Android Apps of the Week! – July 31, 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 a fan of Angry Birds? If so, then you are going to love Bouncy Mouse. In this game you have to slingshot a mouse to his next objective, bouncing off the walls, slamming into cats, and picking up cheese along the way. It is a simple yet highly addictive game. It’s also got some great graphics and sound. It is a must try game for all of your Android devices!
Just go to your “Market” icon on your phone and click the search button and type in “Bouncy Mouse”. 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]

From the same folks who brought you “Aquarium Live Wallpaper” comes another gem by the name of Blue Skies Live Wallpaper. Blue Skies Live Wallpaper is one of the most beautiful Live Wallpapers available on the Android Market. This app allows you to soar through the clouds on your home screen. Give it a try and see how beautiful your home screen can appear! In order to activate the wallpaper after installation, you have to go to: Home Screen->Click Menu Button->Wallpapers->Live Wallpapers and then select “Blue Skies Live Wallpaper”. [Market Link]
PicSay is a fun and easy to use photo editor app for your Android phone. This app allows you to spice up your pictures by adding word balloons, titles, graphics, and effects like distortion. All in a fun, intuitive, and easy-to-use interface. You can have some really good laughs with this app! I use it all the time to take pictures of my friends and then insert funny stuff all around them. You can then text message, email, or even upload the images to Facebook. Check it out and have some fun with it! [Market Link]
Travelocity has finally arrived on Android! This app should come in handy for planning your next vacation. It’s a great tool to use when shopping for travel deals. You can use it find hotels, flights, destinations, and book travel arrangements. Not an app that you would use every day… but definitely one that will help you out every once in awhile when you need to make travel plans. [Market Link]
