feb_300_android_apps_sh.jpgDon't be confused. Though the Android Market is far smaller than the Apple App Store, 16,000 downloads is nothing to scoff at. Android's marketplace of apps is rife with selection, and you'd be remiss to turn down a smart phone with this adroit mobile OS because of overblown comparisons to the iPhone's digital software store. In fact, much of the functionality offered in the App Store can be found in the Android Market. Want to tweet with the best of them? Use Seesmic. Looking for a restaurant recommendation? Check out Android versions of Yelp and Zagat To Go, the latter of which alone describes 40,000 eateries, bars, and travel accomodations.
