List of essential Android apps – Part 2
This is the second part of the list of applications which I think you might find useful. You can check out the first part here. So, without further ado, lets’ start right-away.
Flipboard is another news app. Like Google Currents, you can add news from various sources – magazines, websites, etc. . What I really like about Flipboard is the ability to connect your Facebook/Twitter/Google+ account (supports a total of 12 social networks), so you can see all your updates at one place.
You can download Flipboard from here.
ESPN ScoreCenter (Free)
ScoreCenter lets you keep track of your favorite sport. In addition to showing live scores, ScoreCenter also delivers latest news and league standings of your favorite team. It supports all major sports like – Baseball, Rugby, Formula 1, NASCAR, etc.

Schemer is one of Google‘s least known apps. Its a really cool app which suggests you things, or schemes, that you can do if you bored or don’t have anything else to do. Its a pretty intelligent app too, it suggests you schemes based on various factors like time of the day and the weather. You add your own scheme too. You should definitely give this app a shot.
You can download schemer from here.
Tasks (Free and $0.99)
Tasks is a pretty simple to do app. You just add things that you want to do and strike out the ones you’ve already done. Tasks is based on the Holo UI, so its pretty neat. Tasks syncs completely with your Google account, so you can just add a task from your computer and it’ll be there on your phone. Plus, it has a nice widget for quick access.
Apart from the free version being supported by ads, there is no difference in functionality between the free and the paid version.
You can download Tasks from here
Total Commander (Free)
Total Commander is purely a file manager. It is has all the basic features – like cut, copy, paste, delete, unzip, send, search – that you would want from a file manager. Now, there are tons of file manager apps out there, but I prefer Total Commander because its pretty darn simple. When I’m looking for a file manager I don’t want an app with fancy icons, I just want a quick file manager, Total Commander is just that.

That concludes part 2 of my list of essential Android apps. Don’t worry I’m not done yet, there are a lot more apps to go. Stay tuned for part three.
