    Google Fit - Fitness Tracking

    Google Inc.

    205530 ratings

    Fitness Tracker from Google. Well, just a pedometer really. It depends on other apps and you to tracks activities of other kinds. But, it does know if you're lazy - it can tell walking about casually inside the house apart from deliberate brisk...

  • 7 Minute Workout 7 Minute Workout

    7 Minute Workout

    Simple Design Ltd.

    357355 ratings

    Helps you perform the high-intensity 7-minute workout. I do a couple of these a day, and I'm a puddle of immobile flesh... and I never do it again. But, whatever... As a bonus, it let's you keep track of your activity on a calendar, and...

    HERE Apps LLC

    Oh look - a Nokia app for Android, finally available for Android mobiles at large. I must admit though - it does not disappoint.

    freshbits GmbH

    162 ratings

    This app provides a simple interface to share location for a set limited time with contacts. Upon starting a session, a link can be shared to any other app, which directs to a webpage showing your location. This is a lot like an earlier app,...

  • Lumosity - Brain Training Lumosity - Brain Training

    Lumosity - Brain Training

    Lumos Labs, Inc.

    167872 ratings

    This app is a port of the Lumosity.com site, more or less. It includes a set of games which purportedly improve cognitive abilities. I can't really say that it has helped. But, I've hardly used it for a week yet... I probably should have started...

  • Money Lover - Money Manager Money Lover - Money Manager

    Money Lover - Money Manager

    Finsify

    90432 ratings

    Look at that pig! Is it not a cute pig? Reminds me of Waddles from Gravity Falls... Anyway, it's another expense/income logging app. Again, it is not as feature-rich as Expense Manager. Again, it looks better than Expense Manager. It provides...

  • Noded: Smart Timeline Calendar Noded: Smart Timeline Calendar

    Noded: Smart Timeline Calendar

    Braindrop Labs

    245 ratings

    Here's an app that presents a to-do list as a timeline. It goes perfectly with Sunrise Calendar's "Calendar as a Timeline" paradigm! ...Well, not really. This looks very different, and is much more minimalist. It doesn't even notify you at the...

    Foursquare Swarm: Check In

    Foursquare

    391309 ratings

    The check-in and social features from Foursquare are a separate app now. Unfortunately, the option to make check-ins private seems to be missing. I want the badges and all. But, I don't think my friends need to know EVERY TIME I check into the...

  • 24h Analog Clock Widget 24h Analog Clock Widget

    24h Analog Clock Widget

    staticfree.info

    373 ratings

    Here's a 24-hour Clock Widget, released before the "XKCD: Now"-inspired apps, I believe. It's not as informative as those apps. But, it still satisfies the need for clock apps with 24-hour analogue layouts.

  • XKCD Now Widget\Live Wallpaper XKCD Now Widget\Live Wallpaper

    XKCD Now Widget\Live Wallpaper

    Reshef Elisha

    111 ratings

    It's inspired by an interactive strip on XKCD. It's a 24-hour analogue clock design. It tells you when to call or to not call people. It's the perfect clock for me. [I still message people just whenever, though.]

  • 90night: SleepyTime Calculator 90night: SleepyTime Calculator

    Jonathan Nakhla

    1861 ratings

    From the developer of Meet Me Halfway, here is an app to assist you with sleeping. It assists you in setting optimally timed alarms - either for going to bed, or for waking up, depending on which of the two you specify. It relies on the notion that...

    MindMe

    This is the alarm clock app that smartphones were made for! ...more or less. After all those times fantasizing about my mobile waking me up a spoken greeting, weather report and list of appointments; I was sorely disappointed at the lack of such an...

  • Cookpad Cookpad

    Cookpad

    Cookpad International Ltd.

    68920 ratings

    I'm not much of a cook… at all, really. But, this does present me with endless ideas to try cooking (and mostly fail at).

  • aTimeLogger - Time Tracker aTimeLogger - Time Tracker

    aTimeLogger - Time Tracker

    BGCI

    8616 ratings

    A Time Logger [waka waka!] app to track the time you spend on various activities, without Pomodoro. It takes a little work to set up the categories for yourself. But, being conscious of your activities is worth spending half an hour to setup the app...

    Having my phone's Mobile Data connection on constantly is troublesome. Therefore, it is not always possible to use use Google Goggles. So, here's an app to take care of the Barcode & QR Code -recognition, at least.

  • Budget Budget

    Flatly

    1004 ratings

    Here's an expense manager app I find myself liking. It has its shortcomings. But, it seems to be receiving very frequent updates. Moreover, it visualises an optimal expense plan according to the income, overlaid on a graph of the previous month's...

  • Climatip Climatip

    Climatip

    Rocktaps

    1380 ratings

    Here is the best Weather app in my opinion - it tells you if you should change your outfit. After all, that is the main purpose of any weather app - to know whether to wear my sweater and boots, or to go about in shorts and flip-flops.

  • Clockwork Tomato Clockwork Tomato

    Clockwork Tomato

    phlam

    7523 ratings

    If you have heard of the Pomodoro method of productivity, this is a good looking timer app meant to be used for that. If you haven't heard/read about it yet, you really should.

  • Darker (Screen Filter) Darker (Screen Filter)

    Darker (Screen Filter)

    mlhgdevelopment

    13376 ratings

    Another screen-darkening app. This one doesn't auto-dim gradually with the time of the the day, and doesn't auto-start on boot unless purchased. But, it provides a greater choice of colours for the display filter - if you're into that for whatever...

    Duolingo: Learn Languages Free

    Duolingo

    3686837 ratings

    Yay! A green owl! The earlier logo had it merely perched, like stuffed roadkill. This one looks positively lively with its shining eyes and spread wings. And it can help me learn another language! … Oh. You want me to actually learn a language w...

    Evernote - stay organized.

    Evernote Corporation

    1432688 ratings

    I haven't paid much attention to Ever note in the past, simply because it's so feature-rich. Something like Google Keep or Holo Notes suit my needs better. But, the new provision for storing handwritten notes has me intrigued.

  • Expense Manager Expense Manager

    Expense Manager

    Bishinews

    52988 ratings

    This would be my expense manager of choice for manual entry, if I had not found Monas. It's quite feature rich, and fairly easy to use given an hour to get familiar. I just don't feel a need for all the features.

  • FacesIn FacesIn

    FacesIn

    Wizi

    2048 ratings

    Aggregates location check-ins by your contacts on Facebook, Foursquare, Twitter & LinkedIn; and presents them on Map and Timeline. It alerts you of any nearby check-ins by them, so that you can think of catching up in person rather than typing away...

    British Red Cross

    4509 ratings

    You probably need to learn first aid, and it would help to have this in times of emergency as well. There are many such apps to pick from. But, I like the look of this one, from the British Red Cross.

  • FireChat FireChat

    FireChat

    Open Garden

    41142 ratings

    Conceptually cool and functionally rudimentary, it's an off-grid chatroom app with two sections: A topic-less public chatroom for "Everyone", which is as messy and annoying as you might imagine; and a somewhat more private chatroom to connect with...

    Roman Tymchyk

    27 ratings

    Fuel Tracking app by the dev of Squawk. It looks nice. It's easy to use. And it has all the features I need. [Then again, I don't drive often, and refill my tank even more rarely.]

    Now that I have a mobile running Android 4.2, I can honestly tell you how Google Now isn't useful for me, personally, because I don't go out much. But, I won't, because my father does seem to find it useful. So, you might too. Why I bothered to...

  • Google Goggles Google Goggles

    Google Goggles

    Google Inc.

    333540 ratings

    Google's image recognition app. Claims to be able to recognize still objects, furniture, landmarks & buildings, text and barcodes among other things. It only reliably recognizes text and barcodes though. Also, it needs data connection. So, yeah…

    Maps - Navigation & Transit

  • HabitHub Habit & Goal Tracker HabitHub Habit & Goal Tracker

    HabitHub Habit & Goal Tracker

    Randome Studios

    7588 ratings

    A newer habit-tracking app, with a more appealing and useful (in my opinion) visual representation of how well you re following habits. It's not as fun as Life RPG, but is certainly more useful for me. It shows you a week of activity, either with...

  • HealthifyMe Weight Loss Coach HealthifyMe Weight Loss Coach

    HealthifyMe Weight Loss Coach

    HealthifyMe

    10325 ratings

    Meal Logging, Workout Logging & Weight Logging, with a focus on the average Indian resident. In essence, it is the Indian equivalent of Noom Weight Loss Coach. It doesn't have all the features Noom does, but it is promising.

    Have you ever wished that you mobile chimed every hour like your fancy/cheap digital watch? Have you ever wanted it to chime half-hourly, or quarter-hourly even? [I hate you. Set it to Vibrate instead!] Well, this is the app for you. You can set up...

  • Hydro drink water Hydro drink water

    Hydro drink water

    Freshware

    47244 ratings

    Until Noom gets a water consumption counter to go with the food tracker, you can use this. [Hint, Hint, Noom devs!] It's clean and functional. Of course, it's blue-on-white, unlike Noom. So, you know it's a different app.

    Ah, the amateur astronomer's best friend… or only friend if you don't get out much. The app is fairy detailed. But, having to depend on the mobile's sensors lends it a significant amount of inaccuracy. Still, it's quite useful when looking up at t...
