OPENTABLE

Need a reservation? Need reminders to go along with it? Need a little help picking where to make that reservation, maybe? OpenTable's got you covered in any of those cases, with a simple, easy-to-use Android app.

GMAIL

While this is another easy pick, there's no denying that the official Android app for Google's own webmail service is an excellent piece of software. It's intuitive, well-designed and functional, though you might be less lucky if you're trying to use non-Gmail email on your Android device.

STARBUCKS

Whether you're a huge Starbucks fan or someone who just needs a cup of coffee, the Starbucks Android app can come in handy. In addition to locating nearby stores, the app lets you pay using your Starbucks card balance and track rewards you've earned. *Does not actually dispense coffee.

IMDB

Admittedly, this is mostly good for those tip-of-the-tongue moments -- "Oh, I've seen this guy in a million movies, what the heck is his name?!" -- but it's incredibly satisfying to have this knowledge in your pocket. Oh, and it also provides movie times on the fly, which is convenient.
