With the Nexus 7 now available, Android tablets are no longer poor iPad copycats. They're real and affordable devices that also happen to be really good. But to make it even better, you'll need to get some apps. Here's our first edition of the best Android tablet apps.
It's the start of a new month, and that means it's time to do a little housekeeping on our list of best apps for iPhone, iPad and Android. We've updated all of our essential apps lists to include a few forgotten favourites, some long-awaited arrivals, and even more amazing apps. Check them out!
Here's an idea for the start of your working week: get 50GB of Box storage for fuh-fah-foo-free, get in shape, replace your dialler and then replace your launcher. Oh whoa. These apps will let you do just that!
My life is out of control and I want to manage my data and documents better. I want my music to sound better. I want my brain to work better. I want to watch videos on a bigger screen than my phone. And… I want to take funny pictures to make myself feel better about it. These apps should help.
Does anyone use their smartphones as phones anymore? Faux pas, dude. Text me! Send an email. Heck, you know you can even IM me, right? Oh but you don't know what the best Instant Messaging app on iOS or Android is. That's OK. Here you go.
Imo.im: The new imo.im app (which is available in beta right now) has gotten quite attractive and is a huge improvement over the current official version. The beta uses a tabbed interface (sorta similar to eBuddy) and has a brand spanking new UI where everything is a lot easier to use. The beta is only a "preview" of what's to come in the official 2.0 update but from what I'm seeing, it's pretty much ready to go. One thing: I don't like how the "Send" button is near the text box and not on the keyboard itself. Free.
iPhones! iPads! Android! You've got a screen in your pocket, and we know what you should put on it. To get the most out of your technological revolution, you'll need apps. Lots of apps. Put your tiny hand in ours...
