Essential apps for every Android user

Essential apps for every Android user

As someone who works for one of the big carriers in the US, I run into the same question on an almost daily basis. What apps should I try out and download? This is something that is asked by even those tech-savvy users when they switch from iOS or Windows Phone to Android. This got me thinking, “Why not try to compile a list of some of the best apps for Android users?” So, whether you are a beginner or if you’re Steve Kondik, we’ve got some apps to put you up on.

We’ve collected some of our favorite and must-have apps that go on every single device we one. You know, those titles that we simply can’t live without and which go immediately onto our smartphones and tablets. Without further ado, here’s our Essential Apps for Every Android User.


AirDroid

 

AirDroid

When it comes to sharing basically anything between my computer and my smartphone/tablet AirDroid is here. But that’s only a top of the iceberg when it comes to this app, it could take a while to list everything it can do. Let us just put it this way, when you connect AirDroid to you computer you can turn of your phone’s screen and control it via web browser from your computer.


Pocket

Pocket

I save a lot of links during my day and that’s where Pocket comes in. It’s sort of a cloud bookmarking, you just click that share icon and tap “Add to Pocket” in order to save something. You can save some articles, videos or whatever you want from a certain website in order to check it out offline or just be able to access it from wherever you want.


Nova Launcher Prime

Nova Launcher

Nova Launcher is simply an amazing Android launcher. It’s fast, fluid extremely customizable and it offers soooo much functionality. This is basically the first app I install on my devices. There is a free version, but you will end up purchasing the Prime license for even more functionality than the free version. 


ChompSMS

ChompSMS

chomp SMS is a highly customizable third-party SMS app. I like my SMS conversations and app in general to look like a want it to look and chomp SMS comes in handy when it comes to that. You can customize pretty much anything and that’s why I love this app. Plus it offers extra functionality.


Pixlr Express

Pixlr Express

Pixlr is a great app for editing photos. It’s easy to flip through filters, borders, and other options to make your pictures look just how you want them. It’s got a nice layout, and beautiful design. It’s one of the most useful apps I’ve used!

    Shazzam is a waste of time to install now that you can use SoundSearch for Google Play. It backs up your history to your Google account and you don’t even need to log in to start using it.

    You must take a look at
    1) Flashlight revolution (flashlight on lock screen with shake gesture)
    2) Multi photos contact (photo contact change automatically)
    3) hello SMS ( sms app replacement )
