Top 20 Essential apps for Android Smartphones

20 Essential Apps

1. Sygic

GPS Navigation is really awesome, specially when you get with 3D Map, for me this app is the most important app when I am on the run. Google Map is good but you don’t get anything like Sygic. Must app recommended by me.

There’s nothing like Sygic Navigation !

2. MX Player

I love this player, Smartphone is incomplete without it, Not all the smartphones can play any format so you need the appropriate player along with codecs so you can enjoy by playing any type of video on your smartphone, even the live streaming supported.

3. Psiphon 

life is incomplete with VPN no doubt about it, specially when we talk about Pakistan where Youtube is banned -_- best way to tunnel your device via VPN and Enjoy Youtube like you aren’t in Pakistan at all :P

Access everything on the Internet with Psiphon’s secure tunnelOver a million people across the world are already using Psiphon’s censorship circumvention too.

4. Google Drive

Always keep you backup, Don’t rely on SD card and Hard Disk Drives, you can upload your data easily, I hope you don’t have sensitive images / data which may get leaked on cloud storage but if you are like me who love to access from remote locations Google Drive is the best for almost every type of data storage.

Google Drive allows you to store all types of data and it’s linked with your Google ID  so what more do you want. Upload from here and download it anywhere.

5. Whatsapp

Whatsapp is essential app, Group or Friends stay in touch, Now the Call option is active you can call up any time you like, The best messaging app till dated, after the voice feature I have uninstalled VIBER – This link is directly to Whatsapp official website so each time you download you will get updated APK .

6. Facebook Messenger

Facebook Messenger is pretty useful to stay in touch with your social CIRCUS :D , simply just complete your life by adding another hectic known as Facebook Messenger.

Social Interaction and Facebook addiction what can I say about it, Facebook Messenger is good enough copying the trends of Whatsapp but most your Online buddies don’t share their contacts with you so you hock up with them online via Facebook Messenger.

7. Facebook

I don’t wonna say anything about Facebook, People are addicted and at times some people get emotional so just download directly without accessing Google play store .

8. Twitter

Micro Blogging Social Network,  Insanity on the height, where people even talk to themselves as well, Once it was considered weird Talking to the walls now it’s officially legal and Legimit , Thanks to Internet for making anything possible, however there is a brighter side of Twitter as well, you can share your friends and celebrities, Sports personalities , politicians , brands, stores or get the new alerts, ON and OFF Line via Twitter on your SMS. Twitter stands as the 2nd biggest social website in the world, You should be there and follow INCPak there @INCPak Incase you want to contact me @Farhan_Imaan :) you are welcome there.

9.  SoundCloud 

Millions of people use SoundCloud to listen to music and audio for free. Wherever you are. Whatever you’re doing. The SoundCloud app lets you hear more. More hip hop. More rock. More electronic. More classical. More house, jazz, audiobooks, sports…

11. Skype

Do I need to have to say a word. Nope Nope Just Download.

12. Instagram

I am still understanding why people share snaps on instagram while they also share on Facebook, Twitter and other social networks but Instagram is dedicated to Images and Video clips another social interaction place for everyone where they can follow like and comment on other’s images and share there own.

13. Google Earth

My life is incomplete without Google Earth, It saves my fuel and takes me the to places I can’t go without Passport :D I mean the best Handy Smartphone app, always excites me to explore new places and knowing more about the Earth. Wonna see how New York’s Down Town looks like, Just type in Google Earth and there you are.

14. Autodesk Pixlr

There are so many Photo Editors available on Google Play store but this one I find the best, since we are limited to choose which one to add in 20 Essential apps I would recommend this one, meanwhile another dedicated post on Photo editors will be published in upcoming days ( Premium apks )

15. AccuWeather

Damn useful weather forecast app, 95% accurate, Accuweather and Yahoo weather are two most accurate weather apps, I have chosen this one – Not only your city / town but you can find out the weather of any city in the world. don’t forget to download !

16. Wikipedia

Wikipedia, Vault of Information, easy way to know about anything at all, place , people , things even the nuclear atom bomb. this app gives you access to all the information you need to know, I consider this app useful, while most of the users rely on Google search results which aren’t indepth with facts and figures specially the reference damn useful !

17. Microsoft Office Mobile

Microsoft Office Mobile is the official Office companion optimized for your Android phone. You can access, view and edit your Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel and Microsoft PowerPoint documents from virtually anywhere. Documents look like the originals,  charts, animations, SmartArt graphics and shapes. When you make quick edits or add comments to a document, the formatting and content remain intact.

Microsoft Office Mobile made it Android for free and we couldn’t be happier. If you ever use a mobile device for reading or editing Word documents, Excel spreadsheets or PowerPoint presentations, then you know you need this app.

Keep your office in your pocket and access it smartly :)

18. Chrome

Browse fast on your Android phone and tablet with the Google Chrome browser you love on desktop. Pick up where you left off on your other devices with tab sync, search by voice, and save up to 50% of data usage while browsing. There are several other browsers but there’s nothing like Chrome, sign in with your google account and you can save the entire history , bookmarks and lot more .

19.  Air Droid

AirDroid allows you to access and manage your Android phone or tablet from Windows, Mac or the Web, wirelessly, for free. Transfer files between your devices, and share files to your friends.
