What are your 'must have' android or iOS apps?

Recommended Posts

I'm going to have a lot of downtime this week and next week at work due to all of our clients being at a national meeting so I decided it was time for me to clean up my phone so I put the stock rom back on it and rerooted it. As I was reinstalling my 'must have' apps. Those apps that are always the first ones you get when you try out a new ROM or whatever your reason was for wiping your device.

I'm not trying to just limit it to those first few apps that you install, if you have anything you think is worth a mention feel free to post it

These are always the first apps I install

  • Google Voice
  • Airdroid
  • Solid Explorer
  • Spotify
  • Camera 360
  • Bacon Reader
  • QuickPic
  • Chrome

Here are a few that I use fairly often

  • LinkedIn
  • SoundHound
  • Mint
  • Tweedle
  • Fing
  • XBox Smart Glass - To keep my Girlfriend from sitting in bed watching Netflix all day while I'm at work

iOS is a bit scarce. so here's mine:

Terminal (daddy needs a command prompt)

Metasploit (installable through command prompt)

Fing (Network Discovery)


iNet (Network Discovery & Portscanner)

WiFiFoFum (oldie - good for wardriving - do people still do this??? Useful for finding & locating networks nearby)

Have recently got my hands on a MK802 android stick, so looking for suggestions for that. :)
