Seeing that pretty much all of us are using some version of Android according to the thread "Which Phone is your Daily Driver". I thought it'd be neat to see what apps we use on a regular basis.

I'll go first.

---------------------------------------

BlackBerry apps. (I actually use all of them except for Password Keeper since it won't import from other clients.)
Enpass password manager
Microsoft apps (Word, OneDrive, Authenticator, OneNote)
XE Currency Pro
Skype
Unified Remote Full (great app to use as a touch pad for the PC)
DnB and Vipps (Norwegian banking)
Adobe Acrobat
Cloud Player (since Groove Music is no longer supported)
Today Weather
Purchased Apps (library of all my purchased apps and IAP's)
Lightroom CC, Snapseed, Dramatic B/W for imaging
Camera FV-5 (great for full manual camera mode) and Camera Zoom FX (great for quick pictures)
F-Stop gallery (great gallery)
Opera browser
SIM Card info (gives you information about your SIM and phone)
Hiya Caller ID (used to use TrueCaller but quit because I don't want to use their Phone / SMS app)
Android Wear
WiFi Analyzer by VREM Software Development (open source, no ads or IAP.)

For fun I have installed;
RoboVox (voice changer)
ShaderPaper (live wallpapers)
3D Parallax Backgrounds
Flippy Knife (great time killer)
PinOut (great pinball game with nice retrowave music)
Seedship (text scifi adventure game)

Mine's quite minimal, although I had some more on my Fujitsu Arrows M04 Premium.

I have Telegram for news on stuff I follow.
Google Maps is something I rely on time to time to go to a new place.
I have various browsers for various uses, but I only have Chrome installed at the moment on my Sharp Android smartphone since Firefox Focus was taking forever to download via 4G. (I think it might have to do with bad APN settings?)

I used to put various network tools to get information of the 4G / LTE network.

TextMaker HD has been wonderful on my Nougat Gemini.

Most of my stuff is pretty meat-and-potatoes, but two apps that might not be well-known but are worth their salt to generate more screen real estate is Granular Immersive which allows the custom hiding of system and status toolbars (it's the only one that works with no-root, though you have to use adb to set it up) and Status Bar Mini Pro which allows a conky-like custom display of device vitals across every screen.

Status Bar Mini Pro works very well with Granular Immersive. For instance, I have a full screen TextMaker, hidden status/system bars, but run clock, date, battery percentage on empty space of TM's title bar.

Still looking for an uptime app to run directly on status bar rather than widget/notification.
