Android has over 450,000 apps. With so many apps out there, app discovery (aka finding new and useful apps) is extremely difficult. With our Android Apps of the Day  initiative, dotTech aims to change that. Everyday we post three apps, allowing our readers to discover new apps, daily. Enjoy!

In the past dotTech has recommended MoboPlayer  as the best free video player app for Android. Wondershare recently released its Wondershare Player which may well be the best free video player app available on Play Store at this moment in time. Not only does Wondershare Player play all major video and DVD format files (“FLV, AVI, MKV, WMV, MOV, RM, RMVB, ASF, M2TS, MP3, WMA, AAC, FLAC, M2TS, VOB, F4V, 3GP, etc.” according to Wondershare, although obviously I couldn’t test all of these formats) but it also allows users to:
Other features of Wondershare Player include support of embedded subtitles in video files, ability to view HTTP, MMS, RTMP and RTSP/RTP streaming media protocols, and the ability to stream to Wondershare Player from a local server or PC.

PowerGIF is an app that allows users to create animated GIFs (you know the .GIF images that show as animated on your computer) using either your device’s camera or existing photos. If you opt to use your device’s camera, you can either do it is in video mode (in which case you take a video of up to 20 seconds which then gets converted to an animated GIF by PowerGIF) or in camera mode (in which case you manually snap up to 99 photos which are used to create an animated GIF by PowerGIF). If you want to use existing photos, you select the photos in the order that you want the photos to be animated (you can select up to 99). Regardless of which method you select, after an animated GIF is created you are shown a preview at which point you have the ability to edit the animated GIF (which involves removing individual pictures/frames from the GIF), save the GIF, share the GIF (via Facebook, Twitter, e-mail, messaging, etc.), give the GIF a colored border, modify the speed of the GIF, or make the GIF play backwards.

Panorama is an easy-to-use app that allows users to create panoramic photos (in landscape or portrait mode). With Panorama all you do is point your camera at the start of the panorama (the left side), tap the button that tells Panorama to start, then slowly move your device to the right. As you move your device to the right Panorama automatically snaps the required photos until it reaches the end of the panorama, after which the panorama is generated. (In total nine photos are snapped by Panorama for each panorama.) Once a panorama is created it is automatically saved on your device with you having the option to trash it or share it via Facebook, Twitter, email, messaging, etc.

dotTechies: We have tested all the apps listed above. However, Android Apps of the Day articles are not intended as “reviews” but rather as “heads-up” to help you discover new apps. Always use your best judgement when downloading apps, such as trying trial/free versions before purchasing paid apps, if applicable.
