Android Apps of the Week: Instagram, Quick Terminal, and More


Quick Terminal: Terminal apps aren't exactly known for being efficient as far as UI goes. QuickTerminal at least makes things a little easier on you by letting you store specific commands and assigning them to different shortcuts. The app already includes several basic commands like rebooting into recovery or wiping the Dalvik cache. However, you can easily add in custom commands and run them from a menu. You can even run your very own custom scripts. [Free]

Instagram: Thanks to Instagram's newest update, you can finally upload content straight from your camera roll (which is still more than we can say for Vine). PLUS there's finally Video for Instagram support on Ice Cream Sandwich. The updates are live for both and Android right now. [Free]


Floating YouTube Popup Video: If you want one of the Samsung's Galaxy best features (the ability to have videos floating on your phone while you're doing something else in the background) but don't want a Galaxy, we have your solution right here. The app allows you to open up a YouTube video in a small windows that you're then free to swipe around at your leisure. You can search within the window and use pinch gestures to resize the it. Obviously, this works better the larger your screen is, but for users with tablets or large smartphones, you should be perfectly fine. [Free]


GQueues: To-do apps are a dime a dozen, but that almost makes it even harder to find the one that's just right for you. If you're still on the hunt, give GQueues a try. It has all of the features you would expect from a solid to-do app: recurring items, tagging and categories to keep your lists organized and separate, subtasks and dependencies, drag-and-drop reordering, and public task sharing so you can delegate items to other people, whether they're using GQueues or not. GQueues also features "Smart Queues," or pre-defined categories that help you see just overdue items, things you have to do today, or just important items. [Free]
