The dearth of quality jewish apps for Android is shocking.
How is it that the Palm OS Luach and Siddur apps from over 10 years ago were light-years more advanced than the Android apps?
I think Androids problem with nekudot has something to do with it...

Still no excuse for why there's nothing like the Palm OS luach.  Definitely missing that app.

Webos has a Palm Os emulator, I wonder if one exists for Android (Google did not turn up anything).

I discovered a great app today called Chrome to Phone. You install it on your chrome browser on computer and put the app on your phone. If you're on a website or google maps on your computer and you want to pull up that website on your phone (classic case: In middle of reading something interesting and need to leave the house or you pulled up an address and want to pop it into your phones GPS) you click the button on your browser for Chrome to phone and your phone browser pops open to that site!!

Sorry, sorry!
Well, it was in the Chrome Extensions thread so I think it still deserves an appearance in the Android apps thread.

And even if it's old  (Jan 22, 2012 on the forums old) it's still a pretty exciting app!

Has anybody heard of an Android app that measures the mAH of the batteries charging and discharging rate like the good old Palm OS's Power Hero? Very useful when trying to figure out which charger charges at a faster rate or what apps use up more battery than others etc
