Audible for Android

Audiobooks have been available on Kindle before, but using Audible on an Android device is much more satisfying. The interface the Kindle Fire mimics is the same as the interface on the Android Market, but if you like audio, Audible is the best store for purchasing audiobooks, as they’re available in a number of places and formats now. The Audible app lets you download any of the books you’ve previously purchased for local use on your Kindle Fire. The only catch with Audible is that you really have to sign up for a monthly plan for it to be affordable. Plans run about $15 and come with one free book each month.



ulu has been trying its best to mimic the Netflix model and have its app everywhere, but it hasn’t kept up well, which is why we were pleasantly surprised to see it appear on not only the Nook Tablet, but now the Kindle Fire as well. If you have a Hulu Plus subscription, you can watch all of your TV shows and movies on your Fire wherever you have a Wi-Fi connection. Fans will be happy to know that a few new shows, like Community, are now available on TVs and portable devices now too, so you may not get that annoying message saying that your Hulu Plus subscription isn’t so Plus after all.

Dinner Spinner

The Dinner Spinner is like Urbanspoon for eating in. Using a slot machine-like selector, it lets you choose what type of meal you want to eat (salad, drink, dessert, soup, etc.), how long you have to make it (20 minutes, over an hour, etc.), and what the central ingredient should be (lamb, pasta, fruit, etc). Enter that and it will parse its 40,000+ recipe database and suggest a whole bunch of recipes, ranked by popularity and relevance. Pick a recipe and you can read reviews of it and check out nutrition facts. It’s one of the best cooking apps we’ve seen.


Cut the Rope

Description: Following the winning Angry Birds formula of combining universally cute graphics with an addictive puzzle element, Cut the Rope has you attempting to collect stars as you feed the hungry baby monster “Om Nom” some candy. You do this by selectively cutting ropes with a swipe of your finger. The concept isn’t the winner here, it’s the level design. Even as Cut the Rope’s near endless number of levels get more difficult, the game always makes it incredibly easy to retry and never puts a time limit on you. This makes the game a somewhat stress-free experience.
