by Fahad Saleem

Literally hundreds of apps are launched on Android and iPhone every week, but hardly a few make it to our radar because, let’s face it, we no longer want to inundate our smartphones with apps which we won’t use. We are almost half way through 2017. There have been a slew of some amazing Android apps launched this year. In this article we will talk about the best Android apps of 2017. We will keep updating this article as we slouch towards the end of the year and as more and more new Android apps are launched.

The Best Android Apps 2017


Express VPN is definitely one of the best Android apps of 2017. Why does this app stand out among hundreds of VPN apps? ExpressVPN has reliable servers at the backend. It ensures the functioning of P2P services and torrents in your smartphone. ExpressVPN provides over 145 locations in 94 countries. You can switch locations and open all kinds of websites. After a 7 day free trial period, the app asks $7 a month to be used with full features.

Solid Explorer

I hate it when I am unable to find the specific music files or photos in my phone, all while knowing that they are in my phone somewhere. Solid Explorer is a great file spotter. But this app isn’t just a file manager. It also lets you lock and protect your data. You can even lock files and folders with fingerprint scanner and unlock them with your fingerprint.

SystemUI Tuner

This app is for Android geeks who want to have more control over their device’s UI and interface. And no, you don’t need to have a rooted device to use this app.

Norton App Lock

If you ask me which is the best Android app of 2017, I’d name Norton app lock in a jiffy. It’s one of the most useful apps out there. We all feel a little jittery while handing over our phones to strangers or acquaintances who take the liberty to open our galleries and messaging apps. With Norton app lock, you can lock any app with a few taps.

Microsoft To-Do

There is absolutely no shortage of to-do apps but when Microsoft makes something, anything, it is worth a look. Microsoft To-Do app has a sleek and clean interface. It’s a smart app with a card-based design. You can plan your day, set reminders and see your performance and goal achievement in graphs.
