81 Free Apps That Don’t Suck


Amazon Mobile

(Android, iPhone, BlackBerry, Symbian, webOS)

Put all of Amazon in the palm of your hand, including wishlists, one-click ordering, and order history. Plus, Amazon recently added Remembers, which lets you take a picture of anything and save it to your online account. Amazon will locate a matching product page, where you can buy the product or save it to your wishlist.


Card Star

(Android, BlackBerry, iPhone)

Simplify your key ring full of club cards. Card Star stores grocery and reward cards in barcode format right on your phone. When you reach the checkout counter, simply launch the app, access the right card, and scan to get the discount.


Grocery iQ

(Android, iPhone)

Grocery iQ keeps your shopping list at your fingertips. Organized by store, it creates specific lists for the stores you frequent, then checks off items as you toss them in the cart. The app even groups products automatically by predefined general aisles, such as Breakfast & Cereal, to help you speed through the store. Clicking Checkout on the app clears the list and saves it for next time. It’s a quick and easy way to stay organized and on budget.



(Android, iPhone)

Famous for serving up great daily deals on fun local experiences—such as half-price dinner cruises—the Groupon app works like the website in 150 cities around the world. You can share a Group via e-mail, Facebook, or Twitter, as well as view previously purchased Groupons to find others nearby.



(Android, BlackBerry, iPhone)

Use your location to find coupons from major chains such as Bath & Body Works, Children’s Place, Famous Footwear, and Office Depot in your area. This app sorts deals alphabetically or geographically. Then, show the cashier your coupon at checkout to save. MobiQpons can even add up your coupon savings to help keep your budget in check.



(Android, BlackBerry, iPhone)

Like MobiQpons, this app offers a great-looking interface for finding deals based on your location. Shooger groups deals by category, then displays the number available. Follow your favorite stores, such as Wal-Mart, and virtually clip coupons to quickly access them before checkout.



(Android, BlackBerry, iPhone, Symbian, Windows Phone)

Be certain you’re getting the best deal possible. Just scan a product’s barcode with ShopSavvy to check prices online and at local retailers. The app will tell you (for some stores) if the product is currently in stock, and provide directions to the correct location. Plus, you can create wishlists to send to friends and family.



(Android, iPhone)

Wondering if that flick is any good? Take a picture of the jacket cover with your smart phone and send it to SnapTell. The app will let you read reviews and get local and online prices. It works with books, CDs, DVDs, and video games, and it’s easy to search by barcode or product name.

    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.
