5 Great Android Applications To Get A Better Smartphone Experience
If you are an Android phone user and want to enrich his/her smartphone experience by using some great applications, then today’s list of mine is for you. I have gathered 5 Android applications which I feel help out the Android smartphone user in a variety of ways.
Read on and let me in the comments what you think.
The constant connection of our phone with WiFi and internet services uses up a lot of our phones battery unnecessarily. JuiceDefender is a great application that turns off our internet connections and then on again on our Android handsets. There is a widget too that can do the same(APN ON/OFF) but Juice Defender have lots of more to do. Not only does this save battery but also keeps away those sporadic email and other notifications which distract us from other tasks at hand.
TuneWiki lets us view the lyrics of the songs being played on our Android phone. My favorite feature of this application is that it syncs the lyrics with the song so we view the lyrics currently being song. The accuracy of the lyrics was remarkable and I was quite impressed. It was awesome.
ToggleSettings is a control-panel-type of application which is a must-have for all Android phone owners. It gives us quick and easy access to all our settings in one simple screen. Having used it once and realizing how important it is, you will wonder why it does not come with Android in the first place.
To check our missed phone calls or notifications of any other sort, we need to turn on the screen of our phone. Missed Call, lets users customize the LED notification light so that it blinks in the event of a missed call, text message or even an active Bluetooth Connection. Using this application, Android users can more easily tell if there are any notifications for them to check.
5. Shazam Encore
Are you not sure what song that is playing on the radio or on TV? Crack open Shazam and hold it near the source long enough for the free app to get a fix. Shazam compares the recorded song with music in its database and will return a match to your song. In Shazam lingo, this is “tagging” a song, identifying its name and artist. Shazam for Android remembers the music you tag and gives you a chance to buy it yourself via the Amazon MP3 store on your phone. If you can’t get enough of the song, you can also watch a YouTube video, if there’s one available.
