"From nifty presentation tools to finding your car in the parking lot, third-party apps for Google's Android mobile platform will be on display at the search giant's annual Google I/O conference in San Francisco this week.

"While Apple's iPhone App Store leads the pack by a long shot with about 200,000 applications, the newer Android platform is making solid progress with more than 50,000 apps available.

The company said it's the only Web-based tool of this kind that doesn't require Flash or plugins."
