Top 9 Essential Android Apps of 2017
The Google Play Store has rough about of 3 million apps. Whoa!!!! That is one huge lot to run through and see which ones are worth your time. So how do you bypass the useless ones to find the apps you really need?
Not to worry, I am here for you. J
Here is the list of 9 most essential Android apps for 2017 which truly deserve your attention :
- Amazon Kindle
Amazon is still the king of eBooks, despite the best efforts from other companies like Barnes & Noble. This Android app is a must have. It allows you to sync your current read between your phone, tablet and Kindle so you can keep all your devices on the same page.
- Android Device Manager Android Device Manager helps users locate their device when it’s gone missing, reset their pin or passcode and even erase all the data. It’s not an app you will use everyday, but the one time you do need it, you’ll be happy it’s in your app drawer.
- Android Pay
Unlike iOS, Android has a few options for mobile payments depending on what device you have. The answer is Android Pay which allows users to add any card from a participating bank (which is most major U.S. banks) and a large number of rewards cards.
Keeping yourself on task can be immensely difficult. This app is a great way to do so thanks to its ability to sync between all of your devices, including desktop, so you’re always in the know about what’s next on your to-do list. Add in a deep bench of features, like sharing lists and tasks with friends and co-workers.
- Avast Mobile Security
Of the two major mobile operating systems, Android is the more vulnerable from a security perspective. Avast is one of the most recommended security apps in the Play Store, and for good reason. It has a host of features, including WiFi scanning, app locker, RAM boost and more.
If you ever need to scan documents on the go then its incredibly simple to use and helpful in a pinch. The app also allows you to sync your scanned documents across multiple devices, so you can keep everything up to date.
Quite possibly the most gorgeous Twitter alternative on the Play Store, Flamingo has become a favorite thanks to its combination of looks and performance.
- Google Fit
Google Fit is an effective app aside from being a beautiful. If you need a more robust experience than what Fit offers with its basic fitness tracking, simply team it up with another fitness app you love.
- Google Translate
The Google Translate app is actually quite helpful, especially if you’re a frequent traveller. It uses the smart phone platform intelligently, letting users scan signs, posters and other items in the real world and translate them on their phone.
