioned FlightRadar24 Pro - one of the few paid-for apps I have. Scanner radio is quite interesting, kind of weird to able to listen to NYPD or whoever while sat here in the UK. TuneIn Radio is a great internet radio app, a ridiculously large range of stuff to listen to. My Satellite TV app is also good, allowing me to record things at home by the touch of a button from my phone wherever I am. Very useful. Viber is useful for calling friends and family abroad, and messaging them without the cost of calls and texts. I find myShiftwork to be a very useful app for organising my life, and it syncs automatically with my calendar.

I guess that's about it.

My favourite app is the local council one which tells me which bins to put out every Monday. Today, it's the black one which is general waste, and the green one, bottles and cans. It's invaluable.

I use the LG Nexus 4 and love LG for putting out such a great product. What's wrong with your LG?

My favorite apps are 'Shazam' which identifies the song that is playing around you, great app!
'Any do' which is a great organizational tool.
'Google Goggles' which is a visual recognition and translation app. Watch the video to get a better idea because it has a pretty wide use.
'Map my Ride' does exactly that for cycling plus some other pretty cool and useful stats.

Good that you mention it! I went to Toronto last weekend and used the voice-activated GPS option in Google Maps to drive there. It did the job perfectly, so I'd put this app on my favourites too

It is amazingly accurate too......Apart from the navigation facility.....just the map function is information enough.....maybe Google should start selling their maps to other GPS manufacturers.

What's wrong with your LG?

There are three levels of software: LG software, Android software, AT&T software. Somewhere, they stop working. I will not get calls or voice mail or texts for an hour. And I can not connect to the internet. Even when I re-boot (turn off and turn on) it still says nothing is going on.

My brosband went to the ER yesterday. He texted me and called when I was in class but I didn't get any texts or voice mails for an hour. Why? AT&T/Android/LG didn't get it to me until then.

The sales person said it was the greatest thing ever.

Much as I love AT&T, I want to be belligerent and switch to Verizon or T-Mobile.
