There are literally millions of apps available on both iTunes and Google Play. Most of these, however, are duplicates. Most developers would want to have an iOS and an Android version of their apps so that they could corner both markets.
But there are some that are exclusive only to Android. We have already given you two top apps that you could install only when you have an Android device here. Here are some more:
You may think that you can only tap in your message on your Android device. Not really. Because you have Swype. You can literally Swype your fingers over the letters to form the word you want. So instead of tapping, you can just swipe all over the keyboard. The premise is that it is going to be quicker than tapping, even when you have predictive input turned on. The app developer promises that you can input more than 40 words per minute.
If you are not comfortable swiping away, you can still tap in your input, or dictate your message to your phone. If you want to use Korean or Chinese characters, you can just write the characters on your screen.
You have a lot of things on your Android device. Sometimes, you just want an easy way to search for things. Enter Google Gesture Search. This free app allows you to find anything on your device just by drawing on your screen. So for example, you drew a D on your screen, it will show you a list of apps, contacts or files that have the letter D in it.
The best thing about this app is that it records your search history and learns from it, so it gets better as you use it.
There are more mobile apps that are exclusive only to Android powered devices. Stay tuned for more!
