5 great apps for Android

The latest apps, the best apps: in this digital age, our phones are in constant use. We use them for texting, talking, surfing the web, engaging with social media and much more. You probably don’t even realize how many times you pick it up throughout the day, but if you’re like most people — it’s probably a lot. With such an important device, you probably want to have everything you need on your phone as well as all of the cool apps that you can get. With a plethora of apps on the market, however, finding those that are really cool and useful can be hard. No matter if you just got a new phone or you just want to have new apps, this list should help you find cool and handy apps.

Google Drive

Let's start this list with a very useful app - Google Drive. It is for free up to 15GB storage but you can of course pay for more. From my own experience 15GB is more than enough so you probably do not need to spend extra money. Google Drive is a Cloud storage system for Android devices. The Apple component would be iCloud. OneDrive, the Microsoft component, is also a similar application. As you can also access Google Drive on your computer your phone and your laptop are kind of synced. Google Drive is also great for people who do group projects for work or education because you can easily share your work with others and have access from anywhere with an internet connection.

Microsoft SwiftKey

This app replaces your keyboard with a third party keyboard. Why should you do that you wonder? Because this app offers an amazing and customizable keyboard that is for free. The predictive engine is exceptional so autocorrect fails are the past. The app allows gesture typing and supports multiple languages. Also you can set a number row. If you want even more customization you can pay for extra themes.

Podcast Addict

As the name tells you this app gives you access to 750K podcasts but also radios and audiobooks. The basic version is for free but for a single payment of 3.99$ you have the premium version. Compared to Spotify for example, which also offers podcasts, you do not have monthly payments here. So this app is comparably cheap to other podcast apps. It offers almost every podcast you can think of. Furthermore, it has an easy-to-use user interface and plenty of organizational features like playback and download features. Of course you can create playlists easily, and it supports both Chromecast and SONOS environments.


This is a great and widely used music player for Android devices. After a free trial period you have to pay 4.99$ to continue using it. The music player has basically all of the features one could possibly want: Hi-res audio support, Android Auto, an equalizer, gapless smoothing, and support for virtually any audio codec you can find.


Signal is a free messenger app, like WhatsApp: But unlike WhatsApp Signal does not collect your data. No matter if you call or text, the communication is end-to-end encrypted. It offers nearly the same features as WhatsApp: Calls and Video Calls, Private Chats and Group chats. You can send files, pictures, videos and voice messages. Signal does not cooperate with advertising parties nor does it track their users. Signal is an independent brand that is not under restrictions of big tele-companies. The only downside is that you probably have to tell your friends to use it as well. But there is already a trend towards Signal.
