Must have android apps

Either you bought your new Android smartphone, or you switched to android from another platform, what is the first thing you do to your smartphone? You'll go to play store to download some of the amazing apps, don't you?
So today I'm going to suggest you some very useful apps for your Android device and believe me these apps are must have for every Android device whether you are a newbie or an experienced user.

So get ready and check out these apps-

1. ES file explorer:-

This app is the most basic one, and you need to download it to access your SD card and necessary data as some Android stock versions don't feature any file manager, without a file manager you are unable to access files stored on your sd card.
Another good alternative is the Astro File Manager.

2. UC Browser/Chrome:-

Not to mention that you'll need a good browser before doing anything else on your Android device.
Both chrome and UC browser are the good options but for Indian readers, I'll recommend UC browser as they are running some good activities (Guessing games ) recently which are pretty fun and awarding as well.

3. MX Player:-

Currently best player on android for playing videos as it supports all of the major file formats including HEVC.
Though there are also some big names like Vlc media player available on the Android platform, they are still in their early stage, and MX player is there for quite a long time.

4. Poweramp Music Player:-

Hey, music lovers ! if you'll ever ask me about the best music player on Android, I'll recommend "Poweramp Music Player."
First of all, the interface is stunning. Another thing is that it gives a lot of options for tweaking audio quality, and because of that you would get the best out of your Android device.

There is a free version available on play store which gives you a 14-day trial after that you have to purchase the app.
So the chances are good that you'll end up buying it.

5. Utorrent:-

If you are a download lover and often download music, popular movies or other media, then this app is for you as it can download torrents from favorite sites.

Disclaimer: - I'm not here to promote piracy. Downloading copyrighted material is illegal so, Please support the developers if you like their work.

6. Skype:-

Most popular app for making video calls, sharing photos, messages. We can't imagine the world without it because now it becomes an important aspect of our life. Developers are regularly adding many new features to Skype. Other alternatives for Skype are Yahoo, Line, Oovoo, and Tango.

7. Whatsapp Messenger:-

Well, this app needs no introduction as it quickly becomes one of the good reasons to have a smartphone.
From messages to voice calls, this app provides a lot of features and the good thing is that it does not demand any subscription fee.
The Only bad thing is that it does not support video calls, but developers are constantly upgrading it.


PPSSPP is the best emulator to simulate PSP games on your Android device.
As this emulator is fully functional now so, you may expect good performance on your Android device.
If you are a hardcore gamer, I have to say "This app is a must have."

9. Google Drive:-

An excellent cloud storage service to backup and protect your important documents, photos, music and everything.
With Google drive, you initially get 10 GB of free space to upload your heart's content, but if you are someone who needs to upload loads of data to cloud services, then you can avail premium membership to expand storage capacity. Another great alternative for Google drive is Onedrive.

10. Avast Antivirus:-

This time, I'm not going to say that this antivirus is best because there are a lot of options available including some big names like Kaspersky, Norton, AVG.
Each of them works differently and has different detection rate. Avast has 98% detection rate.
If you are seeking for a great and free antivirus, then go with Avast and if you want a great but paid alternative, then go with Kaspersky.

11. App Quarantine (Root required):-

If you are a veteran of Android, then you know that ordinary task killers won't work that efficiently as when you kill apps they become active automatically after some time.
This app freezes the desired app for as long as you want.

If you ask me-"why I need to use this app"?

The answer is- (i) Use it if you are running out of free RAM or have a smartphone with low RAM.
                 (ii) Use it if you are annoyed of useless pre-installed apps popping out now and then.

Note: Don't use this app if you are a newbie or don't know much about it.

12. Titanium Backup (Root required):-

Highly recommended ! as it backups your entire device data, create app installer from installed apps, freezing apps, restoring apps, uninstalling unwanted inbuilt apps, removing ads, transfer apps from phone to SD card and much more.
You can do pretty much everything by using this app. It's one of the best apps ever made for the Android platform.

It's all for now, I hope you like it and remember one thing- "Sharing is caring."
