It's that time of the month again, which is to say it's time to clean up our list of the absolute best Android apps. What new apps will show up? Which apps get cut?


Google Docs: The native Google Docs app acts more like a documents manager to search, find and share all your documents than a text editor (as you'll be routed to the online web editor to make changes) but is still plenty good. Also: the OCR function to turn images into Google Docs is great. Free

CNN: You get to watch live video, receive breaking news notifications, tune into CNN radio, use a customizable widget and more. Pretty much a must have for news junkies. Free.

Epistle: A super simple and great looking text editor that syncs with Dropbox. Your notes are saved in a plain text file, the titles are searchable and the syncing is super fast. Great for those who don't need all the bells and whistles. Free.

NFL Mobile: It's only available for Verizon customers but NFL Mobile gives you live game video, live game audio, news, highlights and more. Heck, you get to stream the NFL Network 24/7. Free.

HBO Go: If you're smart enough to order HBO with your cable, HBO Go will let you watch every episode of every season of The Sopranos, The Wire, Deadwood, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Rome, and any other awesome show HBO has ever made. Oh, and you can stream movies too. Free.


Chomp: Chomp makes finding Android apps so much easier but isn't as essential since the much improved Android Market website is around now.
