Top Ten Must Have Android Applications

I know a lot of people would love to have all the applications on the Google Play store on their Android phones or tablets, but unfortunately managing all of these applications would be difficult. For some users, they just don’t have the space to accommodate all these applications. The good news is that there are certain applications every user must have that would bring their Android phones alive. At least if you have these applications, you would have an improved Android experience.

The first application on my list is the one and only, Android ASSISTANT. This application is just monitors activities on your phone by providing you with information about your phones memory usage, battery usage, and also information about your memory card. It also has a quick boost feature that can improve the speed and efficiency of your phone. In addition, Android Assistant also enables you to control your phones volume levels, clean your system files, provides a file manager to manage your files, a batch installer and uninstaller to install or uninstall applications easily, and my favourite feature, which is moving your applications from your phones memory to your SD card (memory card). What more can you ask for, this application is an all in one application, a must have for every user and it is absolutely free.

The Second application on the list is the Android AVG antivirus. Everyone needs protection including your Android phone. Without protection, your phone becomes vulnerable. Ultimately, you can go for any reliable antivirus to protect your Android phone but I prefer the AVG Antivirus Pro for the features it offers. Aside the fact that it protects my phone from threats and viruses; it also has an anti-theft feature, by registering my installed antivirus on my phone using my email address. This enables me access my phone if it is stolen. I can easily track it by location, set off an alarm or lock it by imputing a short code using the internet either by another phone or computer. This gives you ultimate protection and less worries.



The third on the list is everyone’s favourite application, Whatsapp. Whatsapp is very easy to use and requires your phone number to register and it enables you to chat with friends and family. It enables you share pictures, video and audio files. Some would prefer the KIK messenger because it also has similar features. Well, KIK is not bad either but WhatsApp is more secured. With KIK, if a person does not have your number they can still contact you because they need your username only, and yes there are other third party applications that randomly give out KIK user names, for example OINKTEXT whereas this is not possible if you are using WhatsApp. So overwhelmingly, WhatsApp is more secured.

The fourth on the list is the opera mini. Most of us like the opera is very fast and effective. Other browsers such as UC BROWSER and Mozilla are very good too but I prefer the opera mini because it is very simple to has a user-friendly interface and can be used to easily access your Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts.

The number five spot goes to LIVESCORES. The ultimate application for updates in respect to scores or results from sporting events. It gives you minute by minute updates from live sporting events, be it football, basketball or even tennis. Many mistaken it for a soccer application, but it covers a lot of sporting activities. You have to access the menu button below and navigate through the options to access other sporting activities. live scores come in handy if you are a lover of sports.

The number six spot is taken by VLC, yes, VLC.VLC is an amazing video player and most of us know it for its performance on our computers, but now its on Android and it has a similar performance just like on the computer. A lot of Android phones do not play certain video formats such as (Flv video formats). Well, worry no more, because with VLC for Android, you don’t need to go through the hassle of converting your videos to.MP4 or.3Gp. Video files with .FLV extensions would just play fine. You don’t need extra plugins, VLC will do the magic.

Our number seven on the list is Colour Note. You can call it the notepad of Android. It enables you to take notes of important things you would want to do. Colour note is very easy to use and also easily accessible. You can put your to-do list on your color note application and refer to it when required just in case you forget things easily. You can also edit and make changes to it.

The next application which comes in at number eight is clipboard cleaner. This is an application many might not find relevant but if you are an Android user who is concerned about why your space keeps reducing without reason, then you might consider your clipboard as one place that is consuming some of that space and this application comes in to fix that. Most Android phones copy pictures or text files that have been used or saved unto the clipboard. Sometimes, these files are not removed and therefore, one must remove it manually. This application solves that. It is less than one megabyte and is also very effective.

The number nine position goes to FUNNY JOKES. Yes its an application, so don’t presume I am joking. funny jokes comes in to reduce your boredom. It is easy to use and it comes with different categories of jokes, from short jokes, to long jokes, and even YO MOMMA jokes, that would make you laugh. You are also given the option to favourite your top jokes and also rate them. This is an application that would put a smile on your face.

The last application in this list, which takes the tenth position is a game. Many would prefer a game that is easy to play, one that would not drain your battery, small in size and to top it off, one that is free. Well, BUBBLE BREAKER is a perfect fit. Some would say Angry Birds is better but some Android phones just don’t have the space to install angry birds. If you have the space, you can add bubble breaker to it, it only makes your gaming experience better. Everyone can play bubble breaker, be it the young or the old.

So with these ten basic Android applications available to you, I am sure you would cherish and appreciate your Android even more. I must say a very big thank you to all the developers who developed these applications. They have made it easy for me and you to have access to them, so get on the Google Play store, download these applications and have fun.
