The new year is just around the corner. Time to look back on the past year. Every DroidApp writer shares his or her most must-have apps of 2020. These are Paul’s favorites.
Must-have Android apps from Paul
My most indispensable apps have changed somewhat compared to last year due to the corona virus. This is of course because I have been working from home since March and therefore spend the weekends as much as possible. Just to a beautiful forest, a nice city or cozy to family.
For getting out and about, Google Maps is my favorite and indispensable app. Obviously super handy to navigate, but also to explore the area around the destination in advance. I find it super handy that Spotify is now integrated in Google Maps.
Because I use Spotify a lot on the road, but also when working from home, the app is also one of my indispensable apps. I tried YouTube Music for a short while but quickly got back to Spotify. I think this is the most pleasant app for playing my favorite playlists and albums.
Of course, WhatsApp is not missing in the list of most indispensable apps. Still the most popular messenger. I still think it’s a shame that WhatsApp doesn’t have a stand-alone app for your laptop or tablet, just like Telegram has. That would be a godsend for me, because I often switch phones to review.
Personally, I think Telegram is the nicest messenger app. It is more complete than WhatsApp, because you have the option to follow channels, for example DroidApp’s Telegram channel! As I mentioned above, it is also possible to install Telegram as a stand alone app on your tablet or laptop or other device.
To get through the evenings as a single, I watch a lot of Netflix. I like the app in itself, but every now and then I can no longer see the forest for the trees. So the great supply is actually a curse and a blessing. For the coming year I am especially curious whether there will be a real competitor for Netflix in the Netherlands.
