Another day, another app comes on the market. There’s too many to keep up with, but a few Android apps are going to steal the show in 2013 if they haven’t already.
1. Chrome Beta
Although the default Android browser has made great strides with the Ice Cream Sandwich and Jelly Bean updates, it doesn’t hold a candle to some of the other browsers available on the market. The beta version of Chrome, Google’s desktop browser, warns users that it may be a little rough around the edges, but it offers features such as tabbed browsing and Google Maps and YouTube integration. You can install it alongside the full version of Chrome, too.
DreamWorks and TechniColor have teamed up to create this device, which offers streaming video content similar to Netflix. The app is currently free from Google Play, and it uses a pay-as-you-go format.
You can watch titles such as “The Big Bang Theory” and the recent Sherlock Holmes movies. M-Go is new, but it will be interesting to see how it compares to the competition.
3. Facebook Pages Manager
If you run more than one page on Facebook, the Android app might feel a little clumsy. However, the focus of the Facebook Pages Manager app is more focused, making viewing and responding to comments or posting new content to your pages a little easier.
This free app was previously available on the iPhone and iPad, so the developers know what they’re doing. It’s also the most convenient way to manage pages without appearing online to everyone on your friends list with the actual Facebook app.
File-sharing website MediaFire is one of the most popular on the Internet, especially since governments have taken down giants like MegaUpload. With the Android app, which was updated a month ago, uploading and managing files has never been easier.
The app appears to focus on photos — you can conveniently take photos directly from the app — but documents, audio and video are also supported.
The final app on this list is one that many people won’t have an app for, but adding instant communication to Facebook in walkie-talkie style will certainly benefit people in certain industries.
As long as you have a Wi-Fi connection, you can save on your phone bill, too, and who doesn’t like that? GroupVox is even handier because you can instantly communicate with an entire group of people simultaneously. No other app does this.
