    Communication, try Tango. It’s free and works between Android and iPhone.

  2. Stefan Says:

    And what about feed readers (RSS)?

    Is there anything for the android platform that matches akregator in terms of functionality?

  3. K. T. Bradford Says:

    I use NewsRob on Android for RSS feeds. It syncs with Google Reader, so I can manage subscriptions from my computer and the changes go to my phone.

  4. Jesika Says:

    WTF its only three apps? why does it say 81 if its only three?

  5. K. T. Bradford Says:

    Look at the bottom of the post, the other app categories are listed there. We thought 81 apps all on one page would be a bit much.
