About


As mobile technology becomes more prevalent, people can use their smartphones for more than just texting, phone calls, and playing music. Smartphones are basically mobile computing platforms capable of completing many tasks. I added this page to go along with the listing of resources for iPods and iPads. Just as a note, Applications that run on these devices are shortened to the term, "Apps."

Android Market


The Android market is preloaded on any phone that runs on the Android platform from Google. They are many apps for a multitude of tasks, they range in price from free to many dollars. Price does not necessarily dictate usefulness, while some free apps are scaled down versions of the fee versions, many companies and organizations put fully functional applications out for free.You can access the Android Market here.

The apps are organized by basic usage category, and then listed in alphabetical order.
