While the Amazon Appstore may have its downfalls, it also has its upsides -- namely good deals and free apps. Thus is the case with its new promotion called "Geek Week," in which some very useful apps designed for hardcore Android enthusiasts have received a nice price drop.

As for the apps in question, you'll find some well-known tools and utilities in the mix:

  • Easy Tether for $4.99 (normally $9.99)
  • Root Explorer for $0.99 (normally $3.99)
  • WidgetLocker for $0.99 (normally $1.99)
  • Wave Launcher for $0.99 (normally $1.99)
  • SetCPU for $0.99 (normally $2)
  • RepliGo Reader for $1.99 (normally $4.99)
  • Xtralogic Remote Desktop Client for $12.99 (normally $24.95)
  • BackupEverything for $0.99 (normally $1.99)

Among those, I highly recommend Root Explorer and SetCPU (for overclocked devices), but the majority of those apps are definitely worth the sale price.

I have absolutely no problem admitting that I'm not a football fan. What I do have a problem with, however, is when an amazing app like DirecTV's NFL Sunday Ticket for Tablets hit the Market and I have no use for it. For the football fans among us, though, this is pure gold.

NFL Sunday Ticket for Tablets lets you monitor every Sunday game all in one place, as well as stream whichever one you like in a smaller window, making dreams come true for the football-multitasking-maniac (like my Dad, for example).

While there have been plenty of Netflix builds available for download to be sideloaded onto "unsupported" devices, many users have been waiting for an official update to be pushed out by Netflix.

That day has come, as the app received an today today that brings support to all Android 2.2 and 2.3 devices. Oddly enough, though, the app also updated on my Galaxy Tab 10.1 which I had previously sideloaded it onto.

I'm a huge fan of 2 community news sites - Reddit and the more technical/nerdy Hacker News by YCombinator. The former has a few tablet apps but Android users haven't had as much luck with Hacker News apps for tablets. The website, while fast and looking just fine in the browser, is far from optimal for those using a touch interface with its tiny links to discussions and buttons.

Enter the new HackNewsBot app by Jason Ostrander, designed specifically for Honeycomb tablets.

We've covered a few different football-related apps lately, and for the football fanatics among you, the NFL released an official app specifically designed for Honeycomb tablets into the Market just a little while ago.

The app allows you to watch on-demand NFL network news and other info, check out the latest on your favorite teams, keep up with game action, stats, and drive charts; and check out team rosters, stats, and player info, all while looking mighty good doing it.

hidden lock

Android's default lockscreen choices (PIN input and the familiar 3x3 pattern), while secure, are not the easiest or simplest to get through, even if you know the code. For those of you looking for a nice, clean alternative, Hidden Lock may suit your needs perfectly.

Upon launch, the app allows you to place your lock anywhere on the screen, and even change the size to be more secure. Once the lock is placed, you can test how it works.

The Guardian is one of the most popular daily newspapers printed in Britain and its web portal, Guardian.co.uk, is also a leading online newspaper, containing nearly all the articles of its parent as well as significant original content. Unlike other web portals of printed publications such as the New York Times and the Economist, all the articles on Guardian.co.uk are freely accessible. To continue ensuring it remains the leading publication in all formats, Guardian has launched an Android app delivering all the latest content from Guardian.co.uk to Android phones and tablets.

Remember our Out of Milk giveaway? Come on, it was like, a few days ago. If you don't, we gave away 25 copies of the Pro version of this absolutely fantastic shopping and pantry organization app to the comments here and on Google+ that we enjoyed the most. Here they are.

From "Klaus with a "K"" in the post comments:

“Honey? We're out of milk. – again!”

When milk is what you need
and shopping warnings were not heed
Then You, my friend, are out of luck
and in the doghouse surely stuck

You need to shop with care
and plan your trip with flair

Can’t decipher illegible doodles
will end you up buying noodles

Don’t bring home salami
knowing everyone eats pastrami

And when all that’s needed is a bit of oats
you better not come rolling home with goats

No listed item should be carelessly omitted
or for sure you will be deemed nit-witted.
