Recommended Application

Casey Rendon – Quickoffice

When Google made their Quickoffice app free last month, and threw in a free 10 GB of Google Drive storage just for installing it, I had to give it a go. It was great timing too, since school just started, and my need to view Word, Powerpoint, and Excel documents had just gone way up. Mobile viewing of Office documents in general is still not perfect, so I have multiple document viewers on my phone and tablet in case I run into any compatibility issues. After rotating through a few of them (including the official Microsoft Office 365 app), I keep coming back to Quickoffice. When a font is missing or an image is not displayed when using other apps, Quickoffice usually picks up the slack. Great compatibility and a true Android layout (along with being free) makes this my Office app of choice.

Jerry Hildenbrand – VidTrim

The video editing app that comes with some devices – both a Google flavor and different OEMs – is something that I would rarely use. But when I did use it, it was to cut or trim down a video before sending it off to someone else. Since MotoGoogle didn't include on on the Moto X, I had to look for a substitute. I'm liking VidTrim. The free version does a great job of trimming and transcoding a video into a different size (1080p is only available in the pro version) and it's quick and easy to use. It doesn' have a full feature set if you want to actually edit a video, but for anything I would try on a phone, it's done exactly what I needed it to do. Give the free version a shot if you need an app to do some simple work on your videos.

Chris Parsons – Time Surfer

Having grabbed the latest Humble Mobile Bundle, I came across Time Surfer as part of the purchase and I have to say it's quite a fun little game with the soundtrack alone being worth the cost of entry. Take Sonic the Hedgehog, Jetpack Joyride and add in some crazy music and glorious visuals and you have Time Surfer. It's ultimately a great endless runner for the masses. You can grab it in the Humble Bundle for the next 3 days or on the cheap from Google Play with it coming in at less than a buck.

Andrew Martonik – Watch ABC

Those of us who don't have a cable subscription (or would prefer not to have one) have to jump through various hoops to get our television content. Just like many other channels, ABC is trying its hand at offering on-demand programming through an app on Android (and iOS) called Watch ABC. The app offers access to on-demand programming from dozens of its shows, as well as live TV if you're in a market where they have a deal with the TV providers. Now the first thing you' probably notice is a somewhat low rating in Google Play, and I'll admit there are a few bugs at play here, but if you want to have access to ABC programming on your phone or tablet this is a good way to go. Pair this up with other offerings from Hulu, Netflix and the like, and you can have access to many of your favorite shows.
