Android Apps Of The Week: MasterChef, Sonar, and More

By Leslie Horn on at

Hey Android. We didn't forget about you this week, big guy. So here we have another batch of the best Android apps, from one for your travels to another for your workout and much more.

GrooveRunner: Get off the couch and on the treadmill, you fat clown. Working out is easier with a little coaching like that, as well as an app like this that lets you track your workout on GPS, listen to music in an embedded player, and track your progress. Free


Sonar: This friend-finding app has been on iOS for more than a year, but it just launched on Android. It will dig into your social networks to find people you might know nearby. I've honestly only ever used it in airports, but I've never actually used it to meet up with someone because I feel kind of weird about that. Free


MasterChef: Fans of the TV show by the same name will be into this one—while you're watching episodes, it will give you trivia, polls, and bonus content to make your experience even better. Then you fall down the MasterChef rabbit hole. Goodbye. Free


Quora: If you could have any super power what would you have, and other questions you could use Quora to find the answers to. The service has existed for quite a while, and now it has an Android app. Free


Tripayo: This is kind of the ultimate travel app. Not only will it help you meet other people on your journey, it will let you book flights and hotels. If you're the type who prefers the backpack/hostel method, this is right up your alley. Free
