Android Apps of the Week! – Sept. 25, 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!”.
Meganoid 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!
Just go to your “Market” icon on your phone and click the search button and type in “Meganoid”. 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]

Stitcher is one of those apps that I install immediately after I setup a new device. I use it on a daily basis to listen to podcasts in my car and at the gym. But it does a lot more than just podcasts! Stitcher lets you listen to your favorite news, sports, talk and entertainment shows via thousands of live local AM/FM stations and podcasts. Get the latest content from premier sources including NPR, CNN, Fox, BBC, Carolla, Rush and more delivered on demand, directly to your Android phone without syncing or downloading. It’s one of those apps you just gotta install and try before you can really appreciate it. Give it a try today! [Market Link]

Jorte is a personal organizer and calendar app designed to make your life a little easier. The app was created to resemble the look and feel of a real paper personal organizer with an appealing appearance and ease of use. Calendars are displayed in a monthly or weelky view and the display will rotate automatically if you turn your device sideways. You can also install a widget on one of your home screens so that you can see your calendar easily without having to launch the app. It’s an extremely customizable app that should help you organize your life.
