Android Apps of the Week! – August 14, 2011
Welcome to another edition of DroidLessons.com’s “Android Apps of the Week!”. The plan is to compile a list of my favorite apps and share them with you on the Sunday of every week. It will give you plenty of time to try out the apps and then also something to look forward to on a weekly basis. It’s always fun to learn about the latest and greatest apps out there. The Android market has over 200,000 apps and therefore it’s not always easy finding quality apps via the Android Market. My hope is to save you some time by sharing and informing you of the quality apps that I have found over the many months of using and teaching on the Android platform.
So, without further ado, I present to you this week’s edition of “Android Apps of the Week!”.

Are you ready to be a star fighter!? If so, then you are going to love Star Blitz. Take to the skies as a STAR BLITZ FIGHTER on an intergalactic mission to defeat the evil Alien Xeno Cluster! Unleash your powerful arsenal of LASERS, ELECTRONS and HOMING ROCKETS on the enemy as you work to out-maneuver and out-gun the Alien ships. Attack at the heart of the evil Cluster and restore faith in the Galactic Coalition! This game reminds me of the old classic games like Asteroids… but with far more advanced graphics and sound. Only negative thing I can say about this game is that it seems to use up a lot of battery life! But besides that it’s a really fun and addictive game.
Just go to your “Market” icon on your phone and click the search button and type in “Star Blitz”. Install the app and start having some fun! I’ve also included a link to the Android Market Webstore here for those of you that want to install it via the web. [Market Link]

Are you a curious person? Do you find yourself constantly contemplating about how things work? That makes two of us! That’s why I consider HowStuffWorks to be such a great app! The HowStuffWorks Android app not only gives you instant access to a massive collection of articles and podcasts right on your Android device, but it also gives you direct access to their famous podcasters and HowStuffWorks experts. Different categories include: Adventure, Animals, Auto, Culture, Entertainment, Health, Home & Garden, Money, Science, and Technology. Download it today and learn something new! [Market Link]

This next app recommendation is only for you UFC fans out there! The UFC is the fastest growing sport in the country and it’s hard to keep up with all the past and upcoming fights. This app will help you out by providing you with the following features: watch UFC events live, purchase past events or individual fights from the Fight Library, view fighter profiles, get the latest news, view TV schedule, and more. This is a must have app for the UFC fan! [Market Link]

TuneIn Radio is one of my favorite apps on Android. It allows you to browse and listen to radio stations (live, local, and global) via your Android device. How great is that!? You can listen to your local stations or listen to the ones from your old hometown. Use it at home, gym, work, or anywhere else you can think of. Find your favorite stations from over 50,000 channels of music, sports, news, podcasts and national networks like BBC, NPR, SWR. Give it a try the next time you are in the mood for some free music.
