The Android OS is one of the most loved in the world, and the reason for this is not far-fetched.

The open-source nature of the software means you can customize your phone to a further extent than a lot of its rival, most notably the iOS. Besides that, you get access to a slew of games and apps exclusive to Androids. Sometimes it can be exhausting to keep up with new mobile game trends. If that sounds like you, this is the right piece for you.

Where to Get Your Apps
We don’t recommend going outside of the store to get any app whatsoever. That is because the apps that go onto the store have been verified safe by the Google Trust and Safety team. When you get your apps for third-party websites, you run the risk of inviting malicious software onto your device in the process. Once we have that covered, let’s look at a few outstanding apps on Playstore that promises to make life easier in a variety of aspects.

1. Games
The Android gaming experience is among the best out there. Even if you were a power user who uses the phone mainly for business, it wouldn’t hurt to have something on there to help you unwind. Dive into the games section of the Google Play Store and check out one of the top picks including, the Call of Duty, Asphalt, Sonic and PES franchises, to mention but a few. If you’re a heavy gamer, remember to bring an external charger with you at all times as mobile gaming can drain your battery very fast, especially ones that require internet connectivity. You don’t want to miss an important call or message because you’ve drained your phone in your downtime

2. Entertainment
Your phone should also be an entertainment hub for you. This will ensure you get to enjoy all the media content that comes onto your phone as seamlessly as possible. We’re all well acquainted with the likes of Netflix, WatchESPN, Spotify, but to make the most of your multi-media enjoyment, consider throwing a few podcasts into your daily content binge. Free podcast apps like Pocket Casts, Podcast Addict and BeyondPod are available on the Google Play store. Tune in while you commute, learning can be as easy and effortless as that! Regular housekeeping and management are essential to keep your device running as smoothly as possible from time to time. These utility apps perform a wide range of functions that will amplify your Android experience better. Assess what you need done and look at options that allow you to:

● Manage your RAM better
● Optimize your fonts and other display settings
● Allow you edit pictures and videos, etc.

4. Security
While you’re busy ramping up the phone’s performance, it’s important to take care of data and device security, too. To protect your personal details from Man-In-The-Middle attacks on unsecured public networks and to ensure security in online transactions, a VPN for Android is absolutely indispensable. It works to encrypt your internet traffic so third-parties like hackers will not be able to pry into your business in an interception attempt.

5. Productivity Apps
Your Android phone is more than a device that you play games on, use to take pictures/ media and communicate with. It could also make the difference in other parts of your life. To realize this, you would need to install productivity apps. Over time, we have found useful productivity apps in the Google Play Store that will allow you:

● Commit to a weight loss plan and follow through with you
● Help you save more money
● Allow you control your spending
● Manage your time and tasks better
● Get better at planning, and so much more.

6. Customizations
One of the biggest advantages of the Android platform over iOS and Windows is how much they allow you own the phone. This is a function of the various customizations and tweaks that you can make to the display, settings, themes and more. If you don’t want to work with the options that ship with your phone, you can usually get more in the store. From wallpapers to overall themes, there is rarely anything you can’t get to personalize your phone.
