Welcome to the weekly roundup of the best new Android applications, games, and live wallpapers that went live in the Market or were spotted by us in the previous 2 weeks or so.

This is the app roundup. The game roundup from this week can be found here and the tablet app roundup here.

Please wait for this page to load in full in order to see the AppBrain widgets, which include ratings and pricing info.

Looking for the previous roundup editions? Find them here.

Featured App

Today's roundup is sponsored by HeroCraft's latest game - Musaic Box. Our own Liam Spradlin reviewed this game a few weeks back and found it to be excellent for both lovers of puzzle/hidden object games and music. In HeroCraft's own words:

--

Musaic Box is an unusual combination of musical puzzle and a detective quest. Its scenario offers you a riddle: to find the old organ master who has vanished.

Solving various quests and gathering the clues just like in other classic hidden object games you'll find outlines of musical scores for your music box and reveal exclusive puzzles where you have to recreate masterpieces of classical and modern music out of smaller pieces.

Unlike other puzzles, Musaic requires not just logic but a sense of musicality. Correctly composed melodies will lead you to the mystery's revelation and unlock new game mode.

A free Lite and a $1.49 paid versions are available in the Market.

ViBe

Caller ID with vibration patterns. Feel who’s calling you. “Vibe” is like Caller ID but with Vibration Patterns. Pick a contact and set a unique vibration pattern – it's that easy. Whether you’re in an office meeting, class, or on a movie date, there’s no need to pull out your phone anymore to see who’s calling because you’ll feel it. If ringtones can be customized to help you recognize a contact, why not let your phone’s vibrations indicate who’s on the other end of the line?

Keyboard Swap for Tasker

*Requires Tasker (or Locale), Root AND Read/Write permissions on the /system partition*

Have a keyboard that you like for one app but not another? This app is actually a plugin for Tasker or Locale that, when triggered, will set your software keyboard to the selected input method. Essentially, if you have a keyboard you like for sending texts, another for browsing the net and a third for something more complex like ConnectBot, one can setup profiles that detect those apps and change the keyboard to your favorite. Alternatively, one could switch between two keyboards depending on the screen orientation, the time of day, or anything else that Tasker can detect.

TypeSmart (Beta)

We've seen many keyboards out there, but really, the only reason this one is here is due to a built-in translator mode. Although with Google Translate APIs going from free to paid, I'm not sure how much longer the keyboard will support this feature.

--

Type faster and smarter with the most advanced keyboard replacement for Android phones. Unique features make it easy to type almost anything in fewer presses than other keyboards.

  • Learning dictionary suggests next-word predictions based on your typing history.
  • Advanced real-time spell-checker makes typos nearly impossible, and faulty corrections almost obsolete.

Voxer Walkie Talkie - PTT

Voxer turns your phone into a Walkie Talkie and allows you to stop wasting time on phone calls and voicemails. Voxer is a Walkie Talkie app for Android and iOS. You can send instant Audio, Text, Photo and Location messages to one or a group of your friends. Your friends can listen to your message while you talk or check it out later.

  • LIVE WALKIE TALKIE - Faster than HeyTell
  • Talk with friends on Android and iPhone devices
  • VOICE, TEXT, PHOTOS and LOCATION
  • GROUP CHATS
  • EVERYTHING is FREE
  • No annoying advertisements
  • Works over WiFi, 3G any other data network
  • Get notifications for new messages
  • Play voice messages faster
  • Connect INSTANTLY with Facebook FRIENDS that are using Voxer
  • Create messages even offline. They will be sent as soon as you reconnect

Why is Voxer better than traditional voice messaging apps such as Hey Tell, Talkbox Voice Messenger, TiKL - Touch to Talk and WhatsApp Messenger? Traditional voice messengers first record your message and only once you are done talking the message is sent. This means that your friends can start listening to your message only once you are done recording it. However, Voxer sends your message as you are recording it and your friends can listen to it as you are talking. Voxer save you time, for free.

What about VoIP applications such as Skype, Viber : Free Calls and Messages and Tango Voice Calls? Lets face it, voice calling is not fun. You never know if you are interrupting your friend while they are doing something important. If they don't answer your call, you have to talk to their voicemail. Also, if you were patient enough to listen to their voicemail greeting and leave them a voicemail, now they have to dial into their voicemail before they can know the reason for your call. There must be a more efficient way to talk to your friends. This is where Voxer comes into play.
