Doctor Who Android Apps

Doctor Who sonic screwdriver app on AndroidWhile you might be among the iPhone users taking advantage of the WhoNews iPhone app (see the banner above), Android users aren’t without their fun Doctor Who gizmos.

Top of the class comes this great Sonic Screwdriver app, which offers three variations on the Doctor’s multifunction lockpick/tricorder – those owned by Jon Pertwee’s Third Doctor, David Tennant’s popular Tenth Doctor and of course Matt Smith’s Eleventh Doctor.

With a zoom function, volume settings and intensity controlled by sliding your finger to extend or retract the device, it’s a great app that does little else but really satisfy the Whovian within! Even better, I’ve just discovered that the latest version features River Song’s screwdriver and a beta version of a Dalek gun!

Meanwhile, other notable Doctor Who apps for the Android mobile phone platform include a couple of soundboards, lots of mobile desktop wallpaper and even a couple of talking book previews.

Fantastically, these apps are all free – although spare a thought for the person flogging the Doctor Who theme tune for $99c.
