Most useful Android smartphone apps
The Android Market may not have as many apps as the iPhone App Store yet, but there are still more than enough to be overwhelmed, and it continues to grow at a breakneck pace. To help you sort through them all, here is my latest list of the 20 most useful Android apps. I've also recently updated my list of the most useful iPhone apps and you'll notice several of the same apps on both lists.
Remember that I primarily had business professionals in mind when making this list and also keep in mind that this is a snapshot in time. The Android platform is developing so quickly that I guarantee my home screen will look different a month from now. Still, here's my list of tried-and-true Android apps that I can highly recommend.
If you'd prefer to view this as a list instead of a photo gallery, then see the companion blog post.
