The best Android apps of 2019

The best Android apps of 2019

With millions of apps on the Play Store, searching for the best among them is daunting. Whether you need a great weather app or a new tool to speed up your productivity, there are always dozens available. We’ve spent hours curating the top Android apps for every purpose and compiled only the best of them into one list.

Jump to section:

Editor's Choice: our favorites of 2019

Over the years, some titles have been dropped from this list, as they are overshadowed by new contenders or fall behind in updates or features. Newer, better apps have taken their place. Yet, some apps still hang on to the top spot tenaciously. To create a little more space for new blood, we asked our editorial staff which new apps changed their lives in 2019. Here's what stood out:

Google Trips

Recommended by David McCourt

The Trips app has been around for a while but has Google rolled out a huge update that dramatically improved this app for me. It pulls information from Maps, Flights, Hotels and Gmail - there are times when the all-seeing, all-knowing Google data gathering machine is useful - to give you tailored holiday plans.

What I love about the app is how well curated all of the information is. You really can manage your whole trip from one place - getting an overview of your reservations, providing lists of things to do, as well as information about getting around your destination. You can also download your destinations so that you can access all features offline.

Period Tracker Flo, Pregnancy & Ovulation Calendar

Recommended by Silvia Santos

This period tracking app is really easy to use. Simple and clear. It only offers the essential information and it doesn't bother you with notifications. You enter your period dates and if you want - and for a better analysis of your symptoms - share information about how you feel (mood, sexual activity, exercise, sleep...) with the app.

It offers you related articles with useful facts you need to know more about, in order to improve living with your period. They also dispel some menstruation myths.

When you open the app, you receive information on which phase you are in (ovulation and so on) and it also offers you info about how likely you are to get pregnant. So aside from your period, it is also a good app if you are trying for a baby, informing you about your most fertile days.

Best mobility apps for getting around town

Getting around urban environments is increasingly becoming a struggle with growing populations and crowded public transport networks. Fortunately, there are a couple of brilliant apps that make getting from A to B an absolute breeze.


Who still takes regular taxis? Ride-hauling apps such as Uber and Lyft have revolutionized the way in which we move around our cities. Hailing a cab has never been quicker, easier or cheaper. Sure, Uber has had its problems with local governments and regulators, but you can't knock it as a service.

What's also cool for 2019 is Uber's electric bicycle sharing system, JUMP. The JUMP bikes can be rented directly from the existing Uber app. There's no need to sign up for a new account, and your existing Uber payment method can be used. If the weather is nice, why not ride the route yourself! JUMP is only available in select regions at the moment but will be rolling out to more cities in 2019 and 2020.

Speak freely with these messenger apps for Android

Smartphones are used for messaging even more than for calls, so there are a lot of messaging apps to meet this demand. Here are two of our favorites.


WhatsApp, the ubiquitous chat app, has been installed on over one billion smartphones. It's always improving user experience, adding new features and becoming more secure. What makes it number one? Everyone uses it, simple as that. If you already use WhatsApp, then you should check out our favorite WhatsApp tips and tricks.


No messaging app comes close to the number of users WhatsApp has, but there are some great alternatives out there. Telegram is one of them. The free app has end-to-end encryption, offers group chats and is a pioneer of chatbots. Unlike some other messengers, you can also use it on multiple devices. Read our full review of Telegram here.

Transform your typing with new keyboard apps

Typing on mobile can be frustrating or awkward for many of us, and that's a shame because most users don't think about ditching their default keyboard. Installing a new keyboard can really change your life when it comes to how comfortable you are using your phone.


This keyboard is one of the best for fast, accurate typing. Once you use it for a couple of hours, you realize how useful some of the smaller details are.

Be sure check out some of the extensions like invisible keyboard too — it works surprisingly well. Download it from the Play Store for free now.

If you are looking for a very special virtual keyboard for Android, you will find one here. SwiftKey works wonderfully with tablets, and if you simply want a good Android keyboard, it offers intuitive operation, very good spell checking and word recognition.

Whatever the weather, there's an app to warn you what's coming

There are plenty of great weather apps available. Some are more accurate and better looking than the ones that come pre-installed on your Android device, so they are worth checking out.

Today Weather

One of the simplest weather apps and one of the cleanest in terms of user interface - Today Weather. It's a new offering that really impressed us this year. The app pulls weather data from a source of your choice. Options include popular services such as Weather Underground, AccuWeather and Dark Sky.

You can also set alerts to let you know when it is going to rain or if you'd just like a daily update in the morning.

Weather Underground

Weather Underground is an app specialized in tracking hyper-local weather and temperatures in your area. It uses its own network of around 180,000 private weather stations to achieve this. Predictions have a good record of accuracy and warn you of rain in the surrounding area.

Weather Underground even has advice for your hobbies and activities. / © NextPit

Weather Underground is free of charge, but displays ads. This can be deactivated for one year through a $1.99 in-app purchase.

Shoot and edit like a pro with these photo apps for Android


PhotoDirector is the whole package. It has everything you could possibly need to edit your photos. The tools range from simple text bubbles and filters, to more complex things, such as HSL and curves. They're all heavily adjustable, helping you get the best out of your photos.

Snapseed is Google's own photo editing app and basically comes with everything, for free. It offers all sorts of filters and optimization tools. Whether trimming, applying filters or correcting colors, Snapseed offers a powerful picture editor for your needs.

Snapseed also saves your pictures in a separate folder - that way you don't need to modify the original image. Apps like Dropbox or Google Photos can also be synchronized with Snapseed.

Find and play your jam with these great music apps

Downloading free music

Google Play Music is our favorite app for downloading free music right now. It provides a totally legit, ever-changing list of free tracks from major artists to download.

Spotify has an excellent paid subscription service, and SoundCloud has a multitude of tracks readily available to stream. However, for actually downloading tracks to your phone, Google Play Music is as good as you can get. 

Best music player

While the default music apps on your Android device probably do a fine job, if you want to crank up the bass or other aspects of your music, you'll need something more.

We recommend Poweramp. It’s a great way to enjoy your favorite music, with a ton of options and support for almost any type of file. You can’t go wrong with it.

With themes galore, Poweramp can be whatever you want it to be. Just grab a new skin ASAP. / © NextPit

Chill with our favorite apps for movies and TV


You cannot compile a list of the best apps for movies and TV without mentioning Netflix. The service is a social and cultural phenomenon, and the Netflix app is really rather decent. The selection is enormous and the streaming quality is excellent. The biggest advantage of it has over its rivals, however, is the ever-increasing selection of exclusive content and Netflix Originals movies and TV shows. You'll need a paid account to watch though, of course.


Hulu is an excellent app for watching movies and TV shows for free on Android. It's a free service that relies on ads, but there are some great shows available. You need to pay a subscription fee to access all of the content, but there is a range of excellent shows available without a subscription, including classic comedies such as Family Guy, Seinfeld and South Park. 


Crackle is a hugely popular free app, which is updated monthly with new TV shows and movies. Created by Grouper but later bought by Sony, the app features ads which run at regular intervals throughout the content. The trade-off is that you get an excellent selection of media and a well-maintained app.

Crackle, like Netflix or Amazon, has picked up some original content that's getting more popular. 

Make your phone a fortress with security and antivirus apps

Sophos Free Antivirus and Security

Sophos consistently ranks high on watchdogs such as AV-Test. In addition to perfect protection, it offers a varied feature set. The highlight: the app is totally free, even from ads (Sophos makes its money from business customers). Malware protection is based on an online database that also checks the reputation of individual apps and recommends alternatives.

The app also includes theft protection. It allows you to remotely control your smartphone by SMS from other phone numbers you specify. Child protection filters, call blockers and device encryption complete the package. Of all the antivirus apps out there, Sophos stands out as the best deal for most users.

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware

Malwarebytes is a free app that does one job really well - protecting your phone from malware - and it does so with a bloat-free, minimalist interface and well-chosen options.

As well as offering malware detection, there's also a handy privacy audit feature that scans apps installed on your phone and breaks them down into different categories. This allows you to get a simple and quick overview of all the apps on your phone.

Personalize your Android

Action Launcher 

Launchers offer a simple way to customize the look and feel of your Android phone. They often combine new icons, a new app drawer layout, a fresh homescreen and a change of wallpaper to make your device fit a certain style or theme.

You have to try them out to appreciate how fun they can be. The one we recommend right now is Action Launcher. This is a free and excellent introduction to launchers because it provides clear and intuitive interface changes without adding so many options that it becomes off-putting.  The latest edition brings many of the best features of the Google Pixel launcher and Android Pie to any compatible (Android 5+) smartphone.

Nova Launcher

Nova is a great alternative launcher that lets you customize the entire look and feel of your operating system - from changes to font size, to the number of apps that can appear on the lock screen, to the way in which your app drawer scrolls.

If you wish you could make a few simple changes to your current interface, then give the free version of Nova a try. Nova even lets you adopt the look of any other phone - Galaxy, Xperia, HTC, LG, even iOS if that's your thing.

Let your phone help you find that special someone

Online dating has come a long way from the easy punchline it used to be. Nowadays it's pretty common to meet that special someone on a dating app. However long your connection might last, you need a good app to get started in the dating game. Here our favorites.

Tinder for the sheer number of potential matches

For those who wish to jump straight into the larger dating pool, Tinder is a massive app with tons of potential matches available. It's claimed that 26 million matches happen on Tinder every day. 

Tinder is mostly free, but if you want to get some premium features you will need to pay. However, it is entirely possible to use Tinder without these and have a great dating experience for free.

Bumble: from female-friendly dating to all-round networking

Bumble burst onto the scene with an interesting take on the dating app format. Women make the first move. The app has since expanded to become a hub for professional networking and platonic friendship, so if you want to meet new people in all aspects of your life, it's a nice one-stop shop. But the main use is still its dating format.

For women who are frustrated with tons of messages by men who barely look at their profiles, or men who get stuck on trying to craft that perfect opening line, this can be a great way to make dating less stressful (of course, for women seeking women, it's basically online dating as usual, and men seeking men are still best served with Grindr).

Get (and stay) fit with health and fitness apps

Of course, you might want to tone up a little for all that dating you're going to do with the above apps. Or maybe you just need a little help with motivation or organization when it comes to keeping in shape. Fitness apps are great because you can keep your device close to you while you're on the move. Let's take a look at the best.

RunKeeper for a comprehensive experience

RunKeeper has a good reputation, not just for the number of features in its own app, but also the number of third-party services it plugs into (it works with both Google Fit and Apple Health). If you're a keen runner, there aren't many better options than this one.

You can plan your runs on a map via GPS tracking, monitor distance covered and calories burned, set personal goals, integrate your indoor activities and more. Despite the name, this app can handle bike rides and gym workouts as well as running, so it's a comprehensive monitoring app.

Don't underestimate the power of community. There are social aspects to the app as well. You can share achievements with your friends, join and create running groups and use the chat feature to keep each other motivated. The app is free, but also has ads and optional in-app purchases.

Google Fit for simplicity

Google's own health and fitness app is tightly integrated with Android and Android Wear. It's also full of features. Weight, heart rate, steps and activity time can all be logged automatically and you can set simple daily goals, as well as get an alert when you've reached them.

In addition to real-time stats, Google Fit will also give you personalized recommendations and coaching to help you reach your goals.

Never forget with the most useful note-taking apps

Taking notes with your smartphone is one of the most simple functions, but it is also one of the most useful. Whether you need to make a quick shopping list, have just been told about a movie and don't want to forget its name, or if you've seen a product that you want to look up later, a good note-taker is an essential app for every Android user.

Evernote for the ultimate cross-platform note-taking

Evernote is a legendary note-taking app. It’s easy to use and comes with some really cool features including voice commands. You can also take a note and view it on your lock screen or smartwatch. Evernotes are also available across multiple devices, including on desktop. You can also find notes based on your location if you are near to where you took the note in the first place. There is a Plus version available for $2.99 a month and a Premium version for $5.99, but the free version is great as well.

Google Keep for simplicity that works

Keep is Google’s pre-installed note-taking app, and it’s one of our favorites. You can take notes in a variety of ways, by either typing on your keyboard, writing with your finger, taking a quick photo or by recording a voice message. All of your notes are then synced with your Gmail account, so you can access them across several Google services. The search function is especially cool, as it can find words that you have written freehand as well as typed.

    For note Taking purpose I use Microsoft's "OneNote". I find it more versatile, powerful and free from the kind of restrictions imposed by Evernote in its freemium model. Further, Microsoft will exist in continuity in foreseeable future while there is no guarantee for Evernote.

  • I think, WhatsApp is the most popular one in the list. Its very useful communication app which almost everyone uses in regular basis.

  • Recommended years ago on AndroidPit (and still using):

    Security Master
    Nova Launcher

  • The best diary for personal space, ideas and creativity - Diary Lifestyle.

  • How does someone recommend McAfee and Avast and still go home to their family at night and look them in the eyes?

  • I am a simple man. I see McAfee on a "best apps" list and I cringe. Avast is good, probably the best aside from Kaspersky; good for those who believe politicians enough to distrust Kaspersky. I'd also highly recommend Malwarebytes to everyone, as a secondary protection.

    There are other underwhelming picks that I'd love to argue, but seriously, McAfee? "Best Apps"? Eww.

  • Your article is very much incomplete.don't include the privacy stuff.many app needs location, login to work. Then how can this be best.this info is not true to the best.frankly speaking boring.

  • Sorin Dec 15, 2017 Link to comment

    PhotoDirector is exactly the application I needed. Thanks.

  • Kustom Live Wallpaper, or KLWP might be the single most amazing app for customizing your phone ever created. There is a learning curve but if you like to theme your phone there is no question this is the way to go.
    It's like uccw and Zooper combined, on steroids with next to no battery drain. It has absolutely endless possibilities, it's updated constantly and has an amazing community on G+ as well as tons of videos on YouTube showing how to use it. You can also download professional and amazing looking themes from the Play Store to load onto it if you don't want to make your own.

  • I use an app called 'Uplift' for tracking the stock market. It's pretty simple but it's really easy!

  • great work

  • Thanks for sharing.

    For music streaming, Audials is fantastic!
    Available for many platforms, but free, no ads Android app in playstore is great. Over one hundred thousand stations, & podcasts. Best feature, recording while listening or scheduled recording in the background. Only broadcast stations have the usual ads, but I rarely hear any on the streams I choose.

  • Updated: Lot of good ones here, some will be contentious. I dropped Open Camera and adopted Snap Camera HDR (Marginz) as default app because it includes customizable GUI with presets, and JPEG controls for wavelet denoise, along and sliders for sharpening, saturation and contrast. I keep comfortable, familiar Camera FV-5 for lossless PNG format. Snap and Bacon Camera actually force my Camera1 API phone to make good lossless DNGs. The main keyboard feature I want is a simple extra row of numbers across the top instead of long press or a second board - several good ones have it.

    In Canada the only reliable weather source is Environment Canada, and Fish & Whistle's nicely made free Canada Weather is the only app to link to it. Users with public library cards should see what apps the library provides free - I use Hoopla - 9 downloads/month no charge - surprised at the number of movies I like (offers TV, music and comics as well). Several ereading apps (OverDrive, RBDigital, PressReader), Naxos Jazz and Music streaming, etc. all of which are free with a library number, subscription charges without. You guys might want to do a report on free public library apps for your readers.

  • Best Lock Screen? LOL. Not updated since... February. We've all moved on to Microsoft Launcher.

  • Yes. All of these are great apps and useful for an Android Devices. But i also like to mention another app called "WiFiKill Pro".

    I think it is one of the best app in controling wifi network. Any one can easily monitor his/her network. As well as can kick or block unwanted user or device. you can check here ->

  • The best app of 2017 is Writelight. Writelight has 200 prompts for freewriting. There are prompts for creative thinking, reflection on career and life issues, special prompts for bad and good mood. It will help you to start journaling and will make you a better person eventually.

  • Skype is also becoming very popular now. in my openion it is on number 2 after Whatsapp.

  • Why weren't social apps added to above list ? I think social apps are most popular category for each app store. I want to add an app called "NearBy" to social category. I have tried to using this app and realized that NearBy is better than most known social apps. I can see Instagram and Twitter posts, photos and videos located near me. So meeting new people in the same neighbourhood is possible via this app I think. You can try and say thanks to me :) this is the app

  • Sorry, but Fleksy doesn't seem to be very user friendly. So I can't change the language while writing a message.
    And it continuously insists in wrongly auto correcting the words typed in. It's really not funny...

  • I don't see how to store favorite places in HERE Maps. Does anyone know that? Thanks

  • Wow, wonderful apps to use on a mobile is a small world.......................If anyone wants to sell their android mobile they can search on this pluslogin website.

  • the best android app in india is share it. hahahaha lolz..... no phone without share it

  • Google might be doing well with Android, but to help consumers out more with there phones batterylife, why? Don't the include the "Exit"option for All applications created, as consumers can become very angry with there phone or experience with Android, you can think you have finished using some applications but there still running in the background and its in your mind thinking, Why? is my battery draining, even though you have not used anything on your phone

  • There are countless platforms available in the market but android is the first choice in App Development Industry. android is an open source platform and multiple applications can be used by Android App Developers without any licence fee. we at our app development company agicent also work a lot on android app development and would be glad to speak more.

  • You can try Eject - Android Apps on Google PlayThe Eject App, it is currently trending in the USA, it is a Video Uploading App and they have added lots of Categories to upload a Video. You can gain Fans for your art and it can be used to do both, upload and surf through videos of Talented Individuals. This one is for art lovers.

  • I think, you forget to include cache cleaning apps. why these are so important? because these apps are the only thing who can save my mobile's memory and maintain my battery otherwise my mobile will getting slow and junk files will harm my phone's battery and processor. IMHO, this can be cause of your mobile death. My top 5 cache cleaning apps are:

    Nitro Boost and Cleaner
    Clean Cache - Optimize
    App Cache Cleaner - 1Tap Clean
    CM Speed Booster丨Cache Cleaner

    • I'll definitely try this! I'm not a fan of having 100 apps. Thank you

      • HERMIT .That's the app you are looking for.Try to buy it (less than 5 $) instead of going with a free version to unlock its full potential.All my shopping apps- Amazon ,E bay etc as well as others like Facebook,Twitter ,Deviant-art ...they are all now within HERMIT. Polyneed seems to be a startup app built with the Indian consumer in mind (only 100 downloads ).Hermit is an app with history and the number of people using it is very high .It's now polished and has Ad-blocking ,Fullscreen and a bevy of seemingly useless features .Why don't they (Androidpit geeks) put it here ,I wonder...

    It seems you have done a deep research on the topic. Here, I am sharing an app for share market investors & traders.
    The app name is TRADEIT. I am using this app from past few months and earned a good profit through their advice.
    Hope this helps!

  • Thanks for great app tips. I will comment though that I think jetaudio plus player has better audio quality than poweramp. Poweramp has arguably a better interface, but for playing music IMHO jetaudio has better audio playback and amazing extra purchased add ons.

  • There’s this awesome app called GrabPoints. In a nutshell they pay you for trying out new apps and answering a couple of surveys. I love using it because they are always active on social media giving out points and the rewards are always fair. Like just for signing up you already get $1 then if you use a friend’s invite code you get 500 PTS and easy AND your friend gets points in return too! See even simply inviting people earns you money. If you ever happen to try GRABPOINTS please use my invite code: S6FMAC Hope this helps!

  • Hi , I worked for more than 1 year by myself for this app:
    and due to a lot of download farms, my app is useless.
    It doesn't matter if you do a great app, useful and you work hard because no one will know about it.
    This promoting stuff is becoming impossible for those without money to invest in.

    • I took a look at your app and I must say, it stinks. Instead of wasting money on promotion, create a fun and engaging game.

  • Its funny to see you guys have missed so many insanely beautiful apps like "ReadyGo weather app" etc.

  • <a href="http:/" I Need to free download </a>

  • that is huge list

  • MY two favorite apps is 1) Snoopsnitch.apk which monitors your phone for hacking use systems such as "Stingray" and "Dirtybox". 2) PrecisionGPS.apk uses an array of satellites to pinpoint your GPS. I compared it to my parcel information and it was spot on.

  • There is no app for the network scanning

  • 10 Must Have Apps For Your Android Phone..!!

  • Nice List. , I have found one new app "Funny Droid" . Same as imgur.

  • Sorry but X-plore is THE BEST file manager out there and it's totally free. You should give it a try cause I tried many myself and would never change it.

    • you should also try Total launcher... A very powerful and customizable launcher (maybe too much).

  • Found out this super useful new location-based app called "Getmii"!

    Introduced by my university friend in Boston! You can instantly ask for what you need to people around you! (for example, any kind of advice, student and classes information, apartment looking, internship seeking, etc...) You can probably make a sell/purchase by doing this as well! Check it out! It's really interesting!

  • Cool list. But consider adding Weblifier. You can bookmark this page and automatically get notified of any new comments. You can bookmark Any Facebook or forum post to follow the development. You can automatically find and browse rss feeds on a bookmark. You can see, browse and bookmark all the alexa top websites. You can search Google and amazon and Yahoo and YouTube from a single page and have them open in new tabs; so you can keep searching. You can do wonderful BRAND NEW things with Weblifier. This app should make the list, clearly...

    Hi guys,

    Check out the new Shift It app from Macondo Software Labs designed to help you with your weekly schedule. It's extremely helpful, easy to use and pleasing to the eye!

  • I absolutely love parental control apps because they are great for my chilren and I can tell it's a top suggestion you have there. Another one I could recommend is studylock

  • Please advise how we can get our Lock Screen App reviewed.
    It allows users to unlock their Android smartphone with their Instagram photos as a memorable and secure way of protecting their phone.
    The clever bit is the security where the keypad uses the same photos but they are in a different order each time the user logs in. This turns the same password sequence into a one-time password for every login.
    It can be downloaded from Google's Play Store by searching 'IconLogin' or from our website
    Thanks for any advice.

  • you forgot about Business Card Reader Base CRM app. it will help to quickly create a contact with a business card in your phone, gmail or CRM system. Supports voice memos. This app saves my time not one time.

  • Jim Jun 15, 2016 Link to comment

    There are a number of apps you've missed like Pi music player it has bass boost an EQ and an built in ring tone maker that works quite well. Far and away the best launcher is Apex. I've tried just about all of them and Apex is the best IMHO. ES Global removed the adds. I like ES file explorers functionality and the look of the classic theme (which is not available in the pro version sadly). The biggest plus for me is it handles the handoff of streaming video over my LAN from a windows share to the VLC app seamlessly. Sorry it's not getting uninstalled on my phone. If you like live wallpaper Earth-Moon pro is awesome. Also if you like to lock apps away from prying eyes Smart Applock pro is the best there is. I like the feature where it takes the intruders picture when they can't guess your passcode/pattern. Rotation Control by CrapeMyrtle is a very good rotation control program that places it's control mechanism in your notification drop down. Also has app rotation protection that won't let apps rotate the screen. The only app missing on this list is a good alternative to the stock phone app. All the ones I have tried are lacking.

    • How often do you think you'll catch someone trying to access the locked apps? Don't you use a lock screen password? Do you often have strangers (or anyone else you might know) accessing your device?

      These apps can be useful to alleviate paranoia but in reality the majority of users should have no need to waste storage and resources by installing these types of apps.

      Peace ✌

  • This article have been a blessing, I found it educative and interesting to read. Also some of the Apps suggested, have been downloaded and put use by me which made browsing easier through use of such apps. Thanks

  • A good list of useful and best apps on playstore for android devices. I would also request you to try this amazing app which is very useful for chatting to people nearby you anonymously and at the same you can also give reviews about places near you and also ask people about how the place is before visiting..... Tha name of App is "HoHooChat" you can download it from playstore by just searching "HoHooChat" on playstore.

  • Luka Jun 3, 2016 Link to comment

    Headline wallpaper (the raindrops on what appears to be a Note 4) please ;)

  • Very important post. I generally use the Dasher Messenger.Thanks for this.

  • I only use Chrome and Drive from the list - I would disagree with every other entry.

    Though I definitely disagree with the file Manager section - X-plore is without doubt the best.

    Music player - Playerpro again without doubt the best

    It's difficult to gauge the rest of the list, are you paid to promote the above mentioned apps? Or are they apps that you genuinely use everyday?

    Peace ✌

  • AntiVirus app? Really?

    Come on Androidpit, give us a list of viruses on Android. Better still, scribe a well-researched article about viruses on Android. You could could start by explaining how Android uses a 'sandbox' to run apps and what the pros and cons of this approach are.

    Research might be somewhat challenging for your writers, I suspect.

  • Sandy Jun 2, 2016 Link to comment

    Its all the same list every time very disappointed 😞

  • Alex Jun 1, 2016 Link to comment

    I am sorry cant agree with the launcher Nova launcher prime is the best launcher made for Android so far.Antivirus apps dont work as helpful as they do in pcs and android has inbuilt security Google scans the app thats been installed or before installing for viruses so i dont think antivirus app helps.I dont agree with the Google drive as cloud storage is not safe as already google steals our data Its better to download tresorit which is safe as it offers end to end encryption for file uploading and downloading as well and more than millions of people tried to hack it but they couldnt they are so strong that they offer $50,000 for who hacks it and also ES FILE MANAGER OR EXPLORER PRO IS BEST NO MATTER WHAT.

    • Agree on action launcher 3, its just a money grab by the developer. just read the comments/review on google play and you can see its abandon, the last update was last year and all the problems highlighted by its users were ignored. very soon there will be ACTION LAUNCHER 4 and you will need to PAY ONE MORE TIME!
      How can andoidpit recommend abandon ware? Disappointed.......

  • Now, this game is best to kill free time and is The Best if you read the description of the game.
    It's called ' Real Run 2 - Go Nuts ' . available on android

  • Great list indeed .. Can I suggest that you add application for monitoring and tracking ?

  • Quipsphere is the mobile app for sharing ideas, comments and opinions in the form of recorded voice message.. way better than twitter in my opinion.

  • Checkout an app named "Bucker" it's really cool!! You can get all things done is just one app, do a recharge, book a cab, compare prices and buy stuff online and so much more. Worth trying!

  • I refuse to use Google play music app anymore...won't let you download your music and if you activate too many devices you are out of luck. They let you deactivate once as a courtesy...But I trade phones every couple of months.

  • Is there no app for remainder like evernote or anything?

  • There’s this awesome app called GrabPoints. In a nutshell they pay you for trying out new apps and answering a couple of surveys. I love using it because they are always active on social media giving out points and the rewards are always fair. Like just for signing up you already get $1 then if you use a friend’s invite code you get 500 PTS and easy AND your friend gets points in return too! See even simply inviting people earns you money. If you ever happen to try GRABPOINTS please use my invite code: S6FMAC Hope this helps!

  • Wow that's pretty cool list, even some of the apps I've never heard of them. Thanks for these gems.

  • For unknown apps category, I think the mention above is a bit dated. So many great entrants; especially Nestob. This app will give you all the best websites in the world, grouped by country or categories. It's not a search engine but a search device (you have less control but it just works great and does what you need for the most part). Not only will you find your information but you will find many more exciting stuff to learn or do online. And it's free!

  • Nik G. Apr 23, 2016 Link to comment

    I'm curious. I was using the DU apps for quite some time. The better reviews are coming from experts. Others are just quite confusing. Anything you could let me know about this company? They seem to be growing in numbers quite fast. Any real info would GREATLY be appreciated.

  • Nik G. Apr 23, 2016 Link to comment

    I don't know. I'm seeing lots of great stuff. Thanks for taking the time to educate (or attempt to ) the masses. I know I'm humbled by ALL knowledge, and the fact that we (ALL ) don't know EVERYTHING.

  • Take a look at the pushnshake personal safety app. On the Google play store.. So simple a child could use it.

  • Indeed is indeed the crappiest app I have used. How could you possibly include that one? :/

  • This was a waste of time. Read the entire, directed to another page, read more, and I did not get even one app name! Just another wanna be "guru" that talks like if he was a skilled it, but at the end he just talks...

  • I can't believe that App Delay by DGApps was not included. It is the best app for launching apps with delays, very useful.

  • Hi. Had one unexpected problem with pocket when I used it... it saved to the cloud only links to web stuff seen or read, rather than accepting snippets or saving snapshots. So something I read six weeks ago and want to come back to in pocket... may have disappeared! The webpage amended, updated or deleted, could mean pocket content Lost! Now I use Telegram or Podio for maintaining constancy.

  • Chrome is the best app? It's strange for me. In my opinion Opera, Delphin etc are better.

  • good collection of awesome apps, thanks for sharing

  • Check out the Pushnshake personal safety app at the play store. . So simple a child can use it.

  • Hey hi Scott , You have recognized our app Videoder under the header "Best app you won't find in the Play Store" . First of all many thanks for the recognition. But there's one major issue you have mistakenly GIVEN THE WRONG LINK UNDER OUR NAME . Please update the correct link as soon as possible . Here's the correct link . Also we could provide you with the latest screenshots the app if you would like to update them. Waiting for your reply.

  • Thanks great apps info ,
    here is another one must try!

  • Hulu? I thought I heard something about them sharing private information of it's users.
    Es File Explorer. Even though I've been using it for years I can't say I'm too happy with the developer. They crippled their app not too long ago so users would buy the pro version. What they should have done was offer more features for the pro version. The pro version is well worth $4.
    For cloud storage app I use Es File Explorer and whatever cloud service I want.
    Next Lock Screen, according to the Play Store reviews, latest update is not good.

  • Thanks for great app tips. I will comment though that I think jetaudio plus player is better audio quality then poweramp. Poweramp has arguably a better interface, but for playing music IMHO jetaudio has better audio playback and amazing extra purchased dsp add ons.

    Thanks for great article.

  • Here is my list: 1. 1Weather 2. Flipagram 3. Tiny Scanner 4. Photo Grid 5. Musixmatch

  • Good list - I'd have an alternative here or there. I have to say the only reliable weather service for Canada is Environment Canada, and pretty graphics are no substitute for getting the forecast right. A bright young developer in Halifax called Fish&Whistle has really outdone the government in providing a polished, efficient and configurable app for Environment Canada.

  • Great article and great apps !! I also would like to share my recent game : "Hard To Tap" Please try it and give your feedback

  • I didn't see a category for Best Deals App, which helps people to find the best deals. There are many daily deals apps or coupon apps, but here is a very different one: DealsWatchDog. ( The idea is that you enter what product you want to buy and the current market price for the product, the app will monitor many popular market places 24x7 for the product. If it noticed a better price than the price entered, it will notify the user for the deal. Think about the particular lawn mower you wanted to buy but in no hurry so you decided to wait until there was a sale...

    Disclaimer: I'm the developer of this new Android app.

  • These are really great apps. However, if you just want to get a music player for your songs, then check out this beautiful music player app

  • Why is Circle Guess not mentioned here? It is the most recent ground-breaking app for children yet it wasn't mentioned here. It's an easy app for toddlers and up which supposedly teaches them less and greater than numbers. We must not forget that the value of apps for kids rely mainly on how educational it is. Fun and educational must be the benchmark for all children's app. For more info about how to get your kids learn from having fun, download Circle Guess on Appstore, Playstore, or Amazon Appstore.

  • I think is Es file explorer is the best file manager..for me.

  • I recommend "Tablica Mendelejewa"for Android.

  • Let's try Floating Web Browser, a multitasking browser that can use over other apps like popup window. It will save your time from switching between apps.

    • I use app called "Floating Toucher" it puts a floating button app on every screen, when pressed it opens up into a options wheel. You can customise it with many different options/apps/shortcuts.

  • Thanks for this list!! I have been traveling since 2002 and that time technology was not so advanced and we didn't have mobile applications to help while traveling and now there are so many applications that i sometimes get lost in the crowd searching for which are the best. Your list is a good consolidation of best apps!!

    From past 2 years I have been using a travel diary called Roadlike. Roadlike is an app that lets me document my day to day moments. It is simple & innovative diary & works in OFFLINE MODE. It is one of my favorite app because it allows me to capture my daily moments & check in at places even in offline with exact locations tagged to it, few photos or a short video and small memory notes.

    Also, it does this well when I am in offline mode (due to bad internet connection while travelling to remote areas or traveling internationally).

    Link to their website is -

    They are available on iOS - and

    Android platform -

    Also, following are my top 6 good travel apps which i use:

    Expensify for managing expense;
    Roadlike for capturing travel moments with check ins, capturing locations, photos & videos;
    PackPoint for not missing out on any item to pack before traveling;
    TripAdvisor for recommendations of hotels & restaurants;
    Expedia for booking travels; and
    Pocket for reading while traveling - works in offline.

  • Mat97 Nov 10, 2015 Link to comment

    I also recommend this app/game, i 've found it really addicitive. It's called ABABA

  • thanks for sharing nice aap list.
    I m using "IPro Habit Tracker" for tracking the habits in android and iphone. Also its streak representation is best based on filter.

    I like database backup and restore functionality of the application. Specially see backup file from document directory which is in decoding format, it is best for security purpose.

  • push-bullet is better than pocket and few more are missing.

  • Tasker

  • Damn that was a good list! You know there's actually an app called Phone Meter to track the number of times you touch your phone in a day. The crazy part is when you start comparing your numbers with your friends'! Look for the blue fist icon

  • I would argue that ShowBox is the best for TV show and Movie streaming. Yes you can't get it from the Play Store. But it still is much better then Hulu

    • Be aware though that showbox & popcorntime are illegal - you are downloading copyrighted material which if certain authorities find out could mean a loss of Internet (banned) fines or worse.

      Though it is unlikely that they would bother with small time users. It's good to be aware...

      Peace ✌

    It seems like just yesterday that Instagram was adding video. Then direct messaging. And now the image sharing service that made us all fall in love with filters brings enhanced photo editing features that let it compete with the likes of Snapseed. What hasn't changed is the passionate userbase sharing incredible photos from around the world.

    Although my favorite hands down is still ( its basically a way for you to uninstall apps from android. Highly recommended adding this to the list too.

  • I haven't used these apps that you have shared. Perhaps I should get my hands on those two as well. Currently I'm using Weather Mate which provides pretty accurate and reliable weather updates. It has nice features such as interactive weather maps, personal weather stations, weather history, travel planner, severe weather alerts and plenty more. I'm happy with it but would definitely try those ones as well.

  • Hi, try out this new app. It's called "We're arriving", and it's a location-based alarm manager. The idea is help people that often go to unknown places, or frequently use public transport and enjoy being distracted by a book, music, landscape or take a good nap. Now they can rest assured that the We're arriving will notify them when entering the alarm trigger area. Check it out at

    I've been using a few of these from quite some time. I must say you've got many areas covered. There's just one suggestion I'd like to make. Though it's pretty new, you must still give it a go. You'd surprised pleasantly as I was. It's a music player named Solo Music Player. It won't be wrong to say that it's among the most beautiful android apps I've ever seen. It is too good to be missed out.

    Please don't recommend AVG. It's a mediocre antivirus at best, and they've recently come out and flat out told people they were going to sell their personal info to make up for the fact they're using a free AV. If anything, an AV like Avast, F-Secure, Trend Micro or Webroot would be a much better suggestion.

  • What an awesome list! A lot of these are already my favorites so I trust your taste and I have several of the recommendations downloading as I type. I've been using Smart Launcher for a few years now and won't use anything else. Same with Swiftkey keyboard which I will put aside for now to test out your recommendation of Flesky. Always gotta try new apps and make sure your favorites aren't outdated ideas that have been improved on by someone else. Usually when I try to find articles like this, I find ones that are simply people being paid to promote an app. This list seems like legit research has gone into it and honest opinion. Great work!

  • Did not suggest an Android transfer app. Wireless transfer your staff to PC , like AirMore. A free and utility app.

  • Catsup - Ask the world, anonymously. A great free app for questions you can't.

  • I suggest Camera MX as camera app. For people who are not into tons of vintage filters it also free (like 360)

  • Search for Pronounce IT app by APPortunity on playstore. Its a really amazing application!

  • Ask any questions to this app which is world's first answering engine The Light App . The app gives answers to any of ur questions from the web and from experts saving your time which you spend on the net searching for answers

  • I am going to try out some of these new apps. I'm a 58 year old woman and phone scares me I have a galaxy 4. I am excited about but I decided to try out except for PLENTY OF FISH. POF. I found so many scammers. But, that I know about and can pick them out right away.
    But, I love all the tips you give. Helps to know if you are using the app right.

  • I suggest DroidSms, is very useful and well designed

  • This is a cool list. Though I don't agree so much with VLC player. Though it's an awesome player, I like MX player a lot better.
    Thanks for sharing Scott Adam Gordon

  • David tmo galaxy s5 on lollipop 5.1.1 will not send text messages. Need

  • Helpful. Thanks

  • UniQ Mobile Finder is the best android application to save your stolen smartphone and protect your personal info from unwelcome intruders.

      stop ur marketing

      • Lotus, may be he is marketing but it is a great app. Thanks Aditya, for for posting your comment, great to know about this new app.

      • lotus you just shut up please. i think that's a best app who are you to stop me expressing my feelings. btw I saw here someone commented about that app and downloaded and found it useful.

  • Mr. Editor. It was really nice to know about the information you have shared and all of this information was helpful too. But i have a querry. It keeps bugging me about safety of the android devices when it comes to using a third party app or an app store. So how do you justify that your suggestion to use an alternate for "google play store" called "slide me" will have no breach which would affect the users? I want to use it but since i am more conscious with the security issues, i am asking you this. Hope you don't mind. Please reply with your valuable suggestions.

    • TubeMate gives multiple warnings about there being virus-laden versions out there on the 'Net, and to download it from a reputable source. I had used it before, downloaded from the app store at Amazon. But the last time I updated the app, it asked me to please log into my Google account, which it had never done before. So, already it didn't feel right. I typed maybe one or two characters of my Google password, when I noticed that my password text was completely visible (i.e. it was a cleartext form field). This was clearly a sign of phishing, as the true Google login always masks the password text with asterisks. I immediately exited the app and uninstalled it. My advice: be very careful downloading from third party sources. If you do use them, carefully read reviews and comments, and pay attention to the app's behavior. If something doesn't feel right, it probably isn't. Uninstall.

  • play store

  • Full Battery Alarm Pro is an android app developed by Replay Creation which sounds an alarm once the battery is fully charged so that user can unplug the charger cable to avoid overcharging.

  • I have been using Swype keyboard for a long time now. Its auto correct feature makes it faster than using the predictive text feature of SwiftKey. It works very well with fat fingers too! LOL


  • Ankit Jun 8, 2015 Link to comment

    Uniq mobile finder is a great app and deserve to be in the list because of its stunning features for getting back the lost or stolen mobile phone.

  • I haven’t tried most of the stuff on your list. But I recently downloaded this app called GrabPoints and so far I’m liking it. They have lots of offers in a day and the surveys aren’t long. Points given out are quite high and they’re fair about giving the points. Oddly enough they always give out points on their social media accounts too! hahaha! Anyway here’s my invite code: S6FMAC you get 50PTS right away for using it. If you download GRABPOINTS you get 1$ just for signing up. You guys have to try it.

  • Musicxmatch is also a good app for music lovers

  • I'll take cheetah over dolphin any day & while it's not for everyone, Novakey is the best keyboard.

  • Android apps are just amazing and they are a big help in our daily lifestyle especially in the technology and entertainment aspect.

  • I think there needs to be a category for best Android wear app.

  • drupe has opened a beta community "drupers"! Join in if you wish to explore new features ahead of everyone else, and take part in shaping the future of drupe https: //

  • I am using proofhub these days to manage my work. It's the best android app I have used for my work. I'd suggest you guys to check it out as well.

  • Where is "UNIQ MOBILE FINDER" in the list, Its one of the best app people must have in their android device. Using which people never lost their phone again. You can save your stolen smartphone and protect your personal info from unwelcome intruders. Must use app.

    • Its newly launched application but I loved it so much and its really having great features like taking intruders photo, video, phone location, tracking the phone and having almost all features to get back your lost mobile phone. other than that it has other features like get the contact backup in your mail, send the intruder details through SMS if you dont have internet connection and triggers the alarm if anybody move the phone without you knowledge. Its created by a small kid from India and hope its going to be one of best application in android market. Hope to see the some unique app also on the list soon.

      UNIQ MOBILE FINDER is a great app to get back your lost or stolen mobile. It has really cool features. Its one of the best app every android device should have. This is going to be one of the most popular app in market soon.

    • UNIQ MOBILE FINDER is deserve to be in this list. I totally agree with you.

  • Just wondering why there are no money making apps here? I'd like to suggest GrabPoints it's relatively new but it's a great contender to beat the outstanding SwagBucks reign. UX and UI is very streamlined and well thought of. Now they're beginning to be very active on social media giving out points all the time. Use my promocode when you check it out and you get 50PTS right off the bat: S6FMAC

  • Why there is no ArkMC, a streaming media center. Multi-functional application with YouTube streaming. Maybe you need not to choose only by the ratings, but by a try yourself.

  • Well, there are too many apps that are missing in this article. For example Mailwise - An Android email exchange app that can help you Sync your mail account for Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync, Outlook, Hotmail, Yahoo, AOL, GMX,, MSN, Gmail and even IMAP in seconds.

    • Robert you are correct. There are many applications who deserves to be in the list. Mailwise is a great app and it should be in the list of best app. And at the same time UNIQ MOBILE FINDER, A great concept by a small kid who deserve to be in the list because of his excellence. Awesome application.

  • Wow it's amazing and perfect. Best video app it's awesome.

  • You can also add Noom Coach to the fitness club. It has got a brilliant look and is too well organized. And what about CM Security? it does more than what you want it to do. Its time to refresh your list by adding the new apps :P

  • Cools apps loved the Magic Locker Main app !! I discovered one more cool app which saves alot of my time when I want to find something on the net . The app acts as an expert and finds answer to any of the questions you ask from the net and comes back with in moments with a exact or usable answer saving lot of my timing which i spend on the net searching for answers. The app is named TheLightApp check out its vid on youtube or

  • Check Unique Widgets, it really worth to be in the list

  • You MUST checkout TapIt Launcher. Lets you Tap the back of your phone to perform actions. Makes life better :)

  • I think that the Chrome is the best browser for Android, not the Dolphin browser.

  • WhatsApp phone update were is it I have the latest version but I can't receive the phone update.
    I now have the phone, The WhatsApp is great. Thanks to the people that helped.

  • these are really good apps

  • so ...after seeing that dolphin browser in this article there is no need to complete reading this ... I think it's a joke or just kinda of beginner class article cause when you ignore Firefox browser or chrome you must be kidding us

    isnt it WAY TOO EARLY no matter from which perspective to rate the best <insert something here> of 2015???

    • I was going to say that myself. They can't even say best anything of 2015 Q1

      • My1 Mar 17, 2015 Link to comment

        This is true as well...
        But ganes and such call themselves game of the year or whatever despite it sometimes even being January...
        Or what I already heard "the best whatever of the Millennium or the century" i mean seriously, WTF?

  • Messenger apps makes communication easier and better. They are a must download for easy keeping in touch with your family and friends.

  • I'd recommend Pixel Dungeon or Swipurr cat gallery

  • Look for WWTUNER in Play Store.
    The best Android radio player!

  • Does somebody if Poweramp is compatible with uFXloops? uFXloops is my favourite music creation app, but it has no EQ.

  • Camera360 Ultimate gives you the perfect and most flawless picture. You can also edit it according to your style and taste as it features are diverse.

  • I use Playerpro for my music, it has everything I need (edit, ID3 tags, multi EQ, customised sound settings etc, etc). I would highly recommend it, also X-plore file Manager is a must have!

  • I have had Poweramp of all of my phones for years and just won't use anything else. At sometime though you have to pay for it so be prepared.

  • I'm sick of reading about how good power amp is and me not having it. Time to get it I think
