Android has got the success ladders from earlier due to its features and useful applications. It is getting better day by day as its improved versions are launched continuously. In this post, I am going to mention few useful applications of android phone which every android user should have to make the best use of it.


Evernote is used as a multipurpose application. It allows us to save notes, capture images, create to-do lists, record voice reminders etc. We can create wish lists using Evernote and also list our future plans like what tasks we have to perform a particular day. Web pages or articles can be directly saved in the form of notes using Evernote. This app is absolutely free.


Truecaller is again a very useful application which I personally recommend as it has few unique features. This application is used to trace the unknown callers generally. Besides it, this is also used for managing call, blacklisting contacts and keep you away from spam callers. It has the widest database of contact numbers.

Tiny Flashlight + LED may be used in dark as it allows to use the flash or LED of the camera as a torch. Along with this important feature it also contains different lightning like Warning Lights, Police Lights, Color Flashlight, Strobe Flashlight, Morse code, and Text to Morse, Manual Morse Code, and Camera Light.
