Android Apps of the Week! – March 25, 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 has over 400,000 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!”.
Angry Birds Space
By: Rovio Mobile
The original Angry Birds is one of my all time favorite Android games. So you know how excited I was to hear that they were releasing a new edition of the game… in SPACE! Angry Birds Space features 60 interstellar levels on planets and in zero gravity, resulting in spectacular gameplay ranging from slow-motion puzzles to lightspeed destruction. With regular free updates, brand new birds, brand new superpowers, and a whole galaxy to explore, the sky is no longer the limit!
Want to check it out for yourself? Just go to the “Market” icon on your phone and click the search button and type in “Angry Birds Space”. 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]

I found this app the other day and thought to myself, “Wow, why didn’t I think of that!”. RingDimmer listens to the world around you to calculate the perfect ring volume. Phone always blowing up in a meeting? Can’t ever tell you’re getting a call in the club? RingDimmer listens to the world around you to intelligently calculate the perfect ring volume and vibration setting. It keeps you from having to constantly change your phone volume settings. It is a really great idea for an app… and it works!
* Ring volume never too quiet or too loud
* Smart Vibrate feature intelligently sets vibrate mode
* Designed to conserve your battery
