There are thousands of apps available for Android, ranging from great games to really useful tools that will help you with everything from shopping to managing your bank balance. Here are ten of the greatest.
Tales of Illyria
Tales of Illyria is a fantastic gaming app available on Android that plays like a combination of Oregon Trail and Fighting Fantasy. If either of those references are lost on you, just take my word for it, this is easily one of the best games on Android.
Zombie Exodus is another great gaming app that is entirely text based, but don’t let that fool you, this game is as gripping as it is addictive.
You’ll never need to carry a torch again, so long as you have this installed on your smartphone. TeslaLED can transform your phone’s camera flash into a powerful light that’s great for lighting the way in dark spots.
If you want to use your smartphone to control your PC wirelessly, then look no further than Unified Remote. It can shut down your PC, work as a wireless mouse and has a ton of options for PC applications including Media Player, Netflix and Spotify.

If you’re a football fan, then Fotmob is a must have app on your smartphone. You can select your favourite teams, and then get up to date notifications and alerts during matches. You’ll never need to wonder what the score is ever again when you can’t make it to a match!
If you like sending picture messages to your friends, then you should really consider using WhatsApp. It allows you to send picture messages free of charge using a wifi connection, and you can also send normal messages for free as well.
If you like to shop on Amazon, then you should certainly add its app to your smartphone. The only problem with this app is that it makes it all too easy to buy whatever catches your fancy in quick record time. The interface is very slick, and you can find what you’re looking for in an instant.
