Tablet Market

Back again for your weekly dosage of applications, so let's hit the break together so you can get your fix!

Anndrew Vacca - Tablet Market (Free)

Tablet Market

Not all apps have to be pretty to get the job done, as is apparent with Tablet Market, available for Tablet Marketfree in the Android Market. Simple concept and an even simpler execution: Tablet Market aggregates all tablet-optimized apps into categories such as tools, entertainment, games, widgets, and more. Tablet Market isn't really a store, per se, as it simply links back to the Android Market, and it isn't exactly pretty. But to have all Honeycomb-optimized apps in one place is something that the real Android Market is severely lacking in, so the Tablet Market's shortfalls are easily overlooked for the service it offers.

Jerry Hildenbrand - Blocks of Pyramid Breaker (Free)

Pyramid Breaker

Blocks of Pyramid Breaker is a very nicely done breakout style game for Android (1.5 and higher).  PyramidThe gameplay is really smooth, the graphics are beautifully done, and the breakout genre of games is loved by many.  You have the usual power-ups and bonuses -- which you'll need in the higher levels, this game gets fast-paced!  In addition, the app is completely free and full-featured.  Ads are what drives development, but they are very tastefully done, only appearing between levels and not interfering with your game in any way.  As a bonus, the game asks for no squirrelly permissions, only needing to open network sockets to grab it's ads.

If you like bustin' blocks, and appreciate a well done game for Android, check it out. [Market Link]


Chris Parsons - µtorrent Remote (Free)

Remote

Richard Devine - Say No to 0870 (Free) (UK only)

Say No

UK premium rate telephone numbers are hellish expensive. Even more so when calling from a mobile phone. We pay the phone networks for so many free minutes, then have to spend a fortune extra to ring someone like the bank or the credit card company.

Say NoEnter one of the core communication apps i use every week on my phone - say no to 0870. It isn't pretty, but it works, and helps you save money. Enter the premium rate phone number or the name of whoever you're trying to ring and it will search for an area dialling code which will be free to call from inclusive minutes on your mobile plan. Click the number, dialler launches, press call, talk without worrying about how big the bill is getting.

It doesn't always find a number, but it works more than it fails, and i for one will never be without this on my phone. [Market Link]

Alex Dobie - Lloyds TSB Mobile Banking (Free) (UK-only)

Android Central

Many UK high street banks are starting to launch their own Android apps, and the latest is Lloyds TSB. The Lloyds TSB Mobile Banking app integrates the bank's slick mobile banking mini-site, along with the ability to track down nearby ATMs and Lloyds TSB branches. As the app uses the Lloyds TSBsame security as the regular online banking site, there's no need to worry about your financial info being compromised if your phone's lost or stolen -- your session will time out after a few minutes of inactivity, and there's also the option to log out from online banking and just use the location-based features.

Sure, there's nothing here that you probably couldn't get using a web browser or Google Maps, but Lloyds has done a good job of unifying all this information inside a single app. The Lloyds TSB Mobile Banking app is available for free from the Android Market, for devices running Android 2.1 and higher. [Market Link]
