I have received a lot of requests from my friends to do a post on my favorite and useful android apps. The problem with such a post is that it would be an unending list and too long. But then, the idea is good. So I thought I will give it a shot today. Let us discuss this more today.
Before beginning the post here are a few points
- This is just a list of apps, I am NOT reviewing or describing Android apps
- These are the apps that I like and a lot of my friends do too, if I missed anything here, just comment on this post
Now the list
- Amazon Kindle – Official Kindle e-book reader app from Amazon
- Moon+ Reader – Versatile and highly customizable e-book reader
- Goodreads – Official app for popular book recommendation site Goodreads
- Quora – Official Quora app
- Press – Beautiful Google Reader app
- StumbleUpon – Official StumbleUpon app
- Pocket Casts – Hands down the best podcast manager
- Umano – News read to you (very new app so does not have large selection of news)
- Songza – Free music playlist streaming according to your situation
- Google Play Music – Streams your music collection
- File Manager – Holo 100% – Holo-themed file and application manager
- ASTRO File Manager – Very popular and feature rich file manager
- Pocket – The best way to save and view articles from the internet
- Playboard – App finding app
- MyScript Calculator – perform mathematical operations naturally using your handwriting
- Detexify LaTeX Recognizer – Interactive LaTeX cheat sheet
- Any.DO* – Never forget anything again. The reminder app. UI/UX is 5 stars.
- Google Keep* – Damn you Google! Where had you this hidden? Never seen a better note taking app. Syncs amazingly with your Drive.
- Aldiko Book Reader* – It’s uh.. good. Does what a book reader should.
- Pulse News/Flipboard – I personally like Pulse better. Both do the same thing, so just pick your poison!
- 1Tap Cleaner – Cache/History/Log/Defaults cleaner.
- Memory Booster Lite – Better than Android Task Killer, any day. Use it with caution though.
- ASTRO File Manager* – Does more than what you need it for.
- Where’s My Droid – Haven’t had the need to use it thus far, but I *tried* it once and it works like a charm.
- Gmail – Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant.
- Poweramp Music Player – The interface is kinda dark, but it works really well and has a lot of options.
- MX Player* – Can’t see a better and lighter video player.
- Aviary – Good for quick photo editing. Use it quite often. Has a lot of filters, frames and sticker sets you can buy.
- Grooveshark – Yes! it’s finally here! I don’t think their app is available in the Play Store but you can grab it from their website for free.
- Podkicker – It’s UI is very, very basic; is a kick ass podcast player nonetheless.
