Pictoreo leads Android Apps of the Week

Oct 11, 2012

We’ve got another great round-up of new and updated Android apps this week. Leading things off is Pictoreo which lets you create fun cinemagraphs from short videos you shoot with your Android device. We’ve also got a cool way to quickly launch apps and settings, a new video portal from AOL, an app which is perfect for fresh parents, and an alternative to Google’s navigation and mapping services which hit the market at the end of last week.

TomTom U.S. & Canada ($49.99)

While that price is certainly steep considering Google’s already very good bundled maps and navigation service that’s built within Android, TomTom now offers all the features of its standalone GPS navigation hardware/software within a single app, and you get free map and POI updates for life. You can choose the quickest route or use the advanced lane guidance feature to avoid tricky intersections. The app does require 2.3GB of storage space and isn’t yet compatible with a number of newer devices. If TomTom wants their app to take off, they’re really going to have to fix that!
