The best Android apps of 2017

With millions of apps in the Play Store, searching for the best Android apps is daunting. Whether you need a great weather app or a new browser, there are always dozens available. Here at AndroidPIT, we’ve spent hours curating the top Android apps for every purpose, and compiled only the best of them into one list. Here are the best Android apps of 2017.

I am more interested in the code of this page than in the article.

Best messenger apps for Android

Studies have shown that smartphone users message each other back and forth much more than they make calls. Users need a good messenger app. It's a big choice, so here are two of our favorites.

WhatsApp

WhatsApp, the ubiquitous chat app, has been installed on over one billion smartphones. And it's always improving user experience, adding new features and becoming more secure. What makes it number one? Everyone uses it, simple as that. If you already use WhatsApp, then you should check out our favorite WhatsApp tips and tricks.

Telegram

No messaging app comes close to the number of users WhatsApp has, but there are some great alternatives out there. Telegram is one of them. The free app has end-to-end encryption, does group chats and is a pioneer of chatbots. Unlike some other messengers, you can use it on multiple devices. Read our full review of Telegram.

Best file manager apps for Android

Solid Explorer

In light of the turn ES File Explorer has taken, we've tested out a few alternatives in search of a replacement. One app we've settled on is Solid Explorer. It's feature-rich and highly accessible thanks to a crisp Material Design UI. It also houses a very handy double-panel display that lets you navigate to two separate folders and drag a file across from one to the other. Integration with cloud services like Google Drive, Dropbox and OneDrive, as well as FTP servers, make it a formidable all-in-one solution for managing your files.

Some of its other features include hidden folders, ZIP and RAR archive extraction, and customization through icons, color schemes and themes. The app is free to try out for two weeks, and then you have the option to pay $2, so you've nothing to lose by trying it out and seeing what you think.

Amaze File Manager

The Amaze File Manager is free and easy it use. It has all the basic features you'd expect: quick access to files, deleting, copying, moving, etc. Unfortunately, you can't access data on your MicroSD card through the drop down menu, you must use the file tree. Amaze doesn't support cloud storage.

When looking in individual folders, you can toggle between list and table view. Amaze can create thumbnails for many file formats, but not for PDFs.

Best keyboard apps for Android

Fleksy

This keyboard is one of the best for fast, accurate typing and it’s our new company favorite. Many of us have adopted Fleksy because it’s big, it’s clever and once you use it for a couple of hours, you realize how useful some of the smaller details are.

For example, most keyboards use a "press and hold delete key" gesture to delete words, Fleksy uses a super-quick backward swipe. Be sure check out some of the extensions like invisible keyboard too — it works surprisingly well. Download it from the Play Store for free now.

SwiftKey

Whoever is looking for a very special virtual keyboard for Android will find one here. SwiftKey works wonderfully with tablets, and if you simply want a good Android keyboard, it offers intuitive operation, very good spell check and word recognition.

Best weather apps for Android

Morecast

There are plenty of weather apps available that are more accurate and better looking than the ones that come pre-installed on your Android device. 

MORECAST is our current favorite weather app here at AndroidPIT because it has one of the best-looking interfaces, with a clear and sensible layout. It's also one of the most advanced apps of its kind, featuring such options as side-by-side weather comparisons for two cities, and accurate weather information for a particular route or journey. MORECAST is the right way to make a smartphone weather app, and best of all, it's free.

Best GPS and navigation apps for Android

HERE Maps

Apart from the obvious Google Maps, this is one of the very best. HERE is Nokia's own map app, which it used on its devices once upon a time. It provides everything you'd expect, including turn-by-turn navigation, search and satellite imagery, but the main draw is its offline feature. You can download maps of entire countries and use them almost exactly as you would online, without wasting precious MBs.

This is really an indispensable app if you travel a lot or frequently find your data usage going over the limit. The only downside is that you have to register to download maps, but it's totally free, and once you've done it, you can go nuts and download the world.

Best image-editing apps for Android

PhotoDirector

PhotoDirector is the whole package. It has everything you could possibly need to edit your photos. The tools range from simple text bubbles and filters, to more complex things such as HSL and curves, and they're all heavily adjustable, helping you get the best out of your photos. It's for messing around on and seeing what you end up with.

The app is developed by CyberLink, a large Taiwanese multimedia software company, so they have the money to splash on an app, and it shows. Highly recommended for novices and pros-on-the-go alike.

Best apps for music, movies and TV

Watching TV and movies

Hulu is an excellent app for watching movies and TV shows on Android. It's a free service that relies on ads, but there are some great shows available. You need to pay a subscription fee to access all of the content, but there is a range of excellent shows available without subscription, including classic US comedies such as Family Guy, Seinfeld and South Park. 

It's currently restricted to the US, but hopefully we'll see Hulu appearing in more territories soon.

Downloading free music

Google Play Music is our favorite app for downloading free music right now. Though there are many music download apps available in the Play Store, they are often quickly removed because of their copyright-impinging functionality. Google Play Music provides you with a totally legit, ever-changing list of free tracks from major artists to download.

Spotify has an excellent paid subscription service, and SoundCloud has a multitude of tracks readily available to stream, but for actually downloading tracks to your phone, Google Play Music is as good as you can get. 

Alternatively, head to the link below for some less common free music downloading apps.

Best music player

The Walkman and the iPod are as good as dead, because our smartphones have taken over as powerful music players. While the default music apps on your Android device probably do a fine job, if you want to crank up the bass or other aspects of your music, you'll need something more.

One of the best music player apps for Android is Poweramp. It’s a great way to enjoy your favorite music, with a ton of options and support for almost any type of file. You can’t go wrong with Poweramp.

With themes galore, Poweramp can be whatever you want it to be. Just grab a new skin ASAP. / © AndroidPIT

Best productivity apps for Android

Password manager

Manually typing passwords takes a lot of time and remembering them all is difficult. Everybody has forgotten a password or two at some point in their lives. Enter Dashlane, the app which saves all of them so you can easily copy and paste these into online forms when necessary. 

A common concern with password manager apps is whether you can trust their security service. Dashlane uses encrypted codes and regularly monitors them to ensure you have peace of mind. 

What's more, Dashlane streamlines and secures other types of data used in online forms, like credit card information. You can save financial details and quickly copy them onto your online shopping portal of choice. And it automatically saves the receipts of all your purchases so you can track your spending.

Best cloud storage app

Obviously, the whole Google Apps suite is essential to office productivity. And, cloud storage is so commonplace now that its name doesn't sound quite as mystical and ethereal as it did a few years ago. That doesn't make it any less useful, as storing your personal data online is - for the most part - much safer than keeping it on a fragile old hard drive.

We're prepared to accept accusations of bias here, as our favorite cloud storage app is Google Drive. It's baked into most Android devices, Google is always giving extra GBs of storage space away for free, and it's synced up with the handy Google Docs office suite. It's the undisputed champ.

Best security/antivirus apps for Android

Mobile Security & Antivirus from Avast

Android security is a contentious subject and arguments about the safety of the system crop up frequently. If you are in the market for an antivirus app, our current favorite is Mobile Security & Antivirus from Avast. 

Mobile Security & Antivirus keeps you safe from malware threats with its excellent virus detection software, which can search through your browser history, microSD card, and internal storage space. What's more, it employs anti-theft features such as location tracking and remote data wipe, which work even if your device is not currently in your possession. 

As far as free mobile security is concerned, Avast's app is about as comprehensive as it gets.

Best apps for personalizing your Android

Action Launcher 3

Launchers offer a simple way to customize the look and feel of your Android phone. They often combine new icons, a new app drawer layout, a new homescreen and new wallpaper to make your device fit a certain style or theme.

You have to try them out to appreciate how fun they can be and the one we recommend right now is Action Launcher 3. This is an excellent introduction to launchers because it provides clear and intuitive interface changes without adding so many that it becomes off-putting.  

With Action Launcher 3 you can perform simple tweaks such as changing the app drawer layout, changing app icons, and even altering the way you use your homescreen folders. It offers genuinely useful interface improvements and it's free; download it from the link below.

Nova Launcher

iOS is a fierce rival to Android and offers a range of great apps and features, but it doesn't offer everything that Android does. Nova Launcher is one of our favorite Android-exclusive apps because, in many ways, it underlines what is so great about Android. 

Nova is an alternative launcher compatible with Android 4.1 onward. It lets you customize the entire look and feel of your operating system, from changes to font size, to the number of apps that can appear on the lock screen, to the way in which your app drawer scrolls. Nova Launcher is a prime example of how Android can be molded to suit individual tastes and preferences, in a way that iOS cannot.

If you wish you could make a few simple changes to your current interface, then give the free version of Nova a try. Nova even lets you adopt the look of any other phone - Galaxy, Xperia, HTC, LG, even iOS if that's your thing.

Nova Launcher Install on Google Play

Next Lock Screen

Lock screen apps are awesome - you can do things on your smartphone or tablet without even having to unlock it. From checking notifications, calendar reminders, music controls, missed calls, Quick Settings and more, Next Lock Screen lets you take control of your locked phone. Next will even suggest apps based on your location.

    Thanks for sharing this!


  • I would like to add one more category here

    Best Game Apps for Android

    1- Critical Ops
    2- Clash Royale
    3- Cut the Rope


  • Yes. All of these are great apps and useful for an Android Devices. But i also like to mention another app called "WiFiKill Pro".

    I think it is one of the best app in controling wifi network. Any one can easily monitor his/her network. As well as can kick or block unwanted user or device. you can check here -> wifikill.net


  • The best app of 2017 is Writelight. Writelight has 200 prompts for freewriting. There are prompts for creative thinking, reflection on career and life issues, special prompts for bad and good mood. It will help you to start journaling and will make you a better person eventually.


  • Skype is also becoming very popular now. in my openion it is on number 2 after Whatsapp.


  • Why weren't social apps added to above list ? I think social apps are most popular category for each app store. I want to add an app called "NearBy" to social category. I have tried to using this app and realized that NearBy is better than most known social apps. I can see Instagram and Twitter posts, photos and videos located near me. So meeting new people in the same neighbourhood is possible via this app I think. You can try and say thanks to me :) this is the app page:www.sga-nearby.com


  • Sorry, but Fleksy doesn't seem to be very user friendly. So I can't change the language while writing a message.
    And it continuously insists in wrongly auto correcting the words typed in. It's really not funny...


  • I don't see how to store favorite places in HERE Maps. Does anyone know that? Thanks


    • Press and hold your favorite, rename the adress if it's needed, and add that place to your personal collection


  • Cool


  • Really nice Article!. Enjoyed it! Specially applications with more value add to Android users are the current age requirement across world.

    Thanks

  • Thanks for sharing. I would like to add a privacy protection app called LEO Privacy in my list. Because it can help me put all my important personal stuff in my private vault.


  • Wow, wonderful apps to use on a mobile is a small world.......................If anyone wants to sell their android mobile they can search on this pluslogin website.


  • the best android app in india is share it. hahahaha lolz..... no phone without share it


  • Google might be doing well with Android, but to help consumers out more with there phones batterylife, why? Don't the include the "Exit"option for All applications created, as consumers can become very angry with there phone or experience with Android, you can think you have finished using some applications but there still running in the background and its in your mind thinking, Why? is my battery draining, even though you have not used anything on your phone


  • There are countless platforms available in the market but android is the first choice in App Development Industry. android is an open source platform and multiple applications can be used by Android App Developers without any licence fee. we at our app development company agicent also work a lot on android app development and would be glad to speak more.


  • fufu 8 months ago Link to comment

    How about being able to use youtube and any app with phone locked? No Pause Lock on google play


  • You can try Eject - Android Apps on Google PlayThe Eject App, it is currently trending in the USA, it is a Video Uploading App and they have added lots of Categories to upload a Video. You can gain Fans for your art and it can be used to do both, upload and surf through videos of Talented Individuals. This one is for art lovers.


  • I think, you forget to include cache cleaning apps. why these are so important? because these apps are the only thing who can save my mobile's memory and maintain my battery otherwise my mobile will getting slow and junk files will harm my phone's battery and processor. IMHO, this can be cause of your mobile death. My top 5 cache cleaning apps are:

    Nitro Boost and Cleaner
    CCleaner
    Clean Cache - Optimize
    App Cache Cleaner - 1Tap Clean
    CM Speed Booster丨Cache Cleaner


  • Satyam 9 months ago Link to comment

    "POLYNEED" is a newcomer but i believe soon will be the World's most useful App!
    Using which people never have to install various app for various purposes!
    Download just one app instead many!
    Isn't cool? Try it today!


    • I'll definitely try this! I'm not a fan of having 100 apps. Thank you


      • HERMIT .That's the app you are looking for.Try to buy it (less than 5 $) instead of going with a free version to unlock its full potential.All my shopping apps- Amazon ,E bay etc as well as others like Facebook,Twitter ,Deviant-art ...they are all now within HERMIT. Polyneed seems to be a startup app built with the Indian consumer in mind (only 100 downloads ).Hermit is an app with history and the number of people using it is very high .It's now polished and has Ad-blocking ,Fullscreen and a bevy of seemingly useless features .Why don't they (Androidpit geeks) put it here ,I wonder...

  • Hi Scott,
    It seems you have done a deep research on the topic. Here, I am sharing an app for share market investors & traders.
    The app name is TRADEIT. I am using this app from past few months and earned a good profit through their advice.
    Hope this helps!
    Thanks


  • Adam Smith 10 months ago Link to comment

    Thanks for great app tips. I will comment though that I think jetaudio plus player has better audio quality than poweramp. Poweramp has arguably a better interface, but for playing music IMHO jetaudio has better audio playback and amazing extra purchased add ons.


  • Very good job.... Thank for sharing..
    Just continue to enjoy people around the world...

  • Check also Filmsquare for android, get movie info & suggestions


  • There’s this awesome app called GrabPoints. In a nutshell they pay you for trying out new apps and answering a couple of surveys. I love using it because they are always active on social media giving out points and the rewards are always fair. Like just for signing up you already get $1 then if you use a friend’s invite code you get 500 PTS and easy AND your friend gets points in return too! See even simply inviting people earns you money. If you ever happen to try GRABPOINTS please use my invite code: S6FMAC Hope this helps!

    I really like LEO Privacys. Its really a good and nice app lock because even you clear the apps data and cache in apps manager, its still working fine. I mean, the security code is not gone. Its really prevent unauthorize use of your phone apps. Good job.


  • Hi , I worked for more than 1 year by myself for this app: play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.NoDev.WarBot
    and due to a lot of download farms, my app is useless.
    It doesn't matter if you do a great app, useful and you work hard because no one will know about it.
    This promoting stuff is becoming impossible for those without money to invest in.


    • Daniell Sep 2, 2016 Link to comment

      I took a look at your app and I must say, it stinks. Instead of wasting money on promotion, create a fun and engaging game.

    Sorry but X-plore is THE BEST file manager out there and it's totally free. You should give it a try cause I tried many myself and would never change it.


    • Luis MB Jul 5, 2016 Link to comment

      you should also try Total launcher... A very powerful and customizable launcher (maybe too much).


  • Found out this super useful new location-based app called "Getmii"!

    Introduced by my university friend in Boston! You can instantly ask for what you need to people around you! (for example, any kind of advice, student and classes information, apartment looking, internship seeking, etc...) You can probably make a sell/purchase by doing this as well! Check it out! It's really interesting!


  • Cool list. But consider adding Weblifier. You can bookmark this page and automatically get notified of any new comments. You can bookmark Any Facebook or forum post to follow the development. You can automatically find and browse rss feeds on a bookmark. You can see, browse and bookmark all the alexa top websites. You can search Google and amazon and Yahoo and YouTube from a single page and have them open in new tabs; so you can keep searching. You can do wonderful BRAND NEW things with Weblifier. This app should make the list, clearly...

    Hi guys,

    Check out the new Shift It app from Macondo Software Labs designed to help you with your weekly schedule. It's extremely helpful, easy to use and pleasing to the eye!


  • I absolutely love parental control apps because they are great for my chilren and I can tell it's a top suggestion you have there. Another one I could recommend is studylock


  • Please advise how we can get our Lock Screen App reviewed.
    It allows users to unlock their Android smartphone with their Instagram photos as a memorable and secure way of protecting their phone.
    The clever bit is the security where the keypad uses the same photos but they are in a different order each time the user logs in. This turns the same password sequence into a one-time password for every login.
    It can be downloaded from Google's Play Store by searching 'IconLogin' or from our website www.iconlogin.com
    Thanks for any advice.


  • you forgot about Business Card Reader Base CRM app. it will help to quickly create a contact with a business card in your phone, gmail or CRM system. Supports voice memos. This app saves my time not one time.


  • Jim Jun 15, 2016 Link to comment

    There are a number of apps you've missed like Pi music player it has bass boost an EQ and an built in ring tone maker that works quite well. Far and away the best launcher is Apex. I've tried just about all of them and Apex is the best IMHO. ES Global removed the adds. I like ES file explorers functionality and the look of the classic theme (which is not available in the pro version sadly). The biggest plus for me is it handles the handoff of streaming video over my LAN from a windows share to the VLC app seamlessly. Sorry it's not getting uninstalled on my phone. If you like live wallpaper Earth-Moon pro is awesome. Also if you like to lock apps away from prying eyes Smart Applock pro is the best there is. I like the feature where it takes the intruders picture when they can't guess your passcode/pattern. Rotation Control by CrapeMyrtle is a very good rotation control program that places it's control mechanism in your notification drop down. Also has app rotation protection that won't let apps rotate the screen. The only app missing on this list is a good alternative to the stock phone app. All the ones I have tried are lacking.


    • Mark G. Jun 15, 2016 Link to comment

      How often do you think you'll catch someone trying to access the locked apps? Don't you use a lock screen password? Do you often have strangers (or anyone else you might know) accessing your device?

      These apps can be useful to alleviate paranoia but in reality the majority of users should have no need to waste storage and resources by installing these types of apps.

      Peace ✌


  • This article have been a blessing, I found it educative and interesting to read. Also some of the Apps suggested, have been downloaded and put use by me which made browsing easier through use of such apps. Thanks


  • A good list of useful and best apps on playstore for android devices. I would also request you to try this amazing app which is very useful for chatting to people nearby you anonymously and at the same you can also give reviews about places near you and also ask people about how the place is before visiting..... Tha name of App is "HoHooChat" you can download it from playstore by just searching "HoHooChat" on playstore.

  • Very important post. I generally use the Dasher Messenger.Thanks for this.


  • Mark G. Jun 2, 2016 Link to comment

    I only use Chrome and Drive from the list - I would disagree with every other entry.

    Though I definitely disagree with the file Manager section - X-plore is without doubt the best.

    Music player - Playerpro again without doubt the best

    It's difficult to gauge the rest of the list, are you paid to promote the above mentioned apps? Or are they apps that you genuinely use everyday?

    Peace ✌


  • AntiVirus app? Really?

    Come on Androidpit, give us a list of viruses on Android. Better still, scribe a well-researched article about viruses on Android. You could could start by explaining how Android uses a 'sandbox' to run apps and what the pros and cons of this approach are.

    Research might be somewhat challenging for your writers, I suspect.


  • Sandy Jun 2, 2016 Link to comment

    Its all the same list every time very disappointed 😞


  • Alex P. Jun 1, 2016 Link to comment

    I am sorry cant agree with the launcher Nova launcher prime is the best launcher made for Android so far.Antivirus apps dont work as helpful as they do in pcs and android has inbuilt security Google scans the app thats been installed or before installing for viruses so i dont think antivirus app helps.I dont agree with the Google drive as cloud storage is not safe as already google steals our data Its better to download tresorit which is safe as it offers end to end encryption for file uploading and downloading as well and more than millions of people tried to hack it but they couldnt they are so strong that they offer $50,000 for who hacks it and also ES FILE MANAGER OR EXPLORER PRO IS BEST NO MATTER WHAT.


    • Lithium Jun 6, 2016 Link to comment

      Agree on action launcher 3, its just a money grab by the developer. just read the comments/review on google play and you can see its abandon, the last update was last year and all the problems highlighted by its users were ignored. very soon there will be ACTION LAUNCHER 4 and you will need to PAY ONE MORE TIME!
      How can andoidpit recommend abandon ware? Disappointed.......

    Great list indeed .. Can I suggest that you add spysync.com application for monitoring and tracking ?


  • Quipsphere is the mobile app for sharing ideas, comments and opinions in the form of recorded voice message.. way better than twitter in my opinion.


  • Checkout an app named "Bucker" it's really cool!! You can get all things done is just one app, do a recharge, book a cab, compare prices and buy stuff online and so much more. Worth trying!


  • I refuse to use Google play music app anymore...won't let you download your music and if you activate too many devices you are out of luck. They let you deactivate once as a courtesy...But I trade phones every couple of months.


  • Is there no app for remainder like evernote or anything?


  • There’s this awesome app called GrabPoints. In a nutshell they pay you for trying out new apps and answering a couple of surveys. I love using it because they are always active on social media giving out points and the rewards are always fair. Like just for signing up you already get $1 then if you use a friend’s invite code you get 500 PTS and easy AND your friend gets points in return too! See even simply inviting people earns you money. If you ever happen to try GRABPOINTS please use my invite code: S6FMAC Hope this helps!


  • Wow that's pretty cool list, even some of the apps I've never heard of them. Thanks for these gems.


  • For unknown apps category, I think the mention above is a bit dated. So many great entrants; especially Nestob. This app will give you all the best websites in the world, grouped by country or categories. It's not a search engine but a search device (you have less control but it just works great and does what you need for the most part). Not only will you find your information but you will find many more exciting stuff to learn or do online. And it's free!

  • Hi. Had one unexpected problem with pocket when I used it... it saved to the cloud only links to web stuff seen or read, rather than accepting snippets or saving snapshots. So something I read six weeks ago and want to come back to in pocket... may have disappeared! The webpage amended, updated or deleted, could mean pocket content Lost! Now I use Telegram or Podio for maintaining constancy.

  • Hulu? I thought I heard something about them sharing private information of it's users.
    Es File Explorer. Even though I've been using it for years I can't say I'm too happy with the developer. They crippled their app not too long ago so users would buy the pro version. What they should have done was offer more features for the pro version. The pro version is well worth $4.
    For cloud storage app I use Es File Explorer and whatever cloud service I want.
    Next Lock Screen, according to the Play Store reviews, latest update is not good.


  • Thanks for great app tips. I will comment though that I think jetaudio plus player is better audio quality then poweramp. Poweramp has arguably a better interface, but for playing music IMHO jetaudio has better audio playback and amazing extra purchased dsp add ons.

  • Good list - I'd have an alternative here or there. I have to say the only reliable weather service for Canada is Environment Canada, and pretty graphics are no substitute for getting the forecast right. A bright young developer in Halifax called Fish&Whistle has really outdone the government in providing a polished, efficient and configurable app for Environment Canada.

  • I didn't see a category for Best Deals App, which helps people to find the best deals. There are many daily deals apps or coupon apps, but here is a very different one: DealsWatchDog. (play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.dealswatchdog.dealswatchdog&hl=en) The idea is that you enter what product you want to buy and the current market price for the product, the app will monitor many popular market places 24x7 for the product. If it noticed a better price than the price entered, it will notify the user for the deal. Think about the particular lawn mower you wanted to buy but in no hurry so you decided to wait until there was a sale...

    Disclaimer: I'm the developer of this new Android app.

  • Why is Circle Guess not mentioned here? It is the most recent ground-breaking app for children yet it wasn't mentioned here. It's an easy app for toddlers and up which supposedly teaches them less and greater than numbers. We must not forget that the value of apps for kids rely mainly on how educational it is. Fun and educational must be the benchmark for all children's app. For more info about how to get your kids learn from having fun, download Circle Guess on Appstore, Playstore, or Amazon Appstore. Or message me for more resources.


  • I think is Es file explorer is the best file manager..for me.


  • Pocketcasts is the best podcasting app, Tunein Radio is also a good choice if one wants to listen to both Podcasts and other radio channels

  • Gita S. Dec 3, 2015 Link to comment

    Thanks for this list!! I have been traveling since 2002 and that time technology was not so advanced and we didn't have mobile applications to help while traveling and now there are so many applications that i sometimes get lost in the crowd searching for which are the best. Your list is a good consolidation of best apps!!

    From past 2 years I have been using a travel diary called Roadlike. Roadlike is an app that lets me document my day to day moments. It is simple & innovative diary & works in OFFLINE MODE. It is one of my favorite app because it allows me to capture my daily moments & check in at places even in offline with exact locations tagged to it, few photos or a short video and small memory notes.

    Also, it does this well when I am in offline mode (due to bad internet connection while travelling to remote areas or traveling internationally).

    Link to their website is - www.roadlike.com

    They are available on iOS - itunes.apple.com/us/app/roadlike-capture-moments-locations/id916457325?ls=1&mt=8 and

    Android platform - play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.roadlike.app.

    Also, following are my top 6 good travel apps which i use:

    Expensify for managing expense;
    Roadlike for capturing travel moments with check ins, capturing locations, photos & videos;
    PackPoint for not missing out on any item to pack before traveling;
    TripAdvisor for recommendations of hotels & restaurants;
    Expedia for booking travels; and
    Pocket for reading while traveling - works in offline.

  • thanks for sharing nice aap list.
    I m using "IPro Habit Tracker" for tracking the habits in android and iphone. Also its streak representation is best based on filter.

    I like database backup and restore functionality of the application. Specially see backup file from document directory which is in decoding format, it is best for security purpose.


  • push-bullet is better than pocket and few more are missing.

  • Damn that was a good list! You know there's actually an app called Phone Meter to track the number of times you touch your phone in a day. The crazy part is when you start comparing your numbers with your friends'! Look for the blue fist icon


  • I would argue that ShowBox is the best for TV show and Movie streaming. Yes you can't get it from the Play Store. But it still is much better then Hulu


    • Mark G. Dec 1, 2015 Link to comment

      Be aware though that showbox & popcorntime are illegal - you are downloading copyrighted material which if certain authorities find out could mean a loss of Internet (banned) fines or worse.

      Though it is unlikely that they would bother with small time users. It's good to be aware...

    It seems like just yesterday that Instagram was adding video. Then direct messaging. And now the image sharing service that made us all fall in love with filters brings enhanced photo editing features that let it compete with the likes of Snapseed. What hasn't changed is the passionate userbase sharing incredible photos from around the world.

    Although my favorite hands down is still (play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.system.app.uninstaller) its basically a way for you to uninstall apps from android. Highly recommended adding this to the list too.


  • I haven't used these apps that you have shared. Perhaps I should get my hands on those two as well. Currently I'm using Weather Mate which provides pretty accurate and reliable weather updates. It has nice features such as interactive weather maps, personal weather stations, weather history, travel planner, severe weather alerts and plenty more. I'm happy with it but would definitely try those ones as well.


  • Nova launcher.. worth every second I spent learning how to set up, my first launcher you never forget the first time.... Yahoo like Nova,was my first weather app and tried lot's of alternatives but Yahoo remains my default go to weather cos it works and look's great....

  • Hi, try out this new app. It's called "We're arriving", and it's a location-based alarm manager. The idea is help people that often go to unknown places, or frequently use public transport and enjoy being distracted by a book, music, landscape or take a good nap. Now they can rest assured that the We're arriving will notify them when entering the alarm trigger area. Check it out at play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.acacio.jatachegandotrial

    I've been using a few of these from quite some time. I must say you've got many areas covered. There's just one suggestion I'd like to make. Though it's pretty new, you must still give it a go. You'd surprised pleasantly as I was. It's a music player named Solo Music Player. It won't be wrong to say that it's among the most beautiful android apps I've ever seen. It is too good to be missed out.

    Please don't recommend AVG. It's a mediocre antivirus at best, and they've recently come out and flat out told people they were going to sell their personal info to make up for the fact they're using a free AV. If anything, an AV like Avast, F-Secure, Trend Micro or Webroot would be a much better suggestion.


  • Jeffrey Sep 13, 2015 Link to comment

    What an awesome list! A lot of these are already my favorites so I trust your taste and I have several of the recommendations downloading as I type. I've been using Smart Launcher for a few years now and won't use anything else. Same with Swiftkey keyboard which I will put aside for now to test out your recommendation of Flesky. Always gotta try new apps and make sure your favorites aren't outdated ideas that have been improved on by someone else. Usually when I try to find articles like this, I find ones that are simply people being paid to promote an app. This list seems like legit research has gone into it and honest opinion. Great work!

  • Mr. Editor. It was really nice to know about the information you have shared and all of this information was helpful too. But i have a querry. It keeps bugging me about safety of the android devices when it comes to using a third party app or an app store. So how do you justify that your suggestion to use an alternate for "google play store" called "slide me" will have no breach which would affect the users? I want to use it but since i am more conscious with the security issues, i am asking you this. Hope you don't mind. Please reply with your valuable suggestions.

I had used it before, downloaded from the app store at Amazon. But the last time I updated the app, it asked me to please log into my Google account, which it had never done before. So, already it didn't feel right. I typed maybe one or two characters of my Google password, when I noticed that my password text was completely visible (i.e. it was a cleartext form field). This was clearly a sign of phishing, as the true Google login always masks the password text with asterisks. I immediately exited the app and uninstalled it. My advice: be very careful downloading from third party sources. If you do use them, carefully read reviews and comments, and pay attention to the app's behavior. If something doesn't feel right, it probably isn't. Uninstall.


  • play store

  • I have been using Swype keyboard for a long time now. Its auto correct feature makes it faster than using the predictive text feature of SwiftKey. It works very well with fat fingers too! LOL


  • Please link ANDROIDPITTRIPLE100XONEHUNDREDPAY


  • Ankit Jun 8, 2015 Link to comment

    Uniq mobile finder is a great app and deserve to be in the list because of its stunning features for getting back the lost or stolen mobile phone.


  • I haven’t tried most of the stuff on your list. But I recently downloaded this app called GrabPoints and so far I’m liking it. They have lots of offers in a day and the surveys aren’t long. Points given out are quite high and they’re fair about giving the points. Oddly enough they always give out points on their social media accounts too! hahaha! Anyway here’s my invite code: S6FMAC you get 50PTS right away for using it. If you download GRABPOINTS you get 1$ just for signing up. You guys have to try it.


  • Musicxmatch is also a good app for music lovers


  • I'll take cheetah over dolphin any day & while it's not for everyone, Novakey is the best keyboard.


  • Android apps are just amazing and they are a big help in our daily lifestyle especially in the technology and entertainment aspect.


  • I think there needs to be a category for best Android wear app.


  • drupe has opened a beta community "drupers"! Join in if you wish to explore new features ahead of everyone else, and take part in shaping the future of drupe https: //plus.google.com/u/0/communities/112238949337142070921


  • I am using proofhub these days to manage my work. It's the best android app I have used for my work. I'd suggest you guys to check it out as well.


  • Where is "UNIQ MOBILE FINDER" in the list, Its one of the best app people must have in their android device. Using which people never lost their phone again. You can save your stolen smartphone and protect your personal info from unwelcome intruders. Must use app.


    • Its newly launched application but I loved it so much and its really having great features like taking intruders photo, video, phone location, tracking the phone and having almost all features to get back your lost mobile phone. other than that it has other features like get the contact backup in your mail, send the intruder details through SMS if you dont have internet connection and triggers the alarm if anybody move the phone without you knowledge. Its created by a small kid from India and hope its going to be one of best application in android market. Hope to see the some unique app also on the list soon.

      UNIQ MOBILE FINDER is a great app to get back your lost or stolen mobile. It has really cool features. Its one of the best app every android device should have. This is going to be one of the most popular app in market soon.


    • Aaditya Jun 25, 2015 Link to comment

      UNIQ MOBILE FINDER is deserve to be in this list. I totally agree with you.


  • Just wondering why there are no money making apps here? I'd like to suggest GrabPoints it's relatively new but it's a great contender to beat the outstanding SwagBucks reign. UX and UI is very streamlined and well thought of. Now they're beginning to be very active on social media giving out points all the time. Use my promocode when you check it out and you get 50PTS right off the bat: S6FMAC


  • Why there is no ArkMC, a streaming media center. Multi-functional application with YouTube streaming. Maybe you need not to choose only by the ratings, but by a try yourself.


  • Well, there are too many apps that are missing in this article. For example Mailwise - An Android email exchange app that can help you Sync your mail account for Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync, Outlook, Hotmail, Yahoo, AOL, GMX, Live.com, MSN, Gmail and even IMAP in seconds.


    • Robert you are correct. There are many applications who deserves to be in the list. Mailwise is a great app and it should be in the list of best app. And at the same time UNIQ MOBILE FINDER, A great concept by a small kid who deserve to be in the list because of his excellence. Awesome application.


  • Wow it's amazing and perfect. Best video app it's awesome.


  • You can also add Noom Coach to the fitness club. It has got a brilliant look and is too well organized. And what about CM Security? it does more than what you want it to do. Its time to refresh your list by adding the new apps :P


  • Cools apps loved the Magic Locker Main app !! I discovered one more cool app which saves alot of my time when I want to find something on the net . The app acts as an expert and finds answer to any of the questions you ask from the net and comes back with in moments with a exact or usable answer saving lot of my timing which i spend on the net searching for answers. The app is named TheLightApp check out its vid on youtube or www.thelightapp.com


  • Check Unique Widgets, it really worth to be in the list


  • You MUST checkout TapIt Launcher. Lets you Tap the back of your phone to perform actions. Makes life better :)


  • I think that the Chrome is the best browser for Android, not the Dolphin browser.


  • Mel Fox Mar 23, 2015 Link to comment

    WhatsApp phone update were is it I have the latest version but I can't receive the phone update.
    I now have the phone, The WhatsApp is great. Thanks to the people that helped.


  • these are really good apps


  • amr ahmed Mar 17, 2015 Link to comment

    so ...after seeing that dolphin browser in this article there is no need to complete reading this ... I think it's a joke or just kinda of beginner class article cause when you ignore Firefox browser or chrome you must be kidding us


  • My1 Mar 17, 2015 Link to comment

    isnt it WAY TOO EARLY no matter from which perspective to rate the best <insert something here> of 2015???


    • I was going to say that myself. They can't even say best anything of 2015 Q1


      • My1 Mar 17, 2015 Link to comment

        This is true as well...
        But ganes and such call themselves game of the year or whatever despite it sometimes even being January...
        Or what I already heard "the best whatever of the Millennium or the century" i mean seriously, WTF?


  • Messenger apps makes communication easier and better. They are a must download for easy keeping in touch with your family and friends.


  • SW Apps Mar 13, 2015 Link to comment

    I'd recommend Pixel Dungeon or Swipurr cat gallery


  • Look for WWTUNER in Play Store.
    The best Android radio player!


  • Does somebody if Poweramp is compatible with uFXloops? uFXloops is my favourite music creation app, but it has no EQ.


  • Camera360 Ultimate gives you the perfect and most flawless picture. You can also edit it according to your style and taste as it features are diverse.


  • Mark G. Feb 2, 2015 Link to comment

    I use Playerpro for my music, it has everything I need (edit, ID3 tags, multi EQ, customised sound settings etc, etc). I would highly recommend it, also X-plore file Manager is a must have!


  • I have had Poweramp of all of my phones for years and just won't use anything else. At sometime though you have to pay for it so be prepared.


  • I'm sick of reading about how good power amp is and me not having it. Time to get it I think
