Android Apps of the Week! – October 2, 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!”.
Muffin Knight FREE
By: Angry Mob Games
Muffin Knight is a hilarious game filled with stunning visuals and a myriad of fairytale characters, each with their own unique abilities, which gain strength as you advance. The goal of the game is to return the old fairy’s magical muffins. But with each muffin you touch, it turns you into a different creature. Play as 15 different characters, each with their unique special attacks. My personal favorite has got to be the unicorn character which poops out a rainbow bomb. LOL, It is too funny. You’ve got to give this game a try, it’s incredibly entertaining and fun.
Just go to your “Market” icon on your phone and click the search button and type in “Muffin Knight Free”. 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]
Looking for an alternative to the stock web browser on your Android device? The Firefox web browser would be a great one for you to try out. The Mozilla Firefox Web browser brings the best of desktop browsing to mobile. It’s fast, easy to use and customizable, with the latest security and privacy features to help you stay safe online. For a complete list of features check out this link: http://mozilla.org/mobile/features. [Market Link]
Hipmunk is a great little app that takes the agony out of searching for flights. With Hipmunk you’ll see all the relevant flights on a timeline, helping you visualize the right choice. Unlike every other app out there, Hipmunk doesn’t just show you the cheapest flight first — the app instead sorts by “agony,” which incorporates important factors like how long you’ll be traveling and how many stops you’ll make. Give it a try the next time you are looking to book a flight. Hopefully it’ll save you lots of time and money! [Market Link]

Pixlr-o-matic is a really great app that allows you to add retro effects to your photos. Turn your photos into cool looking vintage images – editing is as easy as one, two, three. With this fun and simple darkroom app, you can layer filters, lighting and borders to get that retro grunge look in three simple steps. So many options to choose from, there are 25,000 possible finishes for any one image! Share your vintage image directly with your friends through Facebook or export your finished image back to your gallery. This is one of my new favorite apps… hope you enjoy it as well! [Market Link]
