  1. Great, there is great apps that I don't know and I also using android apps… the main thing in android is it’s so fast. Thank you for sharing.

  2. The Android platform strives to ensure backwards compatibility. However, sometimes you want to use new features which aren't supported on older platforms. This article discusses strategies for selectively using these features based on availability, allowing you to keep your applications portable across a wide range of devices.

  3. Some things are very useful and effective for blogging, like these. I like your way of presentation in a simple way, i.e with Description and Marketing url.

  4. great list of Android apps.. I am buying an Android phone this month these apps would be on my downloads list…

  5. Teamviewer is great. Really nice when you are away from your computer and need to take a look at something. I would add to the list a free texting app like text free. Really like that app also, because I hate paying for texting πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks for the comment mate, I too like Teamviewer very much, comes handy when out of home. If you see my list I have added a free texting application named Full on SMS. I too hate to pay for text messaging.
