Smartphones are, at their core, tools. Because of this, many developers have created tons of tools for them that work really well. Android is an extremely vibrant ecosystem and you can do almost whatever you want. Here is a list of the best Android tools and utility apps to help you do more things.
Nice app! Quick and customizable. Would have been better though if we could disable the effects when we draw pattern. It kinda defeats the purpose of disabling the lines for effects still show the pattern you are making to unlock app.
GasBuddy: Find Cheap Gas
GasBuddy is an app that helps you find gas. You can use it to find fueling stations on long road trips. Alternatively, you can use it in the city to find the cheapest gas in your area. On top of that, the app allows you to report the gas prices at stations nearby so you can help out fellow drivers.
Translator Apps, Everytime i open it makes me great amusement and wonder, it goes back to random languages.It really helps me so much and take a short time to convert into various languages. I would like the language what i want to be translated, is fixed, so that i don’t have to scroll down the list to choose the one that i want. It is really awesome .
GSam Battery Monitor
GSam Battery Monitor is a great little battery tool that is accessible to almost everyone. For many, the stock battery monitoring in the Settings will be enough. However, those looking for a little more information can get it with an app like this one. You’ll be able to see things like screen on time, phone usage, mobile radio usage, WiFi usage, and, of course, app usage. Root users can get some additional functionality by installing the root companion. It’s free (as is the root companion) with ads or you can pay the $2.49 to remove that advertising.
File Expert – file manager
Definitely Surpassed ES! Just absolutely amazing! The devs obviously take pride in their work (which they should, since it’s so great) and are incredibly loyal and interactive with all their user-base! As far as the app goes, it includes more features (that work flawlessly) than any other to date! And don’t even get me started about the gorgeous interface… It’s by far the best around and how material design should always be done!
LastPass Password Manager
LastPass is a password management tool that helps you create and remember passwords. The idea is that you can create amazingly complex passwords and then LastPass will remember them for you. Not everyone is excited about the company being bought out by LogMeIn. However, so far LastPass has remained operating just like it always has. The service comes with tons of features. LastPass Authenticator also adds another level of security for those who are weary. You can use it on mobile for free or you can pay $12 per year to use it on all of your devices, including your computer.
AfterShip Package Tracker
It’s easy to take simple things for granted. That’s what I’ve done with this app for years. It’s time to give the dev some recognition for a job very well done. Simple can be good. In this case, it doesn’t mean ugly, incomplete, unreliable, or half-baked in any way. This app does one job and does it very well. It even looks good while doing it. Did I mention that it’s free? Yep, in every way. No cost, no ads, nada. Just plain free. When I stop to think about it, I realize that this app is quite a rare gem!
It automatically knew the length of the screen and is very intuitive. The other smart tools are good too.
WiFi Analyzer is an app that helps you learn more about your WiFi connection as well as the connections around you. For most, this isn’t overly useful information, but you can use the info gleaned here to optimize your router, get off of clogged WiFi channels, and perhaps even help improve your overall WiFi performance. It uses simple, easy-to-read graphs that virtually anyone can understand along with a signal measuring function and support for both 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz. It’s also entirely free, which is nice.
