You get everything from a tabbed interface, dark theme, intelligent sorting, reminders about bookings, PNR status, SMS backup & restore, and much more. All in all, the SMS Organizer app deserves some space on our devices.

Evernote is a cross-platform note-taking utility for 2019 to take notes in a variety of formats, including text, photos, audio, video, sketches and more. A common name among the most useful apps, it is one tool you need to keep yourself organized in today’s hectic life.
It syncs across all your devices to facilitate workflow. Evernote also has home-screen widgets for quick access to your notes. I’d say that it is one of the essential Android apps for every user.
Although Google Keep is also a good Android app, Evernote’s aesthetically pleasing interface and overly amount of functions make it a very unique productivity app.
5. Alarmy (Sleep If U Can)
If you have a habit of skipping your morning alarm, this is one of the must have Android apps for your device. Alarmy has a unique way to break your morning laziness by laying out puzzles and challenges before you can snooze that annoying music. Even more, you can set the difficulty level of these challenges as per your preference.
The useful app also features a photo mode where you can turn off the alarm by clicking a snapshot of a registered place. Dubbed as “the most annoying app,” the alarm app should be part of your set of cool Android apps.

7. ES File Explorer
ES File Explorer is one of the popular Android file manager apps with all the necessary features. It comes with a Space Analyzer to help you free up space on your device.
Sharing media with other ES File Explorer users over WiFi is easy. ES File Manager also comes with an App Manager where you can uninstall/backup apps. You can even uninstall system apps with root privileges. It’s “Root Explorer” feature unlocks a lot of functionalities for rooted devices.
However, the app shows a lot of intrusive ads and is aimed at power users. I have recently discovered that Files Go from Google is also a very cool Android app for managing storage.
