Recommendations

The following (incomplete) list contains lots and lots of stuff that I like and that I want to let other people now about. This includes all types of software, comics, movies and much more.

Android Apps
Title Description
Gentle Alarm 

"An alarm clock shouldn't shell-shock you out of your dreams." says the author of Gentle Alarm which attempts to wake the Android phone owner during light sleep. Doing so is supposed to make one feel a lot more relaxed which also makes it less likely to hit the snooze button in panic.

IRC for Android 

IRC for Android™ is a multi-server IRC client for Android. Some of the features I particularly like are the ignore list, multi-charset support, SASL support and UTF-8 detection.

K-9 Mail is an open-source e-mail client with search, IMAP push email, multi-folder sync, flagging, filing, signatures, bcc-self, PGP, mail on SD & more! It supports IMAP, POP3 and Exchange 2003/2007 (with WebDAV).

KeePassDroid 

KeePassDroid is pretty much the Android version of KeePass Password Safe and as such - while not sharing all of the desktop version's features - makes for a fine password manager for mobile devices. It generates two Android notifications which - when touched - will copy login or password to the Android clipboard so they can be pasted in pretty much any app or website login form.

SwiftKey Keyboard 

SwiftKey makes touchscreen typing faster, easier and more personalized by combining auto-correction, word prediction and swipe input into one of the most popular Android keyboard apps. Cloud storage of your learned typing behavior is optional.

Tasker 

Tasker is probably the solution for automation on the Android platform. It allows the Android user to define triggers which will cause one or more actions to be performed. A possible scenario would be setting your ringer volume to zero once your phone finds the company WiFi network nearby.

Several hundred actions are built-in and even more can be added using plug-ins.

UI Shopping list 

OI Shopping List makes it easy to create and manage checklists. One can easily add items to a list, check the item off, and remove it from the list. The application can track separate prices for each store, and features a high level of customization. Font size, sort order, list columns, and list cleanup behavior are all settings controlled by the user. All of these features are brought together in a crisp layout that is customizable through a variety of themes.

After losing his memory to a mysterious battle, Trace Legacy, a former leader for an organization of mages called the Templar, finds himself in the company of Flora, a girl of strange, tiger-like qualities.

As friendship confects with racial differences, Trace and Flora find themselves in a situation more critical than either of them can imagine.
