Usually Android users depend on Google Play for most of the applications they use. However, what we do not realize is that the limit Android can be extended way beyond Google Play Store and other Google services. There are a lot of amazing APKs that Google has not made available and you need to go through the below list to know which ones are the apps you need to try out even if they are not available for you in the Play Store.
Best for Gaming: Humble Bundle
If you are into gaming, you must have already heard about the super awesome Humble Bundle. However the app recently got updated which means you can no longer access it in the Play Store. Now the exact reason for it is unknown but we can speculate that the app might seem like a competitor to Google given that it lets you pay whatever you wish to download groups (called Bundles, hence the name Humble Bundle) of high-end games for your Android as well as PC.
What is interesting is the fact that the money paid by you is actually divided between charities, developers and the website itself. It is easy for a user to manage the Humble Bundle games library on your Android device. Also, the app will send you updates whenever the next Humble Bundle is available, which means you are never left out.
Best App to Stream Online Content: VideoMix
This app tops the chart for streaming movies and tv shows online. The only thing concerning you should be your country’s streaming copyrighted content laws, as we are sure you do not want to get into unnecessary trouble.
However, once you know which movie of show you want to watch, tap it, select a site to stream it from and choose which video player app you want to use to play it. You can also integrate IMDB in this app itself which will make you able to view cast and find torrents. Happy Binging!
Want app for Youtube Ripping: Videoder
Try Videoder. This is easily the most functional YouTube ripping app available to users. Once you search the videos you want, you will also be shown a list of formats in which you can download the video, including 1080p and MP3. Set a download directory and you are good to go.
Best for Modders: CyanogenMod Installer
This app was entertained by the Play Store just for a mere two weeks, after that it was shown the way out. However the app has neither lost popularity nor functionality. The reason for the app being taken off from Playstore was that it didn’t follow the Google guidelines for developers and it also encouraged users to abuse their warranty. The truth is it guides users to activate an ADB, i.e. a debugging tool which helps users to install the CyanogenMod ROM. The app also allows a program to transfer data to Android.
Best Launcher For Various Functions: LMT Launcher
This is another interesting APK which doesn’t require root. This app also has a menu which when detached appears in a fan shape and gives us various shortcuts.
You just have to swipe from any edge of screen towards to centre of the Android to open the menu of this app. It also allows you to add your options and also allows you to customize them.
Looking To Download: Transdroid
Torrent lovers will always love this app. You can manage your torrents remotely with this app. The app allows to have home servers and seedboxes allowing you to download any kind of torrents . You can add torrents, start and stop torrents . The app supports all big torrent sites like uTorrent, Deluge and Vuze. However, you can also download a diluted version of the app from Play Store called Transdrone, but the full potential of the app including integrated torrent search and RSS feeds can only be explored using Transdroid APK. Though we would once again give you a heads up about the laws around torrenting in your country. Happy Downloads!
