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 [6] initiative, dotTech aims to change that. Everyday we post three apps, allowing our readers to discover new apps, daily. Enjoy!

Apps for May 16, 2012

KD Collage

[9]Creating a collage of photos on your computer is very easy. How about on Android? That is where KD Collage comes in. KD Collage is an app for Android that allows you to create picture collages using the images/photos stored on your Android device. There are over 50 collage templates you can use (broken down in groups of 2-4 photos, 5-9 photos, multiple photos, or single photo); and each collage, in addition to having your photos, can have a custom background, stamps, and text, plus the ability to change the aspect ratio and rotation of the collage and the ‘highlighting’ of the photos. Once you are happy with the collage you can save it, share it (via e-mail, messaging, etc.), or set it as wallpaper.

KD Collage comes in two versions. KD Collage Free is free but can only output540x360 resolution collages. KD Collage Pro is paid and can output 540×360, 1080×720, and 1620×1080 resolution collages.

App Cache Cleaner

[13]App Cache Cleaner is a no-frills, easy-to-use app that cleans the cache of apps. When you run App Cache Cleaner it scans your device for apps that have an existing cache and then displays the apps, with their cache sizes. You then have the ability to clear the cache of all the listed apps with one click. Oddly enough, there doesn’t appear to be a way to clear the cache of only specific apps — it is a all or nothing ordeal.

Some novelty features of App Cache Cleaner are the ability to automatically clear app caches when App Cache Cleaner is run; automatically clear app caches when App Cache Cleaner is exited; and automatically clear app caches every X hours.

App Cache Cleaner is free but ad-supported. App Cache Cleaner Pro is paid and ad-free.

Price: Free, $1.54

Version discovered: v1.1.3

Requires: Android 1.5 and up [14]
