Andorid Application Approval

This is a post about the apps I use on my android phone. I use most of these apps regularly for tasks like downloading and discovering music, browsing and discovering the web, regulating and enhancing my daily life and finally addressing my responsibilities and finances.

For your information I use Samsung Galaxy S4 with the custom ROM Hyperdrive

I plan on doing post later on Custom ROMs and how they can improve the performance and utility of your phone.

Many of these apps require root access to function or be fully functional. And a couple require the Xposed Framework

Below is a series of links to either the apps Google Play Store location or a Google search of its' name if it is not available on the Play Store and a brief description.

  • 14px - simple challenging and addicting platform game where you work through increasingly difficult levels.
  • 920 Text Editor - a great text editor that even has color coded support for many programming languages. Installed from f-droid.

  • Ex-Themer[ICS/JB] - an application for tweaking the appearance of your ICS/JB ROM
  • F-Droid - a fantastic third party application store that hosts mainly open source and free to use apps. Many of the apps on this list are downloaded from this store
  • Firefox - the best mobile browser that includes most of the feature the regular browser has
  • Flow - arguably the best Reddit reader application. Reddit is a social aggregation user submitted links and thoughts.
  • Flud - the far and away best torrent downloading application I have found. Interactions with the developer have been great too.
  • Google Play Newsstand - a good news source
  • Greenify - prolong your battery life with this app that hibernates other apps running in the background. Requires root and Xposed.

  • InfiniTracks - a great 8tracks app
  • List My Apps - an application that lists all the apps installed on your phone in creating a list. Was used in the creation of this very list.
  • Lucky Patcher - is a great Android tool to bypass premium applications license verification, remove ads, modify Permissions, and more.
  • MediaConverter - allows conversion of multimedia from one format to another. Supports nearly every media format but requires ffmpeg Codec listed later for conversion.
  • Mint - a fantastic online banking and financial management app that creates automatic budgets on past spending and has a very intuitive interface.
  • My Cloud Player - my preferred Soundcloud player. If you don't know what Soundcloud is I suggested you lose the next several hours roaming the fantastic music there. I prefer it over the Soundcloud produced default due to a fantastic interface and playlist ability.
  • My Verizon Mobile - only Verizon bloatware I kept to keep track of mobile data usage as Verizon sees it atleast.
  • PeerBlock for Android - a tool used to stop known trackers and companies with financial interest in Hollywood from tracking your dubious torrent activities

  • Performance Control - an application I use to underclock and overclock my CPU as well as set profiles based on activity to maximize performance and battery life.
  • Pirate Bay Browser - an app to browse thepiratebay torrents

  • Torrent Movies - download from a list of YIFY torrents
  • Viral - this a media player but what makes it great is it is a windowed media player meaning it just open on top of the app you opened the media link from. Very helpful for ease of use though screen sizing can be difficult.
