Essential apps for every Android user

Essential apps for every Android user


Google Drive

Google-Drive

Being a musician, Google Drive is essential. Uploading large files and documents is simple, and anyone you choose can view or edit them. Its easy to share important files that need to be kept safe, and collaborate on different things. An infinitely useful app.


QuickPic

QuickPic

QuickPic is my go to gallery app and has been for years now. It blows the stock gallery out of the water as far as features and speed. And currently the app is going through a major over haul to allow you to view images from cloud services such as Google Drive, Dropbox and many others. One of my most highly recommended apps and definitely one of the first 2 or 3 apps that I install on any brand new or freshly rooted device.


Timely

Timely

All phones come with a stock alarm and timer Timely brings alarms to a whole new level. With a beautiful interface and options to choose how you wake up this is a must have for me. Google has purchased Timely so it’s now free on the Play Store and I see it becoming a standard in Android eventually.


Dropbox

Dropbox

Perhaps the first name in cloud storage, this is the official app for storing and sharing all of your media. Yes, many Android apps tie into the service, but only this one allows for the full functionality. And, thanks to the sharing intents with Android, it’s drop-dead easy to share your pictures, music, videos, and other media to your personal cloud.

 


Google Opinion Rewards

Google Opinion Rewards

Google Opinion Rewards provides you surveys and reward you with Google Play credit. Who doesn’t like free money. The surveys are totally random and usually short. Most surveys pay small amounts some pay up to a $1.00. Google also keeps you on your toes by asking bogus surveys time to time to weed out people that aren’t reading and just looking for credit. This is a must have as it adds up fairly quickly and lets you explore new apps and other play services you otherwise wouldn’t have taken a chance on.

    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 )
