DoubleTwist
REVIEW

DoubleTwist ( Android)

DoubleTwist is the best music player we've seen on Android. And with the premium AirSync upgrade (highly recommended), it makes it a snap to sync and transfer music between your mobile device and your desktop.

Navfree USA is about as basic as navigation apps get, but its ability to store local map data, its frequent updates, and the fact that it's free make it an invaluable tool for Android navigation.
