Get the amazon app store and download it from amazon, you also need a amazon account and wait from the "free app of the day" apps, those are usually pretty good. If not, just go to the Android app store and go to the top free apps.

If you need automatic online backup and data recovery for your PC visit Personal Backup or Back2Cloud.

No kidding, these apps are hugely helpful. I've used probably eighty percent of them at one time or another. They just make things so much easier. Thiago |  http://www.elginindustries.com

Clearly the author hasn't heard of Android Device Manager - On Cerberus slide they talk about the lack of a built in "find my phone" feature in Android. Can locate, lock, and wipe a phone through ADM.

If an application is FREE.  You the user are not the customer.  You are the product being sold.

Anyone concerned about privacy really should check the permissions of these apps before installing them. For example, why does Pocket want to know who my contacts are?  Maybe there's a legitimate reason like emailing people involved in some sort of get together, but it might also be to spam those contacts.  Why does the KeyRing app want to access the GPS info?  I don't really want the supplier of a cat food coupon to post to Facebook that I just used their coupon and pinpoint my location.

How on earth could you have ever been persuaded to think that Nooly was even ready for prime time, to say nothing of picking it as a Top 50 app?  Did you look at the reviews on Google Play?  This is not a product held in high regard.  Still, with your recommendation, I downloaded it.  The map feature shows that it correctly locates me (on which everything else depends), yet here in Albuquerque, NM, on a clear and calm Thursday night (when a Wunderground station only blocks away reports winds of 1.3mph and the local forecast is for clear skies night and day until Sunday), this Nooly thing is reporting 9-10mph winds, says it's cloudy right now...and will remain cloudy tonight and all day tomorrow (Friday).  Many of your picks are solid and well-deserved. But I score Nooly a miss.

Good list, but one should make use of a good cloud storage app so that your 16GB tablet becomes for all intents and purposes a 100GB tablet... Skydrive and Dropbox are pretty good, but a bit long in the tooth and too stingy with the free storage amount, file size limits, etc...

Take a look at Copy from Barracuda Networks, very solid service with good Android app, desktop sync app, 256 AES encryption baked in, and 20GB free for life if you use a referral link such as https://copy.com?r=Ca33FM

Hilarious I might use maybe 2 of those apps... the weather one (because the one I have sucks) and the sleep one if I travel.

Great and useful List!!  Android apps are pretty much everything these days, and it's easy to spend hours browsing the selection in the Google Play store. That can be a downside as it can be a problem to separate the best from the worst. This list would greatly helps to get the best one. Thanks for the share! http://www.trewidm.com/

Great List!! I have an interesting app- Android Book Maker,  that will help you create functional android book apps even if you do not possess any programming skills.Your common text files get a makeover and become scrolling e-book apps that are embedded with illustrations and many more elements that may or may not be present in real books. http://www.androidbookmaker.com/

There's an app for shopping lists is also very good, which is simple and quick to use, both when you create a new list like when you go to buy it, because they are stored purchase order information for products in every supermarket , and if you usually go to the same you can order by purchase order and will appear before you met them before. You can also assign as desired supermarket area for each item, such as FREEZER, and when you're buying and you're in that area, you can order by Zone and you group them by area so you do not have to go back then if you realize that there was another article that area.

A party is quickly scroll bars as the initial items, and this is very useful when the list grows long. And what I also find it goes very well, is that when you are creating a new list, if there is a new item that you have not ever bought, you can create it without leaving this screen.

I leave the link if you are interested:

There is this new app called YourELink Smart Budget. I use it to keep track of my expenses specially if I go for vacation. This can also be a grocery checklist at the same time. What i like with this app is it has more than 50K grocery look-up items, it's useful for those who don't want to type long description of an item.. The app also supports syncing of different devices as it has cloud server support. What I like the most is its simplicity and the large text presentation. The app is very easy to use.
