Android Apps of the Week! – May 6, 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!”.

RealSilent is an app that should come standard on every Android smartphone. RealSilent installs as a background service that will automatically mute the media volume on your phone when you change the ringer to silent. Obviously, if I silence the phone I don’t want it to make noises… right? Well, Android by default doesn’t recognize that silence ringer means the user wants EVERYTHING silent. So this app fixes that problem and ensures that when you put your phone on silent that no other media is heard. [Market Link]
