Android Apps Best Productivity Apps For Android

Smartphones are getting closer and closer to replacing our computers. They’re always on, always available and load apps much faster than your average program loads on a standard computer. From the most basic tasks to time management to advanced automation, your phone or tablet may save you a lot of time and effort. With the right set of productivity apps, you can easily write a report, access and edit documents stored on your office computer, create a handy to-do list, or review a PDF file. Since there are quite a few of them available on Android, for your convenience we’ve compiled a handy list of the best ones. Enjoy!

Note: Apps are in no particular order.


There are quite a few powerful office suites for Android and the Google-Owned QuickOffice is among the best. The app allows you to create and edit Word, Excel and PowerPoint files as well as view PDF documents. Thanks to tight integration with Google services, Quick Office can also access files stored in the cloud to open them or share via Google Drive or e-mail message.

All that is wrapped in a well-made interface that follows Android’s design language and is pretty smooth. What’s more, the app is completely free.

JotterPad X

JotterPad X was designed for students, writers, and developers as an advanced, yet easy to use writing tool. The app sports a good-looking interface that delivers distraction-free writing experience. There are no unnecessary buttons or bars, just the content. Once you’re done writing, you can save the document in a folder (notebook, if you will), or export it as PDF.

Other features include versions control, MarkDown support, keyboard shortcuts, Dropbox integration, various writing modes, and word counter.

qPDF Viewer

If you’ve installed QuickOffice or Adobe’s official Reader app, qPDF Viewer may seem like a third wheel, but it definitely is not. In our tests, qPDF Viewer displayed the most potential. It’s a reliable app for viewing PDF files. It performs very well, loads the files quickly, and comes with a bunch a features such as text reflow. Additionally, it allows you to add annotations, comments, notes, and images.

In a situation, when you’ll have to open and edit an important document, qPDF Viewer will prove useful.

Google Keep

There are tens of great note taking applications available in the Play Store, but Google Keep is our favourite. Developed by Google themselves, Keep allows you to write down your thoughts on the go as well as save long fragments of text, voice notes, lists, and images. Moreover, it is extremely smooth and has a colorful interface.

All notes saved and edited in Keep can be accessed later from the web or with the official Google Chrome app.
