    Default Hello! I'm new to Android...

    ...and I'm looking for app recommendations. Got a Galaxy S4 Mini a week ago. I like it, but I'm still getting used to it. I'd like to see what you all think are the best bets for the following list (free is preferred, of course):
    • Task Manager
    • Simple memo app (I'd especially like to categorize notes and to password-protect some - "S Memo" seems ok, but doesn't have these)
    • Is there one that saves directly to Dropbox or Box.net?
    • Wallpaper manager (especially one that auto changes at regular intervals)
    • Weight tracker (Just basic weight, with quick graph)
    • Vidcast/Podcast player (I'm trying "Podkicker" right now)
    • RSS Reader
    • Car mileage (nothing fancy)
    • GPS car locator (are any stock apps capable of this?)
    • Internet Radio (especially with multiple alarms, sleep function, and manual adding stations - I'm trying "Online Radio" right now. It's good, but only has one alarm)
    • Quickly check MLB and NHL scores/schedule/standings. I have MLB.tv and ESPN SportsCenter, and they're fine, I was just looking for something even simpler to quickly check scores.
    • Games: Backgammon, Solitaire, Freecell, Pyramid, Spider (currently trying "Solitaire Classic" and "Backgammon Free" -- OK, but no pyramid)
    • System: Battery app (the stock "Battery Manager" is ok, but I'd also like something that measures the battery health, not just the charge time), IP Proxy (I'm trying the "Network Preferences Add-on" in Firefox - but I'm not thrilled with using Firefox), File Manager (nothing fancy -- is there anything better than "My Files"?), Lastly, app to quickly disable sleep function when needed.

    I hope this list isn't too long! I'd appreciate any suggestions.
