    So I figure this would be a cool thread to have to share apps that you think not too many people know about or that they should know about. I have one in particular that I've had for over 2 years now that I've never come across anyone else having it (and they usually think I'm rooted to do it) that I'll get the ball rolling. Please also share details about the app so the friends here can quickly skim the thread.

    Wave Launcher
    Download at Google Play
    It's not a home launcher. Rather, it's a gesture-based app shortcut launcher. You can choose where you want to slide your thumb from and a "wave" (customizable) of apps that you choose appears on the screen. Simply then slide your finger to the app you want to launch and release your finger from the screen and it launches.

    Sample screenshot taken from Google Play


    If you're like me and always trying to find faster ways to launch apps from ANYWHERE I haven't found anything better than Wave Launcher.

    If you remember this handheld game from your childhood, developer TouchGrove has done a wonderful job of recreating this classic for the Android platform:

    LED Football

    Amazon Appstore Link




    The game controls remarkably well on my, almost 2 year old, HTC Desire. Luckily I was able to get it as a FAOTD a while back.

    I downloaded that as well. I believe I was in 7'th grade when those came out. Good recreation plays well brings back memories.

    Tecmo football rocked. Christian Okoye was an unstoppable beast.

    I think you meant Tecmo Bowl on the NES. Tecmo Super Bowl on the SNES. 100 yard TD passes ftw!

    NoBloat app - an app to delete all those pesky carrier apps you don't want on your phone!

    If you don't want or can't flash a ROM, NoBloat is possibly the next best thing.

    I've been curious about this. I like to support the developers (since Android lags behind iOS in developer revenue) but when I read things like Angry Birds' battery usage is 40% used to serve ads, I get upset. Same with how much bandwidth I'm wasting by serving up constant ads. I gladly pay the premium fee for those apps that will eliminate ads for these reasons.

    I am wondering if the Adblockers (such as AdFree Android) prevent the ads even being served (will it save on battery and bandwidth) or do the ads still download, but just get prevented from displaying? In the description, it says it nullifies requests, so I'm guessing the ads never even download, so it would save bandwidth.

    Screebl is a great app (as long as your not on a Motorola phone, bad battery drain for some reason) that keeps your screen on as long as it is held in a non-flat position. The included app from Samsung using the front facing camera might replace this if it works well though.
