Top 10 App Downloads of the Week: Monday, August 16th, 2010

Midway through the month of August, and yet another shift in the Top 10 chart. A few apps that I’m frankly surprised are still on the list, some new entries. All in all, a good week for applications. As always, if you’ve tried any of the applications on this list, please share your thoughts/opinions with other readers in the comments.

And now, your Top 10 most downloaded applications for the week of August 16th, 2010.

10. Multicon Widget

Multicon Widget is a widget that allows you to put four icons in the same space as one icon on your homescreen. This allows for up to 64 apps/shortcuts on a single homescreen.

9. LauncherPro

LauncherPro is a application launcher replacement app for your phone. It’s been in the Top 10 list since we started this list several weeks ago.

This one I’d advise you against downloading. The developers over at TweetDeck posted that someone took their beta application and posted it on the Android market (I believe he even charged $1 for it). You should, however go over to TweetDeck’s blog site to install the official version of TweetDeck. Oh, and read about our first impressions of TweetDeck.

    I am so glad to see ATK not listed here.

  • http://Website Klaus
  • http://Website Chad

    This list isn’t very helpful, you shouldn’t include any apps that made the list the previous week.

    • http://Website Kash

      I’m gonna have to agree with Chad, this article is pointless if you include apps from previous weeks (unless they were updated).

      • http://Website cg

        You’re both missing the point though. This is the top 10 most downloaded apps, not the top 10 recommended apps. Anthony can’t choose what the 10 are goong to be. This is merely a statistical breakdown of what has been downloaded, nothing more. There is another posting started about the androidandme recommended download of the week. That may be more of what you’re looking for….

        • http://Website onthefritz

          Exactly… And I actually think it’s helpful to see apps on here multiple times. Because if they continue to top the charts, I should probably check it out if I haven’t already.

  • Nickedynick

    Now that Chrome to phone has been released, could you start posting market:// links for apps please?

    • Austin Pickett

      This would be a great idea.

    • anakin78z

      Multicon widget is pretty sweet.

      I’d love to see a list of top 10 paid apps for the week.

      • http://Website cg

        Top 10 paid app sales would be great. That may help boost sales more than the previously proposed pledge.

  • Peach

    Chrome to phone is rocking solid on my Hero. Great stuff!

  • Pretbek

    Chrome To Phone isn’t available in the Dutch Market, altough the 1.7-version can be downloaden (.apk-file) from the internet. :|

  • Kunal

    A worth reading list of apps.
    I did know vlingo is available for Android 2.1 as well. Got to know from this post.
    Thank you.
