Android apps are plenty, and I have had the past couple of years to decide on what I consider to be the most essential. I am a low end user, purchasing economical devices for classroom use and, in the case of my phone, a StraightTalk ZTE Rapido LTE device. In these situations you don’t have access to much storage space; so, I have narrowed my usage to the following apps (all FREE):
WPS Office (Kingsoft): My go to app for reading and creating documents as needed. Yes, Google Drive is there too, but I really like WPS Office on my devices.
Camera360: Solid photography app to make your phone camera full featured.
AccuWeather: In the Midwest it is nice to know what is on the horizon. This app provides you with all the information you need.
Chrome: First choice browser.
Dolphin Browser: The browser I use when I need to employ Flash for classroom use.
Amazon Kindle: This is where most of my books are; so, it’s nice to have access on multiple devices.
Facebook: Allows me to connect with family and friends.
Jewels 2: My favorite handheld game. Infinity mode is the best.
Walmart: Savings Catcher saves me money each time I go to the store.
