About Android Apps of the Day
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!

Apps for May 12, 2012
Looking for a new wallpaper? Mixed Wallpaper Pack is an app that contains dozens of wallpapers (of varying resolutions) for you to pick from. Once you find the wallpaper of your liking, you can set it as your wallpaper or save it to SD card. The best part is once you download and install Mixed Wallpaper Pack, you don’t need an active Internet connection to use it. The developer of Mixed Wallpaper Pack does not explicitly mention how many wallpapers the app contains; I stopped counting after thirty.

Have the urge to shorten URLs from your Android device? URL Shortener is an app that allows users to shorten URLs using either goo.gl, is.gd, j.mp, urlr.eu, ur.ly, to.ly, or tinyurl.com.

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.
