Have you ever thought of installing many useful apps on your Android smartphone just to keep them handy whenever you need them, such as a torchlight app for use when in the dark, or a compass app to find directions, and many more?

Thanks to this free and excellent Swiss Army Knife app. As the title of this app implies, it keeps many handy tools in one place. It’s lightweight and it works pretty efficiently with a simplistic design.

You just need to install once and your mobile device is equipped with all 10 useful tools below, each of them is ready for use with a tap away.

  • Flashlight - turns your device into a flashlight with a simple on/off button.

great stuff a great handy little app, I had this on my phone and when my dear dad saw the 1st thing he said ' I want that ', also swiss army knifes are pretty illegal in the Uk these days so this is the next best thing :)
For more tools, I prefer Tool Box (Free): https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=maxcom.toolbox.free Strangely, the best free alternative I can find on iOS is this: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/army-knife-basic-3-in-1/id304387290
