TechCredo has fine-combed the Market and the interwebs in an attempt to find the top free Android apps, and this is the result. All the applications have been tested and carefully selected, and the list is regularly updated with new software. Like many of the best things in life, these apps are free – Android definitely offers a lot of excellent software without having to spend a dime.
Since it’s easy to just search and browse the Market to get hold of great apps, a list like this might seem redundant. However, the Market’s abundance of titles can sometimes be a bit overwhelming and make it hard to know what to download – and even know what to look for in the first place. Hopefully this list will provide a good overview, especially for those new to Android: a place to start when you are about to fill up your device with the top free Android apps.
- Please note that a few of these applications are currently only available in the US, and some of them require Android 1.6 or higher.
- The QR Code links will bring up an image that you can scan with Barcode Scanner using your phone’s camera, and will take you directly to the Market.
- Some of the applications have a Video link as well, and it will show a demo/review video for that title.
- Apps surrounded by a box with a solid, blue border are the editor’s personal favorites.
