Author Aaron Halbert has taken the time to find the best Android apps out there, so you don't have to try sorting through tons of customer reviews. Each app includes a brief description that highlights what makes it so great, as well as how much the app costs (if anything). I discovered some apps I'd never heard of before, and now wouldn't want to leave home without them!
Everybody with a smartphone wants to know what others have on their phones. This little book provides some good apps to consider in several categories. After having a phone for a while, these might be alternates to what is not working, or areas for new apps to add functionality. Its a simple read with links to some useful info.For advanced users, it would be tough to recommend this book. For new smart phone users, or those who haven't pressed their unit's capability, it is a good place to get some new ideas.
Aaron does a good job of wading through thousands of apps and this is a pretty good list. There is a little something for everyone but that tends to water down the selection. There really are people who don't use android devices just to stream video, play music or kill time with games. I know it is shocking to hear, but it is true. It is well worth the price for relatively new android users; it won't be a lot of help to long time users. I'll be looking for the next update.
Lots of great info, tips and tricks i didn't know. Not being tied to Apple Only is a real plus to me. Android Rocks!! Lots of great Apps in the book. I have a few of Aaron's books. He really lays it out in a clear and concise manner, easy for non-geek types like me to understand, and implement. I have it in my Kindle library for quick and easy reference. You'll like it, too.
It's OK if you want a second opinion about Android apps. The problem with it is that apps are being revised and new apps are being designed all the time, so wait a few months and it may be out of date.
Checked this out and the recs are excellent. Don't think I'll be using all 50 (I don't really tweet or feel the need to screenshare with my home comp) but there's a great bundle of stuff here that are definitely going to become my staples.I actually have a Note, so I also checked out the Samsung Galaxy Note 3: The 100% Unofficial User Guide which was also really helpful. Technically, this book comes free with that, so maybe the author will give me a refund.....
I absolutely LOVE it. It has saved me so much time in finding GREAT apps. I have only had it a short time but wonder how I ever got along without it. Can't wait to see his next great book. If you haven't checked the other ones out you SHOULD! You don't know what you are missing.
A solid collection for those coming to Android for the first time, or for those switching from another OS. Nice balance of social, gaming, productivity, security, and utility apps listed in here. Already have this author's books and they've made the transition to Android very easy! Highly recommend!
