AppGarden is an app of apps: it includes lots of simple apps within it
Do you remember those classic games that were 100-in-1. Well, AppGarden is something like this but instead of games it's about apps. It merges lots of simple apps (that mostly perform one function) in a list. For instance, imagine that you need to record a short clip of audio: scroll down the list until "Audio recorder", set a name for your clip and tap on "start". That easy. Another case: imagine that you need a currency conversor, so here you are. Or even need to look up a holidays calendar in your country, so scroll down again until "Holidays", select your country and check it out.
This is just a slice of the cake: there are up to 50 different mini-apps that will save your a** (paid version includes even more). Timer, timezone information, urban dictionary, URL shortener, Weather info, Word of the day, Words that rhyme with..., random number, random password, Ohm's law calculations, mapping, dictionary... It's just insane the amount of features.
Instead of installing such an amount of apps on your device for perform simple actions, install just one: AppGarden.
We've to congratulate its developers (Fluffy Delusions) for introducing a new concept of app that eases user's life and free devices storage. High recommendable.

Updated weather to use Google weather as the previous API I was using will be discontinued next month. New weather you can simply enter a zipcode or just a city to get data.
This app really "does it all", from calculating BMI to conversions to looking for synonyms; really, ad infinitum... That is, if they all functioned properly. One problem I can see is battery usage. It could be better organized, with options to favorite just certain items within the categories. The biggest prob is some of the functions simply don't work. Beyond that, this app has tons of potenti
I opened Recipe of the Day. That work, but other things after that either pulled up the recipe info or nothing (a mostly blank screen). The stock quote did not come up, the recipe did.
Easy. Essential. Does the job just fine.
I've been a fan ever since I'm an Android user. It will always be on my app list even if I change my phone. Hope you provide other stuff for offline mode though. :)
Why are 2 New Years Day showing? One that says banks-not observed, the other saying banks-observed (which is it?)... Suggestions: zip code finder...pls add field for town too for ppl who know the town but need the towns zip code! Currently we can only add a zip code to get towns name....
It used to be an excellent app, but since the new update, I can't set my favourites as the default page, and I can't rearrange the order of the favourites. On a side note, I preferred the old design too :(
Thank you for all your contributions. I just got LG G2 and I am re-downloading your apps, you are truly brilliant! Apro.1nk
