Looking to finally upgrade to extra. I did some looking, and found several different practice test software packages for android. Some free, some outdated, and one that's $20. Any recommendations? I could do one of the online tests, but prefer an actual app that I can stop and come back to as time permits.

HamExam.org

If you have Wifi access this is the best place to go. I studied the flash cards and took sample tests on my Android phone.

I used "Amateur Radio Exams 1.0 Pro". $2.99 in the play store. It has the latest pool questions for Extra.
For those looking at this thread and interested in getting their tech, the free version will do...but go on and get your general. That little taste of HF phone you get on 10m will not be enough!

I used hamtestonline.com for tech and genera and it was great but just reviewed the test bank on qrz.com for the extra.

It's not an Android ap, but you can still study from you Android phone.

While being able to use the tests online are a great option, it'd be nice to have a specific app staged on the phone. This way, it'll still work in airplane mode, or where coverage is spotty or non-existant.

i used Ham Radio Study from Pillow Fight Games,  a free app with questions for Tech, General and Extra.  It's a great app and helped me pass.

I had looked at that.

"Description


Prepare for Amateur Radio examinations.
Includes full question pools:
* Technician (effective till 2014-06-30)
* General (effective July 1, 2011)
* Extra (effective till 2012-06-30)"

I ended up picking up Amateru Raido Exams 1.0 Pro. For $2.99, it's worth giving a shot.
