10 useful Android applications to install and start using now

Are you new to Android and looking for applications (apps) to install on your TECNO, Samsung, Sony, Huawei, Xiaomi or Infinix smartphone? Or perhaps you’re not exactly new but would still love to have a list of apps that will serve you excellently. Here are ten (10) for you to start with:

  1. WhatsApp

    WhatsApp has become so universal that if you are not using it, you are missing out. It is the new SMS. But it is SMS on fleek. You can set up Groups e.g. for your family, inner clique, or even to provide tutorials to a class or to run an online seminar. Awesome!

  2. Instagram

    Want to get in on the new narcissism and show off your selfies and photos of the things that matter to you? Instagram is what the doctor ordered.

  3. Flash Share (Xendar)

    If you share files a lot across different devices, Flash Share does it fastest. Bluetooth doesn’t even come close. Flash Share also lets you share your mobile internet access with other users in your group, so you can forget about WiFi hotspot too.

  4. Evernote

    Evernote is an awesome work tool that lets you create and edit text notes, snap and save photos, attach documents for easy access across devices and to share with others. You can set up reminders too. One of the best features of Evernote for me is the ability to save a webpage I am reading for later reference. And now, there’s a Work Chat feature that improves your team collaboration. You can stay logged into your account on multiple devices too.

  5. BOOM Player

    This music player gives you access to a huge library of music from Nigerian artistes. Want to stream or download? Your choice. The app also lets you access the lyrics to playing songs, as well as edit the meta details of each music file. Priceless. But Boom Player does more than just music. It supports video streaming/download as well. With TECNO Own The Stage karaoke show going on right now, those who miss it on DSTV don’t have to miss out totally. Watch it for free on BOOM player.

  6. Pocket Casts

    This is a versatile podcast player. You can set it to auto-download podcasts while you sleep, you can speed up playback, and you can share your lists, among other cool features.

  7. Google Keep

    If you do not like the business-like nature of Evernote, you should consider Keep. In is not as comprehensive, but the interface is breezier and certainly more colourful. With Keep, you can record voice notes, draw up your shopping list, write notes, and even add photos. You can set up location-based reminders so you get beeped when you are about driving through or past your favourite store or market.

  8. Buffer

    Buffer app allows you to schedule your tweets and Facebook updates for publishing at specified times later. It is great for people who work with social media. The app is free, but requires some payment for usage at some point.

  9. Sunrise Calendar app
    Screenshot_Sunrise calendar
    has been described by some as the first great calendar app for Android. It syncs with Google Calendar, Exchange, iCloud, Facebook, Evernote, Foursquare, TripIt, Todoist, Trello and more to make sure you’re always up to date with all the events happening in your life. If you want a very comprehensive calendar app for all your calendar/reminder services, this is it.

  10. Endomondo

    Are you team fitfam? Endomondo is a good app to help with your goal of keeping trim and fit.

You would have noticed that I left out twitter and Facebook. That is deliberate, as they usually come pre-installed on most Android smartphones. Have you discovered/installed any new apps recently? Do share five (5) of them with us. Perhaps you would also love to share your five (5) most used apps.

    Nice list. But, there a whole lot more great apps that could have been included.
    But, can we be having new list every week, if possible?

    I saw the boom player on a friend’s Camon C8 and fell in love with it instantly. I picked up my phone and searched for the app to download. Saw it no where, can anyone help?

      Hello Joel,

      The Boom Player is exclusive to selected TECNO Phones for now–TECNO Boom J5, J7, Camon C5, C8, TECNO Phantom 5.

      To enjoy the BOOM Player’s unmatched music ability right now, you will need to own one of the phones above.

    Evernote is great. Replaced color note as my favourite note taking app few weeks ago. Boom player isn’t that great. Installed on an infinix hot note 2 days ago and was disappointed with the lack of equalizer and other advanced features of power amp. Maybe cause it’s running on an infinix phone sha. Will try again and check the online streaming feature

    I used to be an Endomondo fan until I discovered MapMyFitness. It covers a lot more fitness routines than Endomondo and it’s easy to edit your routine if, like me, you occasionally forget to log it.

    Number one in technology, number one in relevance and content, Good one tecno… In love with the Phantom5

      Lovely choices, Mr Mo! I look forward to more of these, I use the EverNote and the Boom Player and these are great apps I recommend to everyone!

    SwiftKey keyboard could learn from one’s history, remember and master any ‘word’. Google Chrome and its top notch html 5 compatibility level. MX Player. The fast growing imo. Also, what can you do for the Vine?

    The boom player is one of the best music players Ive ever had. I love it!

    Flash share is awesome. Had to install it on my Tecno so that I can receive apps without having to download them.

    Some pretty snazzy apps there. I would have loved to see some games as well. Although my personal faves are the flash share, boom player and buffer.

      Yeah. I saw the boom player and thought it was very fresh. Props to Tecno for finding a way to differentiate from the pack.

      The boom player really takes the cake. It’s neat and smooth. I’ll recommend it. Tecno has done a nice thing here.

    I like this list it’s really quite useful. But I don’t understand why some of those apps only work on Tecno phones.

    • November 4, 2015 at 10:29 am

      It is way of giving the users a unique experience and exclusivity. I’m sure people looking for a phone of 25k would rather buy the Camon than Huawei or Infinix cos of this.

    A good list here. I’ll need to get on that boom player bandwagon. The flas share does not work on my Samsung. Tecno might just be the solution.

    Rocket Player for Music
    Expense Manager/Wally for Financial Records
    Android Download Manager for Downloads
    Moon+ Reader for eBooks
    Opera Max/No Root Firewall for data compression/denying apps Internet access

    because it’s Android, the list is really endless
