A Few Great Utility Apps For Fire Phone
For the past two weeks I’ve been working hard on creating tutorials for you.
Now it’s time to come back to testing apps. Today I want to show you a few great utility apps for Fire phone which will let you really make the most of your time and your device.
What do you want to turn your Fire phone into? A calculator? A voice recorder? Or something else? Let’s start!
Important Information About Fire Phone Utility Apps
There are a few things you need to know before we move on to the apps:
- Android Apps. Almost all of the Fire phone apps you can find in the Amazon Appstore are Android apps which will work on most of Android phones. That’s because Fire OS is in fact a slight modification of Android. However, remember that it works only one way round, so not all Google Play apps (especially Googlewares like Gmail or Chrome) will run on your Fire phone.
- Price. The prices I give you are only approximate (that’s the price of the app at the moment of writing this article) and are subject to change without any notice. There are other variables that can influence the price of the app for you (e.g. your location or whether you are a Prime member).
- Free Apps & Ads. Most of the free games and apps display ads. To get rid of ads you can either buy a premium version of the app without ads or turn off the WiFi and Mobile Data on your Fire phone.
- Help Me Improve. I made my best to keep the descriptions of apps short, to-the-point and practical. All of the screenshots and videos come from my Fire phone. If you have any suggestions, feel free to contact me.
If you like some app , click either on its name or icon and you will go to Amazon where you will be able to download it straight to your Fire phone.
Voice Changer (FREE)
I’ve only recently discovered this app and I really love it. As the name suggests, Voice Changer lets you record your own voice and change it to have lots of fun with your family and friends.
You have many different effects to choose from: helium, cave, hexaflouride, robot, monster, drunk, minion, bee, child, church, fan, ET, smurf, walkie-takie, underwater, and others. The only disadvantage of the app are lots of ads when your Fire is connected to the Internet.
textPlus Free Text + Calls for Android Phones, Tablets + Kindle Fire + Fire Phone
To put is simply, textPlus Free lets you make calls and send messages to anyone in the US or Canada completely free of charge. It also lets you make cheap calls to anyone in the world and call & message other textPlus users via the Internet.
This is one of the best utility apps for Fire phone and a brilliant alternative to expensive mobile phone plans. textPlus allows you to make calls on WiFi or 3G or 4G connections. Remember that it won’t work without an active Internet connection.
Birthday Countdown is one of the simplest utility apps for Fire phone. As the name suggests, the app lets you remember the birthday dates for your friends, family or spouse.
All you need to do is set the date and the app will show you how much time is left (how many days, hours, minutes and secs) and remind you when the date is coming.
Watchdog Task Manager
You probably know many different app killers which have become very popular. The developers of Watchdog Task Manager suggest that there’s no point in blindly killing running apps.
Instead, you should monitor and manage them to make sure that no background app loses control and eats up your CPU resources. What’s more, this app will alert you when some app slows down your Fire and let you kill just this app.
Clean Master Phone Boost
This is yet another utility app for Fire phone. It lets you improve security, privacy and performance of you Fire phone.
It has features such as: Junk files cleaning (analyzing residual files and cache to free up storage in real time), Anti-virus (possibility of scanning apps and cleaning call logs, SMS/MMS messages), Memory boost (killing bad apps which make your device overheat or crash), and App manager (uninstalling or disabling preinstalled app, backing up apps).
My Alarm Clock
There are many alarm clock apps for Fire phone out there, but this one is probably the best.
What makes My Alarm Clock stand out are its looks and a variety of features and settings. You can wake up to your favorite music or pleasant sounds, check weather conditions , make use of a sleep timer falling asleep to chill out tunes, turn your Fire phone into a beautiful bedside clock and choose from a variety of stylish clock interfaces.
