Welcome to the weekly roundup of the best new Android applications, games, and live wallpapers that went live in the Market or were spotted by us in the previous week or so.
This edition focuses only on new tablet apps or ones that added tablet support. Regular apps and games are coming soon.
Wow. I had no idea what ZeroPC was until I found this tablet app, and boy - it's like discovering a whole new OS that not only lives in the cloud but talks to, searches, and integrates with other cloud services - Dropbox, Google Docs, Evernote, Sugarsync, Instagram, etc.
It's free to use unless you want to get more storage or use advanced features, and if you think I was kidding when I called it an OS, take a look at what happens when you log in. Yup, this is what you see in your browser:
Mind blown yet? The tablet app allows you to see your cloud accounts, instantly search them, view and download files, and perform all kinds of cloud management all from one place (copying files between cloud services isn't supported yet in the tablet app - you'll have to use the web interface for that).
Check out the differences between the free and pay-as-you-go account:
Connect, search and access your content in Dropbox, Google Docs, Facebook, Picasa, Flickr, Evernote, Box.net, Instagram and SugaSync. Search & discover yours and your friends' content with ZeroPC’s powerful Universal Search engine built-in to the tablet app.
ZeroPC Cloud Navigator gives you a unified, easy and secure way to access to all of your cloud content regardless which services you use.
With ZeroPC Cloud Navigator’s instant search and smart browsing feature, it’s easy to find, manage, access and share all of your content on the go with a single ZeroPC login, right from your Android tablet.
If you are new to the cloud or only use a few cloud service providers, ZeroPC Cloud Navigator helps you easily explore other popular services to expand your cloud presence.
We are already working on the next version release which will include some exciting features such as local caching for instant content access, file uploading and quick sharing capabilities.
- Connect all your cloud content with ZeroPC Cloud Navigator
- Instantly and securely connect to popular services—Box.net, Dropbox, Evernote, Facebook, Flickr, Google Docs, Instagram, Picasa or SugarSync—using a single sign-on and industry-standard Oauth (no password is stored in ZeroPC).
- View and access documents and notes, play music, watch videos, browse photos and more all on your Android tablet.
- Easy and smart content browsing
- Quickly navigate though intuitive content hierarchy to access any document, photo, multimedia or social content regardless of where they are stored in one convenient place.
- Browse through your content by category tabs (Docs, Photos, Video, Music or ALL) and display only what you want with large thumbnails.
- Powerful Universal Search
- Easily search your content on the go! Find and access everything using keyword or name search, content categories, or sub-folders.
- Security and Privacy
- ZeroPC Cloud Navigator is safe to use. ZeroPC is compliant with all of the built-in security of the host 3rd party services such as Dropbox and Box.net. We use an industry standard and widely adopted encrypted token-based security technique called “Oauth”. All communication uses the same high level of encryption as banks and other financial institutions.
- Official Android OS version support
- Honeycomb (Android 3.0, 3.1 and 3.2)
- Ice Cream (Android 4.0)
- Your FREE personal lifetime cloud desktop
- When you sign up using the ZeroPC Cloud Navigator you also get a Free ZeroPC Web Virtual Desktop, turning your browser into a fully functional cloud desktop. You can quickly and easily navigate and launch built-in and favorite apps, run multiple apps, and access all your personal cloud content all within the same browser window. You can easily and securely create, access and share combinations of digital content - multiple folder, files - with anyone using a single URL. ZeroPC gives you 1GB of free cloud storage, plus integrated access up to an additional free 14 GB from popular cloud storage services. This is a total of up to 15GB of free combined storage!
- To access your Free ZeroPC Web Virtual Desktop account, just use the same login credential to sign in by going to www.zeropc.com. All you need is a browser!
Cocktail Flow Tablet
An absolutely gorgeous cocktail app, currently rated #2 on the Windows Phone Marketplaces, is now on Android. I've seen plenty of cocktail/alcohol/mixing apps on our favorite platform, but nothing ever came even close to Cocktail Flow. Have a look yourself.
Browse, find and discover cocktails with a continuously growing collection of drinks. The application features beautifully presented recipes and identifies cocktails that can be made from ingredients in your bar.
Photoon HD - Make your story
Photoon lets you create cool comic-style picture mashups. Just slice and dice however you want, throw in your pictures, zoom and rotate them, and you get something that looks totally bad-ass. Check it out:
