Android apps: 9 best, free social networking choices

Share, save and savor all things social with these nine free Google Android apps, hand-picked by CIO.com's mobile maestro, Al Sacco.

Untappd

You've heard of Twitter and Facebook, where you post the mundane details of daily life online. You've seen Foursquare, which lets you share your location with others. But you may not have been introduced to one of the latest social networking crazes, Untappd, a mobile-based service for beer drinkers to share and discuss their various brews of choice. Find new beers and breweries, connect with other likeminded drinkers and earn tons of creative badges for your troubles. You'll never drink alone again. Cheers. (Note: Untappd is a browser-based Web app, and it works on iOS, BlackBerry and other mobile platforms, as well.)

Visit m.untappd.com and use your Android settings menu to create an Untappd home screen shortcut.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
