Ready to hear some oh-so shocking news? Okay, here it comes - Facebook is the most launched app on Android. Well, if you want to get technical about it, Facebook isn't really the most launched app - it actually shows up in the list right behind the Android Market, but considering the Market is the gateway to all other apps (including Facebook, in most cases), it's pretty safe to omit it.
It's an early Monday morning, and while Google doesn't update the 10 Billion Apps promo page until 8-9am Pacific, some resourceful folks have already found all of the apps for today. The collection keeps going down in overall selection quality with each day, and we have a few repeats yet again, but we shouldn't look an [almost] gifted horse in the mouth.
Here are today's apps and games:
Microsoft recently released Halo Waypoint to the Android Market, bringing an official multiplayer companion to the palm of your hand. The app has a surprising amount of awesome features, including live overhead views of multiplayer maps (with weapon, vehicle, and player locations), score information, and the ability to "stay in contact with your Halo friends on Xbox LIVE no matter where you are."
On top of all that, Halo Waypoint tracks your career and campaign progress and stats according to weapons and enemies, and enables users to invite friends to challenges from their mobile device.

We'll be sure to update with today's 10th app as soon as we find out what it is.
It's a new day, and with it comes 10 new $0.10 apps on the Android Market. The Market promo page likely won't be updated for another few hours, but once again some internet sleuths on reddit have found today's sale apps in the wee hours of the morning:
- The Sims 3
- SlideIT Keyboard
- Snowfall Live Wallpaper
- Asphalt 6
- Season Zen HD
- Drop 7
- Age of Zombies
- Kids Connect the Dots

While the Google Voice app has always been free, there was speculation that voice calls to the United States and Canada would begin to cost you money at the beginning of next year. However, new Google Voice users are being greeted by a pop-up window when they first use the Call Phone feature in Gmail that indicates otherwise.
See there? Calls to the U.S. and Canada are free in 2012. If there is anything I love more than free voice calling, it's another year of entirely free calling through Google Voice.
YouMail, a popular (and free) visual voice mail solution, mysteriously disappeared from the Android Market today.
In case you haven't heard, Google has been offering 10 apps a day for just $0.10 each as part of a 10 day promotion to celebrate the 10 billionth download from the Android Market. For end users, this promotion has been fantastic, as it offers quality paid apps for next to nothing. In fact, the promotion has also been great for the developers behind the promoted apps, who have seen hugely increased exposure, skyrocketing purchases, and higher spots in the "Top Paid" list.
We all know that dreaded feeling that comes over us when we accidentally delete an important file. However, if you haven't recently made a backup (shame on you!) there's no reason to panic if this happens. Hexamob, maker of Hexamob Recovery Pro, is here to lend you a helping hand with raising files from the dead.
This app is an incredibly powerful tool to have on hand.
By now, you're probably familiar with the rigmarole: in celebration of passing 10 billion app downloads, 10 apps per day for 10 days are on sale for 10 cents on the Android Market. We're on day four of the sale, and while the official Market page has yet to be updated, redditors have once again pitched in to figure out today's 10 apps:
