Hey giffgaffers this is my 1st blog and I would like to share with you my top 8 android apps, I was asked if I wanted to write a blog and i jumped at the idea, I hope you guys like it.


1.Titanium Backup

This app is a lifesaver for the android users who like to use custom roms or even want to remove built in system bloatware, voted the number one root app on twitter in which i'm not surprised since this is a very powerful tool. you can backup, restore and even freeze apps. It supports android 1.5-4.0+ and has had over 4.5 million users. (needs root to use).

 


2. My Backup

My Backup is similar to titanium backup, with this app you can

- Freeze bloatware, system apps
- UnFreeze frozen applications
- Wipe Cache of applications
- Wipe Data of applications
- Uninstall applications
- Break the Android Market Link to Apps
- Link Apps to the Android Market
- Force Close applications

but also you can backup plenty of stuff ranging from your applications to mms to your system settings and even your music playlists.

here’s the list of everything you can backup - You can backup (with schedule option) to there online secure servers, or to your SD card, its your choice, you can backup your Applications, Photos, Contacts, Call log, Browser Bookmarks, SMS (text messages), MMS, Calendar, System Settings, Home Screens (including shortcut positions), Alarms, Dictionary, Music Playlists, and more.

 

3.Google +
Google+ is a social network, I find it to be unique from the others, it has a very simple but at the same time a very powerful UI, it's easy to navigate, and in a few clicks you can be having a hangout (video call) with your friends. I like the messenger part of google+ since you can have your own unique circles, which basically allows you to easily arrange your chat circles, you could have one for work, hobbies, interests, family and friends, basically anything you want, circles make it easy to keep in contact with the different groups of people in your life.


4.Adobe Flash Player

Well this one is basically self explanatory, Adobe flash player is used to let you watch flash videos and play games, it gives the user freedom to acc
ess their favorite interactive content and gives you a rich PC like web experience.

 

5.DSPManager

 

 

Now some of you may have never have heard of this app before, the reason behind this is that it's not available on the play market, it comes built in on custom cyanogenmod roms, it's a very good and powerful music equalizer. As i'm a big music fan and like my music loud and crisp, this app suited me perfectly.

 

6. Theme Chooser




Another app in which some of
you may never heard of and is not available in the play market is theme chooser, another app that comes built in with custom cyanogenmod roms. This app is great, it allows me to put whatever theme i want on my phone, whether i want my phone to look like a samsung, lg, or even a sony ericsson i can, plus there's a lot of other funky ones out there like the star wars or mario ones, or just the standard color ones like red,cyan, or green, the choices are limitless.

 

7. Avast Mobile Security




Avast mobile security is probably my favorite anti-virus program for my phone, its a very powerful and useful program and offers a wide range of very useful things, I love the fact that if you are rooted avast will protect itself from un-installment even after a factory reset, this has to be the best feature, meaning thieves have no way of getting rid of it easily. Another nifty feature of avast is the firewall, enabling the user to disable an app from using 3g/wi-fi /roaming mobile networks, although this is another feature what needs superuser rights (a.k.a root to work).

 

8. Zenonia 4





The main reasons I like this game is because you can get hours of enjoyment out of it, and best of all it's free and without those nasty ads, which is why it has made it onto my top 10, if you like RPG games then this is probably the game for you, it's very action packed with beautiful graphics and has a great storyline. You also get the choice of 4 characters in which you get one to choose from to join you on your adventure.



What I really like about android is that it's very open, I can use a variety of custom roms, kernels and apps that would otherwise not be available on the stock rom. One thing I really like is how easy it was to root and put a custom rom on my phone, thats not the case with every android phone, some can be very hard to do, but thats down to the manufacturer.

 




Ill be happy to answer any questions you may have :smileyhappy:.


I hope you enjoy my 1st ever blog.

Excellent blog , 

 

Some nice apps there ,

 

 I used to use go launcher ( and still think it's a good App ) but if you really want to make your android a little ( a lot really )  different from all the others  there's a new launcher that is really something out of the ordinary , it's called TSF Shell , it's not free and it's not cheap ,  but is very smooth and stylish  ( I tried  SPB Shell  , but personally I think TSF is better ) , if you like  your android to have a " wow " factor it could be the launcher for you .
