Reckless Racing: The recently released, top-down racing game just missed our App Battle but it definitely would have placed had we gotten our hands on it sooner. Even though the game is played from a bird's eye view, the graphics are stellar and it's pretty damn addictive. Just watch the game trailer and you'll be hooked. $2.99
Documents to Go 3.0: It's a free update for Docs to Go users and $15 for those who've yet to pay up. Docs to Go 3.0 brings a brand new interface that looks great. It also offers Google Docs support, a better file browser, and desktop syncing. If you need to handle documents and Office-type files on the go, Docs to Go gives more features and does it better than the competition. $14.99
Yahoo! Fantasy Basketball (and hockey): Fantasy Basketball may be small time compared to its Football and Baseball cousins but for hardcore basketball fans like myself, it's equally important. I, along with millions of users, use Yahoo! to host my leagues and with its Android app, I can keep track of matchups, standings and add/drop players. It's a little cumbersome to edit your lineups and it's pretty much a carbon copy of the mobile web interface, but I'll take it over nothing. Hopefully, updates can bring it on par with the Fantasy Football app.
On The Fly: The best way to book flights is to stick with one airline and fly the hell out of them. The second best way? Compare flight costs against every airline and go for the cheapest option everytime. On The Fly does that second best way really well. Basically you plug in your flight info (dates, times, airports) and it'll spit back a neat and tidy chart with all the airlines that meets your requests. The downside is that after all that comparison shopping, you'll have to book the ticket with the airline itself as On The Fly doesn't provide a booking service.
Winamp: WTF, Winamp? It's still alive! Winamp brings me back to teenage memories of listening to music downloaded from Napster, 56k modems, and beige boxes. Sam I am Biddle, fondly remembers his Winamp days too but says the Android app (still in beta) is much improved:
This isn't the bare bones MP3 player you probably knew way back-the beta boasts sophisticated features.Winamp on Android will, for instance, allow for wireless syncing with your computer's library, let you fully control it via widget, and offers scrobbling support for you Last.fm fans.
I'm going to use it just so I can say I gots the Winamp on my Android phone yos.
A quick reminder to all Android 2.2 users to update the official YouTube app. They'll see the new UI (it looks much cleaner), a personalized homescreen, better controls and if you rotate the phone when playing a video, it switches to fullscreen playback.
Really does look a lot better.
Logitech Harmony: Google TV is pretty damn exciting but there's no way in hell I'm going to be using ridiculous remotes like Sony's. Luckily, Logitech is looking out for me by delivering a sweet Harmony-powered Android app for the Logitech Revue. It's a companion remote app (which requires a Revue) that turns your Android phone into a full-fledged remote. I'm going to love it because I always lose the damned remote but never my phone.
AT&T U-Verse: For AT&T Android phones and AT&T U-Verse customers, the U-Verse Android app can control your home DVR and check the guide to see what's on. For those with qualifying plans (U300 or higher) users can download TV shows on Wi-Fi to watch on their Android phones later. I originally wanted FIOS at my apartment, but they didn't have it. U-Verse sounded good too, but I couldn't get that either. I'm stuck with Time Warner. Sigh. Enjoy this app for me guys.
