This week we’re having a look at some apps that you may want to add to your smartphone.

Xender is one of the essential apps you should have on your device. It saves you from the hassle of carrying your USB data cable around to exchange files with a PC that has no PC side software, which is required to transmit or receive files.

Moreover, it is a hundred times faster than Bluetooth for transferring files between any device, thanks to it being cross-platform.

MX Player is a video player that supports almost all the primary video and audio file formats. It packs a lot of features including editing of subtitle timeframes, fast forwarding and volume control gestures, gestures for zooming in and out of a video, on-screen kid lock and many more.

Google Maps is a web mapping service for real-time GPS navigation, traffic, transit, and details about millions of people. It offers street maps, satellite imagery, real-time traffic info, short-cut route planning, etc.

The app covers accurate maps of more than 200 countries and territories. With the help of the Google map services, you can navigate an unknown place with ease. It is one of the essential Android apps.

In case you encounter problems with Maps like slow app speed or interface difficulty, you can check out Android Auto, another Google navigation app which automatically optimizes your whole device to cut out distractions while driving.

With over 100 million downloads, PicsArt is one of the favourite photo editing apps for Android. You will be overwhelmed by the number of options you have for customizing your photos.

It has a social network for sharing photos within the app. Its features include collage, drawing on photos, frames, stickers, free cropping, clone tool, tilt-shift, perspective changer tool and a lot more. The app is available for free with some in-app purchases and display ads.
