Top ten Android apps February 2015 edition
Today we’re beginning a new series in which I plan to post the top 10 Android apps each month. This will cover apps from almost all popular categories and I hope this will be useful to you. So here it is.
1. Category: Productivity
This app comes in 2 parts, 1 Android app and the other, browser extension. It shows all your notifications from your Android mobile on your computer and then lets you reply to text messages, Facebook, Hangouts and WhatsApp messages from your computer itself. That’s not all. It also lets you share files and website links between computer and Android smartphone.
2. Category: Personalization
App: Nova Launcher
This is one of the most simple yet efficient Android launcher out there which has been downloaded more than 10 million people. You can change icon themes, colors, layouts animations and more with this launcher.
3. Category: Productivity
App: Today Calendar
This calendar is one of a kind which provides a very beautiful UI with high functionality with truly beautiful aesthetics.
4. Category: Photography
This is the best Android gallery app available today, period. QuickPic is fast, light weight, modern and has features like password protection for selected photos, multiple social services support etc etc. Did I tell you about how awesome is its UI with the Material design?
5. Category: Communication
App: Google Messenger
From Android’s early days if it lacked one thing, it was a good enough SMS app. The SMS app provided with Android was just not enough and most of those alternatives from Google Play Store were either too basic, or cluttered with a lot of unneeded features. But not anymore, Google’s Messenger app is pretty neat and a functional SMS app which looks good and is free of any services which we don’t want. The new, fluid, material design that is intuitive and delightful makes it a must have.
6. Category: Tools
This is an app which lets you automate your phone basically anyway you want! Let’s say you would like to silence your phone when you’re near your church or send a text to your wife once you reach office etc. Tasker can do all those things. If you have tasked the only limit is your imagination.
7. Category: Tools
App: Cabinet BETA
Cabinet is one of the most simple and good looking file manager today. It looks so clean with its material design and comes with no extra features to make it complicated. But that doesn’t mean it doesn’t have any features. The developer has carefully added all the features a file manager should have, to Cabinet BETA without making it complicated to use. And yes it supports rooted phones!
8. Category: Arcade Game
Duet is an arcade game in which you have to control two vessels in sync and survive against the obstacles. The game is really engaging and addictive. A must try in my opinion.
9. Category: Lifestyle
App: Timely Alarm Clock
If you’re over depended on alarms, then you should try this app. This app is one of the best alarm clock available in Google Play Store. It has challenges to make sure you’re really awoke before dismissing them. It support multiple device integration and you can simply dismiss alarm on one device and the alarm will be dismissed on all devices. I am not going to write all the features here, head over to the link below and see it for yourself!
10. Category: Lifestyle
This app has the largest collection of do-it-yourself projects created by and shared by the users of the app. The developer claims that they have 100,000 tutorials in categories like technology, workshop etc. Try it out here.
