Evernote, one of the most popular note apps for Android, got an update to version 3.2 recently, bringing integration with Skitch, offline search capability and a handful of other features that make it a huge step up from previous versions.
Skitch was recently acquired by Evernote, and brings a fun/useful doodle annotation functionality to the app, allowing the user to switch between apps editing the same note with the touch of an icon.
Dolphin HD, one of the top web browsers for Android, got updated to version 6.2 today, bringing more accurate gesture recognition and a slew of improvements for webzine viewing.

This is a great feature, allowing you to keep your Dolphin bookmarks consistent across all your Android devices easily.
In previous VZW Twitter contests, the @DroidLanding account would tweet out the coordinates of a hidden smartphone and participants would hurriedly scramble to the location lest someone claim the prize before them. With this latest scavenger hunt, however, VZW has upped the nerd factor and brought an augmented reality-based Android game into the mix:

Geodog GmbH are the developers of Geodog Mobile, a new application for Android that helps the user track their lost dog via GPS by connecting with a separately-sold tracking collar.

If you own a Honeycomb tablet, then you probably know that a true fullscreen option doesn't exist.

Upon install, HoneyBar will launch itself and constantly run in the middle of the navbar, which is usually blank space.
Remember back in May of last year when we reported on the AR.Drone at Google I/O? The Drone is no doubt an impressive gadget, and even more impressive is the fact that it can be controlled via an app for your Android handset.
The makers of the AR.Drone have finally released the Drone's controller app to the market (for free), simultaneously with a special SDK allowing users to "create new applications dedicated to the AR.Drone on the Android platform."
The app connects to the quadricopter via Wi-Fi and allows complete control of the peripheral right from the screen of your device.
Shopping lists. If you're in charge of food for a house with a lot of people, or just like to cook, they are a necessary evil.
