Ten best Android apps
23 August, 2011 | Web design
Here at Resource Techniques, we love the iPhone. It is a great smart phone with the biggest mobile market share in the UK, but it would be nice to see some variety – after all there is more than one mobile on the market.
To correct this we have decided to give you the top 10 apps available to download on the Android market. Estate Agents, hold on to your hats:
1. Perfect App Protector
The Perfect App Protector is the perfect remedy for this. It allows you to protect individual applications so that your friend can’t use Facebook to update something silly or embarrassing.
Amazingly this nifty app protector is absolutely free, but Estate Agents pay for the full version they won’t receive any ads for £1.09.
2. Facebook for Android
With Facebook’s popularity, there wasn’t any doubt that we were going to include the biggest social network in the world.
With between 50,000,000 and 100,000,000 downloads, Facebook for Android has got to be a contender for the most downloaded app.
As always, the best thing about Facebook is that it is free!
3. OfficeSuite Pro
This is a must have for Estate Agents that want to use their Android for business. As the title suggests, OfficeSuite Pro gives Estate Agents the full range of office programs including Word, Excel, PowerPoint.
There is a free version that lasts 30 days, but at a price of £9.07, you might as well pay for the full app.
4. LogMeIn Ignition
This has got to be one of the best apps out there.
For anyone that has had technical support where they take over your computer will know the magic of remote access. Now android users can recreate that magic by taking over their computer whilst on the go.
LogMeIn Ignition app allows you to do just that, and at a price of £9.11, you’ll never leave your computer ever again!
As an iPhone user I was flabbergasted when I found out that the Android app store included antivirus app software. It’s clearly a requirement so let’s move on.
A quick search has shown that there are many paid and free anti-virus android apps, but using the average user rating I’d suggest the Anti-Virus Free, or if you’re willing to pay the momentous price of £6.05 Estate Agents can splash out on the Anti-Virus Pro.
There’s not much to say about this app. Thetrainline.com is one of the UK’s biggest websites for checking train times and buying tickets online.
Now Estate Agents can fulfil all their travel needs straight from their mobile on Thetrainline completely for free.
We’ve written a few articles on Google+ including ‘an exclusive look at the new Google+’ and ‘Google+ for Estate Agents’. For those that aren’t sure, Google+ is Google’s latest social network that has made many tongues wagging.
The Google+ app is completely free and allows android users to access their favourite social network and instantly upload videos and photos.
With many +1 buttons (similar to Facebook’s ‘Like’ button) popping up on many websites, we suggest that Estate Agents keep their eyes out on this social network.
Almost forgot to mention Twitter. I use the twitter iPhone app more than any other app and there’s no reason why I wouldn’t install it on the Android. In fact it’ll probably be one of the first apps that I’d install.
Twitter Android app is free and popular with 10,000,000 – 50,000,000 downloads!
9. TiKL – Touch To Talk
This Android App is unbelievable. Not only does it let you talk (call) other app users for free but it also lets you text message them, again, for free. This means that if all your friends were also Android users and downloaded this app, there would be no need for paying your mobile company for calls or texts.
TiKL – Touch To Talk is completely free to download.
This is the official music player that uses the exclusive Music Beta by Google. At the time of writing this, Music Beta by Google is only accessible by invitation only and gives each user free music to play.
Estate Agents can download the Music app for free and request an invitation for Music Beta by Google here.
