Android Apps worth downloading

So in one of my earlier posts, I mentioned my purchase of the HTC Evo, which is an Android phone. I love this phone, and I also love many apps on it. Below I listed the apps I have downloaded that you might want to download yourself. BTW, all the apps mentioned below are free, I think so of them have better versions that are available for purchase.

Fandango Movies: you can search theaters/showtimes nearby you, buy tickets, look at reviews, watch trailers and more

Foursquare: useful for tips of nearby places and connecting with friends, can also link to Facebook and Twitter

Fring: free video calls! My phone has a front facing camera as well as a back facing camera, the front facing camera allows me to video chat, similar to Skype.

Gas Buddy: Helps you find the lowest gas prices nearby

Lookout Mobile Security: Blocks viruses and spyware, backsup contacts, photos and call history, , locate phone on a map, activate a loud alarm

Pandora: Personalized radio station

PingChat!: Somewhat like BBM, but you can use it across Android, iPhone and BlackBerry networks.

Shazam: Ever hear a song, but don't know the name? With Shazam it will tell you the name and artist of the song playing and give you the option to buy it.

Tango: Allows you to video chat...similar to the Fring app

Twidroyd: Personally my favority Twitter app for an Android phone. I have also tried Twitter for Android, Peep, and Tweetcaster, but I like Twidroyd the best.

Vlingo: Very useful app, especially when driving. It will read your texts aloud and also allows you to send texts, email, search, use Facebook/Twitter/Foursquare and much more by just talking into the phone.

The Weather Channel: Useful for checking the weather, also can use GPS to give you the weather of you current location.

Yelp: Search for places nearby or afar, look up reviews, etc!
