Top Android Apps [February 10, 2011]

Okay, here’s the stuff for Feb 10, 2011. You’re waiting for it, right?

Small ARTools

SMall ARTtoolsAlthough there hordes of paint applications in the android market, the Small ARTools clearly stands out from the lot. The paint concept for touch screen phone has been implemented so wonderfully that you have to give full credit to app for it, and that what makes it stand out from others of its ilk.

Small ARTools isn’t anything like other Photoshop sort-of apps on the market — in fact, it’s not meant to be and there is no genuine need to be — but it still got all necessary features with the interface, that looked sweet and smart to us. If you’re looking for an app that would let you draw easily, try Small ARatools now, it’s free, too. I like one of its features very much, that you hold an on-screen pencil or brush to draw rather than relying solely on your finger’s touch, nice.

Small ARTtools is a new and unique sketch and paint application specially designed for touch sensitive Android™ mobile devices.

It is precise, intuitive and easy to handle.
