The Android Community Team: our must have apps

We’ve all got them, those apps you just can’t do without. Buy a new phone, and there are some you just have to make sure you have on your device. Day to day, there are those apps you rely on much more than others. Like you, we’ve got ours. While we're clearly information junkies, there are some things that distract us from the day-to-day grind of absorbing as much info as possible.

Play Store to feature tablet optimized apps starting November 21st

Google has been trying to get app developers focused on Android tablets for some time. By asking them time and again to design their apps to look good on tablets as well as phones, Google is trying to get them to understand the importance of the platform. Starting on November 21st, they’re getting a bit heavy-handed about it.

Google Play app revenue grows 17.9% while iOS shrinks

A new report from App Annie has come out, and with it, some interesting insights into the app market. The most interesting piece of information to come from the report is that while Apple may generate four times the revenue of Google Play, Play is growing at a much higher rate. In the last month, Apple's revenue has actually shrunk .7%, while Google Play has risen an astonishing 17.9% in the same period.

SellAring in-call advertising has users seeing red

Advertising is an unfortunately necessary part of life - and I say that as a guy whose livelihood depends upon it. But there's a fine line between an acceptable level of distraction and an infuriating invasion of a user's space. Case in point: sellAring. Instead of placing banner ads in free apps or even embedding them in the user's status bar, sellAring places audio ads (remember those, radio listeners?) over the "ring ring" sound you hear when calling another party.

Real Colors generates palettes from your photos

If you're a graphic designer or a web developer, you know the importance of having a harmonious color scheme on your next project. There are plenty of programs, services and web apps that will generate an eye-pleasing palette for you, but they're almost all drawing from pre-created sets of colors. Real Colors Pro is an Android app that's well worth the consideration for any creative professional, not just because it moves this functionality to a stand-alone mobile app, but because it adds a few new bells and whistles as well.
