Programs that deserve to be installed on your mobile phone
The list with games are at the bottom of the page.
If you have a phone with plenty of RAM (1G of RAM) maybe you like TuneIn Radio. If you have small ram try MR recorder which also record the stream. In my case was buggy and with lags.
Another on buggy app with problematic GUI - have patience - but ideal for recording the stream with "auto-naming" is StreamGetter.
Very good app is spotify. You listen music from play-lists. I recommend to create yours. The music is streaming from the Internet but cached to your phone. Better to use it with tablet, on phones the play-list is playing at random.
In reality I didn't like any. Try Android Download Manager.
Color Notes. The greatest note-keeper. Auto-backup, password locked / encrypted and fully configurable. Just used it!
QuickOffice. A gem program from Google for office documents. May you also like the on line versions docs / sheet, like Google Keep. I think - in comparison - other office programs are useless. For files on the cloud you can use Google Drive. Same as dropbox.
Browser for data compression (useful for mobile data)
If you browse with mobile data instead of wifi maybe you want to compress the data to use much less Mbytes. Try opera.
CSipSimple. Nice integration with record calling.
This program is so great for racing maniacs. Even outside a race track it's a great logger. RaceChrono.
Difficult to master, but it helps. The mighty osmand. More user-friendly is skobbler (it requires Internet or 1€ for offline usage) and MapFactor. For every program you have to download maps and other data like speech.
Bluetooth GPS (if you have external GPS receiver).
Geotagging is when we record our path. The tracks of Google is very good. In conjugation with Google Earth, try the play button - better with same track in different day! For raw data use nmea recorder. You may want to transform the nmea data in gps. In Linux I use the gpsbabel.
Android Lost. Find your stolen phone. The phone must have access to wifi or mobile data. Remember to activate it in device manager. Settings > Security > device administrators.
BKTaskManager. Clean Master is the popular task killer but I think it's overloaded with permissions (read contacts), so I prefer BKTaskManager.
I like to disable auto lock, and I manually lock the phone. I use Screen Lock Widget.
Led Flashlight. It requires active screen. It shutdown if the screen is inactive (I suppose a bug on Android). Preinstalled Torch in cyanogenmod is the best solution.
The only game that I hooked so much. I master it in one day to the finish in desktop computer. I don't know if it is suitable for touch in mobile phone. I suppose it's better on tablet. World of Goo (demo), Buy IT.
I didn't have much time for that, but it looks good. Pocket Rally lite. Many people have complaints about the control. The game is fine, the problem is probably on your sensors. Cheap phones have cheap sensors! Buy it.
I bought this game. Hard to master, but enjoyable. Sky Gamblers: Rise of Glory (demo). Very good multiplayer. You have to progress in game to have a better airplane in multiplayer. If you want modern air-crafts, try Sky Gamblers: Air Supremacy. Not tested.
Played on iOS, but I hope also in android will be fascinating: Real Racing 3.
I had played a demo and I liked. Strategy game. Total War Battles.
