1. WhatsApp

WhatsApp, the legendary chat app, has been installed on over one billion smartphones. And it's always improving user experience, adding new features and becoming more secure. What makes it number one? Everyone uses it, simple as that. If you don’t use WhatsApp already, you should definitely start.

5. Morecast

There are plenty of weather apps available that are more accurate and better looking than the ones that come pre-installed on your Android device.  MORECAST is favorite weather app to many users because it has one of the best-looking interfaces, with a clear and sensible layout. It's also one of the most advanced apps of its kind, featuring such options as side-by-side weather comparisons for two cities, and accurate weather information for a particular route. MORECAST is the right way to make a smartphone weather app, and best of all, it's free. 

6. Hulu

Hulu is an excellent app for watching movies and TV shows on Android. It's a free service that relies on ads, but there are some great shows available. You need to pay a subscription fee to access all of the content, but there is a range of excellent shows available without subscription, including classic US comedies such as Family Guy, The Simpsons and South Park.  It's currently restricted to the US, but hopefully it will be appearing in more territories soon.   

7. PhotoDirector

PhotoDirector is the whole package. It has everything you could possibly need to edit your photos. The tools range from simple text bubbles and filters, to more complex things such as HSL and curves, and they're all heavily adjustable, helping you get the best out of your photos. It's for messing around on and seeing what you end up with.
