  • Android needs more native apps to help improve the user experience.
  • Here are seven apps iPhone users have that Google should seriously consider making.
  • Weather, Compass and Measure are just a few examples.



There’s something incredibly satisfying about booting up a great new Android phone for the first time and being greeted with a clean, bloat-free experience. I’ve long been critical of OEMs and cellular carriers mucking up brand-new devices with preinstalled apps and services the user never asked for.

That being said, I also believe that a solid suite of in-box apps are essential in rounding out a platform’s usefulness. While some will argue that calculator, note-taking, and voice memo apps are nothing more than unnecessary bloat, I consider them to be a hallmark of an operating system’s maturity. The iPhone, for all its faults, has a rich set of applications that cover most of the basics. Android phones are more hit or miss, with different manufacturers like Samsung baking in their own utilities piecemeal.

While some will argue that calculator, note-taking, and voice memo apps are nothing more than unnecessary bloat, I consider them to be a hallmark of an operating system’s maturity.


I’ve compiled a list of some apps that I would love to see Google itself take on and make available across the breadth of the Android ecosystem.
