        The Dodol Launcher lets you customize your Android from a huge number of themes.
There are thousands of high-quality themes that have custom icon packs and unique graphics.
There are various skins for Dodol's widgets, including a memory cleaner, quick settings and a widget for adjusting Wi-Fi.
The maker promises your phone will become a piece of artwork itself with new wallpapers and icons.
        Hello SMS replaces your phone's messaging application. SMS, MMS and group messages funnel into a top notch messaging interface.
You'll get free unlimited international messaging to.
        Weather Underground is a perfect example of top end software functionality.
You get exhaustive current weather and forecast information.
Two things separate this app from anything on the iPhone. First, it lets you add a home screen widget providing detailed weather info updated on a configurable schedule. Second, the temperature and conditions icon are displayed in the notification bar. No matter what screen you're on, you can always see the weather.
        App Lock can protect a wide range of standard apps by requiring a password. This is on top of the standard PIN or passcode you may use to secure your Android device. This is the app if you want a second-level of security.
        You've heard of Siri, but Dragon Mobile Assistant might be better.
Google Now is great, but install Dragon for a better way to get answers. It can replace Google Now so it's always running and available. Swipe the bottom of your screen and you'll open Dragon instead of Google Now.
