Android Homebrewing App Roundup!

I while back I did an Iphone/Ipad App Roundup and received some requests for a post on Android apps.  Ask and you shall receive!  The descriptions and evaluations here rely on official app description, Facebook comments and post comments as I do not have an Android.

There seem to be a lot of homebrew related Android apps.  I expect to receive more comments about apps that are available, good, bad, etc and I do plan to do a follow up post.
