Most Popular Free Android Apps

This list of the most popular free Android apps run the whole gamut, showing the range and the power of free Android apps in general. These apps can really turn your Android phone into a stronger and more helpful device. Surely, you wouldn’t want to miss that opportunity? Here are ten of the most popular free Android apps available:

Compass

In a way, it would be very surprising if a run-of-the-mill compass app was on this list. Well, it’s not and this Android app is far more than a mere tool to tell you which way is north. To name a few of the features this app brings to the table will be enough to sell most on the idea that it’s a practical, handy app to have on their Android phone. Essentially this is a half compass, half GPS Android app. It tells you the direction, but it also tells you the speed at which you’re traveling, the exact coordinates of your location and more things that can be used for fun or to potentially save your life if you’re trapped somewhere.

Handcent SMS

Do you want to send SMS and MMS messages through your Android phone? Don’t get what I’m asking? More simply: do you text? If you do, you need to get Handcent SMS for Android. Basically, it takes your phone to entirely new level and texting dimension. Trust me, when you’ve used this app for a while, you’ll wonder how you lived without it for so long!

Facebook

I really shouldn’t have to say a single word about this app. I do feel it’s necessary to say that it’s the *Official Facebook App for Android*. Enough said!

Ringdroid

Perhaps one of the most hands-on free Android apps, Ringdroid allows you to edit various audio files so you can create your own ringtones and alarms. Tired of editing songs to create your own ringtone? Well, they’ve thought of that too! You can create ringtones for your Android phone from scratch as well (using the Ringdroid app on your phone).

Places Directory

This Android app does exactly what it sounds like. It allows you to find the nearest gas station, shopping mall, shoe store, movie theater, or even a great place for a burger. It is simple to use yet very efficient and effective: a must-have Android application.
