2012 is fast approaching and Android is making waves in the industry. Even amidst reports that Android lost ground in November, there really isn’t any place for it to go…but up! It has a hold on the global marketplace that iOS could only wish for. Besides, we predicted this temporary upswing for Apple this holiday season because of the death of Steve Jobs and the Apple brand being on everyone’s mind.
That being said, here are our 5 fun picks for the top Android apps for 2012.
While you won’t actually use this app in 2012, it does provide a fun little way to countdown the hours, minutes and seconds to the New Year. Different wallpaper customizations help move the time along. So, while not exactly on of the top Android apps for 2012, this app will help you usher in a great New Year!
There are so many predictions and speculation surrounding the end of the world in 2012 that it can make even the most suspicious non-believers a
little bit inquisitive. This app is based on the book of the same name and covers many different theories, from Biblical to the Mayan calendar. Check it out for $1.36.
Sure, the app isn’t exactly “new” in 2012, but we have a feeling the popularity will grow exponentially during the New Year. Still only available in the US this Android music app has tons of upside and the backing of a giant. To be honest, we’ve been waiting for Google to put out a kick butt music app for a few years. Now that it’s here, let the heavens rejoice and iTunes beware! Definitely one of top Android apps for 2012 and way beyond.
The entire NFL and an app that is completely FREE and allows you to play like the real deal. We love it and you will too. Not a football person? Try it. See? Now, you’re addicted. 32 NFL teams and over 2,000 players are at your fingertips.
Google bought Clever Sense and we loved it. We downloaded Alfred and reviewed it. We loved it even more. What makes Alfred so special is his “learnability.” Seek places out, love them and Alfred will remember that place AND places like that forever. He’s a cool cat, that Alfred, and with Clever Sense and Google teaming up to create software apps that rivals Apple’s Siri…all we can say is bring on 2012!
So, that’s our take on the top Android apps for 2012. You may have a different list-probably a bigger one. Let us now what you think. In the meantime, have a safe holiday season and keep droiding!
