Android: If you have a stand-alone dictionary app, calculator app, tipping app, unit conversion app and a dozen other apps designed for very specific purposes, AppGarden is a new super-app that wants to replace them all without sacrificing their features. The app is a collection of mini-apps that can do everything from bandwidth monitoring to unit conversion to stock quotes and URL shortening, all under the umbrella of one installation.
AppGarden needs a lot of permissions, but that's not unexpected when you look at the list of mini-apps built into it. One tap gets you access to features that you may have needed dozens of other apps to do, including a three-source dictionary, thesaurus, urban dictionary lookup, local weather and local time-zone information, Wikipedia lookup, random number and password generators, a stopwatch and much more. The best part of the tool is that because it does so much, you can clean up the other apps you may have installed that do the same things.
XDA-Developers forum member plbelanger built AppGarden. The app is completely free (but ad-supported) and available now in the Android Market. You can get the "pro" version to remove the in-app ads for $1.85. Would you try a single app to replace the half-dozen apps you may have installed, or do you prefer individual apps for discrete purposes? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
