Top 10 Free Android Apps You Might not Have Discovered Yet

Updated on October 20, 2013

Top 10 Undiscovered Free Android Apps

Top 10 Free Android Apps 2012 - The Android market is full of applications; but how many of them have you even looked at, let alone downloaded? Not many! At this current moment in time there are about 381,000 apps on the android market, of which just over 30% are predicted to be low quality and useless. How are you meant to find good, high quality applications when there's so much rubbish to sift through? Well, I've done some of the hard work for you! I've trawled the market place looking for what I think are the top 10 android apps that are largely undiscovered. I hope you find my top 10 android apps useful, and add a few apps to your phone you didn't already know about.

Google Chrome Beta App - Best Android Apps 2012
Google Chrome Beta App - Best Android Apps 2012

1: Google Chrome Beta

Application

I wasn't sure if I should include this on this list or not as it's only a Beta application but then again, it's Google Chrome on your mobile. it's got to be something worth taking note of, surely? Google Chrome is currently very close to being the world's most popular web browser, so, with Googles integration of an Android based version of the same thing, this could easily become a very popular application very quickly. However, if you want to try it, you'll need to be running Android 4. 0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

2: OneNote Mobile

Application

This is a fairly new app by Microsoft that allows you to use your Android phone as a notepad, allowing you to add pictures, bullet points and more. More about why OneNote mobile is on of my top 10 android apps can be found here: OneNote Mobile on Android Review

Download OneNote Mobile

HeavenHell Android App
HeavenHell Android App

3: HeavenHell

Game

This is the first in my top 10 android apps, as although it has quite an offputting name, it really is quite good! It's a bit like angry birds, but not so much so that you might as well just get angry birds instead. For a start, there are no birds or pigs, and you don't fly - however, there are angels and devils, and you do roll. Anyway, this is a fun game that's growing in popularity. This application isn't available on the HTC Wildfire

Download HeavenHell

Wikipedia App - Top 10 Free Android Apps
Wikipedia App - Top 10 Free Android Apps

4: Wikipedia

Application

This is a new application but, unsurprisingly, is rapidly growing in popularity. I mean, Wikipedia in an easy to use app form has got to be a good thing, right?

Copter Classic App - Top 10 Undiscovered Free Android Apps
Copter Classic App - Top 10 Undiscovered Free Android Apps

5: Copter Classic

Game

If you've ever played the aptly named "Helicopter Game" on your computer, then you'd probably understand why this is on here. This game is one of the most addicting games I've ever come across, and now you can play it on your Android phone!

Download Copter Classic

Dragon, Fly! App
Dragon, Fly! App

6: Dragon, Fly!

Game

"Dragon, Fly! " isn't exactly undiscovered, but it's not half as popular as it should be! Many people have not previously discovered this game, and they're missing out - its' addictive! This would be right at the top of my top 10 android apps if it wasn't already quite popular.

Download Dragon, Fly!

Cut and Slice App
Cut and Slice App

7: Cut and Slice

Game

"Cut and Slice" is an interesting game, aimed to exercise your brain. The idea behind the game is to use your finger to cut a shape into equal parts - it may not sound that interesting, but once again, it's an addicting game on Android!

Download Cut and Slice

Get2Me App
Get2Me App

8: Get2Me

Application

This applications a little different from the others on here, but I think it's quite neat. Get2Me allows you to send your location to someone, without using up your data plan, so that they can find you. As well as being very useful this application could be a potential lifesaver!

Download Get2Me

Voltage App
Voltage App

9: Voltage

Game

This game is a self confessed tetris knock off, but much more difficult! If you like brain teasers, and hate games that are too easy, this game is for you. Unfortunately, this isn't compatible with the HTC Wildfire.

Make me Bald App
Make me Bald App

10: Make me Bald

Application

You're either going to love this, or you're going to hate it. I love it! This app is simple and fun, giving you and your friends something to laugh about if nothing else. I think it's great.

Download Make me Bald

Conclusion

To Conclude...

There are hundreds of great Android apps that go completely undiscovered, and the truth is, it's not that easy to find them. Creating a top 10 undiscovered Android apps list has therefore been quite difficult. Hopefully, though, this article will have allowed you to add a few apps you'd never heard of before to your Android phone. If you think something shouldn't have been added, or I've missed something - leave a comment below. Enjoy your apps!

      @CodeBotics: I get your rational for Evernote, but I'm always surprised by how few people I know actually know about it, and it's changed my life is too, so I think you should include it and add a few more useful ones and change the title to reflect that. I'm a newbie on Squidoo and learned that can help you and your lens rank in several ways!

      Google Chrome is for sure going to be a power house for android browsers in the incoming months. 1 thing I don't know is why don't google just replace the default browsers by their chrome... I am going to try for "dragon, fly", a very cute game from the screen shots

      @anonymous: I hadn't realised before how many games there are in this list, thanks for the feedback. I might add a few other's at some point which aren't games. As for Evernote, it's has over 10 million installs so I'd say it's been discovered by many, so I couldn't include it in this list. OneNote is similar and is new to the Android scene so seemed a better candidate.

      anonymous 5 years ago

      Should have put less games in the list, I doubt the BEST free apps include games...and over half of these are games. What about Evernote?? It has totally transformed my day to day routines, and it's not even mentioned!

      @BenJacklin LM: As far as I can tell with a bit of quick research, they all are (in some form or other) except "Chrome", "Dragon, Fly!" and "make me bald".

      Thanks for the feedback! :)

      Really well written and in depth lens. I can't believe I didn't know about the copter game! However I couldn't find chrome beta in the store... maybe because I'm in Canada. Cheers
