Sometimes it can be really difficult to find useful apps on the Android Market due to all of the spam, so we have compiled a short-list of 5 useful Android applications.
#1: Aquarium Pocket Guide (APG)
If you're a hobby or professional fish keeper, APG will be a perfect addition to your Android app installs. When you're out and about and spot a fish you would like to purchase, in cases where you know nothing about the particular species, you will go online and do a google search for the species, but 9 times out of 10, internet access is unavailable.
APG does not need internet access; you can do a quick search for the species or common name and find the information you need. It comes packed with over 600 species of freshwater, brackish, saltwater fish, plants and invertebrates.
Shazam can recognize music and media that is playing around you. Simply tap the Shazam button to search and match.
#3: AppBrain Ad Detector
One of the most annoying things when installing an Android app is finding that it has installed ads on your phone or tablet. AppBrain Ad Detector will scan your installed apps and provide you with a list of apps that are spamming your device with the option to directly uninstall them.
Many of us use our devices at night when it is already very dark, this can be a problem for your eyesight and also make it difficult to fall asleep after you switch off.
Look no further, Twilight has you covered by filtering the blue light from your screen and dimming the brightness further than what is made possible with the standard Android brightness settings.
#5: Barcode Scanner
A very simple app, but very useful, just aim your camera over a barcode and let the app do it's work, it will detect the barcode and automatically search a database to try find what the product is, with a link to the product page.
