No one can deny the popularity of Android phones in the market. People love them. Why? If you know which App can do what for you and you know how to use it properly then you will love your Android phone. So here, I would like to share my opinion about five Android apps that should be installed on every smartphone to make them better.
LauncherPro. An attractive application with basic functionality. This alternative launcher adds a customizable dock bar for launching apps, but that is only a fraction of the functionality it brings to the home screen. This will give you total new home screen on your phone, with a new app drawer for launching apps included. The app also makes a suite of home screen widgets available that can be added as desired to install a raft of new functionality on the home screens as desired.
Beautiful Widgets. The best thing about Android to have strong ability to change the interface according to your need. You can add many interesting widgets through this. The app installs a bunch of home screen widgets of varying sizes that make it a breeze to tailor the look and feel of the screens to the user’s personal taste. The widgets include HTC Sense look-alikes for those who like the clock and weather screens on those devices, but that’s just for starters. There are hundreds of clock, weather and battery meter skins for download within Beautiful Widgets that can make the phone screen look any way you want.
Amazon MP3. This free app has morphed from a simple way to get free music on Android phones into a full-fledged cloud music playing system. The free MP3 of the day is still there, along with easy access to cheap album deals in the Amazon music store, but with the launch of the Cloud Drive the Amazon MP3 app has evolved into a must-have for Android phone owners. Once you upload your music library to the Amazon Cloud, streaming it to any Android device (and computer) is a simple tap on the screen.
Dolphin Browser HD. The installed Web Browsers on Android phones are the good ones. But in my opinion they cant compete with Dolphin Browser HD. This browser comes with the main feature of fast speed for rendering web pages, and at the same time has a unique touch system for improved web browsing. The bookmark system is as sophisticated as that on any desktop browser, yet is as easy to operate as tapping on the screen. This browser also brings in plug-in system that enable it to add in tons of functionality as desired. There is a configurable gesture system in Dolphin that lets you trigger actions by drawing on the screen with a fingertip, a tremendously useful feature. There is a free version that is ad-supported in the settings menus, or a $4.99 version without ads.
Multicon Widget. Its common issue when you want to hold so much information on home screen but due to the limit of phone screen size, you can’t do that. Here comes this Widget which actually helps you put four icons on the space of one, which greatly extends the screen real estate. The four icon slots are not restricted to apps, you can put shortcuts for actions and special functions like Wi-Fi toggle in the slots. This is the most useful widget for a free app.
