Software that makes Android Rock


Whether you use an Android phone or a tablet the key to maximising use and benefits  of the device is having the right software.

The Google Play store makes it easy to discover and download applications and many of them are free .

Below is a list of the must have Android apps which are currently on my Samsung tablet , they allow me to stay in touch and to work wherever I am. I may well have  missed your favourite apps and would love to hear about them.

If you are getting started with Android , I hope that you will find some of the apps listed of interest . I

The list is editable , so if you have apps on your Android that you find extremely useful , could you add them to the list please .

We can then share the best of the best .

PS In fact the only thing I cannot do on my Android  is code Delphi applications.
