I am recommending these Android apps to students because I make use of them every day. They are part of what makes my Android device functional. There are thousands of apps out there and I have a few more installed apps but I prefer these ones because they stand out.

Are you a secondary school student, undergraduate, graduate or working class You need these apps on your Android device. Before you install any app on your Android device, you should try to find out if the app will be useful or wasteful; Yes! some android apps are wasteful; consuming device space and engaging students in time wasting and irrelevant activities.
