Android Apps of the Week! –August 19, 2012
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 (now known as Google Play) has over 600,000 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!”.

Ski Safari is quite possibly one of the best Android games to be released this year. It’s a great game that is easy to play and highly addictive. Ski Safari is where Animals, Avalanches and Action come together to create a new casual gameplay experience. It is right up there with Angry Birds as one of my favorite games. Check out the trailer for this game below to get a quick preview:
Want to check it out for yourself? Just go to the “Play Store” icon on your phone and click the search button and type in “Ski Safari”. 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]

Okay, I’ll have to admit that I’ve never used Pinterest. But I know that TONS of other people have and it is quickly becoming one of the most popular websites on the Internet. Why? I have no idea. Pinterest lets you organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web. People use pinboards to plan their weddings, decorate their homes, and organize their favorite recipes. Apparently, it is a fun thing to do. You be the judge! Check it out and let us know what you think! [Market Link]
