It was 2 months ago that I introduced a new segmented Android Apps review site for Otaku – Moedroid. Now, rapid-spreading Android phones in Japan has brought us another interesting review site, for Japanese female cellphone users, Androidoll [J].
“Android apps review site from the viewpoint of girls” is the catch they put in large on the top.
Another catch, “You need apps to be cute!”,
The site offers Android app generators, by which you can create your original Android apps – 1. your original movie player app (max 15 seconds), 2. your photo album app (max 15 photos) and 3. clock gadget app with your own photo.
Their apps ranking on today:
- earthquake alerter
- polygraph app
- ShootMe – screen capture by shaking handset
- app to display nail arts overlay on your finger
- QR Code Scanner
- Dolphin Browser HD
- Kaocho – easy typing Japanese emoticons
- Try On Accessories – display accessories over your photo
- twicca BETA – Twitter client
