Atheist Apps for Android

So, I’ve finally joined the 21st century by buying my first ever 3G smartphone, a Motorola Droid 2. I’ve been getting a lot of use out of it and I’m happy with the network coverage and connection speed so far. There’s also the Android Market, which lists thousands of user-developed applications you can download, everything from games and news readers to compasses and metal detectors (no kidding).

I do have one important complaint, though. There aren’t nearly enough atheist-themed apps!

The Market is aswarm with Christian apps: Bible references, daily devotional readings, Christian chat rooms and bulletin boards, phone wallpapers, streaming apps for Christian radio and TV stations, and so on. But atheist- and skeptic-friendly apps are few and far between. Just about the only ones I’ve found are a pocket debater’s guide from the anti-climate-change-denialist site Skeptical Science and an amusing quote database from FSTDT.

So, where are all the atheist app developers? Are they all iPhone users? Or do any readers know about ones I’ve somehow missed? We need some parity here!
