If you received an Android device for a present this Christmas then you might be interesting in our list of the best apps to download to your new device, it features a number of apps that will allow you to get the most out of your device.
Check them out below.
One great feature of iOS is Apple’s Find My iPhone application, which allows you to track Apple devices if you lose them. But it is not just iOS that has this feature, as Android does as well with the new Android Device Manager application, which allows you to manage devices, find them, secure them and even wipe them via an Android device, or through a web browser.
One of the best productivity solutions for Android is definitely the Google Drive suite, which allows users to access a number of productivity features via apps like Google Docs, Google Sheets, Google Slides, Google Photos and Google Keep.
And to top the app off, all new users get 15GB of storage with Google Drive upon signing up to the service, allowing you to easily share, collaborate and store a range of documents, presentations, photos and more over the cloud.
HERE Maps is easily the best mapping application on smartphones, sure Google has a great solution with Google Maps, however we think that HERE Maps offers just that little bit extra, and at no cost to the user. Allowing users to not only download and use maps offline with turn-by-turn navigation, but also providing them with information of places around them to check out, such as restaurants or cinemas.
LastPass is a password manager that allows you to sync your passwords between your mobile device and your desktop, allowing you to forget having to enter a password every time you want to log into something, and hopefully stopping you from forgetting that password. On top of that it will also generate hard-to-hack passwords for the sites and apps that you use if you wish.
There are a number of third-party keyboards available on the Google Play Store, but the SwiftKey Keyboard application is the best out of all those, allowing users to add-on a number of features to their keyboard, with gesture typing, multiple language support, themes, cross-device syncing and more.
If you want to keep your Android device secure then the Mobile Security & Antivirus application for Android is one of the best, allowing for automatic virus detection that can search through your browser history, microSD card and internal storage space. It also allows for location tracking and has a remote data wipe that allows you to secure your phone, should it be stolen.
PhotoDirector from CyberLink is an all-in-one photo editor tool for Android that provides you with everything you need to edit your photos, from adding elements and filters to your images, all the way up to HSL and curves, allowing you to get the best out of your photos.
Kids Place is one of those applications that every parent should have installed on their child’s Android device, allowing you to restrict the phone to your own specific requirements, and lock it down with a PIN code. Basically it allows you to stop your child from viewing or accessing apps or games that you don’t want them to.
It will also stop them from sending messages or purchasing other apps on the phone, and allows the parent to set time restrictions on how long the device can be used by the child.
