I purchased a new android phone and trying to find some good apps to install on it. Please share your favorite android apps here.
Here are mine! Aviate, Pocket, Google+, Keep, Foursquare
Bonus: most hated -> LinkedIn
EDIT: Glad you signed-up ;)
I signed up for DN just so I could upvote you for mentioning LinkedIn.
Your comment made me sign up for DN. I didn't know i can. last time I checked it was some how limited?
They removed invite only sign ups and opened it to the public a couple weeks ago.
I've been looking for something exactly like Transit for a while now to replace the terrible SEPTA app. Thanks for the tip!
Todoist as a widget on my homescreen is the best, quickest way to go from thinking of a task to writing it down
+1 for Audible, Slack and Swiftkey as well
I'll add hello app for sms, it's got a minor but brilliant interface change that elevates it
Another +1 for SwiftKey.
Thought, I must say, TouchPal is also quite nice for a keyboard. If I could swipe sentences like with SwiftKey, I'd probably use it full time.
- 1 for hello. It's minimalistic interface is almost perfect for me. Also, it teams up very well with an indispensable keyboard like Swiftkey.
Everyone has given you the basics here.
Three apps may not seem essential but have become important installs every time I set up my phone:
Link Bubble: Link Bubble is a simplified browser built for social streams. It loads links you've tapped in a hidden screen that pops up when you're ready to view them, saving you time to look at whatever's next in your stream.
Press: It hasn't been updated in a while, but it's still my goto RSS reader experience. Simple to use and it's aesthetic makes you feel like an intellectual.
Flighttrack: Flighttrack has had a strange update history but the app itself is simple and beautiful. If you're not tied down by one of the airline's mediocre experiences, check this one out.
- Pocket Casts
- Sunrise Calendar
- My Study Life
Launcher: Atom (side-scrolling dock)
Music: Shuttle / Xiami (I'm in China)
Paranoia: Orbot, Orweb, ChatSecure, Call Recorder, ObscuraCam, Pixelknot, Gliph, TextSecure
I never understood why people use antivirus on Android. I never felt the need for that.
Google Play is blocked in China, so many Chinese app developers use 3rd party stores (ex: Baidu, Anzhi). The downside of these stores is that their standards for what's allowed in an app is much lower. Without Aviva, I wouldn't know that Baidu's cloud service has a component which they believe allows them to monitor my usage in a way I might not want. It's handy to have.
Wow… Now that’s a very informative insight given in a very friendly way. I’m positively impressed. Thank you, random citizen. :)
Twitter. Whatsapp. Facebook. Gravity Screen. 1Password. OneFootball. Youtube.
Oh yeah! OneFootball is a great one!

dodol launcher - best launcher out there I think.
myMail - another email client
IFTTT - if this than that app.
I can't believe no one has mentioned Mighty Text

Ditto with Press (RSS), Cal (calendar), and Timely (alarm clock/stopwatch/timer).
