Top 5 Android Apps for September 2012
As we are nearing the end of this year I think we saw some of the most creative Android apps in 2012. I know that we still got a few months left in order to determine our year round winners but I am already excited and noted quite a lot of applications for my shortlist. In September we saw a lot of Android apps in various genres including Wallpapers, Social Networking, sports etc. This month is truly diverse where developers (both new and old) and launching major updates to their apps and aiming to refine the experience. So I thought I would list you the top 5 Android Apps for the month of September 2012.
If you are a fan of the college football content that takes place round the whole year then this new app from ESPN is all that you need. The app lets you follow the latest scores, games highlights etc. The interface is very easy to navigate and I particularly liked the top news section that features the most trending stories from the world of college football. Once you select a certain team then you will be present with a team profile. You can track their progress in every game, view photos and videos along with social sharing capabilities. One of the most noted features in this ESPN app is that you can watch a live game using a feature called WatchESPN. If you are a football fan like me then go get this app and start cheering for your favorite college.
Gameloft is pretty serious about their streak of hit games this year. In September they released yet another strategy game called Cosmic Colony. The game lets you create your dream colony or civilization on an alien planet and you need to manage it from attacks by other space invaders, earn rewards for your progress and the usual stuff. What makes Cosmic Colony so interesting is it’s mini games when you trying to fight out invaders. Set in the 2088 AD, this game is a sci-fi fan’s delight. The graphics are pretty polished and there are lots of upgrades to choose from. The game mechanics are decent but I really appreciate the structuring of the game. You can travel across several planets and further expand your empire.
Gameloft also did a great job in integrating social elements and multiplayer support to this game. When you visit a friend’s colony you both earn some rewards which can be used to upgrade your own empire. This game is very addictive but I must tell you that if you really want to enjoy the most fascinating parts then you need to spend real cash and buy some dollars inside the game. Other than that, Cosmic Colony is free to download.
If you belong to any one of the Asian countries and you wanna keep that patriotic feeling every time with you then Flags of Asia is the perfect app to look out for. This Live Wallpaper features the flags of all Asian countries and displays them in a smooth motion. The background scenery can be changed according to your liking and it even features the support of your own custom image on the background. The flags are sharp and detailed in texture and I really loved the cloth movement physics of this Android app. Go grab it for your country now at a price of just $ 1.
Klip is a new kind of a video community that looks a lot like Pinterest. In fact when you visit their web version then you can call their site as Pinterest for Video Bloggers. The Android app is a major extension of Klip(website) because the way this site works is by gathering new video feeds from their users. These feeds are often taken by people who are on the go, so the Android App does a great job in simplifying things for them. The basic functionality of the application is to help you shoot an instant clip and upload quickly to your profile so that others can start responding to your videos. A well-spaced interface, it’s very easy to learn the whole process once you start Kilp for the first time. This app is completely free and I highly suggest that you give it a try to break apart from the YouTube monotony.
As the name suggest thumb is an instant opinion app for Android and other platforms that lets you share your opinions when others ask. Thumb also allows you to ask a question where others can shed their thoughts. The way this app works is really simple. The top part of the app showcases the questions and the bottom area allows you to thumbs up or down based on your opinion. Once your voting is complete you will be able to see the statistics for that question. You can also add your own comments to questions asked by others. I think you will really like Thumb if you are lost or confused with a decision and you need some friendly advice.
These are the top 5 Android Apps for the month of September 2012. Now I am just waiting for your comments and suggestions of other inclusions.
