  1. Here are some Android programs I use frequently, plus some of my favorite games. (Sorry if I duplicate some suggestions!)

    Apps:

    • Battery Widget Reborn (beta) (free, has a paid stable version). I like having the perma-notification, which I have set to show "empty at $TIME".
    • Google Chrome (free). Hey, it's a solid browser. Also recommended: ALL the Google apps, particularly Quickoffice.
    • Firefox (free). A little slow on older hardware, compared to Chrome, but still solid.
    • Fing (free). A neat set of networking tools. I fire this up a lot at home when I want to ssh into something, and can't remember each device's IP. (Why, yes. I am lazy.
    • Hacker's Keyboard (free). A quintessential keyboard if you regularly use your device as an ssh client.
    • K-9 Mail (free). An open-source mail client. Great if you don't like the stock e-mail app and don't rely on Gmail.
    • Retroarch (free). (Best with: MOGA, Wii Remote with Classic Controller) A great all-in-one emulation app.
    • Total Commander (free). If you're serious about file management, I can't recommend this app enough.

    Games:

    • Gunman Clive (paid). (Best with: Wii Remote or MOGA) It's a lightweight Mega Man! 20 levels of mostly-brown fun. :)
    • Osmos (paid, demo available). (Best with: just a tablet) A beautiful, zen-like puzzle game. Gets a bit actiony at times, but patience is always key.
    • Riptide GP 2 (paid, optional IAP) (best with: just a phone, or MOGA). I missed out on classics like WaveRacer 64, so this is the game that got me into water racers. Gets a bit level-grindy in difficulty. IAP for in-game currency, but I cleared the game without it.
    • Sonic 1, Sonic 2, and Sonic CD. (paid) (Best with: Wii Remote or MOGA). Brilliant ports of their source games; these all use Christian "Taxman" Whitehead's "Retro Engine". Sonic 2 has a "restored" Hidden Palace and smoother Special Stage.
    • Super Hexagon. (paid) (Best with: just a phone or tablet, or MOGA shoulder buttons) It's Super Hexagon.
      .
    • World of Goo (paid, demo available). (Best with: just a tablet) I find the game more enjoyable on a touchscreen.

    I'll edit this with additional favorites later.

  2. I have no idea what the intro source is, but it sounds nice and very final-dungeony (Ganondorf's Castle, anyone? :) ). I can almost picture Ganondorf playing this as Mario plows through Bowser's Castle, both villains sitting in wait for the plumber's arrival. Much of the mix works quite well, but the ending is a bit abrupt. Fix that, and this track'll be a winner to my ears. :)
