You may be a girl, but your Android is as necessary as a guy’s Swiss Army Knife.  The nerd factor surrounding smart phones and their apps makes it tricky to find those that are made just for girls, but they do exist!

Here are some girlie apps that will help you stay updated on fashion and entertainment news, keep you healthy, and more.

Shopping and entertainment

With the Android Market still lacking a presence from most major publications, Fashion News can give you your daily fix of the latest from the haute coture scene.  The free Android app brings you updates from several fashion sites and blogs, letting you add them to your favorites or share them with friends. The app is also a community, so you can leave comments of your own.

FourSquare’s free Android app has turned the act of being out and about into a game. Stay up with your favorite stores and brands, as you check into various locations, view recommendations and visited spots from those you follow. Bravo TV, for instance, combines its shows and personalities with the app.

Whether you’re looking for the best deal or simply want to share an item with your friend, the free Shopper app from Google can help. Scan bar codes or take photos of cover art to find other stores that carry the product. Voice search integration keeps you relatively hands-free, and a history tab keeps track of previous searches.

READ  Home Security Maximized with These Apps

Celebrity Gossip brings all your favorite news sources to your phone.  Read the latest from  OMG, Perez Hilton and more. View photos and popular stories, with options to read them in full via the original source site, all on the free Android app.

When you’re tired of shopping and reading gossip news, relax with a quick game of America’s Next Top Model.  The Android game app takes you from a fledgling model to a catwalk super star. Try the free version first, as the full $2.99 version doesn’t offer much more.

Health and fitness

Women’s Health is a useful resource, and is always at your fingertips. From cervical cancer to breast reconstructions, this free Android app breaks down information in an easily-accessible and organized manner. Though the app is quite basic, lacking keyword search or sharing options, it’s a quick guide for women-related health topics.

Yoga Trainer Pro is a handy companion to help keep you fit and toned. The free Android app provides information on various yoga methods and positions, ranging from the basic to the advanced. There are photos and videos to guide you through your training session, enabling you to go at your own pace.

The iPill Android app takes the stress out of trying to remember your birth control schedule. With specific reminders for various types of contraceptives, this Android app makes life a little simpler. From IUDs to the patch, you can set alarms, add a theme to your phone and track your cycle. At $2.99, this app is a personal companion.

My Honey Days can help track your period and set pill reminders too, but it also features alarms for your cycle, a journal, and more. The free Android app has a calendar for marking your mood, when you’ve been intimate, and your menstrual cycle. My Honey Days provides stats on all of the above, and has custom settings to provide more accurate tracking and projections.

BabyBump is great for expecting mothers, with a weekly progression guide to help you watch your baby grow. The $2.99 Android app comes with a kick counter, contraction tracker and weight and waist graphs. There’s a journal for taking notes, a belly photo tool, and sharing options to keep your loved ones in the loop.
