We’re in the era of Smartphones so it’s worth a try making your device have more features than other devices of the same model. I’ll drop a list of apps that’ll make your Android device smarter.
1. Assistant Ai
This app is one of my favorites. It provides you with a virtual assistant that helps you with many tasks. You can name your assistant and change the looks. I named mine, Stephanie. So when I say or type “Stephanie, Check my mail” – she automatically opens my mail. Here’s a list of some things my assistant can do, yours can also do the same.
Turn On/Off Wifi
Turn On/Off Bluetooth
Check my mail and send email
Update my Facebook status
Book A Flight
Search For Places
Calculate simple MATHS problems
Check live scores
Find new movies and songs
Check movie details
Check Breaking News
Read and send SMS
Set A Reminder And Alarms
Make Calls… AND MORE… I won’t drop any more spoilers, download the app and find out more. 🙂 .
Normally a default mobile alarm goes off when you stop it but with the assistant , it’ll definitely bug you till you wake up. She works well with an active Internet connection. You’ll still get alerts for your normal reminders and alarm without Internet connection if you’ve set it previously online.
2. CS Scanner
This app practically turns your smartphone to a portable scanner. You can scan any documents on the go directly from your phone camera. The only issue is that the quality of the document scanned depends on the quality of your camera. I’ll recommend devices with camera of 8 mega pixels and above
Gone are the days when you hear a song you really like and you don’t know the name. It’s always annoying if you really like the song and it’s playing on a radio but you can’t download it because you don’t know the name. MusixMatch eliminates all these problems, All you have to do is turn on your data connection, Open The MusixMatch app then Click On Identify lyrics. Place your device near the source of the song. You’ll get all the details of the song including the lyrics. Sounds cool right.. you’re becoming a geek…
Shazam is almost like MusixMatch. It’s basically almost the same thing. Just that it has a totally different UI.
This app helps when you’re watching your favorite movie and a WhatsApp message pops up, and you don’t wanna turn off your data or You’re chatting with someone special and you also want to watch a movie at the same time. All you have to do is play the movie with Moboplayer, minimize it then continue what you’re doing with you’re phone. The movie should appear in a small box on your screen. I recommend using a device with at least 1gb of ram if you want
this app to run without glitches.
This app solves mathematical problems and shows you the full steps and working
used to solve the problem. Students can use this to study.. From Differentiation To Algebra and Trigonometry and other more… All you need to do is to type in the equation. It can also plot graphs. So this app is a must have for every student.
7. Photo Math
It does the same work as Malmath, however Photomath brings in one Unique feature. You can simply scan the equation with your camera and it’ll solve it for you
8. Solo Learn Apps
Shout out to all the programmers and Web Developers. Solo learn develops apps that you can use to learn programming on the go. It also provides consoles that you can use to code and test how the codes works.
There’s a console for HTML, CSS, C#, C++, Python, PHP and More.. To download any of the consoles

Play a smart prank on your friends. Ask them to take a selfie with you using the MSQRD app. They’ll be so shocked once they see their change..
P. S. : I’m not responsible if your phone gets thrown away due to shock.. Enjoy
Well that’s my top 10 for this year.. Have any other ones? Just add it through the comment box

It has become a habit of applications to receive functionality in a non-uniform manner, especially with regard to different versions for Android and iOS. Not being the exception to the rule, Spotify also receives functionality at different times in its various versions.
After being released for the Android version last May, Spotify for iOS received finally the popular “Sleep Timer” feature. That is, iPhone users can also fall asleep listening to their favorite music / podcast without any problem.
How to use the new Spotify feature for iOS
To use the “Sleep Timer” feature is very simple. After selecting the desired song, you will need to click on the “three dots” icon in the upper right corner and select the “Sleep Timer” option.
Then you will only need to choose the timeout where Spotify will be playing the song. You will be able to choose times between 5 and 60 minutes.
Also, for whom doesn’t have a dedicated playlist for when you are getting ready for sleep, the app has also released a new section called “Sleep Hub”. Here you will find a wide list of perfect song suggestions to accompany you in a true “beauty sleep.”
If you still can’t see the functionality on your iPhone, don’t worry. It has been officially confirmed that the feature is being released starting today. However, as usual, it will reach users in a phased manner.
Google Photos remains one of my favorite apps, presenting itself as the perfect way to keep all your photos and videos organized in one place. In addition, they are accessible virtually anywhere and on any device.
As one of the most popular Google Apps, they continue to invest a lot of resources in developing and implementing new features. The latest addition will help you keep albums organized by making it easy to find what you’re really looking for.
A small detail that can save you a lot of time.
The new implementation may go unnoticed for many users, but it is no less important. In the albums tab, Google Photos will start displaying a new option, which allows you to organize your albums according to different conditions.
For now, at this early stage, you will be able to keep albums organized by what has the most recent photo, which you modified less recently or simply in alphabetical order. Most likely, Google will continue to develop this new implementation to make it even easier to find the album you want.
This new implementation is coming first hand to Android smartphone users and is not yet available for iOS or the web version. However, it is important to note that it is being launched through Google’s servers. That is, it will not reach all users at the same time.
In order to receive the new implementation, you need to have the latest version of the App, so make sure you don’t have any updates available.
Although it has not been officially confirmed, it is believed that once reaching all Android users, the new feature will eventually also be available for iOS and the web version of Google Photos.
