Apps of the week

See the apps we recommend this week

Sunday is app day here at AC. We look back at the apps we found ourselves using this week, and each of us pick out one that we want to recommend. Sometimes, the apps are boring utilities that work really well, sometimes they are games that keep you occupied and on the edge of your seat, but they are always applications that we think are done well and worth a look.

Have a gander at what we're recommending, then be sure to holler in the comments to tell everyone about any great apps you've found.

From the Editor's Desk: Galaxy Notes everywhere

Samsung Galaxy Note 4

The Galaxy Note has moved out of its niche

Phil is spending some much-deserved holiday time away from his desk this weekend, so you're stuck with me. He'll be back with more weekly punditry next Sunday.

In the meantime ...

I had a very interesting day this past week. Some last minute holiday gifts needed bought, and since I live in a sleepy little town, that meant a road trip. My wife and I ended up spending the day (and the money) at the Crystal City shopping mall in Arlington, Virginia where both the selection and the crowds were much bigger. We had a great day and picked up everything we needed, but I also noticed something else.

Nexus 9 case roundup

FYY premium Nexus 9 case

Keep that Nexus 9 covered

When a new Android tablet like the Nexus 9 arrives, third-party cases soon follow. The folks at our store are working out exactly what we're going to carry for the Nexus 9, but we know two things about early adopters who already have their Nexus 9 in their hands — nobody likes to wait, and we all want something to cover and protect our new (and expensive) tablet.

Both the official Magic Case and Keyboard Folio are really nice cases, but we know they won't be perfect for everyone. I spent the last week or so digging through Amazon and trying out a slew of third-party cases. We've put together a list of the "best of the best" for you to have a look through while you are waiting. The list of available accessories keeps growing every day, so I'm not done here. But this is a great start and chances are you'll see something that would work well for you.
