Here’s a list of must-have applications for your Android device.  While there are a lot of other apps you may enjoy, you might consider this list as mandatory installs.

  • Dropbox – take your files with you everywhere
  • Evernote – go paperless and get super organized
  • Netflix – entertainment
  • Pandora – find new music and listen to your favorite tunes
  • Amazon Kindle – buy your books on Amazon and read them on any device or OS.  Not all companies offer you so much flexibility.
  • Skype – keep connected with your friends and family with free video calls
  • KeyPassDroid – keep track of all your other accounts.  You need Dropbox for this, too
  • Lookout – secure your device and make it ready to find in case you lose it
