In this smartphone era, the development of new mobile applications has joined the competition. There are number of new applications added regularly in the Play Store and App Store that replicate the others. Applications are built for entertainment and utility purposes and that’s what a good smartphone actually requires. Today, smartphone users look for the best tools that suit their needs and provide them maximum features.

Users generally seek for free apps and that’s what the Play Store offers. Android is the most preferredsmartphone OS that comes with diverse ranges, whether by features or by price. In this article I have listed the must have Android apps built for entertainment and utility purposes that you’d definitely like.


If you are simply looking for a ‘timepass’ app to chill out or recover your happy mood then Talking Tom is a good app for you. Tom can repeat whatever you say and you can treat him anyway you like. Earn points and buy stuff for Tom and he would be delighted. Another app is Photofunia that can change your images to a funny one. Add a humorous effect to your photos and laugh out loud.


Games are the most used applications by smartphone users and nowadays most of the gamers love playing on their Android phones. Popular Android games like Temple Run 2, Angry Birds, Cut the Rope and Fruit Ninja have become an addiction for game lovers, where Angry Birds come with multiple episodes and exciting levels.

IM and Messaging

To get involved socially with your friends and family the need for social networking apps is a must. Most of the youngsters today love Facebooking and tweeting, along with messaging their mates. The Facebook and Twitter apps for Android are a good way to spend more time with their friends. If that still doesn’t satisfy your instant messaging needs then IM apps like WhatsApp, WeChat and Line are better tools to send free sms and voice chats.

Music and Movies

Now coming to the music and media section, movies hold the no. 1 position in entertainment. Popular music and movie apps like Shazam andIMDB Movies & TV provide you with ultimate entertainment. Shazam is a music app where you can listen to, search, browse and stream your favorite music. You can also buy tracks from Amazon mp3, share music on social networking sites and get artist details with the app. If you are a movie freak then IMDb is a perfect app for you. It offers you all the latest movie reviews, trailers and movie show times in the local theatre near you.

Knowledge and Education

Not to forget, educational apps also carry a vital part in spending quality time. Apps likeDictionary, TED and Edmodo provide a great source of knowledge. Edmodo keeps teachers and students connected and share useful details on and off the classroom. TED provides audio and video of knowledgeable lectures from educated people related to business, technology, music and other relevant fields.

Applications are mainly built for utility purposes and if it can’t fulfill that commitment then it’s of no use. So choose an app that benefits you. I hope this list fits your requirement.
