Favorite Smartphone & Tablet Apps

Postby Sotos » Wed Nov 28, 2012 8:01 pm

Which are your favorite smartphone & tablet apps? I am using some of the most known apps like Google maps, youtube, kindle etc... but the one I use most is Taptu
https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... tu.streams It is the best newsreader I found because each stream can contain multiple sources and the streams are fully customization ... I created a custom stream with all Cyprus news :D

Don't have many apps on iPhone.

Best ones are an app through Cydia with which to download and store youtube vids.

... a digital compass, so i don't get too lost.

... a sky at night app which shows all the current positions of stars and planets.

Really? In another thread you said that your phone was "high end". Mine is low end and 1.5 years old, and on it I run things like Google Maps, Youtube, Google Talk, BeyondPod, DropBox, ezPDF Reader, TuneIn Radio, QuickOffice, WiFi Analyzer, Taptu etc.

Yes, but he is so completely biased against anything non-Apple that he couldn't bear to admit that he actually used it for anything.... :roll:

My Android phone was high-end. 1.5 years old. Runs Gingerbread, crashes a lot and the only thing I actually use it for is for calls and to see in the dark. As a mobile computing device it is very disappointing. Maybe it's because HTC haven't bothered to upgrade the OS since I bought it. But it's really horrible and cumbersome to use and the UI is just really ugly. It can run Youtube and tune in radio but having used Apple's latest IOS I can't even be bothered with the ugly HTC Sense interface. It's really put me off Android. I hear that Samsung phones are better but I have to be convinced. I've also never bought a single Android app, just use the free ones. Whereas I use a lot of high-quality Apple apps which have no equivalent on Android. That's why I'll be getting an iPhone next - even if it will be one of the cheaper older models. At least it'll run the latest Apple IOS. Just my experience. I have given it a try though but am disappointed overall.
