Best Apps for Android


We've written a lot in the past about apps for productivity, but with a heavy focus on the iPhone operating system. Having just made the switch from an iPhone to Android device, I'm still in the process of exploring new features, usability, and differences in apps between the two operating systems. Here's a short list of the apps I'm impressed with, to be used personally and for business, all designed to increase productivity and efficiency!

Email: powerful search filter, customized interface, and prioritization — just a few of the great features of these apps.
