First Android apps revealed!

Categories: Mobile Phones News   Tags: , , , ,

T-Mobile has just unveiled the first 50 apps to be made available free on the Android Market getting us psyched for all the free apps we’ll be able to grab.

Among the 50 apps are some of the winners of Google’s Android Developers Challenge, guaranteed to demonstrate the innovation on offer from the open source platform.

At the top of our most wanted list is Wikitude, which cunningly displays local info on screen while scanning your surroundings. A bit like The Terminator or Robocop.

Another, called ShopSavvy, scans product barcodes to search for the best nearby prices, finding reviews and letting you know which shops sell what you’re looking for using Google Maps.

Others T-Mobile were keen to shout about include SplashPlay which shows you how to play a guitar, and a seismographer app letting you detect the Earth’s movements.

The apps can be found in the lifestyle, multimedia, productivity, tools and games & puzzles categories in the Android Market, where app pickers can view reviews, ratings, comments and comb over the most popular applications.

Lucky US G1 handlers will be able to get their hands on the apps from Monday, while we’ll have to wait until Thursday to get our hands on the G1.
