Android must have free applications

Since payed applications aren’t yet supported in Belgium I can only find free applications on the market. These are my favorites:

System tools

Barcode Scanner
This one you’ll need to scan the QR codes :D. You can also scan other barcodes but I didn’t find much information on the net on the ones I tried.

ASTRO File Manager
The best filemanager I found for android so far.

In fact this one ain’t available as a free app anymore. Only the beta was available so you’ll need to look for an .apk on the web if you really want this one for free. It’s a tool to change system properties based on location, date, time, etc. The properties you can change are dataconnection, wireless, flightmode, sounds, backgrounds, etc. There are several plugins available to extend the amount of events and properties.

Quick System Info
All you need to know about the system. Display processes, specs, logs, installed applications, etc.

Battery Widget
Can be placed on desktop (widget) and displays battery level. When selected an info screen with more details is shown.

Wifi Analyzer
Does exactly what you expect.


The best Geocaching tool I found so far. It lets you browse the caches nearby, show details of caches, show caches on the map, navigate to a cache (arrow), log when you found a cache, etc.

Doesn’t need much explication… you can set several styles.

GPS Status
Shows how many satellites are connected, min/max/avg speed, min/max/avg altitude, coördinates, etc.

My Tracks
Great for walkers and other outdoor sports. It tracks your route on a map. Also collects information (like GPS Status) and routes can be exported.

My Maps Editor
With this tool you can edit your google maps on your mobile.
