aDownloader New – A new native bit torrent client designed for Android smartphones and tablets. Do not confuse this app with the first aDownloader app developed by the same Asha Team. This is a new and improved app with a better encryption, nicer UI and more features.

Ultimate Backup – Like the name says, it’s an app for backing up and restoring other apps, including the data and market links. It has everything that Titanium Backup offers, packed in a nice user interface. The paid version has a lower price tag ($2.99 opposed to Titanium Backup’s $6.11),  so that’s definitely a plus.

Dominic Ross

Go Launcher Ex – Another great launcher to modify your Android phone I recently found in the Play Store. It can add customised widgets, wallpapers, themes and apps. It has hundreds of themes available for free in the store. There are also premium features available.

Filip Despotovski

Subway Surfers – is another arcade game similar to Temple Run, but made by Kiloo Games. It’s a colorful mix of running, jumping and rolling in order to escape from the police officer who is accompanied by his dog. It’s fast, fun and suited for all ages.

Twicca is a lightweight, but fully featured twitter client. It has a very clean, minimalistic interface but packs almost all the bells and whistles you could ever need such as color labeling the timeline. The app also has a good amount of plugins available if you want some additional functionality.
