GT Racing 2: The Real Car Exp review

Gameloft's GT Racing 2: The Real Car Exp is one of the most realistic racing experiences you can get in Android, free or not (it's free, with in-app purchases). It starts with super-realistic 3D renditions of actual cars and racing venues. Sensitive controls let you hone your driving skills and really push it. Yes, we crashed a lot at first, mostly by going too fast, but that's part of the fun.

Pros

Everything but the g's: GT Racing 2 has everything but g-forces and that new car smell. It's as close as many will come … Read more

Goodreads review

Goodreads for Android connects you to the Web's most active social network for book lovers, but lacks many of the features of the Web site. Even in its current form, however, it remains a worthwhile download for avid readers.

Pros

Packs the essential features of the Web site: With Goodreads for Android, you can browse through more than 12 million titles, add them to your library or reading list, rate them, check reviews, and share titles with your friends. As a mobile user, accessing these features through the app proves to be more convenient than using the Web site.… Read more

Coollector Movie Database review

Coollector Movie Database helps you keep track of the movies you've seen, the ones you want to see, and the ones you own. With a huge collection of movies and information, any movie buff could spend hours perusing this program and finding all kinds of interesting things to watch.

Pros

Rate for suggestions: When you first open the app, a "game" will pop up asking you to rate three random movies. As you rate each, a new one will appear, and if you get to the point that you haven't seen any of the movies displayed, … Read more

ePUB to PDF Converter review

ePUB to PDF Converter offers a no-frills tool to convert your ePUB files to PDF, whether you want to read them in a different format or want to make edits. While the software has some issues, and it's arguable whether it's worth the paid cost over some other free options, it works well in most regards.

Pros

Quick conversions: The conversion process between ePUB and PDF is relatively quick, allowing you to pull the information out of an ePUB you have on your computer or one you've purchased online and into a PDF relatively fast.

Not too … Read more

Kik Messenger for iOS review

Kik Messenger offers useful features not found in all messengers, like a Web browser and message statuses. You'll like its functionality but not the rather tedious account creation process.

Pros

Free but feature-rich: A cross-platform app, Kik Messenger offers all the chatting features you'd expect and allows you to share photos, sketches, and Web pages. Its smooth performance and small file size make it a good choice for older iPhones.

Message statuses: The app informs you whether a message has already been delivered (indicated by the letter D on top of a check mark) or read (R on … Read more

Ultimate ZIP Cracker review

Ultimate ZIP Cracker can help you recover password-protected files that you have forgotten the password for. All you have to do is tell the program as much as you know about the password you're trying to recover, and then let it do the rest.

Pros

Flexibility: This program works on ZIP, Word, and Excel files, and its straightforward interface walks you through the process of selecting the file and entering information about the password. The program also uses multiple methods as it attempts to crack the password, giving it a better chance of succeeding, overall.

Cons

Trial limits: The … Read more

DigiHUD Speedometer review

Combining a speed indicator with an odometer and compass, DigiHUD Speedometer can save you when your vehicle's speedometer stops working. This is a great app to have if you're often on the road.

Pros

Accurate and reliable: DigiHUD Speedometer worked as intended in our tests, providing an accurate speed measurement, as well as recording the average and the highest speed. Many other people who've tried this app found it just as accurate as we did, according to app reviews in the Google Play store.

Window mode: You can minimize the app to a small Window mode that … Read more

InstaSize review

InstaSize instantly resizes digital images so they can be posted without cropping on Instagram, but it does a lot more than that, like creating photo collages, applying filters, and adding layers, text, and borders. The latest release of Munkee's free app, InstaSize 2.3.1, runs in Android 2.2 and up.

Pros

Neat & clean: InstaSize's crisply rendered layout reflects Instagram's style and gives quick and easy access to features and settings.
