Please don’t ask me for support, these are not my apps. I will not be forwarding support requests to their respective devs. I will also refuse any requests for free paid apps.
Some apps require special installation steps, please follow them to the letter.
Some apps only work on specific devices, ROMs, or Android versions and most of the following require a rooted device.
These are mainly for rooted devices and I’m not listing “fun” apps or “social” apps. Y’all can make your own decisions on those. The links are not necessarily to the free version. Some do have a free version.
Titanium Backup – Backs up apps and their data. The best backup solution I have found.
Link2SD – Moves APK, DEX, and library files to a second partition on your SD card.
FolderMount – Moves data from one folder to another then binds them to trick the system into using the new location. It is intended to move data from the internal SD card to the external SD card as some apps don’t let you chose where you want them to put their shit.
ROM Toolbox – Provides a centralized interface for some system tweaks like boot animations and DPI settings.
Tasker – Does chosen things when chosen things happen.
Nottach – You can change numerous visual settings on the stock ROM. Works only on the SGS4. It was written for AT&T’s variant, but also works on Sprint’s.
Xposed App Settings – Override multiple settings on a per app basis. Settings include font size, DPI, and resolution and you can revoke permissions. You can also get other Xposed modules from this same link.
