I recently asked my Twitter followers what their favorite Android application was. I got a lot of replies and I was happily surprised by the wide variety of apps mentioned. I often mention apps and games I like on Twitter but this little experiment convinced me it would be nice to do the same on this blog and spend more time to talk about each app. Don’t expect full reviews or ratings, just thoughts about applications and games I enjoy using or I find useful. I will probably talk about some apps I found about thanks to your awesome replies to my Twitter question.
To open this new series of articles, I would like to start by showing you my home screen. I use an unmodified version of “stock” Android running on a NexusOne (and I won’t tell you which version I am running.)
Among these various applications and games, the ones I use the most these days are Gmail, Talk and TweetDeck. Since I work at Google the first two are hardly surprising. I was using the official Twitter application until I saw so many people recommend TweetDeck yesterday. Aside from a few bugs and a couple of minor gripes I really like it so far.
