Summer movie season is starting. With the Hunger Games already breaking box office records and nerds everywhere polishing their shields and repulsorlift glove replicas in anticipation of The Avengers, this year is set to be a big one. AMC has appropriately launched their official app to help you keep track of all the movies you're geeking out to see this year.

The app does a lot of the same things that more general movie apps like IMDb and Flixster already do well, like finding movie listings and trailers.

If you haven't tried out Evernote, you're missing out. It is, hands-down, one of the best note-taking applications for Android. It's not just on Android, though - it's cross platform and always in-sync. This means you always have your notes with you wherever you may be.

  • audio notes with speech-to-text transcriptions,
  • improvements to note lists and larger thumbnails,

If you're a fan of Seesmic, then you may have noticed an update hit the Store earlier today that brings a number of new features, including Instagram embedding, the ability to upload images directly to Twitter, and the arrival of ads. While the latter will surely make some users rage, there is actually a good reason for this: the Pro version hit the Store today, as well.

The Pro version not only gets rid of the ads (so you get the same familiar Seesmic that you're used to), but it also brings the ability to combine your Facebook and Twitter streams into one.

If you've ever dreamed of syncing your Android apps and games up with your PC and using them on a larger screen you'll be excited to hear that your dreams are becoming a very well-designed reality. Actually, if you've been following along with the development of BlueStacks then you know that this dream-to-reality transition has been in the works for several months now.

For those of you that don't know exactly what BlueStacks App Player is, it's exactly what the title implies - an app player that allows you to run Android applications on Windows (a Mac version is also in the works).

About a month and a half ago, we posted about a highly impressive voice control app named "Utter!". Siri competitors are a dime a dozen nowadays, but Utter! is a lot more HAL than Siri:

Want a add a calendar appointment? Tell Utter, and it'll take care of it. Get travel details, find out the weather, and launch applications - all child's play for Utter, and all done using native applications instead of just simple searches.

Android has had some powerful to-do lists dating all the way back to Cupcake, but few are quite as nice-looking as 2Do, a recent entry (although Astrid's new design might be a solid contender). The $7 to-do list (yes, you read that right) does it's best to make itself worth the money. Tabbed calendars, the ability to attach photos, starred tasks, and a selection of themes make it one of the nicer to-do lists we've used.

Despite what many people think, Google Docs is not the only online-based office suite. In fact, some may say that a few of the others - like Zoho Office, for example - are even more full-featured than GDocs.

If you've been thinking about leaving El Goog behind and jumping over to Zoho's house, but the lack of an Android app has been the deciding factor that kept you from making the leap, we have good news: ZOHO Docs is finally available on Android.
