I wonder what portion of Android users use such atypical apps. Any out there care to weigh in?
I have a TV listing and reminders app (TV Show favs)
that's about it as far as "Atypical" apps go...the rest are native apps for social sites (twitter, facebook, google +, myspace - just kidding about myspace)
maps, a subway listing app, an audio manager, file/photo hider app (very useful), 3 file managers (1 that comes with MIUI, one that has root access, and another that I hardly use but I use to back in my G1, Nexus One days so it's more nostalgic...plus it allows me to edit zip files without extracting them)
IMDb, ReadItLater, Engadget, XDA, Pulse News Reader
8 games (3 angry birds, Shadowgun, MC2, Nova 2, WordsWF, and a game called Project INF a top down team deathmatch/CTF game that is noticeably outdated)
A banking app, A backup app, a barcode scanner
3 different cameras not counting stock, and a photo editor and video player
A translate app, a craigslist app, and thats about it really.
