Android Apps of the Week for Feb. 13, 20110
Android Apps of the Week! – February 13, 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 100,000 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!”.

Hogs And Kisses for Valentine’s Day! In this special edition of the popular “Angry Birds” franchise, the pigs are at it again and it’s up to you to get some Valentine’s Day revenge! This game is sure to keep you entertained while at the same time reminding you that Valentine’s Day is only a day away!
Just go to your “Market” icon on your phone and click the search button and type in “Angry Birds Seasons”. 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]
Movies by Flixster
Plan on going out to the movies for Valentine’s Day or some other occasion in the near future? Then this app will come in very handy… You can browse for local movie theater showtimes, watch the latest movie trailers, read reviews from Rotten Tomatoes, and even add/manage your NetFlix queue. This is a must have app! I use this app every time I’m thinking about going to the movies now. It’s just so quick and easy! [Market Link]
Photoid Valentine Edition
This version of the popular Photoid app allows you to create some fun Valentine memories using your camera and existing photos. Just take a new picture or select an existing photo on your phone and then add some fun Valentine’s Day photo effects, frames, stickers, text effects, and clipart graphics. After you’re done, you can post the photos on Facebook, upload it to Flickr, or email/text message them to a loved one.
You’ve got to try this one out! I guarantee it will make you and your significant other smile. [Market Link]
Epicurious Recipe App
By: Condé Nast Digital
Want to cook something delicious tomorrow evening for your Valentine? You better get started by looking through some recipes! The Epicurious app includes thousands of professionally tested and created recipes from renowned magazines such as Gourmet and Bon Appétit, popular cookbooks, top chefs, and leading restaurants. Epicurious has a lot of advanced features that make it stand out from all the other recipe apps on the market. One particular feature that I find extremely helpful is the “Add to Shopping List” button. Click the “Add to Shopping List” button after you find a recipe that you would like to cook and it will tell you exactly what ingredients you need to purchase at the grocery store. I also find the images of all the meals to be very helpful in helping me decide what to cook. I’m sure you’ll enjoy this app just as much as I do. I hope it helps you in cooking up some delicious meals! [Market Link]
