Save time with efficiency-boosting Android apps

Your phone is now essentially your personal assistant — and like any aide, it needs the right set of tools to do its job effectively.

The good news? As an Android user, you’ve got no shortage of efficiency-enhancing options. Unlike other mobile platforms, Android affords you the opportunity to customize and control the core user interface to make it better suited to your needs. And while the more advanced UI-adjusting tools tend to be targeted at the power-user crowd, you don’t have to be a card-carrying geek to take advantage of what they offer.

Behold: six innovative apps that’ll empower your favorite high-tech helper and allow it to reach its full productivity potential.

Price: $2

Google is pushing Android toward a gesture-driven future — but even if you’re lucky enough to be running Android 10 already, you don’t have to limit yourself to the gestures Google gives you.

You can actually create your own custom gesture system right now with Edge Gestures. The app allows you to add all sorts of time-saving shortcuts into your device and make them work exactly the way you want, either as a supplement to Android’s own system-level gestures or as a standalone replacement.
