Top 25 Apps for Android 2.1 (Eclair) Thread Launched

Following the success of similar threads for the Windows Mobile platform, XDA member jerry43812 has initiated a thread designed to collect the most valuable and original Android 2.1 applications available to the XDA community.

In the thread, Eclair users are encouraged to share the apps that they don’t think they could live without. What jerry43812 is trying to do differently is to focus on the less heard-of submissions to the Market, so that they can get more recognition for their ingenuity. For example, we all know how innovative something like Google Goggles is but some of us may have missed the extremely useful Titanium Backup.

Both paid and free apps and games are being considered in the thread, with votes being recounted regularly as new posters give their input. The aim of the thread is to end up with an evolving list of the top 25 best apps for Android 2.1.

You vote for your favourites in the collection thread.

Thanks for the tip, jerry43812!

ben_duder is an editor on XDA-Developers, the largest community for Android users. Hi! My name's Ben, and I'm proud to be one of the news writers at xda-developers. I live near London and have spent the last ten years wasting all the money I get my hands on on new gadgets with which to fulfil my technolust. I first got into HTC phones when I found a Lobster 700TV (the HTC Monet) at a very good price, and I'm ashamed to say that I couldn't have cared less about what operating system the phone was running as long as I could watch The Simpsons on the bus. As fellow Monet owners might know, the 'TV' part of the phone's alternate title was somewhat deceiving and was completely abandoned by the service providers in England. However, by then I had already fallen in love with the freedom Windows Mobile had given me. After the Monet came a Universal, with a Touch Pro following that. I've just bought a G1 (yeah, I know, get with the times!) because I'm really interested in Android as a budding operating system and don't think I could ever cope with a 'dumbphone' now that I know what's on offer. Although I haven't contributed much to the site in terms of programming or cooking help, I hope that I can give a bit back by letting you guys know what's new through my articles. If you have any questions, suggestions or complaints about those articles, feel free to get in touch with me via PM using the URL above. View ben_duder's posts and articles here.

Google’s Prank Roundup for April Fools 2015

Once again, we have arrived on the most magical of holidays - the annual unveiling of HalfLife 3, and day on which co-workers believe it is appropriate to duct tape air horns behind doors. I speak, of course, about April Fools Day. As has become their custom, Google launched lighthearted "pranks" for each of their various services (with other tech sites following suit), and we have done our best to round up the humorous products and tweaks surfacing thus far. Warning: spoilers...
