There are thousands of apps on the Google Play Store, all trying to grab your attention. And truth be told, 2019 was a slow year for apps, despite some of the big names still dominating the space.
In this article, we’ll take a look at some of the most popular Android apps of 2019/
Best Android apps of 2019
Google Drive is Android’s cloud storage solution and it has never let me down (to date). Android users get 15GB storage space for free when signing up, with premium packages available to those who need more.
The Google Drive suite of apps also includes Google Docs, Google Sheets, Google Photos, Gmail, Google Calendar and Google Keep. The latter is so amazing, it gets its own section.
Google Maps can be used for so much more than just navigating from point A to point B. It is the hub for all my travel plans; it’s where I get traffic data and find places of interest such as coffee shops, accommodation, etc.
You can create lists – I have lists for places and landmarks I want to visit. I also created a checklist for interesting accommodation spot. Google Maps now also comes with AR walking directions.
I used Podcast Republic for years (before switching over to Spotify Premium, that is) but I’ll still highly recommend it for non-Spotify people.
Podcast Republic allows you to manage your Podcasts, Radios, Audio books, YouTube channels, SoundCloud channels and RSS news/blog feeds all within a single app.
LastPass is a password manager which keeps all your login details secure in one place. The cross-platform app can be accessed from your PC, mobile device, and tablet.
You can also grab LastPass Authenticator to go along with it for added security.
One of Google’s most under-used apps, without a doubt. This little note-taking apps sure packs a punch. Sure, there are other more complex note-taking apps, but Keep’s simplicity is the thing that truly hooked me.
It’s effortless to use; you can search for notes easily – this helps when it gets to the point where you have more than 200 notes. Search by theme, search by assigned colour, search by keywords and hashtags, search any way you like.
In addition, it works well with other apps too: Set reminders, use the Google Assistant to save notes, use Google Docs to sync Keep notes, or use Google’s web apps with Keep.
