We have selected the following Android Apps because they arguably put out the highest ‘wow factor’, through their ingenious utilization of the diverse pieces of hardware available in a standard Android device – such as the gyroscope, Gps, camera,  and Internet access.

1: Google Earth

One of the most thrilling experiences for newcomers into the Android world happens when they first load up Google Earth. While the same experience is indeed fascinating on a regular computer, using this software on a portable device such as a smartphone or tablet is nothing short of astounding!

Courtesy of the device’s GPS chip, you can jump from the view of the green/blue orb we call Earth to your present whereabouts, with the click of a button. While looking down into the screen, you cannot help but to think “so this is what Superman would have felt like, plummeting down to the surface”. My favorite and one of the best Android Apps.


2: Accuweather

If you want to stay on top of metereologic developments in your area of residence, this app will do the trick. Not only does it draw data from one of the most reputable and accurate sources in the world, but it presents all the information you could hope for in a stylish and intuitive interface.

You can easily check on the day’s hourly forecast, as well as peek into what the weather will be like in the next couple of weeks – complete with local temperature, humidity and a plethora of useful details. Never again will you be surprised by rain during a picnic!

This is one of those apps that isn’t exactly useful… but boy, does it add a magic touch to your Android devices. Simply put, it makes the background on your Android device look just like the overview of a realistic looking aquarium, which you get to populate with several fishes of your choice.

You also get to feed them by tapping on the screen with multiple fingers, and they will even grow  over time! Also, the water effect on this app is so visually impressive that you will often get the impression that your fingers are actually wet.


4: TeamViewer

Would you like to be able to actually control your computer remotely as if you were standing there, irrespective of whether you’re across the room or across the world?
