Perfect Screenshot


Perfect Screenshot takes your boring home screen screenshots and makes them exciting by adding a device frame around your screenshot. It helps your screenshots look more visually pleasing. Currently there are 16 device frames to choose from, but the creator is very quick at added requested devices. The best part is that this is all free! Other apps only let you do so much before asking you to pay money. This app is free to install, free to use and ad free. It is by far the easiest to use screenshot maker that I have found to date. The app was created to satisfy the creators own need to create the “Perfect Screenshot”, and he is more than pleased to see that his creation is enjoyed and loved by others as well. Currently, he is working on making the app rock solid and stable before adding more features like a TabletUI and other usability features to come!

X-Plore File Manager

X-Plore File Manager

X-Plore File Manager is what it says it is. A file manager, but somehow it is more. Way more. X-Plore has all of the features of most file managers out there. It lets you open files, move files, delete files rename files, but it also does more. X-Plore has given you two windows to make moving files around that much easier. Open the file you want to move in one window and open the desired location in the other. Then all you do is hit copy. X-Plore also lets you open up .zip files and extract them as well. You can open .apks as .zips, you can change the extension of the file. It even works as a root browser. There is nothing that I have not been able to do with X-Plore to this day and that is why it has found its way onto every single on of my devices as the first or second app installed.



Better looking and more robust with each update, the preferred method of virtual payments is one of my favorite apps. It’s a breeze to send and receive payments, track history, find nearby locations that accept PayPal, and more. If you’re buying and selling online, have a storefront, or like to spread your wealth, you’ll want this app.



Being a movie and television junkie I can’t resist the urge to pop open this app from time to time so I can learn more about the show I’m watching. Be it news, trivia, goofs, soundtrack details or the rabbit hole of hopping from one actor and show to another, I can’t get enough. IMDb is the first name in this space and the Android app perfectly complements the web experience.



Google’s $35 dongle is not only a bestseller around the world, but also in my house. I have two of them, one in my living room and one in my bedroom and to be able to connect to them when needed or if they are having problems and to discover new apps for use with it, this app is essential.

Facebook Messenger

Facebook Messenger

Some people say that instant messaging with one day beat out email and while I don’t think that’s true, IM is the top way I communicate with people daily and with that Facebook Messenger. Although I use the standard Facebook app all the time, it’s the messenger app that I use more than anything. It allows to me to communicate with not only my girlfriend easily, but also my friends and family, plus I can continue chatting on multiple devices, whether my smartphone, tablet or laptop.

    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 )
