Recommended apps for android

My last post about apps covered iPhone and iOS,

and I can claim some working (and acquired) knowledge about these apples.

 

But android is a mystery to me, as I’ve never owned one of these phones,

and no-one I know does for me to have a play with and learn.

 

So when @MrPennski tweeted that he has a little list,

I offered to put it here for our future reference.

 

If I have personal experience with the app (on iOS), I’ve rated it on a scale:-

P=know

PP = use

PPP = love

 

Over to @MrPennski:-

BTW if you knew the Aussie definition of the word “root”,

you might stop wanting to root your phone.
