    I have installed many of these and removed a large portion of them because you cannot install them to your SD card or they are constantly wanting to run in the background. I wish some of these like Facebook and Twitter would set it up so you could install on an SD card to save room on your phone and give options to disable background processes when you don’t want them running on your phone. Great list by the way, there are tons of useful apps out there for Android.

    Superb list. Thanks for share.

    These apps looks great. Although I do own an Android phone some of the apps listed above have a version of iOS and I love them from the experience on my iOS device. If you have an android powered phone I highly recommend trying them, nothing is listed on SloDive that is a crap.
