Must Have Android Apps in 2018 – Top Picks

The Google Play Store has millions of apps and games that users can download for free. There are plenty of apps to choose from but there are some that are a good addition for every Android phone. Some of these apps may already be on your phone but there are a few that some don’t know much about or simply haven’t heard of them. Here are some of the apps to have in your Android phone in 2017:

Prisma Beta

Prisma released a beta version of its app last year and it has quickly become a popular one for those who like to make their pictures look cool. The app is simple, all users have to do is take a picture and they will have plenty of filters to choose from. The filters aren’t like any others found on social media, they completely change a picture, giving us a cool picture to show our family or friends. The app also allows users to share the image on social media, so they don’t have to go through all the process of saving the picture and getting on, for example Instagram, to post the image. The app is still in its beta version but it has already caught the attention of many Android users for its cool filters.


Authy is one of the best apps when it comes to securing your accounts. The two-factor authentication app is easy to use. When login in on the accounts that allow two-factor authentication, users will be asked for a number that is revealed on the phone. The app will give you twenty seconds to enter the numbers or will continue to reveal different ones until you login. This app is a must have for those who want to keep their most important accounts on their phone secure.


Snapseed is a photo editing application from a subsidiary of Google that is a very good option for those who like to add effects and edit their pictures. The app is easy to use and users are given a number of options, including one for perspective, which makes the picture look like it was taken from a different angle. The perspective option also fills in the space left when you move the angle of the picture, making it look as real as possible. The app is not new but it is a good one for those who like to edit and make their pictures stand out.


Taking pictures with a phone on old pictures you have on your albums is something that many of us do. But the pictures don’t always look good, especially when you use flash. There are a few apps out there that do help you scan the picture, including Photoscan. The app from Google Photos lets you scan your old pictures and it does a good job, making the images seem like they were scanned and then sent to your phone. The app isn’t complicated, all users have to do is focus the circle in the middle of the camera in the app. After focusing on the four white dots that appear on the picture you want to scan, the app takes a few seconds to complete the scan. When the process is complete, users can go back and save all of the images they have scanned.

There are a few other options that have similar features to these apps but the four above are very popular and considered a must have by many Android users around the world.
