My Three Favorite Android Apps
There are so many applications on the Android Market and seeing through all of them with detail can be a lot of hard work. However, I’ve browsed through many of the most popular ones, and the top hits in different categories. The three of my favorites have already been given detailed reviews in some earlier posts, but this is just sort of a recap to help you get the best out of your GALAXY Tab, or any other Android phone. Here goes:
I don’t think most people realize how wonderful this app really is. Perhaps it’s because there is a wide collection of apps doing the same thing…well, almost the same thing; Control your PC with your smartphone! But what makes PhoneMyPC different, is that there is absolutely nothing that makes it really hard to set up, or to operate. PhoneMyPC works like a charm, it’s fast, easy to use, and does what it should without any problems.
PhoneMyPC works only if your computer and your phone are somehow connected to the internet, whether it’s WiFi or 3G. Both don’t really need to be connected the same connection, although it works best if they are. You have to install an app on PC as well, apart from the app on the phone, which is unfortunately not free!
To give you an idea of exactly what you can do, here is a short note on the app’s functionality:
Now you can control EVERYTHING on your PC via your Android phone! Make your device a virtual mouse, keyboard, interact or just see whats happening at your PC’s screen. Spy at anyone and see what they are doing on your PC! Scare friends while the mouse moves itself and opens/closes applications! Haunt everyone when the notepad opens and you start writing! Make your device a webcam to enable video-calling from Skype. All this comes in just one App; PhoneMyPC. This is the ultimate tool for controlling your PC via your Android phone!

Evernote is one of the best multi-platform note taking app out there. Its available for most devices, including iPhone, Android, and even for Windows and Mac. To keep your notes secure and protected, you have to create an Evernote Account (for Free). You can start creating notes on your PC, laptop, mobile or tablet. Notebooks can be created for keeping notes that are alike in order, and can be accessed anytime, anywhere. Evernote keeps syncing with your account on all devices. The premium version of Evernote allows you to store your notes in your phone’s memory, along with lots and lots of cool features.
Evernote is for the people who like making neat notes of their studies, events etc. and keeping them safe! See the full review here.
Say bye to bluetooth and manage your file transfers over the web!
Share Photos, Contacts, Music, Videos and even Apps between two devices. Just bump the two together, it’s that easy! Bump is available for the iPhone and Android devices. To share media, open Bump in both devices and select the things you want each to share. Hold both devices and bump your hands together. Accept the Bump request and your content starts sharing immediately.
Bump works over a WiFi, 3G or 4G connection. I found this out, that even if the person with the other device is far away but connected to the same WiFi, you can just bump your phone with anything you like, a wall or a chair or with your head! A great thing about Bump is that it lets you share Apps too, though Android Apps wont work on iPhone and vice versa. The transfer speed is pretty fast though it really depends on your connection.

So these were in my opinion the best apps for Android right now. Do you think there are more to be added? What’s your own favorite app? Feel free to comment and share your views.
