Apps are at the front and center of any smartphone experience, and with over a million apps on the Google Play Store and new apps being submitted to our forums every day, staying up to date on the latest apps and games can be a hassle. At XDA, we don’t discriminate apps - if it’s interesting, innovative, original or useful, we mention them.

Tally Your Truancy With Time Tracker for Your Android Phone and Honeycomb Tablet
Do you find yourself dilly dallying your time away with no foreseeable end? Luckily XDA forum member Xezuka has written a nifty program to help alleviate this. Time Tracker for Android is an Android application aimed at helping you keep track of exactly what projects and tasks are eating up all of your time. Making things even sweeter, this app has full support for the Framents API and works excellently on both Android 2.x phones and Android 3.0 Honeycomb Tablets.
In the words of the developer:
I’ve always wanted a quick time tracking app that didn’t have a bunch of data pushed in my face.
I found writing down on paper was easier than these complicated apps/software. With too much to deal with, select, set, and fill out, before long I’ve spent a minute or more just telling it what I was about to do. So I decided to try my first attempt at an app for my Xoom — which then extended to my phone.
I need some testers to try it out and give me some feedback. I recently added support for Android 2.2+ on top of the native support for 3.0 so it can be used on your tablets and now your phones.
Interested in finding out exactly how much time you’re wasting? If so, be sure to continue on to the original thread. While you’re at it, make sure to leave some feedback to help further app development!

Glimpse Notifications by XDA Senior Member xrad offers just that. You'd normally have to turn your screen on manually to see your notifications. Instead, Glimpse Notifications will do it for you when a notification comes in. That doesn't mean...
