This app allows you to send messages to your contacts, share pictures, videos, music, voice notes etc. You can even have either an audio or video call without any hurdle at all.


I still don’t know why most people use browsers like Opera Mini. You know why? Cause the app is terrible when it comes to rendering an online interface. It has prided itself with the ability to get rid of most unique features on sites. It is a good browser to combat ads, but you will have to deal with its own ads.

If you want to have the best experience when browsing, Google Chrome is your best bait. What I love so much about Chrome is its ability to synchronize everything about you in one piece. You can save log in details, access so many account using one single account and so on. Not forgetting, its site rendering is the best so far.

As a student, this app always come in handy, especially when I see someone with a movie I feel is dope. What I do is open my xender and have the movie shared in the space of seconds.


There is no video that this video app cannot play. If there is, then it isn’t existing or perhaps, you are still using an old version of VLC. One thing I love about this app is; you can easily switch to any layout by just tilting your device to your preferred angle. You can also adjust the brightness without affecting the normal phone brightness. The most unique feature is being able to also add a subtitle file to my videos.

If you don’t have this app, then you have been limiting your experience. It is one of the best app you must have on your mobile smartphone.


If you are also taking pictures, then you need to have the best photo editing app on your phone. The best so far, with a lot of sophisticated features is picart. In fact, I just finished editing a photo with it. the common feature with I use mostly is its blur. I can blur my background a little bit, making the focus to be on the subject, which is me. It makes the picture looks more professional and cinematic.

This app comes with tons of features. You can app text, clipart, filters, icons, etc. For it to have over 100 Million downloads means it isn’t a childish app. It is very dope and I’m certain you will love it.

In case of events like theft, you don’t need to panic cause your important files are safe.
