Updated on September 16, 2014

Hey there buddies, wassup?

You just bought your new smartphone. You have possibly even rooted it for flashing a custom ROM or just to increase your new guy's battery. If you are searching for the best apps for your phone, then you have come to the right place. Find the best apps for your smartphone below and realize your mobile's potential.

1. Greenify

Greenify is the first app in my list because it easily and effectively increases the battery life of your smartphone. It is a very simple app, and its basic function is to hibernate your background apps. You also have the option to selectively hibernate your apps, so that you can choose for apps like Facebook and WhatsApp to run as usual.

Unless you hibernate them, background apps will drain your precious battery even when they are not in use! Hence, this app is very popular among many users. Give it a try.

2. Titanium Backup

Titanium Backup allows you to automatically and selectively backup your apps.

Titanium Backup is the app for those of you who do a lot of flashing in your smartphones. This is the best app to back up your data and ROM. It provides its users with multiple options to back up like backing up specific data and apps. Not only that, but you can also automatically schedule your backups, freeze your apps, and convert them into user apps, and much more. This is a great app and I suggest you try it out.

3. ROM Manager

ROM Manager will keep you updated on all of the popular ROMs available for your device.

The pro version of this app is worth a try.


4. Trickster Mod

Trickster Mod is an awesome app. Although there are many apps out there which can do the same tasks, Trickster Mod's support and interface beats them all. With this app, you can overclock your phone to make it fly like a butterfly, undervolt it to increase your battery life, and a lot more. All in all, this app is a must in your rooted smartphone.

5. RAM Booster

Ever feel that your phone is sluggish when playing games? Or does your phone restart during heavy usage? Then this is the perfect app for you. RAM Booster digs into your phone's RAM and clears out unnecessary usage by background apps, which provides more RAM for the apps that you are using. This app is a must for those who need more snappiness in their phones.

6. Root Firewall Pro

Root Firewall Pro can help you save bandwidth.

Have you been low on your data bandwidth? This app can help you out. With it, you can disable Internet for apps you aren't using while selectively enable it for those you are. It even has the options to selectively enable 2g, 3g, 4g, or Wi-Fi networks for apps of your choosing. It also has features like ad blocking and much more.

7. GL to SD

Internal memory getting low? Cannot install huge games due to insufficient space? Then this app is your lifesaver. GL to SD is a great app for those who want to store and play huge games. It transfers the data to your SD card (micro sd) from your internal storage, which provides space for new games.

8. SoftKeyZ

Bored of the normal look of your navigation buttons? Want to add some colours to your screen? Go try this app. It can personalize your navigation buttons (soft keys) into many different styles. It has 150+ themes to choose from. This is an awesome app for those who want your smartphone to appear just so.

9. DiskDigger Pro

Deleted your photos or documents accidentally? Want to recover lost data? This app can do that for you. It can even recover formatted data. Personally, I believe that this app is one of the best to use for a rooted Android device. It's a pure lifesaver.

10. Solid Explorer

Solid Explorer provides you with two panels, making it very easy to copy and paste files from one location to another.
Solid Explorer provides you with two panels, making it very easy to copy and paste files from one location to another.

This is the best file manager out there. The basic idea of this explorer is just awesome: the app provides you with two panels when positioned in the landscape view. This means that you can simply copy-paste or move any file from one panel to the other without the fuzz of remembering the path of the locations separately. It also has additional features like FTP connection, etc. This is a must-have app for all Android users.

NOTE: You also need to install Solid Explorer Unlocker to use the complete features.

At the moment it has some glitches working in Android KitKat.

That was the list of the top 10 apps (in my opinion) that I have used. I can personally attest that each of them works very well. I've provided links to each of these apps at the end of the article.

      Thanks for Simple and very useful app! Some apps allow you to automatically backup all of your apps and all of their data, completely block advertisements, create secure tunnels to the Internet, overclock your processor, or make your device a wireless hotspot. These apps are really worth using.
