    Good list! While not a completely new app for Android, netMemo is the most recent addition to my list of useful productivity apps. It’s a nieched voice note recorder that let’s you record and send a voice note with only one click (it is then delivered to your e-mail inbox for later processng). Great if you use GTD!
