You can get an app for just about everything these days, even for the things you never thought you needed, such as star gazing apps, or to the very useful, such as apps to help you locate your phone when you’ve misplaced it!
And it’s likely that new smartphones or tablets will be among the most popular presents this festive season and the simple fact is that a tablet or smartphone are only made better by the apps you have on it.
So we asked our Facebook community to tell us what their favourite apps are for their Android phones and tablets. So if you are the lucky recipient, you at least have a place to start for highly recommended apps.
Let us know what you think? It’s not an exhaustive list and I am sure there are some apps missed off, so let us know what you think and suggest your favorites as well.
Of course, if you want to stay safe then download AVG Mobilation from the Android marketplace to keep your phone and tablet safe and virus free.
