The android play store is like a sea of apps and there is so many apps available in every category for installing so it is hard to find which apps you actually need and work the best. In 2017 almost every app has been updated with new feature and in this list I have covered almost all category weather it is photography, news or browsing etc, so you can find what best work without individually installing and trying the apps.
Launcher: C launcher
In 2017 C launcher team has done an amazing job by updating the launcher app and giving much more features in only one app. C launcher is the launcher I like the most and use the most because it is very rich in features it can clean junk files, save battery and cleans ram only in one tap, hide apps and lock apps, it also includes a IOS style lock screen. Its like an all in one package so much features only in an app of just 10MB
Browser: Chrome canary
The normal google chrome is useless when it is compared to chrome canary. It loads websites at blazing speed like 2x than the traditional chrome and it also provides latest features from google as it recives updates weekly but its main problem is its unstability many users reporting that it force closes or doesn’t even start but honestly I didn’t faced any issue on this browser.
Music: retro music player
If you like the design of Itunes in IOS then this is the music player you need, it has a very unique design and its design is like half IOS and half android. It provides all the features that a music player must have.
