Which are the best applications I must have in my Android phone?
As our phones and tablets get more and more integrated into our lives the choice of apps bes a much more important and interesting question. Here are a few that I use every day and rmend. Twilight n Twilight - Android Apps on Google Play s nThis app adjusts the brightness and blue levels of your screen based on the sunset times where you live. Blue light interferes with melatonin production and since most of can seem to put our phones down after dark this app limits the disruption of your sleep cycle caused by a bright blue screen. Duolingon Duolingo Learn Languages Free - Android Apps on Google Play s nLearn a language from your phone. I am currently learning Spanish through this app and I find their lessons intuitive and helpful. It has daily reminders to keep your streak going and this is easy to do when it is always in your pocket. Untappdn Untappd - Discover Beer - Android Apps on Google Play s nIf you like craft beer this is the app to have. Friends can toast andment on the beers you check in and it has a feature to find nearby beers bars and breweries. You can also see how other people have rated beers when youre deciding what to try. Google Opinion Rewardsn Google Opinion Rewards - Android Apps on Google Play s nIf you have an Android device chances are that at some point youve bought something from the Play Store. Why use your own money when you don have to? This app pops up occasional notifications with brief surveys usually 5 questions or less. Forpleting these surveys you get a few cents of Play Store credit. It doesn sound like much but it adds up. My girlfriend has over $5 accrued which means that whenever we want to rent a movie it costs us nothing. Kindlen s italic s nGoogle Play Books is a great app but many books only seem to be available on Kindle. Kindle also integrates with Overdrive the service used by many libraries so many of the books you want to read might be availablepletely free. VLCn VLC for Android - Android Apps on Google Play s nJust like on the PC this media player plays anything that I throw at it. It is great to have this as an option for playing local video. Google Now Launchern s italic s nMany device manufacturers load their phones and tablets with horrible ugly skins. Switching to a different launcher can undo at least some of the damage. This one as the name suggests puts all the helpful features of Google Now a swipe away. It also arranges apps and manages the home screen in a helpful and attractive way. There are many options for launchers but this is my personal favorite. I could go on and on about even more apps that I use all the time but what you really should do is find what works best for you. If any of the apps that came with your phone don meet your needs search Google for a better alternative. It almost certainly exists. Android is a very open and customizable mobile operating system so you should have very little trouble getting it working the way you want.
What are some useful day-to-day Android applications?
Apps that I use on a daily basis Waze - I grew up in Phoenix where everything is on a grid but then I moved to Boston where I feel like I apparated there and wouldn't have a clue how to get back. Waze is my go to GPS. Spotify - I bit the bullet and upgraded to premium Spotify and it's the happiest app purchase I've ever made. If you're a music junkie like me this is THE app for your fix. Hangouts - I use Google Hangouts as my default SMS app. I find it has better UI is more reliable and keeps all your Gmail messaging and SMS in the same place. IFTTT - If This Then That lets me set up conditionals so I never have to worry for the things that need to follow an action or occurrence i.e. If I arrive at work location then turn my phone on vibrate. There are many conditionals that exist and more you can create. Misfit - There are lots of activity tracker apps out there and I used to love Google Fit but it doesn't work on the HTC One M8(I mean really Google? How hard can that be?). I also can't use most activity tracker wearables as they mostly have stainless steel mon metal allergy to nickel) but Misfit is small light and magnetic so I can clip it to clothes and sync via Blutooth to the app. It also syncs with apps like Walgreens MyFitnessPal and more. Clean Master Doctor Love it for knowing which apps are zapping my power in an easy and digestable manner and quick optimization to make sure my device is in top condition. Inkpad - There are a lot of list apps out there (super saturated market) I just happen to like this one.
