Android has certainly become one of the best mobile operating systems available for your smartphone. Here we have selected three best Apps you must get on your Android phone.



Though it has two flaws, not supporting multiple accounts and notifications seeming to be inconsistent at best, the official Twitter app isn’t bad, since it has got native contact integration. But the Android version of TweetDeck offers multiple filtered “columns” of tweets and each column can be configured individually for notification and refresh times. It also supports Buzz, Foursquare accounts and Facebook. Users can split the program into columns which show different things. TweetDeck interfaces with Twitscoop, 12seconds and Stocktwits and they all appear in separate columns. Users are also allowed to split the people they follow into groups. Above all, since it’s free, it’s really praise worthy.


Worldmate is a most excellent travel app that one can download in an Android phone today. It includes travel alerts for flights, flight status lookups, itinerary planning, hotel booking, directions to local destinations through links to Google Maps, Weather forecasts, currency converters and a lot other stuffs. As it’s free, it’s really worth a shot. If you have got a trip coming up, you can download Worldmate easily or hit up their links to get a closer look at features.

Active Task Manager

As Android didn’t allow proper task management and active multitasking, one of the first things people do when they get an Android Phone, is to install some sort of task kill and management app from Android Market. The consequence is people are likely to end up with unoptimized applications leaking resources and battery power, even when inactive. Gingerbread has remedied the situation with an active task manager, where it kills processes and applications when they start to hog down the handset, and haven’t been used in a while. With this now, one can easily pause the game, which is in process, to receive an email, reply and return back to the same place.
