In order to make things easier to navigate,I'm going to start a new topic each month like Jon does for, keeping your windmill alive and the joke threads. Free links are short lived anyway and will make Navigation short and sweet.
Do you know of a great Android App that is free?

3 Ways to Install Applications On Android Without The Market
Android is not like Windows where you *have* to have an anti-virus/anti-malware/mobile security app installed to stay safe; but if it helps put your mind at ease, there are plenty of reputable free anti-virus to pick from. We have listed the best ones for you here.
This a daily give away by Amazon, it only lasts free for 24 hours.
More than a simple alarm clock. Wake up gently and get your day started right.
Do you have problems turning off your alarm clock only to fall back asleep? Wake up gently and avoid accidentally disabling your alarm with Alarm Clock Xtreme. This alarm clock includes features that prevent excessive snoozing and get you out of bed. Alarm Clock Xtreme can even automatically disable itself when it detects that you're traveling to work or school (using GPS).
This highly customizable alarm clock will allow you to wake up in a way that works for you. Set your morning alarm to slowly increase in volume and wake you up gently. Use the extra large snooze button to prevent you from pressing dismiss accidentally, or force yourself to do math in order to snooze/dismiss the alarm. You can even have the snooze duration decrease in time after every snooze and set a maximum number of snoozes.
Features include: music alarm, random song alarm, gentle alarm volume ramp up, math to snooze/disable, shake to snooze/disable, nap alarm with countdown timer, auto-snooze, auto-dismiss and much more. Find the settings that help you get out of bed and start the day right.
-Do not install this app to the SD Card. The app will be unable to re-start automatically when the phone reboots or the SD Card is mounted/unmounted. This will cause you to miss alarms.
-Add this app to the ignore list in task killer applications on Android 2.1 and below.
-Phone must be on for alarms to work.
This app contains a set of tiny tools: a flashlight, a ruler, a timer, a stop watch, a compass and a bubble level.

Today's Free App of the Day from Amazon satisfies your need for challenging puzzles that test your logic and patience.
Each puzzle contains one or more static laser beams. Using mirrors or prisms, refract the colored laser to the circle of the same color. Various objects obstruct your path. The circle nor the source of the beam can be moved. The only way to manipulate the beam is by using the provided number of prisms and mirrors.
Depending on the color of the circle and laser, you may have to combine and split different colored lasers. This app uses pigment colors rather than light colors for refraction because pigment colors are an easier concept to grasp than light colors and accommodate the majority of users.
For example, if a puzzle has one yellow laser and one blue laser with one green circle and one yellow circle, you must combine lasers to create a green beam to reach the green circle.
Refraction features 120 levels with multiple solutions to each puzzle for the casual and hardcore players alike. You may like to solve a puzzle using the least amount of objects possible, or solve it with an amazing display of colors using lots of prisms and mirrors.
I downloaded it today, and it's quite good. Quite addicting, and quite challenging.
That was my plan when starting this thread. The Android market is growing very fast, with plenty of people that have never owned a PND now find themselves with GPS's and pocket computers.
With both new and experienced Android owners looking for links to free apps, where is a better place than the POI factory community to bring new GPS users?

Starting to see some of the maps apps coming out work with wifi only for the tablets.The internet showed Apple released one.Looking for Google Maps to improve theirs shortly.Right now as long as you don't get off the route using Google you are good to go.Be nice to hear form other tablet users what they are doing on wifi only tablets.Plus comments on best GPS apps they have found.

You can test the following:
*Device's sensors: accelerometer, gyroscope, compass...
*Wifi: internal & external IP, gateway, DHCP server...

*Multitouch screen: how many fingers recognize your device?

This app quickly displays a map in motion radar map of your location. I look for apps that make a difference in my life in that they save me from a large inconvenience.
For example, I was eating supper at the NorthEast Social in Minneapolis MN three weeks ago with my Son and his girlfriend. Shortly after we ordered a desert to share we heard thunder. I pulled out my phone and stared Radar Now. The display showed a larger thunder storm soon to arrive. We ate quickly, paid our bill, and started walking briskly to our car which was three blocks to his home. We make it to our car, and rained heavy as we drove away.
Without Radar Now would would not have known of the urgency, and probably would have got caught in the rain.
It's also great when traveling in the car to show the direction the storm is moving compared to the direction we are traveling.
What's that song? Identify it FAST with SoundHound.
You can ID songs blazing fast, search by sampling even singing, see lyrics, and browse artists to your heart's content. No monthly limits.
A fun little dice/strategy game. It's complete, with sound effects, high score tracking, a seriously good help system, and nice graphics. Performance is smooth and controls easy to manage. You have to use your strategy skills for lining up the dice to get the best scores, but chance is thrown in with each toss of the dice. As your scores add up, you gain Jokers, which will act like a wild. Certain combos get cleared from the board after being scored, others don't, all of which are detailed in the help section. It can be pretty addicting as well as fun. I wanted to take off half a star for lack of background music, but had to go with a full as halves aren't allowed.

For example, after setting the timer, you can press the "BACK" key to hide it and later on use the notification bar to bring it back.

It tells you the signal strength for wifi or cellular and it tells you which direction the tower is. I also thought that the fact that it tells you the name of the cell tower you're connected to was pretty cool.

It’s hurricane season, so I decided to take a close look at one of the many apps in the Android Market that provides information and news about current tropical storms and hurricanes.
Hurricane Hub is described in the Market description as “a comprehensive guide to hurricane season”, and to a degree the app hits on this claim. Essentially a front-end to web content covering storms, Hurricane Hub provides everything from satellite images, computer models, 3 and 5-day cone predictions, headline news and preparedness information. Hurricane Hub gathers great information on the web and puts it in a single, easy-to-use utility app. It’s great for those in the affected areas who need to stay up on the latest news, as well as just for those people who love to just track storms.
The app is broken down into 5 sections, each with an attractive set of icons color-coded to the section:
‘The Hub’ is the application home screen and is where you’ll find general information about latest headline news, eye witness reports, volunteer information, historic storm data, description of hurricane categories and more. The ‘latest news’ was up-to-date and retained news stories from many days back, which was nice. I also found the ‘historic storms’ and category descriptions interesting. And...
