7 Best Android (and iOS) Apps for 2020 Released in 2019
While 2019 may be over, it has brought us a handful of great apps that you will definitely use in the current year, too. These top-rated apps of 2019 cover almost every area of your everyday experience and include all kinds of useful tools. There is a secure browser, an e-mail manager, and even a tool for editing websites here, so everybody can find something useful in the list.
The list we've compiled features only the best Android apps 2019 has had to offer. But you may ask: what about apps for iOS and other operating systems? Don't worry — most of these apps have an iOS version, too. That means that our list doubles as the best iPhone apps 2019 list if you are interested in looking for suitable apps online. And now, let's get to reviewing those apps.
Although praised by many users, the Inbox app was closed by Google, and the problem of finding a decent e-mail manager for Android has suddenly reemerged for millions of phone owners. And it's Spark that seems to have taken its place. The app was already popular enough, but it was available only for iOS and macOS devices. However, the developers were quick to bring it over to Android.
Now, almost every device can run it, and you really should try it. Spark features all kinds of useful tools that help you manage your inbox, including the so-called smart prioritization system, powerful searching options, and so on. If you're looking for a reliable and powerful e-mail app, Spark should really be your app of choice. And yes, it's completely free — it doesn't even have ads.
The famous (or infamous — it really depends on your personal point of view) browser that has been known as one of the most secure tools to browse the Internet has finally made it to Android. Its first stable version for Android devices landed on the Play Store last spring, and it's been getting lots of updates ever since, despite the fact that the browser is free and doesn't have any ads.
Tor Browser allows you to browse onion sites — but that's not its only function. It also checks all of your traffic to make sure it's encrypted — this feature is especially useful if your data is personal or sensitive in any other way. If you care about your privacy, this app is what you need. And you don't have to know how to use it since the interface is really intuitive.
Infinity is an app designed especially to make browsing Reddit even more comfortable. You can use it to browse all of your favorite subreddits with a couple of additional tools without the need to open your Internet browser. The app features a lazy mode that makes the app scroll itself, so you literally don't have to do anything apart from reading.
The app doesn't have any ads, so this kind of endless scrolling won't be interrupted by an especially annoying ad. All in all, Infinity is a must-have app for every hardcore Reddit user because it allows you to experience it in the smoothest way ever. And the interface is really nice, so be sure to check it out.
There are lots of photo editors for Android — thousands, maybe. But few of them can match Scribbl when it comes to animations. This app allows you to simply draw all kinds of special effects on top of your photos that will come to life automatically. There are quality options that allow you to keep things modest if you want your creations to be as condensed as possible.
One of the latest updates has added tools to edit videos, as well. That means you can now use it for every bit of your visual content. And don't forget that Scribbl allows you to export your pictures and videos as stories or posts. The only problem with this app is that the ads can get a little annoying at times.
AnyList is a surprisingly powerful app for creating, editing, and managing your shopping lists. The iOS version of the app has been out for years, but the Android users have got it only last April. It was a real relief since it was always hard to find an app this useful that would sync across Android and iOS devices. Fially, you can use it anywhere you want.
AnyList features lots of flexible tools that allow you to create just about any list you can imagine. It can be a grocery list, a shopping list, or just a checklist for some of your chores — it doesn't matter: a list can be shared with your family and friends, saved, and organized in hundreds of ways. There's even an option to import and store recipes directly from different websites.
Chiaki is a free PS4 client that can be used to play any PlayStation 4 games remotely — all you need is a stable network connection. The type of your Android device doesn't matter, but the app is rather demanding in terms of connection quality. Generally, user reviews seem to be positive, and the fact that Chiaki is an open-source app is another big advantage.
While it was released in 2019, the app remains one of the best apps 2020 has to offer because of its frequent updates that really expand the list of available features. Now it supports a lot of controllers, and it allows you to import and export your settings to take them with you across different devices. All in all, it's one of the best PS4 remotes out there, so you better check it out.
You've probably expected to see at least one top rated dating app on the list, but we have decided to include a great Instagram tool instead. Milkshake is an app made specifically for Instagram users — it allows you to create stand-alone bio sites. These sites are created mobile-oriented already, so you don't really have to optimize them.
While there are not too many tools, the process of site creation is as simple as it can be. It's possible to create a mobile website in about 15 minutes using this app, and that's probably its most important feature. However, it's also worth noting that Milkshake is completely free, and there are no ads and no in-app purchases.
