10 Great Apps For Your Droid Phone

PC World wrote up a great article summarizing 10 must have apps for new Motorola Droid. Here’s a list of the 10 apps:

1. Twidroid


Twidroid is available in a free and pro (paid) version. Twidroid offers almost every Twitter function you might need, from the basic — viewing and sending tweets, following and unfollowing users, viewing profiles to the advanced: saved searches, URL shortening, photo posting, and geo-location support.

2. Meebo for Android


Meebo connects you to all of your IM clients including: AIM, MSN, Yahoo, MySpace IM, Google Talk, Jabber and ICQ. Not to mention your meebo account will save the logs of all of your accounts which are accessible online.

3. Pandora on Android


Pandora’s Android App is available free in the Android Market. Pandora Radio is your own FREE personalized radio now available to stream music on your Android phone. Just start with the name of one of your favorite artists, songs or classical composers and Pandora will create a “station” that plays their music and more music like it. With Android’s multitasking abilities you can listen to Pandora while running other apps, something the iPhone can’t handle.

4. Google Voice for Mobile

Google Voice

The Google Voice app integrates all of the Google Voice functionality into your Android phone. This allows you to make outgoing calls from your Google Voice number, right from your contacts list. You also gain easy access to voicemail and Google Voice-based SMS messaging.

5. Locale


Locale lets you customize your phone’s settings based on your location. You could program the app to set your phone to vibrate every time you’re at your office, or set it to go silent when you enter the perimeter of your local movie theater. You can get advanced and make exceptions for VIP callers, too.

6. ActionComplete


ActionComplete is a very sophisticated To-Do list. It allows you to organize your tasks and appointments, using a system developed by “GTD” (Getting Things Done”) guru David Allen.

You can even set reminders that’ll pop up based on where you are, allowing you to remind yourself of certain tasks at the office, others at the home, and so on.

ActionComplete is free.

7. Google Sky Map

8. KeyRing

Key Ring

With Key Ring you can create a digital copy of any club card by simply scanning its barcode or by manually entering the barcode number / membership ID. At the point of sale, simply launch the Key Ring application, select your saved card from the home screen and have the retail associate scan the barcode from the screen.  Yes, you can scan a barcode from your screen.

9. Compare Everywhere

Compare Everywhere

CompareEverywhere helps you shop smarter using your phone. Scan a barcode to instantly check if that “sale price” really is a good deal. Read reviews to find out if those hiking boots will last a lifetime, or fall apart next month. Keep track of shopping lists, wish lists, and more.

10. Sherpa


Sherpa discovers information about where you are and what you’re looking for. The app automatically learns your likes and dislikes, displaying surrounding restaurants, retailers and attractions that reflect your taste.

    For those who want compare everywhere, an option that IS available for the Droid is ShopSavvy.

  5. [...] The most popular twitter client for Android has to be Twidroid and it just got even better! Twidroid V3.0 was just released with a couple new fetaures, the most important being threaded conversations. Twidroid was mentioned in the 10 Great Apps for your Droid Phone. [...]

  6. Vikas Shah says:

    QwikList Voice is a great app for making notes or sending SMS. Wow factor as it shows off the voice recognition of the Droid and the widgets (neither of which iPhone users have).

    Is there any sort of flash player for droid?
