Android Apps and Games

Updated on September 22, 2012

Google Android is an Operating System for mobiles. It can be usually found in ‘smartphones’. It is an advanced OS which features user-friendly environment, icons to applications, wallpapers, and has its own market, called Google Play (changed from Android Market to Google Play).

There are millions of applications and games out there in the market, and I have chosen some of them as my favorites.


1. Cartoon Camera

A simple app that lets you take photos in cartoony form. There are many other effects such as color, negative, sepia, colored edges etc. It also lets you to adjust brightness, crop, change saturation and many more. Download for free from Google Play.

2. Wattpad

This application has thousands of books and novels which you can save and read for FREE. It has more than 12 categories! You can publish your own story on Wattpad. Actually, users are the ones who publish the stories there, but they are of very good quality.

3. PicSay

Another picture customizer app. It allows us to easily edit our pictures by adding text boxes, hats, goggles, and many more objects. It can change the brightness, crop, change the “temperature” of image etc.

4. ConvertPad

It is a very helpful application. It can convert currencies too. It supports more than 150 currencies. It has all the common mathematical units. Weight, temperature, length, density, acceleration, pressure, time, angles etc. are some examples.

5. Compass

It shows directions. A perfect compass viewer with exact locations. You can change the type of compass to classic, modern, digital etc. Shows the location of the mobile with longitudes and latitudes too.

6. AVG Antivirus Free

This is a perfect antivirus app for your android device. It scans every new app and game installed on the device. It automatically detects any harmful app. It has helped me keep my device virus free!

7. Dolphin Browser HD

The best and easiest browser I have ever used, Dolphin Browser HD. It’s size is not much, and it has the interface similar to Google Chrome and Firefox. You can add many add-ons (extensions) to Dolphin Browser HD. You can easily save pages, files and images. The best browser for Android.

8. ES File Explorer

There are many ‘explorers’ in the Market. The best one for me is ES File Explorer. It is very simple and also has an App Manager. It also has FTP Connection. Its size is not so large; therefore this is a good explorer for Android.


A dictionary app which shows meaning to words and phrases in a blink of eyes. It requires Internet connection. It also has thesaurus. You can easily swap between Dictionary and Thesaurus.

A great app to prank your friends! This app can make fake calls, SMSs and also put the logs of Calls and SMSs in your device! You can customize the image of a contact too.

      Unfortunately, Cartoon Wars is incompatible with my device! I will surely play Stick Cricket as I had heard about it from my friends. Thanks for stopping by!
