Who doesn't love some new applications for their Android device? If you happen to be a fan of new applications be sure to hit the break and check out some of our favorites from this week.
Anndrew Vacca - Stumblr (Free)
What's the greatest thing about Tumblr? No, it's not the snark, or the ranting, or the waxing poetic. It's the photography that I enjoy the most, which is why I have to suggest Stumblr for Android as my app pick of the week. Stumblr aggregates Tumblr photos into a beautiful, clean UI-- while you can explore any blog on Tumblr, your bookmarked favorites will remain at the top of the Today page. Stumblr is also capable of saving photos directly to your internal or SD storage. It's not perfect, and some of the navigation needs a bit of tweaking, but if you're a Tumblr die hard, you'd be silly to pass up Stumblr. [Market Link]
Sean Brunett - A Charlie Brown Christmas ($4.99)
It’s Christmas Eve, so what better way to celebrate than to relive one of the most beloved classics of all time? A Charlie Brown Christmas is close to many hearts and now it can go with you anywhere with the Android app. The app takes you through the original story and features many of the original voices. There is original dialogue and music from the 1965 classic, including narration from Peter Robbins, who voiced Charlie Brown. Other features include the ability to decorate your very own Charlie Brown Christmas Tree, educational features such as word highlighting and touch and drag objects to bring them to life. It’s a great app, particularly around the holidays. At $4.99, I’d definitely say it’s worth it to relive one of your favorite classics. [Market Link]
Richard Devine - Doodle Jump Christmas Special ($0.99)
It's Christmas so I thought it was only right to pick a little festive treat this holiday season. Doodle Jump Christmas Special is basically Doodle Jump, but with a Christmas twist.
The original is one of the most addictive games ever made and while i completely suck at it, I just can't help but keep playing. It looks great, requires very little effort and the doodle guy has a little Christmas hat on. It also has new monsters and a rocket power up. But the fundamental concept stays the same. Enjoy.
