Top 5 Android Apps

I’ve had my Android smartphone for about 3 years and it has become the invisible extension of both my brain and my hands. I’m embarrassingly dependent on it, but not too proud to admit that.

I’m going to exclude the obvious frequently used apps: email, web, text messaging, Facebook, and Twitter – because that would make this list way too boring and predictable.

Here are the top 5 apps I use on my phone:

  1. Google Talk.  Instant messaging.  I’m delaying the jump to Hangouts but this is inevitable.
  2. You Tube & Netflix.  Video. I often watch 15 minutes of TV on my phone at bedtime, this is the cause of my recent Doctor Who addiction.
  3. Shazam. Song identification.  I find myself trying to tag songs on TV, in coffee shops, and wherever I hear something I like that I’m unfamiliar with.
  4. Word Feud. Scrabble game. But I can never beat my dad!
  5. Google Maps.  Map.  I drive and walk.  I get lost.  I need GPS.

Honorary Mention:  Yelp & Google Places.  Locating and seeing reviews for establishments.  Always good in unfamiliar places and when I’m out of ideas on where to go.
