App Directory: The Best Camera App For Android

Whether your Android phone has an amazing camera or a mediocre one, there are plenty of apps at Google Play that will help you take the best possible photos with it. We think Camera ZOOM FX is the best of those options, because it packs powerful features and helps you learn to take better photographs.


App Directory: The Best Calendar App For Android

Despite its unassuming name and interface, Business Calendar is — by a good margin — our favourite calendar app on Android. What we love most about it is its flexibility and ease of use.


The Best Photo Management App For Android

The default Android gallery is a nice enough app, but if you want something with a few more features — such as password-protecting certain photos or sorting them however you want — QuickPic is our favourite gallery replacement.


The Best Video Chat Application For Android

Video chat on smartphones has come a long way in a relatively short amount of time, and the tools available for Android have matured from gimmicky to genuinely useful. You have a lot of great options, but we think that Google Hangouts deserves the crown for the overall best and most well-integrated method to see and talk with friends.


App Directory: The Best Video Player For Android

Playing videos on Android can be frustrating. Fortunately, BSPlayer offers the best balance between features, compatibility and ease of use.


App Directory: The Best Address Book App For Android

If you’re looking for a smarter way to manage your contacts, Contacts+ for Android is your best option. It brings a number of features to the table that help you quickly get in touch with your contacts and keep up to date with them.


App Directory: The Best Web Browser For Android

There’s no shortage of great web browsers for Android, and which one you use is largely up to personal preference. If we had to pick one however, we still think Dolphin Browser is your best bet for speed, features, gestures and add-ons.


The Best News Reader Application For Android

Android has several great news readers and while many of them have gone by the wayside now that Google Reader is no more, others have stepped up to take centre stage. If we had to pick one that fits the needs of most people and packs in a ton of useful features, it would have to be the free, cross-platform, cross-device syncing Feedly.


App Directory: The Best Virtual Assistant For Android

The number of voice-activated “virtual assistants” for Android has exploded in recent years, ranging from the gimmicky and niche to the genuinely useful and broadly applicable. None of them are perfect, but we think that if you can get it on your device, Google Now’s rolled-in simplicity and array of genuinely useful tools make it the best personal assistant your can get on an Android device.


App Directory: The Best Comic Reader App For Android

Reading comics, particularly on tablets, is a delightful use of bright, vivid touchscreens. If you’re a heavy reader and want to bring your own files to Android, it’s hard to go wrong with Comic Rack.
