Who wants some free apps? You do? Cool. Read on.

I'm sure you've all heard of PowerAmp before. But for those who haven't, it's probably the most powerful, versatile, and customizable music player in the Play Store. And that's saying something, because there is no shortage of music players on there. So, what's so cool about it? The fact that it can do basically everything you could possibly want from a media player. That's a lot of stuff – just take a looksee.

Told you it has a lot of features.

An app that you may not have heard of, however, is the newly released InDrive. This app comes from developer Code Sector, and is essentially a super-powered Car Home replacement. It too does a lot of stuff, and it even completely integrates with PowerAmp. That's rad.

1 2 1[5]

Trip computer features:
* Street address
* Speedometer (mph, km/h or knots)
* Heading
* Battery level
* Weather (Fahrenheit or Celsius)
* Odometer
* Time traveled (total / driving / stopped)
* Average speed (total / driving)
* Max speed
* Elevation
* Time of day

Startup options:
• Enable car mode (Force the phone into car mode like it had been placed in the car dock)
• Check GPS status (Open the location settings screen if GPS is disabled)
• Turn on Bluetooth
• Disable Wi-Fi
• Set media volume (Does not affect the ringtone volume)
• Set screen brightness (Will override the automatic brightness setting if necessary)

Other settings:
• Keep screen on (Prevent the screen from locking while the app is running)
• Disable auto rotation (Turn this option on when driving on bumpy roads)
• Turn on speakerphone
• Exit on undock

Look at all those features!

Normally, PowerAmp will set you back $4 and InDrive is $2. But we like for things to be free, so we have 20 licenses of each to give away. That'll save you a few bucks, anyway.

So, how do you get your name in the hat to win one of these? Easy: just answer one simple question in the comments below.

Tell us which app you want and your favorite feature of said app.

It's pretty imperative that you put both of those things in your comment, otherwise, we may not know which app you want. Plus, we like it when people follow the rules. So, make sure to do that. Now and forever.

The giveaway is open to users across the globe and begins now. It will run until Friday, January 4th at 11:59 PM PT. After that, we'll randomly pick some winners!

Good luck!

    Actually, both apps look very intriguing, but I'm a bit of junkie when it comes to searching for and trying out media player apps for Android. I must have installed and tested at least a dozen and a half. I've yet to find the "holy grail" though, so I'd love to take PowerAmp for a spin if you still have a license to spare. Thanks for the generous offer!!

    BTW, Anyone know if PowerAmp does FLAC?
