Android Apps worth a look!

I wanted to share some of my favorite Android applications that have made it to my smartphones homescreen. I’ll try to make this a regular feature and highlight apps you might not have noticed that are worth a look:
Spare Phone: Spare Phone formerly gVoice is a $1.99 Android VoIP app developed by guidology that allows you to use your data connection (WiFi, 3G, 4G,EVDO) to place voice calls using a Google Voice Account. gVoice essentially turns your phone or tablet into a free wireless phone when using the application over WiFi.
Plume: Plume formerly Touiteur is highly customizable Twitter client that has many desirable features including the ability to colorize your timeline, pull to refresh your timeline, handle multiple twitter accounts, picture preview, autocomplete Twitter hashtags, the ability to mute select users and much more it is my current Twitter client of choice. There is a free ad-supported version of Plume as well as a premium ad-free version of Plume available for $4.99.
IMDB: Search the world’s largest collection of over 2 million movie and TV titles, Over 4 million celebrities, actors, actresses, directors and other crew members. Rate movies and TV shows and you can sign in with your IMDb account or your Facebook account. Beautiful interface, a definitive download for movie fans. IMDB is a free download from the Google Play Store.
Slice: Shopping Organized: Slice is an online purchasing organizer and tracker. If you are a Gmail or Yahoo Mail user you can organize then track your online purchases automatically. Slice helps you keep track of spending, search past purchases to recall key details and identify deductible expenses, facilitate returns and exchanges, find style & model numbers and other item details as well as view customer service phone numbers and policies. Slice is a free download from the Google Play Store.
PocketCasts: Currently my favorite Podcatcher, PocketCasts is extremely easy to set-up, the user interface makes the application a pleasure to use. This app has every feature I was looking for, some of my favorites include the ability to set where I would like the downloads to be saved, phone or SD storage. The ability to limit downloads by user selected criteria, for example when on WiFi , when plugged in, either or both. Simply too many options to list here. $2.99 worth every penny!
