As any Android user will tell you, the Android application market is the best. Because, Android app designers and makers don’t have to jump through hoops to get their apps out on the market as they do with the Apple app market, the Android market is flooded with thousands of mobile applications. Obviously this has both its upside and its downside.
With thousands of applications out there it can be particularly difficult to decipher the good apps from the bad apps and the must-have apps from the great apps. Almost every application offers both a free version and a paid full or pro version. These three apps are absolute must-have tools for productivity and fun. While you may have to shell out 2 to 10 bucks, it will be well worth the cost.
