I’m keeping this list solely for apps released this year and not for must-have apps in 2015. or those that have received a major upgrade. And they are all absolutely free. Before picking up the forks, resist the urge to argue about their release date or that some of them also have premium versions. The idea is this: the app came into the spotlight in 2015 and you can download and use it for free, whether you want to spend money to unlock the paid version or not.

So without further ado, let’s dive in.


If I had to pick Android App of the Year, I would choose Truemessenger without a second thought. This is an SMS app that once you use it will make you wonder how you lived without it. Truemessenger identifies unknown numbers and blocks spam texts. unknown numbers and block spam — unknown numbers and block spam It will take a while and then be smart enough to know what is spam and what is not — depending on your usage.

The app also adds «Undo Send» for texts, like Gmail does for emails. so you can fix the error. Truemessenger is completely free, but not available in all regions. But don’t worry, you can still take the Truemessenger APK and manually install it on Android

facebook hello

Truemessenger comes from the technology used by Truecaller, which identifies calls from unknown numbers. This year, Facebook has stepped into the game with Facebook Hello, which shows caller information from Facebook. Compared I found that Facebook Hello was pretty good at providing some useful information in addition to who is just calling.

For example, if the caller was a friend, I could see the information that it was their birthday! Plus, it syncs with Facebook Messenger for free voice calls too.

Google Now Launcher

If you don’t have a Nexus or Motorola device, your Android phone’s interface probably won’t look exactly like stock Android, as most manufacturers customize these by adding But if you want to enjoy the simple look of Google Android without rooting your phone, Google Now Launcher can do just that.

Pintasking is an incredible app, it’s a shame Google hasn’t brought it to Android yet. Just like Facebook chat heads headers, Pintasking can collapse any app into a floating app icon. This makes multitasking much easier as you can easily navigate between different applications without triggering multi-window mode.

The free version of Pintasking lets you minimize two apps to floating icons, but you can buy the Pro version ($3.99) for unlimited icons. However, the coolest part is Pintasking’s Alt-Tab equivalent. Swipe down from the left corner of the notification bar or swipe up from the home button will automatically take you to the last app you used; do it again and you will be back to the first application.

Yes, it works just like Alt-Tab on Windows and it has drastically changed how you multitask on your Android.

native clipboard


Here we have another «Google should make this part of Android» app. Android isn’t really bad at copy and paste, but use Native Clipboard for a while and you’ll wonder how you ever lived without it. It enhances copy and paste functionality on Android allowing you to copy text in any application and continue copying without losing what you copied earlier.

You can even tag some copied texts with different colors and attach them — like your home address — so you don’t have to type it in every time! Whenever you need to paste it, double tap on the text input field or open the app to find all copied texts.

Word, Excel and Powerpoint for Android are optimized for touch screens and work great on all sizes, whether it’s a 4.5″ phone or a 10″ tablet. If you’re using a tablet with a stylus or something like Galaxy Note phones, you’ll love using Powerpoint and Excel — both apps work fantastic with a stylus.

I’ve actually managed to write entire articles in Word for Android without missing a full-fledged document editor. These are game changers.

Bonus: Firefox 42+


I wanted to refrain from updating as much as possible, but I’m going to make an exception for Mozilla Firefox. In version 42 for Android, Firefox had a new feature that made me switch from Chrome and never come back. It’s called Tab Queuing and it’s amazing

Basically, whenever you click on a link on Twitter, Facebook, or other apps, it opens in Firefox, but without switching to Firefox immediately. Instead, you can continue browsing as you were; Firefox will save any link you click. When you’re ready to read your links, go to Firefox and all your saved links will be loaded. It’s a fantastic way to use the web and is better than Link Bubble as you get all the benefits of a reliable browser like Firefox for Android.
