What?!? No Lightsabre App for Android! Oh Yes There Is.

Apple broke new ground with their iPhone app store. Suddenly the "there's an app for that..." wasn't just a slogan it became a selling point for people deciding if an iPhone was for them. BlackBerry has their app store (I tried it on my Curve and I'm not a fan), but I see Android-based phones as the real competitor to the iPhone. There is an Android app store, not locked down like Apple's is, but it seems that Android apps aren't getting as much attention as iPhone (or even BlackBerry) apps are.

 

Hmm.

 

Mashable has their list of 7 Mind-blowing app—7 Mind-Blowing Free Android Apps—which made me wonder if the distributed nature of Android app stores was hurting adoption. I have to admit that I was wondering that if I got an Android-based phone would I be able to find cool (maybe cooler) apps like all my friends who have iPhones.

I don't think I have to worry anymore.

 

There is a lightsabre app.

 

That's all I need.
