iSyncr is another solution for syncing your Android device with your iTunes account. This app comes in both PC and MAC compatible versions. For a small fee of $2.99 you can purchase either of these and turn your Android device into an iPod (but better). There is also a lite version of both apps but they are limited to only one playlist amount other restrictions. And if you want to take it a step further, there is an iSync Widget that allows you to rate songs right for your phone.

This is without a doubt one of the coolest apps of any kind on any platform. The latest update just made it even better. There is now a picture gallery with photos taken from the Hubble Space Telescope. This app now has "Magnetic Correction" to fix the angles of the stars to more accurately depict how it would look if you were looking directly at them. I highly recommend this app for any Android user.
This is arguably the best podcast app for Android. It has the ability to display video as well as traditional audio podcasts. New podcasts are being added all the time and you can save them to your SD card. Most of the popular podcasts are already available in this app. This app is still in beta but you wouldn’t be able to tell from the quality of it. It’s a free app available in the Android Market.
Seemingly out of nowhere Vonage has just entered the Android game. Usually when a company as big as Vonage has plans of introducing a new app there is some sort of press release or even beta testing before hand. Not Vonage, today they released and Android app that is only available for T-Mobile and AT&T Android based handsets.
For all you people that love to be organized, this is a great app for you. This app will log every call you get or you can select a particular number to log. It’s a very lightweight app and when you open it, all there’s only a few options to choose from. So if you like bells and whistles, this may not be for you. But if you’re like me and want to get right to the point, then you’re going to love this. It’s a free app but it’s only available to Android 2.0.1 and up devices.
Today, Rhapsody has removed this app out of beta. This app brings with it the ability to stream over 9.5 millions songs to your Android device.

The developers at Swiss CodeMonkeys bring to us a new app called ‘Obama for Android’. Although he did admit that he likes Blackberries, I’m sure he has an Android device stashed somewhere on his person. Now you can follow all the news from our President.

Raging Thunder 2 may have been knocked off as the best 3D racing game for Android with the introduction of Asphalt 5 by Gameloft. The graphics of this game are some of the best that I have seen on Android. A few disadvantages of this game are, there is no multi player option and it costs over a dollar more than Raging Thunder 2 and it works best on second generation hardware. Some people say that this game doesn’t play well on the Nexus but it plays just fine on mines.
