Amazon Appstore (for AT&T users)

AT&T Android users rejoice! Starting with Samsung's Infuse 4G, you can now download non-Android Market apps. That means you can finally get access to Amazon's amazing Appstore. Be sure to take advantage of the free paid app of the day.

TweetComb got a lot of buzz this week

TweetComb got a lot of buzz this week for being the first major Twitter app for Honeycomb tablets. You can organise your mentions, friends, and searches in columns, similar to Tweetdeck on your desktop. If you have a Honeycomb tablet and love to tweet, this is your best and only option.

HBO Go will let you keep up with your favourite HBO shows

If you're an HBO subscriber, this is a must. HBO Go will let you stream episodes of all your favourite HBO shows directly to your phone or tablet. Catch up on classics like the Sopranos or new favourites like True Blood.

Price: Free (but you need to be an HBO subscriber) in the Android Market

Spotify (for non-U.S. Android owners)

Spotify opened its app to non-paying users this week. That's huge because it will also let you sync you device to the desktop app, effectively eliminating any need to use iTunes to manage your music.

Google Docs will eliminate any need for a scanner

Google Docs for Android is almost exactly the same as the web-based mobile version. But the killer feature is that it lets you 'scan' documents by snapping a photo. The text is then imported into a new document that you can edit.

Price: Free from the Android Market

Zipcar finally made an app for Android

Just like the iPhone app, Zipcar for Android will let you rent a car close to your location and even unlock or beep the horn remotely. Welcome to the future.

Price: Free (but you need to be a Zipcar member) in the Android Market

Appolicious will find great apps for you

The Android Market can be tough to navigate. That's where Appolicious comes in. It helps you find popular and recommended Android apps and links you to their download sites. Connect with Facebook to find out the apps your friends are downloading. Easy!
