Trulia - Real Estate & Homes

An amazing app which shows real estate listings of homes for sale and rent. Real estate search has never been so easy! The app shows a map of nearby homes for sale and/or apartments for rent.

There are many various filters in the app to exactly match your criteria. Trulia provides exhaustive information, i.e. home facts,  a collection of vivid photos and many more. You will find the house of your dreams thanks to this app!

We can say that this is a more advanced version of a notepad, a multi-function pad. It allows you to save and share the things important to you (e.g. movies to see, books to read and so forth) and organize them into notebooks.

The app contains many great in-build features, such as, storing things found on the web, clipping an article, snapping a photo, scanning a barcode etc. The app is free and free of ads!

avast! Mobile Security

This is a top rated Android antivirus and security application. This is an all-in-one app. Its main features include Antivirus, Privacy Report, Anti-Theft, Network Meter, Web Shield, SMS/Call filtering, Firewall and others. Highly recommended by many Android experts.

Many apps of this kind use much battery, but I didn't encounter that problem with this app. If you want to make sure your phone is safe, use avast! Mobile Security.

SwiftKey 3 Keyboard

If you are looking for a reliable alternative to the stock Android keyboard, choose SwiftKey 3 Keyboard. This is a paid app but you can test it for a month if you don't know if you want to pay for it.

For me it's one of the best alternative keyboards. It is highly customizable and there are many pre-installed themes (a few of them shown on the pictures below).

Sleep as Android

This is an alarm clock completely different than other apps of this kind. This is an alarm clock with a sleep cycle tracker. This app lets you track your sleep and wake up in an optimal sleep phase.

Its main features include sleep graph history, stats (sleep deficit and deep sleep), sharing, nature alarms (birds, storm, sea etc.), lullabies, CAPTCHA to wake up on time, recording sleep talk and snoring.  Have you ever had  a better alarm clock?

That is yet another productivity app but this is my favorite one. It has great looks and is very intuitive and simple. When you are adding new tasks, the app will predict what you want to type.

Its main features include cloud sync, speech recognition, alerts, snoozing tasks, notes, widgets, missed call, auto complete and many more. 

Do anything you want with this great Android app.

Pixlr Express

This is an amazing app and it's free! Photo editing has never been so easy! Pixlr Express has more than 600 special effects, overlays and borders to choose from.

Its main features include, for instance, touch up, focal blur, color splash,  contrast, blurring, sharpening, cropping, rotating, autofixing, special effects and many more. The app is very simple, intuitive and, indeed, performs miracles. 

You don't need Photoshop any more! :)

Kindle for Android

This Amazon app allows you to read thousands of books on your Android device, including hundreds of free Kindle books. In my opinion, this is one of the best readers ever.

The best thing about this reader is that you don't need to have  a Kindle to use this app. You can choose from more than a million books available in the Kindle Store.
