By Leslie Horn on at

We're got all different kinds of titles for you in this round of the week's best Android apps. From one that will help you settle on dinner, to another that will tell you when you need your umbrella, you'll be all ready for the weekend.

Beat Bang: Learn a little bit about electronic. Beat Bang will give you samples from 25 years of the genre, as well as facts about the artists and links for where to buy their tracks. Free


Zagat: Now that Google owns Zagat, its restaurant know-how is totally free. Read reviews about where to get the best steak in town, and then turn around and be the critic yourself in entries from more than 30,000 eateries from around the world. Free

Devil's Attorney: Ever wanted to know what it's like to be Casey Anthony's lawyer? Probably not because that would make you a horrible person. But if you do, you can play this game which makes you the attorney of a morally repugnant client who you're responsible with defending. £2.33

Future Mayhem: It's the the year 2842, and organised crime has overtaken the city. You're the chief enforcer of one of the most powerful gangs, and you're responsible with making sure things don't get out of hand. Organise campaigns to keep things under control in this crazy shoot 'em up arcade game. £0.65

Lookout Security & Antivirus: If you've recently sunk some of your hard-earned cash into a hot new Android phone, you're going to want to make sure it's as secure as can be. Lookout Mobile Security's redesigned app will help make sure nothing untoward happens, with an easy-to-read activity feed that lets you know what evils its keeping away. Even if your phone gets stolen, the app will mark the phone's last-known position before the battery dies, so you can track it down faster. Free
