So there are a lot of Android Back to School app lists floating around (like this one and this one) and most pull out the same old “back to school”-esque apps (Dropbox, Evernote, etc..). Now these aren’t awesome apps – they’re just way too common to be “discovered”. Here’s my top 10 list of apps – many you might not have ever heard of. You can find them all in the Market, just search by name:
Because the stock launcher is just not as cool
Sometimes you want to shoot a cool picture out to everyone through ping.fm – Twitter followers, facebookees, gchat status watchers, that guy you know who uses buzz, etc..
8. App Protector Pro
So you can let others play with your phone without wondering if they found that sextmessage
If you don’t geocache, you might want to start – it’s a fun way to explore your new campus (or your old one).
When was the last time I called Mom asking for money? When was the last time I called Mom period?!? Or when Mom says “You never call”, you can reply “Yes, I do, 2 Wednesdays ago about 9 PM”.
5. Google Translate
Know what the foreign kids are saying
Because funny stuff will happen, and this can add the extra laugh to make your facebook photo post hilarious!
3. StopWatch (
Sometimes you need to time stuff, in lab classes, in real life, etc…
A quick game, that’s addicting, and free.
and Jon’s #1 App:
1. 3Banana Notes
Easily sync up stuff on your phone to computer. For example, jot down that hotties phone number while chatting in class, sync it, and later when your phone is dead, you can call her and ask her to bring you to a power source!.
