Android Apps of the Week! – Oct. 16, 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!”.
Stardash is a great game that has a retro 80s and 90s feel to it. The pixel-art graphic style and music makes you feel like you are playing an old Nintendo game. This side scrolling game reminds me of the old Super Mario and Megaman games in the 90s. If you loved those games then I have a feeling you are really going to enjoy this one too. It’s a fun and fast-paced game that can be played at any time!. Check out the gameplay video below.
Just go to your “Market” icon on your phone and click the search button and type in “Stardash”. 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]

Do you ever find yourself wishing that you had your dictionary available everywhere you went? Guess what… it is! Just install this app on your Android smartphone and you’ll have a Dictionary and Thesaurus with you everywhere you go. It won’t necessarily be an app that you use everyday but it can come in quite handy when you need to define a word you read or heard. I’ve used it on several occassions and found it to be a helpful app to have on my phone. [Market Link]
Mystic Halo Live Wallpaper
Mystic Halo Live Wallpaper is a simple and beautiful live wallpaper. It has a rotating pattern of rings that fade in and out with an amazing blue color. I really like it because it doesn’t create too much confusion or clutter on the screen but still shows off the fact that it is a live wallpaper with a beautiful design. Give it a try and see how great it looks on your smartphone! In order to activate the wallpaper after installation, you have to go to: Home Screen->Click Menu Button->Wallpapers->Live Wallpapers and then select “Mystic Halo Live Wallpaper”. [Market Link]
