15 killer apps for G1 Android

Google has finally released the entire source code of the Android operating system under the open-source Apache 2.0 license, this move described by TG Daily as "one of the largest open-source efforts ever in the history of open source." Making software developers from all levels to create apps for Android platform, a DIY (Do-It-Yourself) Android nickname is born. ;-)

"You can literally take that entire source code, put it on a piece of hardware, and you'd have a working phone," Google Android Product Manager Erick Tseng told eWeek yesterday. "You could not have done that before with just the SDK. Whether you're a carrier, an OEM or even just an application provider, you can partner up with a hardware manufacturer and make a phone."

This literally mean, there'll be more software devs to jump into the new bandwagon and join in the party. Android apps are flooding soon into the Market...

And so, while Android Market is enjoying the limelight, shared with Apple's App Store; owners of the new T-Mobile's G1 handset are also going to benefit from the increasing numbers of apps available in Android Market.

With that in mind, I think it's time to start posting up the most exciting Android apps for you to know. And it's already getting better; you'll get 15... not one, but 15 apps to check them out and see if they can be useful for your new G1 phone or not.

Tom Spring from PC World, has gathered around 15 'killer Android apps' (that's what he calls them ;-p) worthy of your time. In the list, include three apps that I've been watching for: Biowallet - to lock down your G1, CAllACab, and the famous BreadCrumbZ - leave behind a trail of pictures to follow.

Very recommendable, especially for those who wish to make the most of your newly bought G1 phone. Head on to the PC World page, to see more detailed info and screenshots for each apps. Happy hunting! ;-D
