Android Sensors is an app for Android that will display all of a phone’s sensors. The app lets users monitor what their phone’s sensors are detecting, record that, play it back, and export it.
WeCroak is an Android App designed to remind the user that he or she is going to die.
Each day, we’ll send you five invitations at randomized times to stop and think about death. It’s based on a Bhutanese folk saying that to be a happy person one must contemplate death five times daily.
The WeCroak invitations come at random times and at any moment just like death. When they come, you can open the app for a quote about death from a poet, philosopher, or notable thinker.
Business Calendar 2 is the best app I’ve found so far to replace the stock Google Calendar app on Android. It features lots of customization options so I can display and interact with my many calendars in exactly the way I want.
Really Bad Chess is an game for Android that implements . . . well . . . really bad chess.
Really Bad Chess is just like chess, but with totally random pieces. Try 8 Knights, 4 Bishops, and 3 pawns — why not?
If you find a board like this appealing, then this is the really bad chess app for you!
List My Apps for Android is one of those apps that fills a very niche purpose, but if you happen to need the functionality it provides, it is a godsend.
As the name suggests, the app simply outputs a list of all apps installed on your Android device in plain text, HTML, Markdown, etc.
I assume most people use this to share app list with friends, family or associates. I use this app every time I’m getting close to changing phones–with 568 apps on my phone and a lot of customizations surrounding those apps, I use it as the first part of generating a checklist of everything I need to do to get a new phone up and running like my old one.
I have tried different versions of KeepTrack for Android over past six years, but always ended up abandoning it for one reason or another. The latest version, however, has earned a permanent spot on my phone and warrants the company’s tagline, “The Swiss knife of tracking apps!”
KeepTrack allows the users to set up multiple custom data tracking entries. For example, I was able to use it to quickly set up a widget to track my blood pressure as well as another widget that I hit everytime I drink 32 ounces of water during the day.
When I had pain from a knee injury, I set up a tracking widget to hit ever time I took my pain meds, so that I could look back at anytime and make sure I was taking the medicine at the appropriate intervals.
Data can be entered directly into the app itself, or users can create widgets on an Android homescreen for specific data parameters as well (I have some things I track that I don’t want on any of my home screens due to privacy reasons, for example).
The app itself is free, but there are a number of in-app purchases which are absolutely essential to getting the most out of the app. All of the in-app purchase costs a little over $4 in total (one of those is a 99 cent annual cloud storage backup subscription, which worked as advertised when I switched phones several times in the course of a month).
