Android Apps I Use Often

I decided it was time to reset my Motorola Driod to factory defaults because it has become increasingly slow. So I made a list of my favorite applications to make it easier to remember which Apps to load. Here is the list of my most frequently used applications:
  • Amazon Kindle - E-Reader
  • androidVNC - The Open Source (GPL) remote desktop program for Android devices. Connects to most VNC servers: incl TightVNC, RealVNC on Win and Linux, x11vnc, and Apple Remote Desktop on OS/X.
  • App 2 SD - Helps identify applications that can be moved to the SD card to keep your phone's internal memory from becoming any more cluttered than necessary.
  • Barnacle Wifi Tether - Turn your phone into a Wireless Ad-hoc HotSpot (requires root)
  • Battery Defender - Battery Saver
  • Camp and RV - I have found this app to be well worth the $4.99 purchase price because we often find ourselves unsure where we will want to stop and camp for the night. This app seems to be the best for locating nearby camping facilities.
  • ConnectBot - A powerful open-source Secure Shell (SSH) client. It can manage simultaneous SSH sessions, create secure tunnels, and copy/paste between other applications.
  • eBuddy Messenger - Chat on MSN (Windows Live Messenger or WLM), Facebook, Yahoo!, MySpace, Gtalk (Orkut), ICQ, AIM (AOL) and Hyves.
  • GasBuddy - Find Cheap Gas
  • Pulse - News reader
  • Remote Web Desktop - (Requires Root) Remote manage, control and use Android phone through a web browser.
  • Satellite AR - Point your phone's camera to the sky, and small icons track the locations of various satellites.
  • Screen Filter - Dims your screen for super low light viewing.
  • SiriusXM Internet Radio - A great way to make use of your SiriusXM subscription when you aren't in your car. Requires an upgrade when you subscribe.
  • Skyfire Web Browser - Optimizes video so you use as much as 75% less bandwidth.
