There are countless apps on the play store – so many, that it can sometimes become a chore selecting the right app. However, after thoroughly researching each popular app, I’ve narrowed down some of the most popular apps on the play store.
Google Voice makes it to number one on my list because it’s from Google, meaning it can seamlessly integrate with any Android phone or Android device. Google voice assigns you a phone number which can receive calls on all your android devices, you also have the option to add as many Android devices as you may please. The app has a built in vigorous – yet accurate – spam filter which works like a marvel to filter out spam text messages, ultimately protecting your privacy. The app lets you make free calls internationally and send text messages. In addition, it also works on desktop.
Google Hangouts makes it to number two on my lists for the same reason as Google Voice. Need, I not say earlier about apps developed by Google to seamless integrate with any Android device – the same principal applies to Google hangouts. Plus, it is quite similar to Google voice in most aspects, and users can download it outside of United States unlike Google Voice, which is geo restricted to users in the United States only.
Viber makes it to number three on my list, because it integrates with your phone line and allows you to call and text your contacts for free – given the fact that your contacts are also using Viber. Best of all, it works worldwide, making it easy – and completely free – for anyone to stay in touch with friends and family living abroad.
Facebook app makes it to number four on my list – simply because – well, its Facebook. It’s the most popular social media website, and it’s only logical that its Android application be just as popular.
Coming in at number five is Avast Mobile security app. What makes Avast deserve fifth place? Well, for once, it has loads of features such remote wipe, secure web surfing, and a battery manager. Best of all, it is completely free, unlike its competitors – and not to mention – extremely light on your phone’s processor.
Making it to the number six spot is Folder Lock; a data privacy app which has a host of features such the capability to hide pictures, videos, documents, and users have the option to save intricate credit card details using the secure wallet feature within the app. What makes this app unique is the fact that all your private files and folders can be accessed by a single password or unlock pattern. Although, there are other similar apps on the play store, this one is the most comprehensive of all, consisting of several data security features mashed up into one single application.
WebMD for Android takes the seventh spot on my list because it’s a must have health app in case of a medical emergency. The app assists you in diagnosing your ailment by asking a serious of question on the symptoms you are experiencing. The app can also locate nearby healthcare practitioners in your local vicinity.
Taking over the number eight spot is another health app called Sleep Bot. This app lets you track your sleep cycle and aids in helping you get a good night’s sleep; it also records your moans, groans and snores during sleep. The app is designed to record your sleep movements, giving you a statistical outline of your sleep cycle. Using your Smartphone’s accelerometer, the app analyzes what stages of sleep you are going through by sensing your movements in bed. In addition, depending on what time you have set the alarm for, the app has a smart alarm feature, configured to wake you up during your lightest sleep stage.
