Apps of the Day: Tumblr, Onavo, and More

Every day we peruse the Android Market looking for the best, worst, interesting, and most unique apps in an effort to sift out a few gems. We call it Apps of the Day. We can’t guarantee that every app featured below is a real winner, but each is worth at least a quick look. It’s all in an effort to help you, our faithful readers, get the most out of your Android handsets. Read on to see what we found today!

Tumblr - Tumblr has completely revamped their Android application, launching today with a new look and several key improvements that should make updating your micro-blog from your smartphone easier than ever. Along with a new user interface catered to the software and hardware of Android devices, users can now manage multiple blogs with a single swipe, more easily share content from their phone, and scour their address book for additional tumblr friends to follow. The update offers an immensely improved experience over the old app. [Market]

Onavo Lite - While it doesn’t quite feature the data-shrinking power of the currently unavailable full version of Onavo’s services, Onavo Lite gives Android users a peek into the data consumption of their applications, allowing control over how apps use data and when they can use it. If an app unexpectedly turns into a data pig, Onavo’s got your back. We’re still waiting for the ability to reduce overall data consumption without reducing a phone’s workload, but for now that feature remains iPhone-only. [Market]

SnaPanda - Dictionary apps are pretty useful when you come across a word you don’t know the meaning of, but the trouble is they aren’t all that intuitive. Enter SnaPanda, a clever take on looking up words that mixes Google Goggles-esque text recognition with a dictionary, allowing you to literally tap a word on a book’s page and find the definition. Focus your phones camera on the area of text containing the word, tap the specific word, and let SnaPanda do the rest. [Market]

Rogers is rolling out their 4G LTE network, and one of the first devices that will test its speeds is the Samsung Galaxy S II LTE. The Galaxy S II LTE will feature several key upgrades over the its non-LTE brother, including an upgraded Xynos CPU pumping out 1.5GHz of dual core power, a 4.5-inch Super AMOLED Plus display, and built-in NFC technology. The move to a larger screen seems to be consistent with at least one or two versions of the Galaxy S II headed for carriers in the US. Rogers will launch the Galaxy S II LTE in the fall.

We finally have an answer to the biggest question surrounding Sprint’s Samsung Galaxy S II. Is it the Epic Touch 4G or Epic 4G Touch? I kid, I kid. The name is cleared up as part of a training site that has launched ahead of tonight’s official unveiling event, but we also get our first official rundown of how this phone will differ from its international variant. The device will indeed be known as the Epic 4G Touch, differing slightly from the Epic Touch 4G name most have assumed it would carry. The Galaxy S II will see its 4.3-inch screen grow to 4.52-inches of Super AMOLED Plus goodness, while the Exynos processor will retain its 1.2GHz speed.

All of the details on the Epic 4G Touch and the other carrier variants of the Galaxy S II will be known by the end of the night, and Phandroid will be live on the scene bringing you the details as they break.

Firefox Previewed for Honeycomb Tablets

If you’re looking for a great browsing experience on your Honeycomb tablet, you might need look no further than the upcoming release of Firefox. Taking advantage of the larger, widescreen display of Android 3.0 slates, the mobile browser has been designed to reconfigure its layout depending on orientation. Landscape mode provides tabbed browsing via a menu, while portrait mode produces thumbnail previews of tabs along the side of the screen. You can also look forward to a revamped “awesomebar.”

The new browser is still early in its development so there is no given timeframe for when it could be released. We’ll be waiting anxiously, however, as this browser looks to deliver in ways that its smartphone cousin has managed to fall a bit short.

If there is one thing that I’m always interested it, it’s new browsers for my tablet. I can honestly say that I’ve used nearly every available browser in the Market – both optimized for Honeycomb and not. While I currently switch between Dolphin for Pad and the stock browser, I’ve been longing for a Honeycomb optimized version of Firefox for some time. It looks the Mozilla Mobile team heard my quiet cries, as they showed off some of the features of the upcoming browser in an official blog post earlier today.
