15+ Best Android Apps we’ll miss because Google pulled them

Music Download & Music Streaming Android Apps
Grooveshark streaming music service was ousted by Google but it was no sweat for them, now you can download it from their website. Music streamers ultimately won’t get to “pass go” if they’re not licensed by the music industry… why we’re still waiting on Spotify in the States.
MP3 downloaders are like mosquitoes in the summer, as Google swat them from the Market more just rename and pop back up again. Some of the best we’ve seen were MP3 Music Download and Music Downloader Pro.
YouTube Video Downloaders & YouTube Music Streamers
This one was a throwback claimed to be create by a twelve-year old kid, but YouTube Downloader had a good run but short demise. As the title states, its capability could download and save videos directly to your phone from YouTube.
Even popular mobile browser Dolphin Browser HD almost caught the ax, it once had a Youtube downloader feature, that is… until Google asked them to remove it or else.
Umusic was a unique one that lasted all of one day after our review. That and the fact that Michael Arrington of TechCrunch said it was his favorite music app. Following its footsteps in features is a cool new app GhostTown, which allows you to stream YouTube videos as music, even better it organizes them as albums. So using the power of YouTube, you can listen to an entire album without [cough] purchasing.
Game Emulators Android Apps
Coincidence that when the Xperia Play debuted popular emulator games were yanked, all of them: Nesoid, SNesoid, Gensoid, GameBoid, GBCoid, Gearoid, Ataroid, and N64oid. Luckily you can snag them all from third-party Android market SlideMe. BTW, the popular psx4droid was in that list too. The developer is still actively making revisions which can be found here.
Free Movie & TV Show Stream Android Apps
So Android apps were just too good of a deal… a one-time fee to watch full movies and TV shows on your phone and ditch the subscription fees. Our favs Movies Stream and TV Shows Stream had to bite the dust.
