Line Snob


Stop waiting. This app lets you know how long the line is at such points of interest as clubs, restaurants, and even Apple stores. You can also upload pics and info of your wait for the benefit of others, and possibly earn prizes—such as a trip to the front of the line from that business.

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

    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.
