These top paid Android apps are sure worth every penny you shell out for them. There is absolutely no dearth of applications in the Google Play store, but that’s why it’s all the more important to spend on the right contenders. So here we’re going to offer a helping hand to assist you with the task of optimizing your phone or tablet with alternatives to native software and keep you refreshed with some fun games too.
1 – Cut the Rope HD:
Feeding candy to the forever hungry Om Nom can get really addictive. A game complete with some innovative mechanics and realistic physics, it also earns brownie points for its high definition graphics and the adorable character.
11 different boxes and as many as 275 levels in the game are sure to help you kill boredom, when you have nothing better to do. And after you purchase the app, the developers promise to update it with new levels without charging you for the same.
2 – SwiftKey X Keyboard:
We understand how difficult typing on multi-touch displays can get, especially when you are making the move from a numeric keypad to these virtual QWERTY keyboards. That’s exactly why we’ve added SwiftKey X Keyboard to our array of paid Android apps.
Powered by the smart, natural language technology, it claims to understand how words work together and even predicts your next word. The multi-lingual application gets better with time and lets you personalize it using your posts on sites like Facebook, Twitter, Gmail and more.
3 – Tasker:
Tasker is one application that goes on to unleash all that your device is capable of doing. If you are bored of telling your smartphone what to do every time you plug in your headset, simply adjust the settings through this app and the phone will give you an option to launch any of your media applications, whenever it detects a headset. You can also create ‘contexts’ to automatically put your phone on silent or airplane mode for times when you wouldn’t want to be disturbed. Basically, it’s a virtual assistant that takes care of your phone, without you having to intervene, after all the settings are in place.
4 – Root Explorer (File Manager):
The fact that the developers of this app are ready to give you a refund if they are unable to solve your problems, really sets the bar high. And it certainly doesn’t fail to live up to the expectations. This highly efficient file manager works well with rooted devices as no Android file seems to be out of its reach, not even the elusive data folders. Some of its features include SQLite database viewer, text editor and the ability create and extract zip folders amongst a horde of other things.
5 – Android Office:
Wondering why we think this app deserves a mention in our lineup of paid Android apps, when there are a number of others flocking the Google Play store? Well, this tool seems to have earned a lot of praise from its users. Its intuitive features are what make it apt for all your needs related to MS Office documents.
You can create and edit word documents and even email them directly from within the application. The developers plan to introduce PDF support soon and it’s compliant with Excel documents too.
6 – Paper Camera:
Although most new phones are equipped with proficient snappers, Paper Camera should be included in the device for the kind of features it tags along. Basically, what the app does is, it animates the world around you with effects like sketch, comic book, neon, cartoon and many more.
And no, it’s not one of those editors that add effects to clicked images, but an app that paints them directly to your camera, saving you the hassle of having to edit pictures later. It is capable of taking high resolution images and lets you upload them to a number of social networking websites.
7 – PicSay Pro:
While the Paper Camera transforms your surroundings into a scene right out of a comic book, it still isn’t all that you would need to pacify the creative photographer in you. So turn your attention towards PicSay Pro, an image editor that’s compliant with smartphones as well as tablets running the Honeycomb platform. It allows you to enhance your pictures with various filters and also works with a stylus on devices that support one.
8 – XiiaLive – Online Radio:
