Friday is Apps Day at At the end of each week, we take a look at the press releases, review requests, tips, and many visits spent to the Android Market while watching trashy TV reality shows, all in the name of finding some interesting apps to recommend to our readers each week. Android Apps Alert is all about digging through the Android Market to find what you need, so take a look below and see what you want to load on your phone.

Let’s Golf! 3 HD

Android 2.2+ required
815 MB required for additional download

Our friends at Gameloft, known for making excellent games that it refused to put in the Android Market until a few months ago, have hit us with another high-quality title. Let’s Golf! 3 HD is now available in the Android Market, and it’s free! Let’s Golf is a 3D game in which players user on-screen controls to angle their shot, apply the right amount of force with the power meter, and place the golf ball close to the green. The surroundings are interesting, and there are six locations to test your skills. The game also includes:
- Multiplayer on Wi-Fi or Bluetooth (or the same device) with up to 4 people
- In-game chat and challenges between friends online
- Avatar creation to make the golfer look like you
- Special challenge modes to change things up.

Like most Gameloft games, we’d like to remind you that it is not compatible with all devices. Some features require money, and you will need to clear 815MB of microSD space to load all of the associated files required to play the game.
