This month’s top 10 Android apps comes courtesy of the guys over at Droidaphile, a great website dedicated to Android. Check out some of their favourite apps in the list below.
1) Solid Explorer
Solid Explorer is like most other file manager applications you find on the Play Store but the functionality and design sets this app above the rest. It has the usual root features that you’d come to expect now-a- days but it’s UI sets it above, for me. It’s themed in the ICS standard although other themes are available in the settings tab. This great manger also uses a pane view horizontally for copy and paste features which I think is pretty cool on a tablet say. Folders look nice and a very intuitive jump button takes you to frequently visited folders, kind of like a favourites….
Its still a beta version but the developer has been busy updating and tidying up.
An application for viewing pictures on the vastly popular Reddit. This app is awesome with great support from a well known and respected developer. A great place to find wallpapers to save on your device also includes a built in GIF player to watch those funny pictures of cats licking themselves or whatever and spam your social networks Its free on the market but you can donate inside, if you wish.

Check your SDCard and system (requires root) to see what’s eating up your valuable memory on the device. Seems solid enough from what i used of it. Thankfully my phone isn’t too full up yet but I’ll sure be keeping an eye out using this application.

The idea of installing a new calculator seems a bit strange when there is a basic one already on your phone. The problem is while it is enough for any simple sums you need to do it could be so much more. That is where Calculations 4.0 comes in. Not only does it provide a much needed facelift to the calculator it also brings in a few little extras that help to make it stand out from the crowd. Included along side you also get a Currency Converter, Measurement Converter, Mortgage Calculator and Tip Calculator. The Pro version is on sale for 63p which is 50% off the normal price at the moment.

There is nothing worse than finding out about a sale once it is over. At the moment the Play Store gives you no indication when any app may be on sale. Usually the only way to find out is to read the description or notice yourself that an app is indeed reduced. App Sales aims to be that fix for you. Here you can see what apps are currently on sale. Inside you have the option to decide the minimum discount to be displayed and how often the app notifies you about new sales.
9) Galaxy Pack
