best android apps

  • Comics – FREE

An excellent app for browsing, buying and enjoying an endless list of comics. The comics you love are only a tap away; no need to go all the way to the comic book shops any more.

  • Evernote – FREE/premium paid monthly plans

Evernote is a handy list keeper, voice recorder, note taker, to-do manager, and web clipper. It’s an open, smart and powerful multi-tool, with tons of amazing features such as optical character recognition (OCR), which can search text in photos. So, when you get someone’s business card, you just need to snap a picture of it and let Evernote do the rest. Easily one of the most popular Play Store applications, and for good reason.

  • Feedly – FREE

Feedly is a nice app for reading news and blog posts on your Android. You can use it to do all your reading in one single app. Or, make it a little bit more stylish using the magazine-style app Flipboard (also free).

  • Google Drive – FREE/additional costs for increased storage

A great cloud storage service with a dual function: it also works as an excellent mobile office suite. It allows you to access your important files from anywhere using your Android device, and collaborate with other people. You can also create new spreadsheets, text files, and presentation documents to make your life easier. You might never use Word or Excel again!

  • Inbox by Gmail – FREE

Google Inbox is among the best Play Store applications for Android. It makes using email easier than ever. Inbox helps you to manage your inbox fast with some great features, such as “Bundles”, which put all your finance, shopping, and unimportant mail in their proper places.

  • LastPass FREE/$12 annually for premium version

A password manager that generates unique, complex passwords for every site or app that requires one. LastPass fills in the correct information when you want to log in to a site or an app. The app is free, but using it on more than one type of device will cost you $12 per year, or $1 per month.

  • PicsArt Photo Studio – FREE

A powerful photo editing app. It has many filters and lots of powerful tools. You can share the creative photos you make on PicsArt on Instagram and show them off to your followers and friends.

  • Pocket Casts – $3.99

An excellent podcast app that allows you to manage all your favorite podcasts, and synchronize them between multiple devices.

  • Slacker Radio – FREE/paid ad-free plans

A special music player on your device. It has a huge library of songs, excellent curated playlists, and a wide variety of streaming content. The free version is ad-supported.

  • SwiftKey Keyboard – FREE

If you’re not a fan of Swype but like the idea of gesture-based typing, you might want to give SwiftKey a try. It allows you to drag your thumb or finger from one letter to another to create words. The predictive text makes typing short messages even faster and it has arguably the best auto-correct of all the keyboard apps in the Play Store.

Obviously, not everyone will want to have all of these Play Store applications on their device. I won’t be offended if you’re not into comics or podcasts 😛 But hopefully you found at least one new app that looks interesting.
