Must Have Apps:
Trusted Contacts – Setup custom contacts who can find the location of your mobile phone in the case of an emergency.
Android Pay – Aside from the ease of tapping your phone on credit card machines to pay, it also stores all/any of your loyalty cards (i.e. store discount cards, gift cards, AAA card, etc.)
Google Calendar – Must have to sync all your calendaring between mobile devices and computers, plus reminders and date info.
Google Duo – Cross-platform audio and video conferencing. (Meaning, Android and iPhones can video chat!)
Google Photos – Unlimited cloud photo storage! Plus, great features, including AI search, simple photo editing, and albums!
Cool / Interesting Apps:
Science Journal – An interesting app that exposes many of the hardware devices built into your mobile device, like the magnetometer, compass, sound meter, and accelerometer.
Chrome Remote Desktop – If you use Chrome on your home computer, the Chrome Remote Desktop app will give you access to your computer from anywhere that you have mobile data access. It’s great for those little tech emergencies.
Google Play Music – If you have a music collection on your computer… you can now store it in the Google cloud, and Google Play Music gives you access to your entire collection on your mobile (or any internet connected computer!)
PhotoScan by Google Photos – Simple app to quickly and easily scan greeting cards, and other photos and make them digital.
Google Now Launcher – I like Google’s launcher because there are some nice built-in features that integrate with Google pretty well.
Google Opinion Rewards – “Free” money for taking very short (3-5 simple question) surveys. Money for use in the Google App Store for music, movies, apps, and more.
