The Best Android Apps (July 2018)

The 100 best Android apps turn your phone into a jack-of-all-trades

We’ve once again overhauled our picks for the best Android apps, whittling our robust selection down to a paltry 100. Some are new, and others have been standbys on this list for years. Regardless, we’re certain that any and all of these apps will make your life easier, and help you get the most out of your Android device. The apps are listed by categories like Music, Travel, and so on. Just try to keep in mind that, like the best venue in town, space is limited. After all, 32GB will only get you so far …

In case you’re on iOS, check out our list of the best iOS apps, and if you’re more into gaming you can take a look at our list of the 25 best Android games.


Google Podcasts
As the name suggests, Google Podcasts is Google’s new podcast app and it’s a great way to enjoy all your favorite podcasts without having to stray from the Google ecosystem. The true advantages of that, however, show if you have a Google Home speaker or Google Assistant in other devices, as it will allow you to continue listening to your podcasts on any of those devices through simple voice commands.

Driving Detective
Do you have a bad habit of checking your phone when you’re behind the wheel? Driving Detective is a great way to put a stop to that. The app automatically detects when you’re in a moving car and puts your phone in Do Not Disturb, silencing notifications until you exit the vehicle.

You may be good at keeping track of your own activity, but what about your dog’s? Rundogo is built for dog owners who want to track both their activity and their dog’s activity when they’re out with their dogs. There are a range of activities to choose from, including a normal evening walk, bikejoring (cycling with your dog), and more.

Instagram is expanding, and its latest effort is IGTV, a way to watch long-form vertical — making it a little different than most phone-based video experiences. A number of creators have already started using IGTV to spread their content, and the selection of content is likely to continue to grow — plus, you can use it to upload content of your own, if you so choose.

Adobe Spark Post
Looking to create nicer photo edits for things like social media? Adobe Spark Post is a great way to create graphics for your social media profiles. All you have to do pick a photo, add some text, apply Design Filters, and you should be good to go. It’s really an easy-to-use app and it should help any social media user expand their posts.
