Apps for Android OS

Personal Experience 2010 to 2013

This list may not reflect the current status

At the time, these apps were recommended with the latest Android version. I can no longer adequately check their current quality and availability as I haven't owned an Android smartphone for a long time.
Please note current reviews in the Play Store!

Warning! Keylogger function in Android OS!
Up to Android version 7.1.2 there is a security hole known since 2016, which allows every Android developer to intercept and redirect keystrokes of the user unnoticed and even to obtain further permissions by fraud.
So old Android smartphones with this Android version must not be allowed on the internet anymore, that would be grossly negligent!
