In this new segment we demonstrate 5 applications for the Android platform that we think are video worthy. Each segment is 30 seconds long to give just a small taste of what the program is capable of doing. To download the program directly to your Android device just snap a picture of the QR-Code using Google Goggles or any other QR-Code scanner and you will be taken directly to the download on the Android Market.
The applications demonstrated in this video are:
Bump – A free application.
