Joel's Favorite Android Apps
First thanks being o.k. with my bringing my 5 year old on, Andrew to the last meeting. He does want to become a "Junior WLUG member". For that reason I did not contribute much to the android meeting.
Below is a summary of my favorite apps, some were mentioned Wednesday and some were not. All are listed with a $ sign if they had a cost. I am a cheapskate so it had to be pretty good for me to fork some over. Thanks, Joel
