BEFORE I BEGIN...These apps are based on applications I've used on certain Android devices. Apps are based on devices I've used. These are devices I've used, and for which my app recommendations are based on:
• Samsung Galaxy Player 3.6 (uses Android "Gingerbread")
• Samsung Galaxy Player 4.2 (uses Android "Gingerbread")
One other important thing to note is that these are all apps you can get from Google Play. So while you can upload almost whatever you want (even on a rooted Android device), this is a "better safe than sorry" list of Android apps I enjoy. With this said... let's begin with this post.
NOTE: I am not paid to discuss each featured app in the way I do. They are all discussed solely on personal opinion.
--- Favorite Android Apps ---
^ from: www.infosecurity-magazine.com (links to article) (best image I could find to represent this post - So many applications (or apps) to choose from! Which are some of my favorites, though? Find out in this blog post!
There are so many different apps available for Android. Some may be Android-exclusive. Some others are for both Android and iOS and other mobile operating systems. I have long wanted to share some of the many Android apps I've used and enjoyed. This post was made available so I can share and recommend certain Android apps I use. Perhaps, some of the ones you see here may be some that you use! The initial date of this post only indicates some of the latest apps I enjoy using. Now in no way am I addicted to apps. However, I do want to share some of the many apps I use and enjoy willingly. So if you want to know some apps I'd recommend for a number of purposes, you've come to the right place and the right blog post.
Please note that all of these are based on the information posted earlier in this post- there may be some apps exclusive to Samsung as well as some apps that can all be found on Google Play. While you can download almost any app made available for Android devices- even on a rooted Android device, I want to make this post safe for everyone by featuring apps you can safely download through Google Play. Each of the links should take you to Google Play, where you can learn more about each featured app for your Android device.
I may update this blog post to include more apps I would recommend. So you may want to check for updates. Look for "UPDATED..." text at the top of this blog post to seek the latest updates or revisions.
Also note that not every app featured here may not be compatible with every Android device. Be sure to check Google Play to know what apps are and are not compatible with devices you've registered on Google Play.
Here are a list of apps I've used before and liked.
FM Radio (exclusive to Samsung).One of the selling points of the Samsung Galaxy Player portable media players is FM Radio. The app allows you to listen to FM radio in your area. It is important I tell you that you need to have headphones to be able to access the FM Radio. The headphones act sort of as a receiver to help you receive the radio signal. The app allows you to store as few as four stations and as many as eight. When I used my Samsung Galaxy Player 3.6, I could only store four. My Samsung Galaxy Player 4.2 can store eight radio stations.
News and Weather.The News and Weather app with base Android allows you to get news and weather updates in a simple program. What I love most about this app is that you can choose certain news topics that may interest you. Each topic you can choose from and choose to get news on is met with about 10 articles in that category from a variety of sources. For example, I use this app to get only certain news topics that interest me. I specially chose to get some kind of racing news. So what I did was specifically get my racing news from www.motorsport.com.
As for weather, you can choose to get your weather from certain sources. I prefer AccuWeather.
This program comes with widgets you can use for your Home screens. You can choose to show news, weather, or news and weather. The only real problem I have sometimes is that the device may often mess up my exact location. The app will say I'm located in South Houston or Pasadena sometimes- and I may be just at home here in Houston! So sometimes, you kind of have to refresh the material to reflect your actual location.
Memo.I sometimes use the Memo app just to take down some quick notes to quickly reference to when I need to. I am uncertain as to whether or not this is for more current versions of Android, but at least the one I use for Android "Gingerbread" is very reliable and simple to use for typing in quick messages to quickly reference to things when I want to make certain quick notes.

Again- if I find any more apps that I use and love, I will be sure to update this blog post as many times as need be. You may even recommend me some apps if you so choose. I'll be sure to have a look at them if my device(s) can support the app.
--- Android Apps: Special Request! ---I want to share this with you all. If you enjoyed my blog post on Android apps, I'd like to direct your attention to the link below this paragraph. If you shop on Amazon, you are free to shop for Android apps and games by using the link below. All or most of apps you could get on Google Play can also be had on Amazon. I would appreciate your business if you found any Android apps you will enjoy using. Apps both free and paid are available here. Your involvement is voluntary (meaning you don't have to do this if you don't want to), but you can visit this link below to find a variety of Android apps for your Android device:
Amazon.com: Apps for Android
The one thing I am unsure of is that some apps may not be compatible with your device. Even still, you can properly see if your device(s) can support certain apps by visiting Google Play (formerly Android Market).
I wanted to do this topic for a long time here on "John's Blog Space." I am glad I finally rolled out this post for you all. Thank you for reading!
