New Android Apps: Quora, Tripayo And More

Hey Android, we'll always have a spotlight just for you, big guy. Here we have another batch of the best new Android apps to help you find your friends, get answers to your most pressing questions, and get your travel plans organised. Bonus: they're all free!


GrooveRunner: "Get your fat backside off the couch and on the treadmill!" That kind of coaching can be motivating for some people, or you can go the less hardcore route with this app that lets you track your workout on GPS, listen to music in an embedded player and track your progress. Free.


Sonar: This friend-finding app has been on iOS for more than a year, but it just launched on Android. It will dig into your social networks to find people you might know nearby. I've honestly never actually used it to meet someone other than at the airport, because I feel kind of weird about that. Free.


Quora: If you could have any superpower, what would you have? Quora can help you find the answer to questions like that. The service has existed for quite a while, but now it has an Android app. Free.


Tripayo: This is kind of the ultimate travel app. Not only will it help you meet other people on your journey, it will let you book flights and hotels. If you're the type who prefers the backpack/hostel method, this is right up your alley. Free.
