Carmageddon

Price: £1.49

The original PlayStation classic has made its long awaited debut on the Android platform and my word is it brilliant. Destroy as many cars as possible and collect points along the way. It’s completely over the top and violence is at a premium here.

Copy

Price: Free

Despite there being a large number of cloud storage accounts already, Copy benefits from being a very simple way of keeping your files in the cloud, without needing to go through a convoluted menu system. There’s free storage for new users and competitively priced storage packages if you need extra.

Guidebook

Price: Free

If you’re attending a new event, then Guidebook might be the perfect app for you. The app includes downloadable guides to some of the biggest events all around the world with new events being added on a daily basis. It’s also ideal if you need directions to a certain event.

Sound Search

Price: Free

Google’s own Sound Search is a direct competitor to the likes of SoundHound, but it’s less of an app and more of a widget instead. Through the app/widget you can identify any song played on your TV or computer that you don’t recognise and the Sound Search will automatically give you the details of it.

ReadItToMe Pro

Price: £1.79

ReadItToMe Pro reads out your incoming callers, SMS messages and various notifications you get sent to. It’s surprisingly accurate and you can also reply to any incoming messages with your voice. Best of all it even understands text speak for people who feel full words aren’t good enough.
