E-books have increasingly replaced traditional books, not just for leisure but for business guides, training books, and media publications. With the apps for the Amazon Kindle or Barnes and Noble Nook on your Android device, you can access all of these e-books without the need to take a dedicated e-book reader everywhere. And, for those with dedicated Kindle's or Nooks, these apps can sync to make sure you are always at the point where you last stopped reading.

re: 10 Epic Android Apps
This is the most pathetic list of apps I have seen, really, a flashlight app? The use of Epic in this title is nothing short of insulting.

It is for advertizing every time you click a new page loads with ads they get credit for, itGs a way to make a dime and the content is just an agitator to get a cheap hit.

The number of apps grows by the minute, but more than half of downloads are quickly discarded. What are YOUR favorite apps? And what makes them your go-to apps?

No kidding! Got through the first 3 slides, waiting for each one to load, and decided it wasn't worth doing that 7 more times...

GateGuru? Why not just bring up flightaware.com on your browser? Look up flights, see maps of where the plane is, and even where the plane is that you be flying on for the next leg.

Sounds like the imdb app -- why bring up an app when the webpage is just as good?

re: 10 Epic Android Apps
Hmm, my phone was loaded with apps that covered all of these functions (other than the anti-virus/malware app), I've been doing all this stuff since day one when I brought my phone home, without downloading any additional apps. Any suggestions for apps that don't come pre-loaded onto every modern phone?
