Best Free Android Apps (Utilities)

Android has come a long way since its birth. We now have Android 4.2 Jelly Bean for a buttery smooth user experience, Photosphere feature, and whatnot, which is its latest iteration. Its application store, known as the Google Play Store, is now almost as big and as extensive as the Apple App Store in its repository of apps with almost 700,000 applications. And yes, many are free albeit ads-sponsored.

A lot of applications have also been carried over by major app developers from iOS to Android, which makes the latter almost at par with the former in terms of quality applications to offer. Do note that not every application available in the Play Store is compatible to every Android smartphone. Certain apps have specific requirements such as a certain screen resolution, RAM, internal storage, graphics chip, and CPU clock-speed. Well, enough about this and let's start with my review.

Let me enumerate my favorite FREE Android apps at the moment. My focus would be on UTILITIES on this one.

1. AntiVirus FREE - AVG offers free, top-rated, real-time antivirus and antitheft protection for Android smartphones & tablets. AVG AntiVirus FREE for Android protects you from harmful viruses, malware, spyware and text messages and helps keep your personal data safe. This one is very easy to use.

2. Where's My Droid - The first "find your phone" app on the Android Market continues to get better and better. Now with an online Commander and a more user friendly interface, it is easier then ever to track down your missing phone. Where's My Droid can turn the ringer volume up and make your phone ring. The app can also get the GPS coordinates with a link to Google maps if you're not near enough to your phone to hear the ringer. Definitely worth downloading!

3. History Eraser - It's a history eraser for Android devices, and it can clean history of apps by only one tap. It's similar to the "ccleaner" on PC. It can help you to protect your privacy, and it can also help you to free up the internal storage. No root permission required. This app comes in handy.

4. ConvertPad - Unit Converter - It's a simple but powerful unit converter. ConvertPad is intuitive and easy to use. It features fast, real time currency and unit conversion in a clean interface.



5. Currency Converter - Convert 190+ currencies and four precious metals using benchmark OANDA Rates. Free currency converter uses OANDA Rates—the same daily filtered exchange rates used by auditing firms and banks.

6. Addons Detector - Want to quickly see which ads and tools each app uses? Addons Detector detects addons used by your installed applications and has tools to find push notification ads. It's a great way to see what advertising agencies other developers use, and what tools they have integrated.

7. AirPush Detector - This is a simple Android application that detects other installed applications which appear to use known notification ad frameworks and offers the user the ability to easily uninstall them.

8. Flashlight - Instantly turn your device into a really bright flashlight. It's the ultimate lighting tool that takes full advantage of the LED light. Strobe/Blinking Mode is also supported.



9. Advanced Task Killer - Advanced Task Killer is also known as ATK. It is a tool to kill applications running. ATK is often used to kill app and clean memory. We do suggest that people who use ATK manually kill apps instead of auto killing apps.

10. Adobe Flash Player - This app has already been removed by Adobe on the Google Play Store but it doesn't mean that you will no longer need it. Thousands of games and videos are still encoded using Adobe Flash and you'll definitely want to sideload it to your device. There’s nothing complicated that you need to do – just download the Flash Player APK, install it with a file manager and make sure plug-ins are enabled in the browser.

So there you have it! These are my Top 10 most useful UTILITIES applications for Android that can be downloaded from the Google Play Store for FREE. I hope you like them and find them useful as well.

Til then...
