Today I am going to list the Top Android Apps in Nigeria, The Popular applications that can be found on most Nigerians Android Smartphones.
It is no news that Android smartphones is dominating Nigeria’s mobile market, Android phones are very cheap in the sense that you can get a brand new android smartphone as low as N10,000 and even below the price but the processing power might be different and you can also get fairly used android smartphones below N10,000 in Nigeria which is making Android phones affordable by everyone, even a 10 years old kid is using an Android phone which is not surprising at all. So let’s get back to business.
Today am going to share the top android apps in Nigeria installed and used by Android Smartphones, the most popular apps present on every Nigerians Android Smartphones.
Owning an android phone is a nice stuff to have because it makes you feel the essence of technology in your daily activities and to enjoy the gadget you have to install some applications you would need to interact well with your activities and sometimes make life easier by easing depressions and some of them are Games any way we will soon get to that. Android OS mobile phone gives you the ability to install applications that you find useful and it should not be too much, you don’t need to install every single applications present in Google Play Store because there are millions of applications in their directory but you should install the applications that are important to you and excess applications on your mobile phone could make your phone run-out of storage space to store incoming apps or to perform some system scheduled functions and can adversely make your phone very slow in processing application queries at this point you will notice your phone will be hanging, failing to launch some system apps which are important to the phone and even destroy your phone totally and rendering it useless, here is where a proverb comes in handy “Too Much of Everything is a Problem [Disease]”.
Here is the list of the 10 most installed and used android applications 0r I say 10 top android apps in Nigeria;
- Facebook :- This application is used by almost every android users, there is no doubt that everyone in Nigeria with internet access above 13 years owns a Facebook account. The Mobile Application is pre-installed on some new android phones available which reduces the stress of downloading it from the internet, the app is monitored by reliable Facebook team and updated if any bug is found in it.
- WhatsApp :- Tell me you don’t have WhatsApp on your android phone right now then I will tell you that you are really missing something, I have made some research concerning WhatsApp in the recent years and I noticed that most of the android users if not all have WhatsApp on their phone and the reason is the flexibility of WhatsApp to receive message even not connected online on WhatsApp when your internet connection is switched on even when your connection is not switched on the message will be in queue until you switch on your internet connection then you will receive the incoming message notification. WhatsApp is growing to the stage that it will soon take over the local messaging [SMS] and it now has a calling feature installed on the newer versions which gives you the avenue to call your contacts on WhatsApp when you and the contact has internet connection. Business in Nigeria is depending mostly on WhatsApp
- Flashshare/Xender:- Gone are the days when you will have to be sending file from one android phone to the other with the use of blue-tooth which is a very slow file transfer agent. Flashshare is becoming a must have app for any android user because of its superspeed nature of transferring files with the use of Wireless connection termed as WI-FI.
- Subway Surfers:- Well not everyone likes game but am going to say I have seen this game on many android phones and it’s also called an endless run race which eases depression, Subway surfers is one of the popular game out there that increases the desire to get more coins and keep getting High scores.
- Instagram:- Well you would say why is Instagram appearing before twitter on the list, recent stats shows that people enjoys more time while on Instagram than twitter, right now, Instagram is killing the social aspect.
- Gmail:-I should have added this application as the second on the list because it is pre-installed on any android phone but why I did not put it earlier on is because people do not use Gmail very well as they do with WhatsApp which is tagged instant messaging. Gmail helps you to read incoming mails on your mobile phone and the ability to reply the message with attachments if necessary.
- Candy Crush:- At first I thought this game was made for girls no until I saw my male friends playing it and were enjoying the fun in it then I also downloaded the game and I can say the game is nice and ease depression if you know how to play it.
- Operamini:- I am one of those that believe one day operamini will soon become Internet Explorer and let me tell you it is only in Nigeria and some other African countries where operamini is still been used, most of the themes developed are not for operamini anymore but i was surprise to see it installed on many android phones in which they are still using it.
- DU Speed Booster:- This app helps in optimizing your phone to be fast and helps in clearing junk files and cached files
- Twitter:- Yeah! Twitter made my list and one thing I love about twitter is the matured hashtag present in it, the ability to forward a message to a particular reader using the hashtag, example #TechHey..
