Thanks for this great list!

aContacts hasn't been updated in over three years and its Play listing says "Not fully compatible with Android 2.0"

Best Android Navigation Apps

Add OsmAnd. By far the most powerful mapping App for Android.

Uses off-line OSM maps (no data download but online also available) and includes voice guidance, gpx track recording, contours, etc etc.

Is it time for its own category, viz. Offline Navigation (GPS) Apps, ?

For example, I would like to see a comparison between OsmAnd and Copilot Live V9

Just got my first smartphone which runs on Android. I've installed many of your suggested apps and they all seem to be high quality. Thanks for your work on this list.

Hello, JoJoyee...

The photos for Jetpack Joyride and Temple Run are reversed!

Thanx for a great piece of research! Keep it up.

Thanks pratomorone for pointing out. They are now fixed.

Great list Jojoyee!
I myself love to play games on my phone some now and then. I am a huge fan of racing games and I found GT Racing: Motor Academy Free+ to be one of the best free games around. It is a 400MB download, but if you have a WiFi connection it's worth downloading it.

Audiogalaxy no longer seems to be available on GooglePlay, and the website is also unavailable. This should probably be removed from the Best list. Does anyone know of an alternative?

Thanks for the feedback Luftmensch. It's now removed from the list as Audiogalaxy has been discontinued due to its acquisition by Dropbox. When available, a good alternative will be added to the list.
Update: added "Qloud Media Free" as an alternative to Audiogalaxy.

There's a game... I think it's called 3D Cats or 3D Flying Cats.... it's pretty addictive too but is a battery drainer. The cat meoows when you crash sometimes growls a bit, actumy feel bad for smashing his rocket into a wall.

Es file explorer is universally the best file manager in terms of simplicity and options. Have used it on both HTC and Samsung.

SuperSU is better than Superuser IMHO especially now with the new updates.

Google Drive is awesome for storage space and versatility as you can open and create virtually anything using docs without having to install office software. Kingston Office I think its called is an amazing free office manager of you want one.

Titanium Backup and My Backup are great apk and data tools. My SMS backup is handy too.

I use win amp for music player but Apollo is great as well.

Sorry, had to remove one of the games you mentioned, because it's not free. Please take care to suggest only free apps, as our site is about freeware. Thanks for the suggestions.

While loitering around Google Play I found this app called SURDOC. This is basically an online backup app. They are presently offering a ridiculous 100GB of storage for a year . So if anyone is looking for a temporary harddisk online you may want to give it a try. Though the survival of the service remains to be seen...

Note :
1. The 100 GB is available via the app store only.
2. Last date to get that much space seems to be 15-01-2013.
3. Only Almighty knows the catch behind?

Agreed. A business model like this is unsustainable. They will either go bust like so many others before them or become no more competitive than the already established services. IMO I would not trust this as my only solution at this time. MC - Site Manager.
It is even worse (or better). They are giving away unlimited storage for a year with the option to purchase 3 years of unlimited storage for $19.99@year. http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/surdoc-giving-away-free-unlimite... I would not trust a 1 year old company with a deal that sweet. Too many of these storage sites have gone away. Though I have had 2 free 50GB ADrive accounts for over 5 years.

I Have just upgraded from a HTC Wildfire S to a Samsung GS3. A couple of great Apps I would like to suggest are as follows:

Music Player and Organizer - JetAudio Basic
File Manager - FX

Im extreemely impressed with these two apps so far!

Yours,
Beev
