Here is a short list of utility apps that offers simple to the obscure functionality to your devices, which can help to turn your Android smartphone or tablet into a one of a kind utility device.
Perhaps the most essential of all utility apps that is simply a must is having a flash-light utility app on your mobile device irrespective of where you live. You will eventually be facing a situation where there are no lights available from brownouts to just simply walking on a dark alley; this utility option could come in handy. We recommend “Tiny Flashlight App”, but there are a numerous apps available on the Play Store you could try out.
Remote Mouse & Keyboard Utility
Control your desktop, laptop or Mac with your mobile devices. Utility apps with such functions are now available. Our personal favourite is Remote Mouse, but there are a lot of alternatives if you think it’s not for you.
Measuring and Conversion Utility
Measure anything from distance, height, width, through angle and slope, down to sound levels; this is achievable if you have the right utility app like Smart Tool that offers this functionality. This app also has a versatile unit and currency converter, making it a must have utility package.
File Manager Utility
Most mobile phone devices comes with a built-in File Manager, but they have a limited functionality and does not allow access to root directories, mainly because users can make a mistake and can cost users dearly. Definitely, root browser functionality is only advisable for the more advanced users. It allows users to control the mobile devices’ OS, which is, by default, not recommended.
Device Manager Utility
Easily allows for some pretty handy functionality, including (but not limited to): file transfer, texting, media management, and more.
