Android Market apps for the Tablet.

Oh    my    gosh ! ! !

 

2010 ended with over 200, 000 Android apps, some of which do not run on Tablets, yet!  There are so many opinions, this is just a hodgepodge hope you find those you like list. Please note I put together these

Dropbox
Similar to the PC version, Dropbox for Android lets you access, upload and share all kinds of files and documents from your Android.

Swype
While the Android 2.3 Gingerbread update brings a much needed new keyboard, for the rest of us Swype may be the answer. Instead of having to tap out each letter, Swype lets you slide across them to make words. And every time you lift your finger a new word starts. It’s faster to say the least.

AppBrain App Market
While the Android Market does exist, it isn’t quite as good at finding and suggesting apps like the AppBrain App Market. Its best feature would be the carefully picked recommended apps. The AppBrain App Market scans your Android device to study what kinds of apps you download and frequently use. It then recommends new apps based on this information every time you log in.

Gentle Alarm
We just had to throw this in because everyone we know who owns an Android phone uses its alarm capabilities, however the preloaded clock app leaves much to be desired. With the Gentle Alarm app, it gradually fades the alarm in, instead of going off abruptly. It also has a clever little CAPTCHA feature which will force you to wake up and fill in the field in order to shut it off, very useful for those mornings when you just can’t be late.

Lookout Mobile Security
By far the best app to protect your Android from viruses, malware and similar attacks. Lookout Mobile Security is a pioneer when it comes to Android protection and they were also the first to discover the Android trojan dubbed Geinimi which is the first malware for Android that displays botnet-like capabilities. Get it and stay safe, it’s free after all.

 

NOTE: There are Google Market alternatives do not have the wide selection of the applications that the full market has, but some even have far superior category and enhanced search features to find quality apps.

Here is  a short list of the best Google Android Market Alternative and offered advice on application ‘must haves’ if you have particular tablets or e-readers.

Slide Me

Slide me is one of the well structured and best put together alternative to the Google Android Market. They have a free APK that you can download to your tablet, or phone that will allow you to browse and straight up install applications.

Androidpit

Boasts around 1700 applications right now,  has a intuitive application you can download does not have many e-reading applications but you can easily get your hands on Tweetdeck, eBuddy and other popular Android Applications.

They also report on news and have a bustling forum.

Andappstore

andappstore has been around since 2009 and has a growing library of application numbering in the thousands. Their application has most common games and applications including Angry Birds. Its searching feature too is a bit robust, but it does not have many e-reading applications, except for Aldiko.

This Alternative to the Android market pays developers 100% of royalties so it is a viable way for people to make money, they have a number of games and excel in their application department. They have Documents to Go and many other essential applications.

Appslib

Appslib is Archos answer to the Google Marketplace for Android applications, they only support Archos Tablets, so everyone else you are out of luck. You can download the application direct to your PC .

This is actually a great marketplace with the intention of all of the applications are viable for tablets, since that is the companies speciality. It has over 2000 free applications and paid ones as well.

They have all of the essential games and applications, such as Facebook, Twitter, eBuddy and Angrybirds! It sure is not no Google Android Market with over 200,000 applications, but most of these applications run fine on the Archos.

Applications

If you have a tablet with the intention of using it as an e-reader, here are a few must have applications you want to download to your computer and then to your tablet. Remember some tablets need you to copy the files to your SD Card, if your tablet allows you to copy it directly to the tablet itself, all the better. Once you copy an application in APK format to your SD card or tablet, you want to use the application ES File Explorer or whatever File Manager application came with your Tablet Computer that allows you to browse and execute content. Click on the title of the app to download the APK to your PC.
