10 best voice recorder apps for Android


One of the most handy features of any Android device is the ability to record yourself. There are plenty of reasons for wanting to do so as well. Musicians may want to record a new idea, journalists need to record interviews, and some even set it up to see if they talk in their sleep. The good news is that you don’t have to go and buy a voice recorder from someplace like Amazon or Walmart anymore. Your smartphone is perfectly capable of handling it for you! Here are the best voice recorder apps for Android!

[Price: Free]
Audio Recorder is one of the more simple and easy to use voice recorder apps. Don’t let its ease of use fool you, though. It’s a pretty fun little recorder. Its big draw is that it supports a couple of actual microphones that are capable of recording some pretty decent audio. Aside from the hardware support, it has the basics. You can record stuff, save it, upload it to various platforms (including cloud storage), and more. It’s free to download and use if you’re interested.

Most Android devices come with an app that already does voice recording for you.

10 best backgrounds and wallpaper apps for Android


Finding great wallpapers and backgrounds for your Android device isn’t all that difficult. There are a ton of apps out there that can do the task.

10 best backgrounds and wallpaper apps for AndroidBackdrops

[Price: Free with in-app purchases]
Backdrops is an above average option if you’re looking for good wallpapers. It features a variety of styles along with some modern features. For instance, you’ll be able to sign in with your Google account to sync wallpapers across devices. It’s a good start for collecting some good wallpapers. The only caveat is that there is a pro version that comes with exclusive wallpapers, and then additional paid content on top of that for more wallpaper packs. It’s not inherently bad, but it can be frustrating if you don’t know it’s coming. It’s one of the better wallpaper apps and it’s worth a shot.

10 best backgrounds and wallpaper apps for AndroidBackgrounds HD

[Price: Free]
Backgrounds HD has been around for a long time and is one of the most popular wallpaper apps on this list. It’s considered good because it has a metric ton of wallpapers to choose from. Updates in 2015 and 2016 have modernized the design and 30 categories helps keep their massive collection in line. There are a variety of resolutions supported so you may have to wade through some lower quality images to find the really high quality stuff.

10 best backgrounds and wallpaper apps for AndroidCool Wallpapers HD

[Price: Free]
Cool Wallpapers HD is another one of the most popular wallpaper apps available on mobile. It boasts a staggering collection of 200,000 images that you can choose from. These are laid out in a variety of categories for easy surfing. You can also search for specific wallpapers by using tags or even searching by color.

Tapet is a (relatively) newer offering that’s quickly gaining popularity. This app doesn’t offer backgrounds like most wallpaper apps. Instead, this one will generate a wallpaper for you. Once you open the app, you’ll be able to choose from a variety of patterns and colors. The app will then create a wallpaper just for you. It also creates wallpapers based on your device’s screen resolution. That means it’ll be crisp which is what you’re looking for. There’s a free trial to check it out before it asks you to pay anything.

10 best backgrounds and wallpaper apps for AndroidTrue HD 4K Wallpapers

[Price: Free]
The name of this app is pretty lame, but thankfully it makes up for it by having a good selection of wallpapers. What makes this app special is that it will only show you wallpapers based on your screen resolution. Therefore, those with 1080p displays won’t see 540×960 images. If you’re rocking a 2K screen or greater, you won’t be bothered by lower resolution stuff. One of the more difficult things to do is find good 2K and 4K wallpapers since a lot of wallpaper apps don’t have that many yet. This gets the bric-a-brac out of the way so you can find those crispy wallpapers. It’s one of the best free wallpaper apps out there.

Wallpapers by Google is probably the most simple of all the wallpaper apps on this list. It shows a smaller selection of wallpapers, but they are all high resolution. You can access additional wallpapers using Google+, Google Earth, and other sources that Google calls “partners”. You also get additional features if your device is running Android 7.0 Nougat or higher. It’s not the most robust option on the list, but it is completely free and taps into some pretty good sources for wallpapers.

[Price: Free with in-app purchases]
Wonderwall is one of the lesser-known wallpaper apps on Android. It doesn’t boast massive collections like Backgrounds HD or Cool Wallpapers, but the collection it does boast is hand picked by the developers. They’re mostly things like photography and abstract creations. All of the images are high resolution and should fit well on most screens. Some additional features include the ability to auto-set wallpapers on your device, submit your own photography to be featured in the app, and some other stuff. It’s also free to use with no advertising which is nice.

10 best backgrounds and wallpaper apps for AndroidZedge

[Price: Free]
Last on our list is the venerable Zedge. Zedge is probably the most popular app that offers ringtones, notification tones, alarm tones, and wallpapers. It has quite a large selection of all of those and we always manage to find some obscure stuff stashed in there somewhere. Wallpapers can be searched, sorted by category, and Zedge always has some that are picked out as featured when you open the app. The app isn’t perfect and features some of the more outrageous advertising we’ve seen. Their selections do include HD wallpapers and better, but there isn’t really a way to search to get rid of the lower resolution images. It’s a bit like the wild west, but it’s a good app for those looking around.

Get it now on Google Play!


10 best backgrounds and wallpaper apps for AndroidBonus: Google Search

[Price: Free]
Of course, if none of these apps work for you, then you can always turn to the venerable Google Search. There is a whole section for images there and you can search for backgrounds, wallpapers, and even add in variables to find the types that you want. Let’s face it, Google’s image search has more images than pretty much all of these apps combined which makes it a great option. The only issue is that downloading images can be a pain sometimes and you’ll have to set them manually each time. The best reason to use a Google Search is because you can search for resolutions (2K, 4K, 1920×1080, vertical wallpapers, horizontal wallpapers, etc) which helps filter out a lot of the nonsense that you might not want. It’s a good fallback plan if none of these apps have what you’re looking for!

10 best icon packs for Android (by developer)


Icon packs have always been popular. Most mainstream, third party launchers support them and they provide a cheap and unique way to customize your device. When we first thought about doing this list, we thought about doing individual icon packs. Unfortunately (or perhaps, fortunately), there are hundreds of amazing icon pack apps out there so instead, we decided to showcase the best icon pack developers. Each of them have multiple packs to choose from. Enjoy!


10 best icon packs for Android (by developer)Benas Dzimidas

[Price: Free / $1.39]
Benas Dzimidas is an icon pack developer with a lot of talent. The icon packs Benas is most known for include the Rondo icon pack, the Lai icon pack, and the Toca UI icon pack. Rondo is flat, round, and Material inspired and Toca UI is similar except they are rounded squares instead of round. Both are excellent options. The Lai pack are rectangular with muted colors and have over 2200 icons included. The icon packs also include wallpapers and some of them have Muzei support as well. It’s a good option if you want icon packs with simple designs.

[Price: Varies]
Next up is an icon dev named GSeth. Included in GSeth’s repertoire are some fun packs like Circlons, Vion, Vibion, Ruggy, Ruggon, and Viby. The icons themselves are insanely highly rated and most present with a more sophisticated and minimal look than many others although you can find some fun designs among the various packs. GSeth does do some interesting ones though, like Rugo which is a crumpled paper and dirt style which looks awesome. To see GSeth’s collective work, click the Google Play button below.

10 best icon packs for Android (by developer)Hooolm

[Price: Varies]
Hooolm is an icon pack developer recommended to us by our readers and it turns out that Hooolm is a pretty good icon pack dev. Hooolm seems to enjoy doing glass-style icons and that’s most pronounced with the Smoke and Glass, Spatial Glass, and Tinted Glass icon packs. Unlike many, Hoolm doesn’t shy away from doing 3D icons, but still manages to keep them classy and sophisticated. They’re definitely worth a look.

10 best icon packs for Android (by developer)Kovdev

[Price: Varies]
Kovdev is a unique developer. S/he doesn’t have too many icon packs but it seems like whatever Kovdev releases gets put in the headlines. As one of the few devs that have had an icon pack go viral, you can imagine what kind of quality you’re looking at. The big ones by Kovdev are Nox, Domo, Stark, and Lumos. Nox is sharp and modern while Lumos is softer and muted and Domo is a marriage of complexity and simplicity. Stark is a newer icon pack that features hard squares and vibrant colors. All of them have nearly 2000 icons and there are others by Kovdev if you want to check them out.

10 best icon packs for Android (by developer)Samer Zayer

[Price: Varies]
Samer Zayer features a little more out of the box thinking while still staying in popular designs. You can find highly rated glass, flat, neon, paper, and brushed metal icon packs that have all garnered a number of downloads and high reviews from users. Most of the icon packs have well over 1000 icons and we especially liked Samer’s Glass icon pack along with the Flatee icon pack. Many of the icons come in the form of theme packs so you’ll need a third party launcher like Apex or Nova but you usually need a launcher like that in order to use icon packs anyway!

10 best icon packs for Android (by developer)sikebo

[Price: Free / $0.99]
Another icon pack developer our fans told us about is sikebo. S/he has done a variety of awesome icon packs including Matertialistik, Retrorika, and fl3D. Materialistik is, as you probably expected, based on Material Design and has a ton of colorful icons. Retrorika still follows the Material Design theme, but uses muted colors and retro color combinations to give your home screens a vintage look. The fl3D icon pack is unique in that it’s a 3D icon pack which is rare these days, but it looks sharp. The prices vary but most of them are either free or $0.99.

[Price: Free / $1.00]
SixtyFour ThirtyTwo is an icon pack developer that tries to think outside of the box. Most developers have a flat, Material Design inspired icon pack and this dev really doesn’t. The best ones are Min, Minoir, and Redux. Min and Minoir are minimalist icons that keep things small and out of the way with the only difference being that Min is white while Minoir is black. Redux is in development (at the time of this writing), but is showing a lot of promise with muted colors and unique combinations. Most icon packs are either free or $1.00.

Stealthychief has a number of themes and icon packs out there for a variety of platforms including most launchers, GO Keyboard, and icon packs. Stealthychief generally goes with more obscure stuff like the Aloha icon pack which adds a bit of tropical flair to your icons. However, there is a selection of monotone icons in a couple of colors as well as more popular designs like metal, gold, wood, platinum, and others. Browsing through Stealthychief’s app list is a veritable crap shoot of styles and ideas and that’s what makes it so enjoyable.

When we first released this list back in 2014, the fact that we didn’t include Vertumus made a few people angry and we can see why. Vertumus has a ton of icon packs but the highlights include Umbra, Elun, Cryten, Vopor, and Rewun. Actually, pretty much everything Vertumus releases rocks a 4.7 rating on Google Play or higher so you can’t go wrong with anything. You’ll find pretty much whatever you’re looking for whether it’s colorful and vibrant, muted and flat, and even shapeless designed icons. It’s good work, check it out!

It broke many, many mobile gaming records, including most active users. In case you’ve been living under a rock, Pokemon Go is a game where you use your GPS to go hunt and capture Pokemon and battle Gyms. Even if you hate the idea of it, no one can deny how unique it was.

Adobe Photoshop Fix, Photoshop Sketch, and Comp CC

Photoshop Sketch is a drawing app with a few pro-level features. Finally, Comp CC allows you to create designs that can then be ported to other Adobe apps. They all work pretty well, although you may need a Creative Cloud subscription to utilize their full features.

It also comes with built-in ad block along with additional security and privacy features. It’s a solid browser overall and probably the best one that comes with built-in ad block.
