My Favourite Apps of 2013

Here are just some of the Android Apps and Games that I used most often in 2013. Which range from RSS feed apps to some of the my favourite games.

Android Central: I enjoy reading Android Central very much , and its nice to see that they took the time to create and app that can be considered a great looking app and even better is that they have a Android Central community on Google+ so you can sign up for the beta and help give ideas and suggestions of what to include in the next version update.

Hangouts: It is a great app to help bring together all the different chats in while using a Google service and what's even better is that it just recently got the ability to do SMS and it has become the stock messaging app for the Nexus 5.

Falcon Pro for Android: I prefer this over the standard Twitter app for Android. It is one of the best Twitter Clients that has come out recently. It has a nice and clean UI and beats all the other Twitter Clients out there including most of the Free Clients. Its a shame that Falcon Pro hit the Twitter token limit of how many users can use the client but the developer has made it available for download for free on the Falcon Pro website.

Pushbullet: It is a great app for sending notes to yourself (or you friends) or files from you computer to phone and vice versa. Ever since I installed both the Chrome extension and the app, I am finding it more and more useful everyday, the only thing that I would like to see, is a bigger file size limit (bigger than 25MB).

LinkedIn Pulse News: I believe that this is one of the better news apps out there on Android which is also on iOS and has a Chrome extension, and the Android app has become even better and nicer looking and slicker than ever before, this may be due to the fact that LinkedIn acquired Pulse News and did a major revamp.
