Featured App

Tasks N Todos - ToDo List Manager

Tasks N Todos is a TODO manager from Handy Apps, the developer of such well received apps as Easy Money and Tip N Split Tip Calculator. Tasks N Todos combines a pleasant interface with powerful functions, and supports both tablets and phones (see screenshots of both UIs below), including Ice Cream Sandwich.

The app synchronizes with Google Tasks using the official Tasks API, so you won't have to worry about losing your data - it lives in the cloud. Yup, that also means tasks are synchronized between all your Android devices.

You can create one-time and recurring tasks, drag and drop them, set reminders, swipe between lists, and slice and dice your data using filters and sorts. Widgets and backup/restore functionality goes without saying - what respectable tasks app would omit those, right?

Grab the free full-featured version of Tasks N Todos or go for the Pro version that adds a few premium features (multiple photo attachments, custom ringtones) here.

SwitchMe for Root Users

Android Police coverage: [New App] SwitchMe Lets You Swap Between Multiple Android Profiles On A Single (Rooted) Device

SwitchMe is a unique application for root users that allows you to log in and out of multiple installations of Android just as you would on a desktop computer. The technology behind SwitchMe saves all of your applications and data, protects it and stores it as a file in memory. You can then log out of an account and log into a fresh installation of Android or another account with its own unique content. You may create as many profiles as the memory is capable of holding. Some of these may require very little free memory because they contain few apps, others will be larger as they contain many applications and lots of cache and data. This application works best on tablet devices with large internal memory cards, so users may experience issues related to applications and their data stored on handset SD cards. Read the help carefully to avoid issues!

ICS Enhanced Ringer Control

Does it annoy you that in Android 4.0 (ICS) the ability to unlink the Notification and Ringer volume has been removed? It annoys the heck out of me! At night time I want my notification volume muted, but my ringer volume turned up so I don't miss calls. It has bugged me so much since I switched to ICS that I decided to write an app to "work around" the issue. So, what does the app do? Well when your phone rings or receives an SMS it tells the phone to ignore the system sound settings in regards to notification volume/vibration, and uses the settings specified within this app instead.

Syncly - Your Photo Sync

Not as powerful as DropSync, plus Dropbox is now beta testing automatic sync, but it could be a nice app if moer features are added. Plus, it's free, unlike DropSync's automatic experience (it's still by far my favorite though).

--

With Syncly you can automatically upload pictures to your Dropbox. A new app is on the way. That is nothing new, but this app will certainly make your life easier.

--

Here's how it works: unlike making an international call directly from your Android phone (where you would have to pay expensive outbound roaming charges), with Call2 you only have the cost of receiving a much cheaper, inbound roaming call saving you lots of money.

--

    Love AirCalc and SwitchMe - its been a killer couple of weeks for apps!

  • Norbert

    amuse and network spoofer are not "new apps" on the market. i've been using amuse since december 2011 and network spoofer since september 2011.

    • http://www.AndroidPolice.com Artem Russakovskii

      A very small number of apps listed were indeed released earlier, but were only brought to our attention in the last week or so. As it says at the top: "that went live in the Market or were spotted by us in the previous 2 weeks or so."

  • BeatBlaster

    Network Spoofer is downright evil (in a good way)!

  • Mike

    Storage Analyzer is a great, probably the best, file and storage manager app in the Market. It has a nice and easy to use Ice Cream Sandwich UI with many extra features. Although it was released earlier than 2 weeks ago (which is why I'm commenting instead of emailing), I'd definitely recommend it for the next roundup of the best Android apps.

  • Bas

    That WTF game is actually funny >.<

  • http://www.my-guides.net Muse

    I was using GTasks to sync my tasks with Google Tasks but I didn't like its look. I'll give Tasks N Todos a try!
