40 apps, one buck: AppZilla offers a ton of productivity on the cheap

And you thought Google's 10 Billion Apps promotion was a steal. Popular iPhone productivity suite AppZilla is now available from the Android Market, ready to give you an extra couple of populated pages in your app drawer of a single, solitary greenback. The collection of basic apps has been lauded on iOS for its utility and value, and now Android users can get the same budget-concious collection for themselves.

The complete list of included utilities is as follows: 50,000 Famous Quotes Reference, Police Scanner, Area Code Lookup, Auto Camera, Game Buzzer, Battery Life Monitor, Big Button, Checklist, Crystal Ball, Surface Level, Sleep Sounds Generator, Coin Flip, Journal, Currency Converter, Dictionary, Group Email, Group SMS, Random Facts, Holiday Reference, LED Flashlight, Bubble Level, Concert Lighter, Horoscope, Random Jokes, GPS Locator, Moon Phase Calculator, Password Generator, Plumb Bob, Price Calculator, Reverse Dictionary, Random Number Generator, Rhymes Dictionary, Sale Price Calculator, Spell Check, System Info, Thesaurus, Tic Tac Toe, Language Translator and Unit Converter. Sure, most of these you can find for free on the Android Market (and some are even built into custom ROMs) but getting them all in one place and at one time is surely worth the dollar asking price.

All this, and developer Fossil Software says in the Market description that they're planning on adding more apps in the future. Considering that the mini-apps in AppZilla are already pretty solid, not to mention much prettier than the typical Android fare, it's a value proposition that's hard to argue with. Oh, and just in case you were worried: AppZilla launches as its own contained virtual folder of apps on Android, so you won't have to scroll through 40 new entries in the launcher of your choice.

    I have to admit, the software looks sharp, and having 40 apps in one sounds impressive, but I’d be pressed to recall the last time I had a spontaneous need for a random number or random fact.  IMO 3, maybe 5, of the apps might be considered useful.
