I’m sure I’m not the only one who’s run out of apps space already. We had to have covered nearly 100 apps by no- oh, wait, nevermind. Apps to SD support was added to Android a long time ago. Rejoice! You shouldn’t have any trouble fitting today’s apps of the day on to your device. Unless you have a T-Mobile Comet or some other cheap phone with 256KB of internal storage.

Remote Ringer – Ever lost your phone, tried calling from another number to help you track it down, and realize it is set on silent? Remote Ringer alleviates the problem. Just text your phone a code from an assigned phone number and magically your ringer is set to full blast. Then call away, moving closer to the missing Android with every beat of your Lady GaGa ringtone. [Market]

Minimal Reader Pro – This is probably the most elegant and simple RSS reader you’re going to find. Minimal Reader Pro is a widget that interfaces with Google Reader and feeds you news items in a very simplistic way. It’s a widget and it won’t be very useful if you’re a power use, but if your Google Reader account is light on feeds and you just need something easy and quick to check every now and then, I can’t see any better option.

What’s My Name – Yea, it’s been about 22 years and I’m still bad with names. I don’t exactly have a photographic memory so if I need to meet a bunch of new people in a short amount of time (read: the countless conventions we have to go to), I’ll want this app at my disposal. It shows you a face and throws five random names out with it. Choose the right one and, well, you’ll know that’s their name. You won’t get a parade, but at least you won’t look foolish the next time you meet that person and have no clue what their names were. [Market]
