Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but you had no excuse for being unproductive this week.

Keep: Google's once mysterious new note-taking service is finally here to stay, and though basic compared to similar programs such as Evernote, the benefit here is that it's extraordinarily well integrated with Android. You'll get homescreen and lock screen widgets, voice and photo integration, and a Holo interface to boot. Free

Sidewalk Buddy: Everyone knows that driving and texting is a highly dangerous recipe for disaster, but walking and texting can be just as troubling. So for those of you that just can't quit, Sidewalk Buddy uses your device's rear camera to give you a floating, live video feed so you can essentially see through your phone without ever missing a text. Just please, please don't try to use it while driving. Free

Instructables: You may already be familiar with the web version of Instructables, a website that offers you all sorts of DIY projects, be they lifehacking, artsy, or ever practical.
