ICS App Recommendations?

Posted May 25, 2012 at 7:46 am in Threads > Apps & Games

As of yesterday, my Galaxy Note was officially updated to ICS. (4.0.3) So I was wondering, what are your favorite ICS specific apps, and features? Previously I owned a Galaxy Nexus, and a Nexus S, so ICS isn’t all that new to me. It just seems like a different experience after being on Gingerbread for so long.

The first two apps I downloaded were Chrome, and Apex Launcher. I know there has to be some unknown gems that people are enjoying, so tell me, what’s your favorite?

    Everyone seems to like chrome browser. I’ve tried it and it’s good.

      Chrome is definitely the best browser right now, I love it.

        I lived with chrome for almost a month, and was very dismissive of all the comments about its buggyness, in the end I admitted defeat and I’m back with the old faithful Dolphin HD.

        This is not to say chrome is bad, it’s just not ready for me yet. It will be soon tho.

      In terms of speed and scrolling, nothing beats stock ICS browser. Chrome has very good integration with desktop though.

        I used Chrome on mobile and desktop until on my Gnex it stopped showing mobiles sites. I have no idea why either.

    For me:

    1) Nova Launcher (although if you’re happy with Apex Launcher, stick with it if you want – they’re both good)
    2) Chrome
    3) One More Clock Widget (not ICS-specific but a new one for me)
    4) Solid Explorer (forget if it’s ICS-specific or not)

      Downloaded Solid Explorer and have been really enjoying it. I’ll have to give Nova a try, it seems like Apex is giving several people problems with ICS on the Note. Several times I’m stuck with a black screen, it’s having issues redrawing the screen, so all I can do is what for it to force close before I can do anything.
