Droid Bionic: Find Apps at the Android Market

The most common and traditional things to hunt down at the Android Market are more apps for your Droid Bionic. Presently there are over 200,000 apps available at the Market. That’s good news. Better news: Most of the apps are free. Even the paid apps have “lite” versions you can try without having to pay.

  • Apps you download are added to the App menu, made available like any other app on your phone.

  • You can be assured that all apps that appear in the Market can be used on the Droid Bionic. There’s no way that you can download or buy something that’s incompatible with your phone.

  • Pay attention to an app’s ratings. Ratings are added by people who use the apps. Having more stars is better. You can see additional information, including individual user reviews, by choosing the app.

  • Another good indicator of an app’s success is how many times it’s been downloaded. Some apps have been downloaded more than 10 million times. That’s a good sign.

  • In addition to getting apps, you can download widgets for the Home screen as well as wallpapers for the Droid Bionic. Just search the Market for widget or live wallpaper.
