The best Android apps for almost any occassion

Welcome to our updated listing of our favorite Android apps. The goal here is simple: No matter what kind of app you’re looking for, we’re hoping we have something listed that could help you out. All of the links lead directly back to the Google Play Store, so you can download them immediately and the blocks of categories below can guide you to exactly what type of app you want to find. We’re an app library built to serve you, Androiders. Click on one of the categories and you’ll zip right to one of these great apps. We’ll update this article every few months with some new categories and picks.

We hope you enjoy! If you want to suggest an app (not one that you are paid to promote, please), treat us to a compliment, or troll us mercilessly, use the comments below. (Please don’t troll. That was a joke.)

Updated on 11-02-2015 by Simon Hill: Removed some apps that have been discontinued or decreased in quality, edited existing descriptions, fixed up links, and added nine new awesome apps to the list.
