SpeedView is a GPS enabled speedometer that has a few other settings to show you the direction you are traveling. This program is very precise by locking onto many GPS satellites.
Urbanspoon – A free application
If you like to eat out but can never decide what to try then Urbanspoon is the program of you. Just shake your Android device and Urbanspoon will help you find something tasty. This program also has the ability to lock on certain prices, food styles, and cities.
Gmote – A free application
Gmote allows you to remotely control your computer via a WiFi connection by downloading the free Gmote server program. Use Gmote as a trackpad just like you would on a laptop or as a remote control in Media Player. Gmote also has the ability to search through the computer’s drives to find media files that may be played either on the computer or on the Android device itself.
Yelp – A free application
Yelp is a user review service that gives a generalized rating by the average person. Search through many different categories to find exactly what you are looking for. Want to know the rating of a business you are at? Use the monocle feature to hover over the outside of the business with the camera to get detailed information.
