10 Coolest Free Android Apps You Need Right Now!


Welcome back guys, I’m ThioJoe and today I’ve
got a list of ten really cool and free Android apps that you’ll definitely want to check
out if you don’t have them already. And these won’t be in any special order, they’re
all pretty cool. Anyway, let’s get into it. First up, Snapseed. This is probably one of the best if not THE
best photo editing apps I’ve come across so far, and it’s actually made by Google themselves. The reason I think it’s so great is that it
has all the basic photo adjustments like brightness, contrast, saturation, white balance, sharpness,
and everything else you’d expect, but it also has some really cool advanced tools as well. For example, it has curves adjustment, so
you can finely tune the brightness and contrast. And possibly the coolest tool is the “perspective”
tool, which warps the image in such a way that kind of makes it look like you took the
photo from another angle, and automatically fixes the cropped edges too. Pretty awesome. And of course, it has a ton of premade filters
as well you can use. So if you like taking photos and need just
a bit more control, this is something to check out. Next up number two, is Flow by Amazon. This app is more or less a glorified barcode
scanner, but it can definitely be useful in certain situations. Basically what you do is point the camera
at a barcode for some product, and it will look up what the thing is, then show you the
price on Amazon. You can scan things back to back, and it also
makes a list of the things you just scanned. What I typically use this for is when I’m
in a store looking to buy something, and I want to know if I can get it cheaper on Amazon. Instead of having to search for the thing,
try to figure out which version is the right one and all that, I can just scan the barcode
and instantly know how the price compares. Then I can see if the store will do a price
match, or if I need to just buy it right from Amazon. So pretty basic, but it has a cool interface
and can be useful. Number three is definitely a neat one, Google
Opinion Rewards. This is one I’ve talked about before, it’s
an App by Google where they occasionally ask you some survey questions, and then give you
Google Play Store credit in exchange. The surveys are typically very short and easy,
like you might answer two multiple choice questions and get 50 cents credit. So it’s not like you’re going to make a lot
from it, but it can add up over time. I’ve had the app for a couple years and earned
about 50 bucks total, and it’s kinda nice to have some credit on your account if you
come across a paid app you want. Though the surveys seem to come pretty randomly,
some times I’ve gotten multiple surveys in one day, other times theres weeks between
surveys. Next, number four, “Mr. Number”. This is a great app for identifying and blocking
potential spam or scam phone calls. It has a bunch of different settings that
allow you to filter phone calls from numbers that are known scams, suspected spam, or even
unknown hidden callers. But what’s more useful is that if you get
a call from a number you don’t know, you can look at reports about that number from other
users on the app. For example, you might look up a number and
see everyone reporting that it’s a credit card offer, or that they called about some
other scam. And if you really want to lock things down,
you can just have it block calls from any number that’s not in your contacts at all,
but that would be an extreme case I think. It’s worth checking out. Number five, feedly. This is a news reader app that gives you all
the news stories and articles from any news sources you choose. And in addition to the app, you can use their
website as well, feedly.com. So I have a few different groups set up for
different catagories, like all the technology news in one, science in the other, that sort
of thing. It’s like a much better version of the old
RSS feeds you used to see. The interface is nice, it shows you a little
header image that goes with the article so you don’t have to just read the headlines. So it’s a great way to quickly get all the
news you want to know about without having to check every website individually. Moving on, number six, Parallel Space. This is definitely one of my favorites just
because it’s so unique. This app basically allows you to clone apps
on your phone and run separate instances of them. This means if you have an app that only allows
you to log into one account at once, you can clone it and have one logged into one account,
and a second with another account. For example, you may have seen in previous
videos I have two snapchat icons on my phone, one is just Snapchat, and the other is “Snapchat
Plus”, and the plus one is just a cloned version. So one is my public account and another is
my private account, and I don’t have to log out to switch between them, I just launch
one or the other. To use it you just open it up, pick an app
you want to clone, and then it does it. It’s not perfect though, and sometimes the
cloned apps just won’t work. They’ll either crash, or not let you log in,
or some other issue. But those issues get fixed after updates. I’d say this is one of the more useful apps
I’ve come across so far. Onto number 7, Google Trips. This is a relatively new app from Google that
is meant to help you plan trips for places you’re visiting. So you type in what city you’re going to be
in, and it will give you lists of things to do, places to eat, transporation options,
and a bunch of other info. And it also ties in with your Google account,
so if you have any hotel reservations, it will see that in your email and automatically
show you some suggestions based on that. So if you want to know where to eat, you can
look up what are the top spots, the ratings, different types of food, that sort of things. Of course you could even use it for your own
city if you want to find something new to do. Just a neat way to figure out how to spend
your time. Now, number 8, Google Keep. This one you may already have preloaded onto
your phone, but if you’re not using it then you’re missing out. Keep is a very powerful note taking tool to
say the least. Of course you can type text notes to write
something down, but you can also add images, check box lists, and audio recordings to your
notes. And you can set reminder times so it will
give you a notification for the note whenever you want. But probably the best thing about it is that
it all syncs to the cloud through your Google account, and you can access all your notes
through any device when you’re logged in, through “keep.google.com”. So if you’re on your phone or computer, and
you want to copy a bunch of text or something between the devices, you can just paste it
into a Keep note, and it will sync to everything. This is also useful if you want to type up
a long reminder, you can type it out more easily on your computer keyboard, then copy
it on your phone, instead of having to type it all out on your phone’s keyboard. And what I’d also recommend is putting the
keep widget right on your home screen, so you can always have your notes and reminders
visible, and you’ll never forget about anything. And that’s just a quick run down. There’s really a ton you can do with the app. Alright coming near the end, number 9, is
Authy. Ahh you know I’ve talked about this one before,
and you know it’s one of my favorites. Authy is an excellent app for two factor authentication
codes. As I’ve said many times before, you should
be using two-factor authentication on any sites that allow it. How it usually works is that on a site that
supports it, you enable two factor authentication, so any time you want to log in from a new
computer, you not only need to type in your password, but also type in one of the rolling
codes from a code generator app, like Authy. There are several of them out there, but I
especially like Authy because it allows you to back up all your code tokens encrypted,
so if you lose your phone or get a new one, you don’t have to set everything up again. And code generator apps are much better than
text message codes, because you don’t have to worry about cell phone reception, plus
you’re safe even if someone were to compromise your cell phone account to receive your text
messages. With this, if they don’t have your physical
phone, they can’t access your accounts. Super important if you’re not using two factor
authentication already. And finally, number 10. Actually I have some honorable mentions after
this, so it’s not really the end yet. Anyway, number 10 is Cam Scanner. Very useful app for when you need to scan
or take a picture of a document, but you don’t want to go through the hassle of scanning
it on your computer. With this app, you just take a picture of
the document, and it will automatically resize, crop, and fix the perspective of the picture
so it looks pretty similar to an actual scanner. And on black and white images, it will remove
the background too. One obvious use is for saving pictures of
receipts, whether you’re keeping track of expenses, or just so you have them in general. Alright so now onto a few honorable mentions. First, “WiFi Analyzer”. This is one not many of you will need but
I know there are those of you out there who will. This one looks at all the different WiFi signal
bands around you, and can tell you not only which access points have the strongest signal,
but also which individual channels are least congested. So if you’re setting up your router, you can
use this to choose the best WiFi channel. Another app is Google Duo, which is kind of
like Android’s answer to Facetime. If any of your other contacts have the app,
you can call them up and do a video chat, and it’s cross platform too, not just for
android. Only problem is it doesn’t really come preloaded
to phones yet, so you’ll have to go tell your friends to download it before you can use
it. And the final honorable mention is “Rocker
Locker”, a simple utility with one purpose. It changes the volume buttons so that instead
of controlling the ring volume by default, they control the media volume on the phone. I like this app because I always keep my phone
on vibrate and rarely every change it. So if I want to change the volume of everything
else on the phone, instead of having to press a volume key, clicking the dropdown, then
changing the volume, now the volume buttons do it directly. And in the rare cases I do want to change
the ringer volume, I can just use the dropdown for that. Very useful for me at least. So that’s it those are a bunch of cool free
android apps I hope you like. If you want to keep watching, I’ll put some
other videos I’ve made right here, you can click on them even if you’re on a phone. Also if you want to subscribe, I make new
videos 3 times a week, tuesday thursday saturday, and consider clicking the bell next to the
subscribe button for notifications as well. So let me know what you guys think I’m looking
forward to hearing from you, and as usual thanks for watching I’ll see you next time,
have a good one.
