Best Android apps this week

Here's the kings of the app jungle, handpicked on our Android Market safari

Hailo £Free

Yes, we've seen cab ordering apps before, but Hailo looks like it might have a shot at the title here with its easy to use maps, countdown until the taxi arrives, cash and card payment options – and thousands of London Black Cabs already signed up.

Angry Cowboy £Free

You're an alcoholic cowboy who has to shoot down any drinks in the bar in case he gets back on the wagon, so to speak. Aim carefully so you don't massacre the food though, especially when you progress onto bombs – you still need to eat.

Garmin Fit 69p

If your Android phone is ANT+ enabled, you can use this tracking app as a hub for your speed, distance, route and calories stats from all your Garmin heart monitors and speed sensors. There's also automatic uploading to Garmin Connect.

Get it

Shadowgun £3.49

Gorgeous graphics will keep you coming back for more intergalactic bounty hunting action from the year 2350. With your Android assistant S.A.R.A by your side, there are also hacking mini-games to break up the boss battles.

Get it

This pretender to Twitter's micro-blogging crown wants you to follow topics, like photography or Apple, rather than people. The idea is that it makes it easier to avoid content you're not interested in. We're looking at you, all British reality TV.
