30 Day Challenge: My Must Have Android Apps, Day 7

I didn’t get my post written yesterday as I went to the Indians game (which they lost). What I DID do was download a couple apps which would come in handy at the game.

Of course, the fact that I barely pulled my phone out of my pocket during the game had no bearing on the usefulness of these apps…

Camera ZOOM FX – Say the words “camera phone” and the response “iPhone” usually comes back at you. While Android phones have come a long way in terms of camera and picture quality, the stock phone app still leaves something to be desired. Camera ZOOM FX is a free app which replaces the stock camera app as your phone’s default and brings a lot to the table for the price. Features like photo editing, image filters, and image stabilization are all very useful especially for somebody like me who can’t hold a phone steady to save my life. I can also program hardware buttons to perform tasks, such as snapping a picture with the volume up button. Photos can be saved to the phone and also shared via your favorite social media services.

Twicca – Speaking of social media services, here is my first app recommendation in that department. If you are a Twitter user, this free app has more functionality than the official Twitter app, including small things like not starting at the top of your feed when you refresh it. Sharing items like web pages through Twicca is also better as the official app just puts a link in the post. Twicca fills in the title and site name as well. It’s the little things, after all. 😀
