Must-have android apps
After the first few days of getting an Android device, I saw that the battery life is too short. You need a good application to manage power consumption on your device and I found DU Battery Saver Pro to be very effective. There’s a free version of this but the pro version does much more.
Some Android devices come with a file manage but if yours don’t have one, you can check this out. I rarely use the file manager feature because this app does much more than that. It lets you back up installed applications to .apk packages. Even if you downloaded the app from Google Play, ES File Explorer lets you get the .apk file and save on your SD card. It’s a cool way to package a downloaded application to an apk file and send to your friend through bluetooth on the go. It’s got other features like task killer and cloud storage client.
Type faster and easier with an iPhone keyboard layout, while enjoying the cool features of the Android OS.
This free app is ad supported and may contain ads in the notification tray and/or home screen. It contains the same features as the paid version except it also contains Ads.
The pro version has no ads but you may check out the free version if you don’t feel like paying.
I really don’t like it when people pick up my phone and start going through my stuffs without permission. Some even pick up your phone and start reading your SMS… annoying, huh? Smart App Protector lets you lock selected apps you don’t want people accessing. It prompts for a password each time you try opening the app. You can lock installed apps as well as messages, phonebook and the rest.
Just as the name suggests, this application lets you enable/disable apps that startup with your mobile device when turned on.
This is another battery saving application that cleverly manages your connections like Wi-Fi, 3G and it’s got a sync manager you should find useful. Also, this app lets you manage connectivity for each application o your device.
7. MovieTubeull Movies
I already said some of these apps are just for fun. If you love movies, you will appreciate this app. Enough said.
You have it already? Then it isn’t for you. If you’re still using your default browser, this is the best browser there is for your Android device.
You probably won’t be needing this but I’ll still include it anyway. There are lots of launchers available at Google Play and some of these eat up your RAM. I tried a couple of them including GoLauncherEX that needs more plugin to be downloaded before settling for Apex Launcher pro. This app entirely changes your entire homescreen and lets you customize it to taste. You can have more apps on your scrollable dock, add cool transition effects, install great looking themes. In short, it the best app to customize your phone’s UI. There’s a free version and as expected, there are limitations you may not really like.
