Most Used Android Apps in January 2010

Here is a list of my most used Android apps in January 2010:

  • Seesmic for updating @teamksar and my fundraising campaign for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Great search functionality and UI is very clean and consise.
  • TV.com for watching the latest NCIS show. Works primarily on WiFi connection so I use it at home while I’m doing the dishes or relaxing outside.
  • Droidlight – created by Motorola and I use it to navigate in my room in the dark especially when I don’t want to wake up my wife if I need to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night or I’m working late
  • Foursquare – ok, I’m an addict and every place I go I login. Plus, it is interesting to see where my contacts are going to. I warn you if you download it you’ll get addicted. Your wife will be asking  you, “are you playing foursquare again?”
  • and finally Google Listen to catch-up on all the CES-related and NPR podcasts.

That’s the top used apps for January 2010. I wonder what February will be.  What Android apps did you use most frequently in January?

Interview with Brett Butterfield, CEO of Pixelpipe

I interviewed Brett Butterfield from Pixelpipe on the MOTODEV Android Podcast. Really interesting conversation on their media sharing gateway, their Android App, the Android SDK 1.5 (aka Cupcake), and listener questions. Listen to the podcast on BlogTalkRadio and let me know what you think.

My Top Free Android Apps on the Android Market

Droid

Been downloading apps via the Android Market and here are my top 5 so far:

  • The Weather Channel – I have Cupertino, Pebble Beach (my wedding location), Albany (Oregon), and Papeete (my honeymoon location).  Really easy to a city and brings in the most recent weather data as well forecast for the next 36 hours or 10 days. One thing I wish it had was photos from that location – why not pull the most recent Flickr photos with that location?
  • Last.fm: Stream your favorite music over the 3G network.  setup is simple and all done via the phone. Up and running within a f ew minutes.
  • Wine-by-the-bar: Scan my bottles at home and at the restaurants so I can keep track of what I’ve been drinking and my notes/rating
  • Meebo: great web-based IM chat client now on mobile. Login in to multiple chat clients including Yahoo! Messenger, AIM, Gtalk, ICQ, Jabber, MSN, MySpace, and Meebo itself.
  • myAccount by T-Mobile:  I can see my current activity, bill summary, and pay directly from my phone – awesome! Now only if the iPhone had this at release then you wouldn’t have seen those 1000 page bills from AT&T.

What is Android?

One of the best resources on the web I’ve been using recently has been slideshare.net. Everyone is uploading their presentation there from a conference or user group meeting and it turns it into a flash presentation that you can embed into your site (even wordpress.com blogs). Here is one I found titled “What is Android” by Erik Fields from Think Interactive and how it compares to the iPhone SDK in terms of developer platforms and user experience.

P.S. My co-worker and I are hosting an Android developer panel this Friday at 2pm PST / 4pm CST on designing, developing, and distributing your Android app. Tune it live to http://blogtalkradio.com/motodev. Questions will be taken online at http://tinyurl.com/motodev, via twitter @motodev and by calling in during the show at (347) 826-9350. Hope to you can tune in.
