Ahh, the Android Market. The best place to get games, finance, shopping, and loads more applications for your Google Android powered cellular device. In the last two years the Android team has worked hard to produce a true iPhone killer. And now that the Android Market has roughly as many app submissions per month as Apple’s App Store, it looks like that might become a reality.
Of course, there is always room for improvement in the Market’s offerings. So with that in mind I came up with the Top Five Android Applications of the Future!
5) Life Support
With all the apps I run on my Android, it seems like I have to keep my phone plugged in practically all the time so it doesn’t die. Life Support is the answer to your phone charging troubles. Whenever your phone senses that it is about to die, tiny little legs pop out of the side and, using GPS and Google Maps, the phone skitters to the nearest power source. Before you even know it was gone it’s back in your pocket and fully charged!
4) Chatterbox AI
How annoying is it when you have to have the same boring conversation with someone again and again. With Chatterbox, voice recognition software captures your voice, and then uses those recordings to have the conversation for you, emailing any salient points to you after the call. Never waste time talking weather or traffic or your family again! There’s even a setting to handle sales calls to tie up phone solicitors for hours!
3) Phone Phight
Tired of your friends asking how many gigabytes of memory or pixels of camera power your phone has? If you’re ambivalent to phone specs, just hand your Android over to the person asking the questions. Worried about phone envy? Phone Phight is designed to recognize all phones in a twenty foot radius and spit out all of the reasons your Android is better than those around you (or make some up)!
Economy got you down? Car trouble? Children acting up again? Well, Fixit! is the app for you! Simply point your Android device at whatever ails you and push the red Fixit! button. See the economy turn around before you can say “change we can believe in”, flat tires magically heal themselves, and children turn into little angels before your eyes!
1) Back to Reality
It’s terrible that, in the few hours we get to spend with friends and family during the week, so many of them are spent looking down at our phones. Back to Reality emits a high pitched noise that temporarily allows people to forget their phones, Internet connections, and Facebook accounts. For thirty minutes after you activate the patented Back to Reality application, everyone in range parties like it’s 1999. No looking up silly trivia, no texting while talking, just plain old fashioned person-to-person conversation. A real blast from the past!
