5 essential Android apps that you can’t find on iPhone


Android has undoubtedly added much description to the term “smartphone” by being responsible for the outreach of smartphones to a very large extent to people across all divisions.

Several statistics reveal that smartphone usage is expected to cross a whopping 3.08 billion in 2016 and Android’s share in the achievement is estimated to be very immense. But still, the world always keeps bragging about iPhone devices. However, if you are an Android lover, I’ve made a list of apps to boast about Android in front of your iPhone-loving friends.

Here are five essential Android Apps that you can’t probably get on iPhone:


According to certain research and scientific discoveries, the blue light that is emitted from the display of devices can prevent a person from sleeping. This is not good especially when the kids at your home keep playing games on your mobile or tablet during bedtime. Twilight in your Android smartphone comes to the rescue in situations like that. It filters the flux of blue light emitted by your tablet or phone after sunset and shields your eyes with a soft and pleasant red filter.

A paid version of this app comes with two predefined profiles that will save you time from creating a new profile. The latest beta update iOS 9.3 comes with a default night shift mode that boasts a similar feature to Twilights for iPhones. But it will take at least a few weeks or months before a stable update of iOS 9.3 is launched globally.


Greenify is a lifesaver for many Android users. Although there are choices to limit the background processes by enabling the developer options, Greenify seems to be a better option than that as it allows you to force-stop all the unnecessary apps in a single click.
