Android is a beautifully designed operating system. The stock version of Android comes with some default apps to perform tasks. Many mobile manufacturers are releasing the customized version of Android with their favorite apps.
However, many of these stock apps are unused by the users due to their mediocre performance. There are plenty of good apps available in the Google Play store to replace the native apps provided by Android. In this article, I have handpicked some best of the best Android apps which can replace the default apps.
1. Messages -> SMS Organizer
We all know Messages is a default app for checking SMS on Android. The app is good but when compared other messaging apps it lacks productivity. SMS Organizer is one such app which improves your messaging style and habit a lot.
SMS Organizer is developed by Microsoft and packed with many great features. Its main aim is to declutter unwanted features and provide a great user experience. The best feature of the app is reminders when you receive any payment related SMS from the bank or any finance office. The app automatically sends notifications to remind about the payment dues according to the last date given in the message.
Another great feature is the message categorization. The tabs are given to access the related SMS on a particular tab. For example, it has tabs organized for personal, transactional, promotional, and starred. Also, you won’t get notifications when you receive a promotional message.
2. Phone -> TrueCaller
TrueCaller is a fantastic app to replace the traditional dialer app. The app became quite popular with its user name notification even if the caller is not in your phone address book. The app intimates you about spammy calls by showing the notification in red color which you can simply avoid. Also, you can block the spam calls with built-in block protection feature.
Another interesting feature is the number search. The app lets you search for the name of the number with a simple search. Truecaller collects the numbers and names by crowdsourcing the user profiles. It is simply a phone number database works flawlessly in your hand.
3. Google Chrome -> Brave Browser
Chrome is a default browsing app for Android smartphones. However, Chrome has its own flaws when it comes to privacy and security. Over these concerns, we recommend Brave browser for our audience.
Brave browser is built on the Chromium code and its look is very similar to the Google Chrome. It has an impressive set of privacy and security features to provide the best browsing experience to the user. It has built-in adblocker, shields to block cookies and trackers.
4. Google Music -> Mediamonkey
Have you ever felt the music organization is a bit tedious task? If your answer is yes then we have the best suggestion. Mediamonkey is a robust media player with music file organizing feature.
After the installation, the app finds all the available media files on your device and organize in one place. If your music collection is a mess, this app search for the album artwork, lyrics, and tags them automatically. Mediamonkey is available in both the free and paid versions.
5. Files -> Files by Google
We have seen the customized version of Android comes with Files app which mostly mediocre in performance.
These apps come with basic functionality like checking, moving and deleting files. Google launched a fantastic File browsing app called “Files by Google”. This app comes default in stock Android enabled phones.
Files by Google is an advanced file management app which aims for the space-saving feature to the user. The app is nicely designed and the user can reclaim the free space by checking unwanted files and unused apps data and more.
