It's been over ten years since Android was first released by Google, and at that time it was hard to imagine how many apps we would have today.
There are apps for everything, and many of them are completely free, so you'll only need a few downloads to charge your smartphone at no extra cost.
Granted, the large amount of apps does not mean that they are all of high quality – far from it, and it can be difficult to find the good apps.
There are tools and techniques to help you do that. Various lists in the Play Store provide you with Editor's Picks in a number of categories, new releases, and even apps that have been specifically recommended for you based on your previous installations.
You can also find apps that resemble your favorite by looking for an app you have and see what else is going on.
By retrieving user ratings and ratings, you can avoid downloading a dud from an app.
But despite all this, the sheer number of apps on Google Play can cause many of the best to get lost, while the weaker ones can sometimes be at the top.
To make sure you never install a Duff app, here are a selection of the best you should install right now – each one carefully selected to make sure you have a whole bunch of fun, engaging and damn useful apps on your computer Have a phone or tablet.
We've divided them into categories to help you find what you're looking for. But check out our free Android apps of the week, which you can find below, every week.

Notes can be edited at any time or moved between boards, creating a colorful to-do list and note-taking app.
Post-it may be a bit more cumbersome than many note-taking apps, but if you're a fan of real-world post-its, this is definitely worth a look, either as a substitute or as a complement to it.
If you ever run out of data before your monthly quota has been updated, then Google Go could be for you. This free Android app is a lightweight alternative to Chrome and other browsers. And when we talk about light weight, we're serious: The app is only 7 MB in size and requires up to 40% less data than searching in other browsers.
It's also designed to work fast even on slow connections. This can be useful if you are in an area with low network coverage or traveling abroad, where speed may not be as high as at home.
And although it is lightweight, it lacks any features. You can search for GIFs, search for your voice, and even get information from Google Lens by taking a picture of something. For example, take a photo of text and have it speak or translate aloud.
