Android is the mobile operating system that won over many fans. And this because it is very attractive, intuitive and offers more than 200,000 applications. But, as nothing is perfect in this world, the Android operating system on your tablet or smartphone can also be improved.
We are not talking about methods that will transform you into programmers overnight, but about replacing default applications with some that increase the performance of your device and makes your Android experience more pleasant.
If you are not happy with the default Android web browser then you can use some of the alternatives. Dolphin HD, Opera Mobile and Firefox are just a few.
Dolphin HD is the most advanced Android web browser and will 100% change your Internet experience. The web browser, which is free, brings gesture navigation and it supports Flash ( on compatible devices ).
If you haven’t used Opera Mobile on your Android device then you might think about giving it a try. For a long time now Opera started to focus on the mobile market.
It is very easy to use, it has plenty of features which will help you if you are using a small screen and it is easy on the resources, unlike Dolphin HD.
It is one of the most popular web browsers for PC’s and it also has a mobile version. Firefox for Android is the perfect choice for people who think that Dolphin HD is too “heavy” and Opera does not offer everything they need.
Firefox for Android allows you to sync with your PC and it renders websites very well.
Because not all email accounts work without problems on the Android default mail client, K-9 Mail seems to be the best alternative you can find in the Android Marketplace.
It offers file attachment management, SD card sync, POP3 and IMAP support, notifications and multiple accounts.
Camnera Zoom FX
Although it is not free ( $4,88 ), Camera Zoom FX fills the void of the preinstalled Android camera application.
The camera offers filters, digital zoom, timer, geo-tagging and even image stabilizer.
Handcent SMS is the most popular texting application in the Android Marketplace.
Probably this is very familiar to you. The Winamp for Android is a real success because it can connect to many cloud music libraries.
MX Video Player
MX Video Player is probably the ideal solution to get rid of the video formats problems of the videos you want to view.
