MUST HAVE PHONE APPs

*There is no benefit in having an iPhone so we don’t bother reviewing their apps. Most of these are available on both platforms though.

 

Where’s My Droid – Text a phrase or call from a special number in case your phone is lost. It gives you a text reply with location and sounds an alarm.

File Manager – Why this is not included on most current android phones I will never understand.

Opera / Chrome Browser – Fixes most websites you are struggling to visit on your phone.

Note Everything – Access your biz files and write on your phone then upload.

Speak it – Telling your phone what you need is easy with the iPhone and this Android app is catching up to the Serie technology. Combine it with the SVoice function which is standard on most 2015 android phones to do voice commands.

Get Human – This app puts you in touch with the fast route around automated systems so you can actually talk to a human!

Fire Chat – This allows you to use your phone as a 2 way radio when you are out of signal in a deadzone.

TeslaLED – flashlight, strobe light, dance lights

Adobe Reader – book reading

WinAmp/iheartRadio/SoundCloud/TuneIn Radio – Stream your favorite music and radio stations or playback podcasts.

COMMUNICATION

Heytell and TalkBox – voice or video texting/chatting is more personal for your vips. Not to mention quicker. There are delayed deliveries some times due to connection strength of both parties but it is reliable for the most part. Some newer phones have an issue with the talk button releasing which gets annoying but still gets the job done eventually. A good substitute for apple Facetime.

Skype – For keeping in touch with your international friends and family.

Music Winamp – Get all your favorite radio programs in the morning all in one location. I go with Hart Attack (Hart Fisher), Howard, Alex Jones, BBC world, NPR, Hawaiian, Native American and finish with Comedy.

Shazam – Gives you the info of any song you have playing by identifying the music or lyrics.

Ringtone Maker – very easy to use

Pictures PhotoShop – Allows you to jazz up any photo by customizing the look and doing art overlays.

Video Cam Illusion- Great for customizing videos.

TEXTING

Go Sms Pro – Mimics the iPhone texting emoticons. Fully customizable backgrounds and fonts etc.

GoogleVoice – Place calls and texts via free wifi instead of using minutes. Tons of customizing for voicemail options. It is too complicated to use and I will not have much to say about it unless I turn off my data/sms plan and need a new solution.

 

BUSINESS

AndroZip – Secure multiple files for sharing.

Lock – Lock your password files in case your phone is ever lost.

QR Coder – Make a quick Q code to share with people who have a smart phone. I do this instead of handing out cards to help save the trees.

Metals Spot tracker – Watch your silver and gold values so you know when to buy and sell.

Google Docs – Access work files with Note everything by storing them on G docs for access.

Shop Savvy Bar Code Scanner – Use this to find lowest prices near you or just basic info about anything with a bar code.

Exchange rates – Know your world market for travel.

Convert Units – Quickly figure oz. to liters etc.

Gas Buddy – Locate your closest deals for fuel.

YElp – Helps you locate places and compare reviews.

Maps and Nav – Don’t get lost!

Paper Karma – Remove junk mail with a simple photo snap.

VoxDox – eBook conversion to audio book

Kinomi Remote / Samsung Kies – Remote access between your laptop and phone.

S Translator – Learn new languages when you are bored.
