Looking for something new to try out on this long President's Day Weekend? Well, if you already grabbed some accessories at a discount the next thing to do would be to check out some new applications for your device, right? Let's hit the break and check out some of our favorites this week!
Anndrew Vacca - Dotti Disposable Camera (Free)
Every once in a while I stumble across an app that makes me kick myself for not thinking of it first. Dotti Disposable Camera is one of those apps. A disposable camera in the truest sense, Dotti is free to use and comes with a virtual roll of 12 shots. Once the 12 shots are taken, you'll have an option (no obligation) to order the prints for a cool $4.99. They'll ship (for free!) to the recipient of your choosing, which makes Dotti prints a perfect unexpected gift. And another plus: if your prints happen to get jacked in the mail, developer Sincerely Inc. will replace them at no additional cost. Sure, Walmart or Target might be cheaper, but who still brings their camera into the store to print hard copies? And if you're rocking a stellar shooter a la the Galaxy S II, your point and shoot might have finally found itself a spot at the bottom of your junk drawer. [Market Link]
Chris Parsons - Quello for Google TV (Free)
If you have a GoogleTV and enjoy watching concerts, then there is no better app then Quello to make use of. They have a pretty massive collection of live concerts, most of which are delivered in HD quality though -- I have come across a few that were clearly not HD. Pricing varies per concert but they do offer previews for each so that you may decide for dropping down the coin. Overall, a good service and a great addition to any GoogleTV. [Market Link]
Richard Devine - Retro Camera (Free)
I'm partial to a bit of photography, but like a lot of people in the present day i don't carry about a dedicated point and shoot camera when i have my smartphone with me everywhere i go. I also like to take pictures that are interesting, and make use of various special effects.
Retro Camera lets you add such effects without having to touch any post editing software. The free version is ad supported, but they aren't intrusive into the experience. You have 5 different cameras to choose from, each with their own style of photo. It's really very simple and very nicely executed. We've all seen our iPhone using friends creating these sweet-looking Instagram photos, why should we be left out of all the fun. Retro Camera lets you create your own old school photographs to show off yourself. [Market Link]
Jared DiPane - Exodus Live Wallpaper (Free)
Live wallpapers are a great part of Android devices, and while some stay away from them because they use a little extra battery I love them because they often add a rather unique feel to the device. Joko Interactive has made some of my favorite live wallpapers to date, and Exodus is yet another of my favorites. The wallpapers are always customizable, you can customize colors, sizes, movement, and more all from within the settings of the wallpaper. If you want to switch up the theme design all you do is tap into the settings and you are good to go. The download is free, and the styles are endless, so give it a shot. [Market Link]
