Sean Brunett - Buffalo Bills Mobile (Free)

Android Central

I’m a huge football fan, specifically a Buffalo Bills fan. That’s why I was excited to see the release billsof an official app for my favorite team. It is a nicely done mobile version of the main Bills website. With the app, Bills fans can check news, view the upcoming schedule and see photos from the latest games/events. One of my favorite features of the app though, is the collection of videos. I love to watch post-game press conferences and coach interviews during the week, so to be able to view them easily on my mobile device is a huge plus. You can also track fantasy players, check out the official Twitter feed of the Buffalo Bills, and view an interactive map of Ralph Wilson Stadium, so you’re prepared for gameday. Buffalo Bills fans need to check this app out, it is very well done. LET’S GO BUFFALO!!! [Market Link]

Anndrew Vacca - Starbucks (Free)


I enjoy anything that makes my wallet lighter (except for spending money), and the Starbucks app starbucksfor Android does just that. There aren't many bells and whistles, and unfortunately no, you can't order coffee from your phone. What you can do, however, is take all those little Starbucks gift cards you got for Christmas and add them to the app. Your phone will act as a giftcard: the balance will transfer to your phone, and you can have your favorite barista scan your app-generated barcode just as he or she would a real plastic card. Now, if only Dunkin Donuts would get with the times... [Market Link]

Android Central Editors' app picks for Oct 1, 2011


I agree that Pixlr-o-matic is awesome because it lets you do a bit more than just add a preset filter. You can also add transparent backgrounds for even more effects and it lets you combine effects as well. It's by Autodesk, the same people who make AutoCAD.

The poor barista has to FIRST hit a button on his screen before you can scan your fancy sbux app. So tell them your using the app before you hold your phone over the scanner. Nevertheless, it takes twice as long and baristas just think you're a wannabe techie. Imo :)

Plus uou gotta reach for your wallet to tip them anyway.

Still, the barista better get used to it, because that's where the world is going.

there are a few NFL teams that have gotten official Android apps recently, they all seem to be pretty good, very impressive.

Everyone knows that the Buffalo Bills only had 7... maybe 8 fans in the whole world at the beginning of the season. Apparently people are already jumping on the Bills bandwagon. Must be a great app for all of those fair weather fans out there.
