What is Android Market ?

Android Market is an online software store developed by Google for Android devices. An app called "Market" is Pre-installed on some Android devices and allows users to browse and download applications published by third-party developers, hosted on Android Market

The Android Market is teeming with apps that can make your life easier in countless ways. These 10 are among the best.

Dolphin is one of the best mobile Web browsers. Period. It is fast, reliable, has real tabs, gestures, and multi-touch. Although the default Android browser is an okay solution, it simply doesnt compare, feature for feature, to Dolphin. Dolphin is also much faster than most of the other Android solutions. My big question: Why is there no Chrome for Android?

ChompSMS is the best text client for the Android phone. In fact, this text app is so much better than the default, Im surprised that the various Android-based phones havent switched. One aspect that makes this app so much better than the default is the battery usage. Especially in pre-2.0 releases, the Android text app has a problem with going to sleep, so it is constantly draining battery. By switching to Chomp, you will save your battery.

Google Voice turns the Android phone into a full Google Voice phone. There is complete control over how the phone integrates with Voice, including letting GV take over all aspects of phone calls completely, if desired. These are the first apps that have earned a permanent place on my home screen, but they will by no means be the only ones. The service automatically generates voicemail transcription that is usually accurate enough to get the gist of what the caller is saying. The app then lets you scroll through your messages visually, like an e-mail inbox, and stream the audio messages from the web as needed, all without wasting precious mobile minutes. Google Voices deep integration with Gmail makes it a great compliment to your existing array of communications tools.

FeedR is an RSS reader that works as both an app and a widget. So far, in my quest for the perfect RSS widget, it has proven to be the best yet. FeedR can add preconfigured feeds or you can add your own personal favorites. This app beats the competition with its ability to truly auto-update. Many other feed readers (especially those in the widget category) require a user update to function properly. FeedR handles all updates in the background, with no intervention.

Twidroid has been a reliable and impressive Twitter app for quite sometime now and it is reckoned as the best Twitter app in the Android Market. Twidroid, developed by Ralph Zimmerman and Thomas Marban, is the reigning king among other Twitter apps. Apart the usual ability to send tweets, view replies and direct messages, Twidroid integrates with Androids browser so that you can tweet links to pages you find appealing. It captures GPS information to tweet your location or to geotag tweeted photos and offers a selection of URL shortening and photo hosting services. Its all wrapped up in a clean and stylish interface thats easy and fun to use. It offers constant updates from developer to improve the app.

Astro Android App is a File Manager for the Android OS. It enables you to manage files on your phone making the use of a computer dispensable. You can perform operations such as copy, paste, move, delete, open with other apps, create and folders, etc. Astro File Manager has the ability to select multiple files to perform actions and conduct search functions for files. The app also provides details on Android apps such as package name, version, file size, and even app activities. Astro File Manager does a great job of letting you navigate files on your SD card and accessible internal memory, sure, but it also has its own built-in task killer, backs up applications, can send files as email attachments, and much more. Its great to have in Android Utilities.

ConnectBot is an open source secure shell client for your Android phone. This client can manage simultaneous ssh connections and copy/paste between apps, and it has shortcuts for sequences. You may notice on its Market entry that a bug exists for the Hero. The upcoming Hero update will solve this bug, and it will be worth the wait. Now if HTC will push the 2.0 update!

Barcode Scanner has quickly become one of my favorites. If you need to find product reviews (or price comparisons) while shopping, all you have to do is scan the bar code with your camera and open up the results. No more having to Google a product and sift through pages for reviews and/or prices.

Places Directory is one of those apps you will constantly be thankful you have. With this tool, you can locate (thanks to your GPS) any nearby place, such as a hotel, restaurant, retail location, or movie theatre. Everything is broken into categories, and you can bookmark your favorites. From a places listing, you can instantly dial a locations phone number or visit its Web site.

Evernote is not just for the iPhone. This handy app lets you keep track of nearly anything and in many ways. You can keep track of things with notes, photos, recordings, and more. And with an Evernote account, you can keep everything in sync online and on your PC. If youre looking for a one-stop productivity shop app, this is it.
