Classic Notes – Notepad, ToDo. Minimal and Efficient. Have you ever wanted a magical notepad that could do anything you asked it to?

Classic Notes comes in a minimalistic style to make doing work, both attractive and fun and is loaded with options to make this application one productivity tool that you might not know you can’t live without.
Rainy Day 2
Rainy Day 2 is an utterly charming game where you play Mr. Skinny, a man who really doesn’t like getting stuck in the rain. Help Mr. Skinny home by avoiding the raindrops by any means possible. The game is as cute as you can imagine as Mr. Skinny runs down the streets to get home, casually befriending lost animals, jumping over tin cans and stopping for the occasional hotdog. You might find this a bit pedestrian if you prefer the all-action uber-violence of some games, but if you want a sweet and relaxing gaming experience, this game could be just what you need.
Dictionary.com is the official app, unsurprisingly, of Dictionary.com, one of the best known dictionary websites on the Internet (certainly the easiest to remember). Obviously the app helps you find correct spellings of words and word definitions, but it also comes with a load of additional features that makes this more than just a reference application when you forget the correct spelling of ‘necessary’.
No Root ScreenShot It
No Root ScreenShot It. Take a screenshot of your phone’s screen. Root is NOT required. Finally, a screenshot app for Android that doesn’t require root. This application works on ALL phones except Honeycomb.
aCar. An all-in-one application to track and manage your car: maintenance, fill-ups, fuel mileage, expenses, and business trips for your vehicle.

Regularly updated and easy to navigate interface, fans of the news site should be pleased with this comprehensive news application.

Google+ is the Android interface for Google’s new social network, ‘Google+’. Endeavoring to include as much as the web experience as possible, the app has lots of features including automatic picture uploads and ‘Huddle’- a group chat messaging function. Google+ is in beta stage and, as perhaps should be expected, some issues also exist on the mobile app. This said, the Google+ app is smooth, easy to use and understand and a great means to access Google+ on the go. I get the impression Google recognize a service needs to have a mobile platform to thrive (probably learnt from not bothering to release a Google Wave app), so you could argue this is essential to the social networks growth. Now also released on the iPhone, the Google+ app is a vital component in the growth and potential of the new social network.
