9 exclusive apps for Android that you will never find on iOS

Many of the people who opt for Android it does it for simple convenience. Not only because they are cheaper devices than those of Manzana, but also for all the possibilities it offers. The Android ecosystem has reached such a point that there are not a few "lifelong" iPhone and iPad users who decide to jump into the competition.

The reason? They can be several. From the aforementioned economic aspect, to an inherent prestige of the Cupertino brand that does not compensate all that it should. Or the simple fact of realizing that Android "is not the bogeyman."

Exclusive (and quality) applications for Android that we will hardly see on iOS

I have a couple of friends who in recent months have decided to switch to Android when it comes to renewing the terminal, and they both agree on the same thing: "Wow, it's not as bad as I thought." It will not be true!

The 2 have been quite surprised by the variety and quality of the apps that exist for Android. Although most mobile apps have versions for both operating systems, Google's still have some Exclusive premium quality apps that you can wear with pride.


Cerberus is one of the most complete anti-theft applications out there. It offers remote control to lock the device, locate and track, take photographs of the thief in case of theft, record audio from the microphone, control via SMS and much more.

Xposed Framework is a tool that allows us to install new features on our Android phone or tablet. It is not an application as such, but a bridge to install new modules that contain those new features.

Among the most popular modules or functions we find "One Tap Video Download", "Gravity Box", "Zoom for Instagram", or "AC Display". Requires root permissions. If you want to install the Xposed Framework, take a look at this interesting AndroidPit article.

Nova Launcher (and any other launcher in general)

Launchers or launchers are unheard of on iOS. These types of apps are one of the greatest exponents of customization on Android.

With a good launcher we can make the interface of our phone change and adapt 100% to our needs. Customization in its purest form.

Viral (and any other icon pack in general)

Icon packs come from the hand of launchers. If we are going to change the desktop, notifications and mobile navigation, we will also want to change those boring icons that come standard on Android. To be able to install this type of apps we have to have a launcher previously installed. From there, the Google Play Store has countless icon packs, paid and free, like this one Viral - Free Icon Pack.
