Top 11 Must-Have Android apps

The Android app store has millions of applications. It is time-consuming to search for the best app among them. You can download an app for literally anything nowadays. You can have social apps, high-tech apps, prediction apps, gaming apps, health and fitness apps, etc.

There are a lot of categories for which many great apps are available. I’ll only add apps of three categories,

  • Everyday Life,
  • Multimedia, 
  • Productivity.

Top Everyday Life applications

You can find some decent apps in this list that you can use daily. These apps won’t be essential for you, but having them on your phone can make life easier. Let’s check which apps am I talking about:

1) Accuweather

It is by far the most popular app in its category. You do not necessarily use it daily, but it is really useful. For instance, if you want to plan a vacation, trip, or even a function, you might want to look at the weather prediction too.

2) Google Maps

Almost everyone uses Google Maps now and then. It is hugely popular as it gives you pretty accurate routes, ratings, and search results. However, it is not just the online version that I love. I also love the feature that I can download any route in advance to not worry about the internet connection after it.

People use it for personal chats, office chats, audio calls, video calls, and payments. You can also put status and story on your account to let everyone know what is new.

4) Banking Apps

I can not mention a single application because there are many different banking apps in many countries. You can either use a third-party banking app or an app your bank has. Whichever way you use these apps, they are beneficial. You can make payments, send money to friends and family, order something, and pay your bills through one app. These are some popular apps in India with their Google Playstore ratings,

8) VPN Apps

Some people might not find VPNs that useful. But, I use it very often. You can use it to watch free movies, geo-locked content, banned games, etc. You can also use it to save some money on flight booking, in-game purchases, and other subscriptions.


KODI is a free and open-source entertainment hub. The reason several people use KODI is because of its availability on different platforms. I use it on my Android device and Amazon Firestick.

You can watch free movies and live streams on a big screen by using KODI on Amazon Fire Stick. You only have to install a VPN to access free content on KODI. The fast VPN servers help smooth streaming on Kodi and also save you a lot of money.
