WinkIt-Thumb

Wink It Keyboard may not yet be the most obnoxious Android keyboard, but give it time, it's still in beta. This product comes from the developers of Adaptxt Keyboard, which made a name for itself by being feature-rich and customizable. Wink It's approach is decidedly less useful. Its goal is not to improve your typing. Oh no, it wants to change the way you use emoticons. It sticks various images in the suggestion bar as you type, encouraging you to stick them into your messages more often.

BestBuds-Thumb

Much of the software we've come to know and love comes fresh out of Silicon Valley, but startup Novel Innovation chose a different region to sprout its vision. There were only a few environments conducive to growing its mobile product, but in the high lands of Denver, Colorado, the team could cultivate their dream unencumbered. With its new app, the company wants to help locals and tourists alike find their way to medicinal and newly legalized marijuana.

AutoPebble-Thumb

The Pebble is a humble smartwatch, and this is one of its biggest strengths. It doesn't have a color screen, it can hardly do anything without being paired to a phone, and the functions it supports out of the box are very limited. But the device has the support of a large community, and this greatly expands its usefulness for people who want to do more with their $149 purchase. AutoPebble is one of the more complex apps to hit the platform, as it pretty much does for Pebble what Tasker does for Android.

TouchofModern-Thumb

Touch of Modern is like an exclusive club, only one that lets anyone in for free. Its only demands are that you register an account and, before now, browse its content within a web browser. Today even that last requirement is going out the window. With the release of a dedicated Android app, you can now whip out your phone and enter this club any time you wish.

FlickKey-Thumb

Using a virtual keyboard may not feel as natural as a physical one, but it's only the worst way to input text with a touchscreen except for all of the other ones. Swype has had the most success in revolutionizing how we enter text, as all of the major Android keyboards have since introduced gesture-based typing in subsequent upgrades, but it's far from perfect. That brings us to FlickKey Keyboard. It's a sliding keyboard that, by grouping letters into square groups of nine, aims to reduce how far across the screen our fingers need to slide.

If you've never heard of Stack Exchange, you're missing out on some of the best Q&A-style sites on the Internet. Each site is a community built to encourage people to ask and answer questions. Reputation and badges can be earned by giving good answers and comments. With over 120 communities (and growing), there are sites dedicated to programming, server management, gaming, travel, and even anime. The one thing that has been missing was a good mobile application.

Thingiverse-Thumb

Thingiverse is an awful name, but the community behind it shows far more creativity. Just a quick visit to the website reveals pages upon pages of nifty things people have spawned using 3D printers, complete with guidelines for replicating the objects yourself. Now MakerBot has condensed this community down into something that can fit in your pocket. With the new Thingiverse Android app, previously released for iOS back in October, users can browse, like, and comment on the expansive selection of plastic objects from anywhere they wish.

Sochi-Thumb

The 2014 Winter Olympics will take place next month in Sochi, Russia, and Samsung has just released an app into the Play Store for keeping up with all the hoopla. With bright colors and a clean interface, the Sochi 2014 WOW (Wireless Olympics Works) app might just be your best means of avoiding the excessive banter and lengthy commercials that come with trying to navigate the Olympics on television without a guide.

Talon-Thumb

Talon is the latest third-party Twitter client to fly into the Play Store, and while the competition may be fierce, there's always room for something new to claw its way in and do things a different way. This particular offering comes to us from Klinker Apps, the makers of Sliding Messaging, and prides itself on having superb KitKat integration. This means users fortunate enough to have Android 4.4 can enjoy a Twitter feed that rolls under translucent system bars, functionality that Google introduced in the latest version of the OS that has yet to make its way into many apps.

12Hours-Thumb

12Hours isn't the most complex, resource-intensive, mind-blowing app out there, and that's just because those characteristics would only hold it back. This analog clock widget doesn't just tell you the time - it goes a step further by displaying your scheduled events for the next twelve hours. This way, you can see how long you have until your next meeting (or how long until the miserable thing is over) without cluttering up your screen with lists of times and dates.
