10 Best Android Tools Apps
TimeTune – Schedule Planner
Using a calendar app is a sure-fire way to keep your schedule organized. We have talked about how to get started with Google Calendar before, but if you want something that is both simple and packed with features, try Astrid Tasks & Timers. Astrid lets you view all your tasks in one place, keeps track of how much time you spend on each task, and integrates seamlessly with Google Calendar.
Dropbox: Cloud Storage Space
Rather than trying to remember where you saved a file and wishing you had an automatic backup of your photos, documents, or contacts, Dropbox will keep them safe. This is especially important for those who have storage limits on their mobile devices—Dropbox can save everything that does not fit onto your phone, so it is there when you need it.
The Google Assistant is Google’s rival to Apple’s Siri, Microsoft’s Cortana, and Amazon’s Alexa. Unlike other digital assistants, however, it ties into everything in your Google account – including your emails, files stored on Drive and search history. The good news is that you can also use it on a laptop or desktop computer as well as an Android or iOS phone. If you want voice control over everything in your digital life, then downloading this app could be a useful next step.
The Assistant has Google Search at its core, which means you can ask it anything. It is getting better all the time too, with new features constantly being added to make it easier to use and understand. For example, you can get it to read out your emails so that you do not have to type in a message or search for a specific term. Ask what tomorrow’s weather will be like and it will tell you – as well as listing out key events on your calendar if any are scheduled. Of course, if there is something you want to know more about then just ask away and you should receive an answer within seconds.
Wunderlist is an app that lets you create and manage to-do lists from your desktop, smartphone, or tablet. The service makes it easy to organize and share your plans, no matter what device you are using. Many people like it because Wunderlist allows you to sync your lists across all devices so if something comes up while on your mobile device, you can easily add it to a list without having to go back home and switch apps.
IFTTT can help you create a circle of simplicity around your online life. With IFTTT, you can connect multiple services and devices so that actions from one app are seamlessly replicated on another. For example, if you want to save Instagram photos to your Dropbox account or download YouTube videos to your phone’s storage card automatically, IFTTT will make it happen with no additional work required on your part.
Plus, there are lots of fun recipes that show what’s possible when apps talk to each other; for example: Turn on your lights when it gets dark outside—and do not forget to use a trigger phrase when turning off your lights (like Goodnight, Alexa) so they know those to whom they are listening!
Mind Map & Concept Map Maker – Mindomo
Mind mapping is a fantastic way to get started with project planning, and MindNode is one of our favorite mind-mapping apps on any platform. The software helps you create tree maps by starting a central mind map that branches out into subtopics (your main thoughts) and then sub-subtopics (secondary thoughts), as far as you want to take it.
Access your PC from anywhere with TeamViewer, a free tool that is available on all operating systems. Once you have downloaded and installed it, accessing your desktop or files is as easy as logging into your account on their website.
There are also paid versions of TeamViewer that come with added features like remote assistance, where you can have someone take over your computer remotely to fix a problem or just show you how to do something. For instance, if you are trying to set up a printer but are not sure how, TeamViewer can connect you with tech support for a fee (as low as $2 per month).
ES File Explorer
Whether you want to explore your device’s file system or connect to a network drive, ES File Explorer has all your file-exploring needs covered. It supports FTP, cloud storage (Google Drive, OneDrive, Dropbox), SFTP, WebDav and more.
It is also one of those apps that will appeal to tinkerers: you can use it to wipe, format and perform a host of other actions on your phone or tablet. All with a single tap! There is even an anti-virus feature that claims to scan every file and device connected to your phone or tablet for malware.
LastPass Password Manager
Google’s 2-step verification system is a good first step in locking down your account and making it harder for intruders to get into your email. But there is one glaring omission with that option: What if you forget your password?
Well, now you can set up another layer of protection by using a password manager app like LastPass or Dashlane. These apps generate super-strong passwords and then remember them all for you, so all you must do is log in with a few pieces of information like your username, which Google already has on file.
This powerful app can help you rid your phone of ads and malware, but it is a bit of a Pandora’s box. By default, AdBlock only allows non-intrusive ads to pass through its servers, but there is a complicated set of steps that can allow you to customize which sites it blocks.
If you want to get rid of all advertising on your phone—whether it be in a browser or in an app—AdBlock Plus is your go-to app.
The ads that are still allowed through are non-intrusive, so you do not have to worry about accidentally blocking something important. This can also help protect your privacy while browsing, since it stops third parties from knowing what sites you visit, as well as disables malware by blocking potentially harmful ads.
