So you’ve just bought yourself a shiny new Android phone, and you’re setting it up ready to use in your day-to-day life. But there’s one important thing you should be thinking of at this point, ‘what apps should I download?’ There are an awful lot of apps available, and barring the usual services, like Facebook or Twitter, that you want access to on the go, what should you choose? To help, here are seven important Android apps to help you get started.
One of the best things about owning a smartphone is that you have a device in your hands that can be used to look up any questions you might have, and can record any of the random thoughts that pop into your head at any given time. For the latter you’re going to need something that probably isn’t included in your device: a note taking app. Google’s Keep is probably one of the most useful around.
Not only does Keep allow you to make notes using text or voice input, it also syncs with your Google account and allows you to access your notes from a variety of different devices. Since you’ll have a Google account to download apps anyway, it means that you don’t have to register for another service like you would if you were using Evernote.
Plus, you can even colour code your notes to keep them nice and organised.
