It offers support for multiple accounts, a home page widget showing latest tweets and an amazingly smooth and professional layout. It is one of the best examples of app development today.

Google Sky Map

A spectacular app that uses your phone’s location tools to give you a precise representation of the stars and planets on your screen. Point your phone at the sky and then learn what constellations are visible, and if that’s a UFO or just Venus. Google Sky Map even works indoors, if you are not too keen to step out.

Foursquare

You might love or hate the offbeat line-drawing keyboard Swype with noteworthy amount of re-learning required to make the most of it. Once you are accustomed with the idea, though, it’s brilliant – with advanced prediction options further speeding your line-typing.

All of us lead a busy lifestyle and need constant reminders for our daily chores which includes right from buying groceries to e-mailing a presentation. Any.do is a note-taking and reminder app. It is part calendar, part dictation tool and part to-do list creator.

Amazon Kindle

Amazon’s Kindle app is a great e-reader, which is flawlessly linked with your Amazon account. Very few magazines and newspapers are available at the moment, in Android-friendly format. But for books it is great, with plenty of screen and text display options to get it looking a way that hurts your eyes the least.

Path

Path is an alternative social network, designed to make sharing things with friends easier. It does simple stuff like share your music listening history, then it does weird stuff like track how many hours you have slept. It also tracks your location so if you like to broadcast your every movement then it is possible. And if you cannot stay away from Facebook then your posts can be broadcasted there too.

Mobile Upgrades: Killing The Product Before Its Time?

Have to agree. The speed of newer phone models within the same series and newer app versions lead to more thought put into buying decisions. Phone lines have a definite short shelf life

Frequently upgrading the software is a real problem as updating the software might cause your phone to lag because of the older hardware.

They should come out with upgrades for the specific phones and not for the separate Operating System. This way a special version for your phones specific hardware can be made
