Welcome to our Top-Ratings again! Today I am going to tell you about my personal Top-10 free Android applications. mobile application development are doing their best, and there are a lot of useful, convenient and just funny Android appson the market. I’ve picked out my favorite 10 apps. All of them are free and available on the Android market (no side suspicious software), and I use them myself so I can assess them by right. So, let’s start!

You already know what I need my smartphone for. And you also know that there are a lot of different Android apps reviews, so I won’t tell you about the most popular web-browsers, news readers, social networks apps, and so on. This Top-10 is my personal choice. So, the apps I use most frequently are:

1. Catch. It allows you to capture your ideas and experiences in text, voice, and images. You can make quick notes and photos, attach to your tasks comments, images, and QR-codes and set reminders. Catch has also a very handy desktop widget.

2. Task Killer. It kills the apps in background and helps to save phone battery. I like this app especially since I discovered that all Android apps I once used stay in phone’s memory. Task Killer quickly makes them away.

3. Taxido. It’s an Android application for one-tap-taxi call. I like it very much because I’m often late and need a taxi, but I can’t remember any service numbers. Taxido helps me to solve this problem: it defines my mobile operator and substitutes automatically actual call numbers. It also defines my location in the case I’m lost in an unfamiliar district.

4. App Monster. It’s an application manager for Android which allows easy management of your apps. You can backup them, restore, uninstall, install from SD card, share and much more with a few taps on the screen.

5. Where's My Droid. I often lose my phone in my bag or somewhere in my room while the ringer is turned off. That’s why Where's My Droid is a very good thing for me. After texting the phone a custom attention word the app turns the ringer volume up and makes the phone ring. It's also possible to get the GPS location of the phone and a link to Google maps (in the case you lost the phone somewhere abroad).

6. BatteryTime Lite. This application shows in an easy and intuitive understandable way the resources of your phone’s battery. You can always know your battery percentage by checking the app. BatteryTime Lite displays how long you can talk, watch video or listen to the music, and surf web on your phone.

7. Do It (Tomorrow). A nice small task manager which lets you give yourself reminders for today, but makes it really easy to push things off to tomorrow! Party today, do tasks tomorrow!

8. Hippo Chub Live Wallpaper Free. My favorite wallpapers. A still night with twinkling stars, fairy magic, and a lovely small hippo watching the sky. Besides romantic, the app supports all screen sizes.

9. ChristmasOnes. It is a Christmas wallpaper and e-greetings editor. Christmas is not far off, so I already prepare gifts and best wishes for my family and friends. But I don’t like buying and signing paper cards, so this application is a real salvation for me. Now I spend my time with pleasure making wonderful virtual cards with Christmas trees.

10. Androidify. I love this app! It allows you to customizing the little green Android as yourself and to make your own Android portrait. Once you’ve personalized your Android, share it with your friends, set it as a photo in your contact book or just admire yourself! Thanks to Androidify I have now this cool self-portrait I put on the top of the post.

So, these are my favorite Android applications. I also use some standard pre-installed apps like Calendar for making my schedule and Alarm for waking up. And I want to say a big “Thanks!” to mobile software development companies for their wonderful ideas and making our lives more convenient and entertaining.
