ZDbox: ZDbox for Android is an "all-in-one" toolbox app that makes it easy to find out what's going on in your phone: you get exact battery percentage and traffic usage (with alerts!) and can set a do not disturb time range, lock apps (like Gmail or messaging) and batch uninstall unwanted apps. Super easy to use. Still in beta but works really well.


PewPew: A completely free, Geometry Wars-esque laser shooting game. There's four game modes and there's really no better title for a game like this than pewpew.

Garmin Mechanic: When you're on a trip, Garmin Mechanic can calculate your total trip distance, average speed, and estimated mileage. When you pair the app with Garmin's ecoRoute HD module (a $90 accessory), the app will be able to read real-time performance data and show live gauges, throttle position, intake pressure and more. It's like transplanting the brain and dashboard of your car into your Android phone.
