You can tap any alphabet to get all the apps starting with that particular alphabet and launch your app. You can also add frequently used apps to your favorites by long pressing on your apps and have them easily accessed from the widget. In addition, the app also allows you to customize the widget from its appearance to the number of apps it displays and also supports external icon packs. It’s simple and useful overall, so try it out.

4. Swipe Back

Using this customization app, you can swipe on the edges of your screen to navigate back while using any app. The swipeable area can be placed on either side of your screen, and also its size, position, and transparency are adjustable, so it won’t make your screen look bad with its presence. It’s a handy way to navigate back on any app, without using the actual back button. If you don’t release the finger, the back button will be executed continuously, until you lift your finger. So, no more rapid tappings on the back button. Pretty simple and handy app.

5. Boot animations for Superusers

This incredible Android customization app lets you change the boring boot animation of your Android device for free and also allows you to have a new boot animation every time you reboot your phone. It offers several custom boot animations of various designs and concepts, all of which are free to install, but the catch is your device needs to be rooted to install them. So, get it and give it a go if your Android device is rooted. But consider backing up your system partition using a custom recovery before using the app to be safe if anything goes south while installing these animations. 

6. Modern theme launcher

8. Keys Cafe – Make Your Keyboard

Samsung’s Keys Cafe is one of the best-looking keyboards for Android if not the best. I get a lot of people asking me about the keyboard I use on my Samsung phone and how to install it. But it’s an open secret that it is a Samsung exclusive. However, you can get Samsung’s Keys Cafe on any Android phone for free. Install the keyboard app with the same name on the Play Store, launch it, allow all the required permissions, enable it, and then choose any of the six themes from the “Animated themes” section.

It’s not the same keyboard, but it tries its best to replicate the feel of Keys Cafe on non-Samsung phones with the keystroke effects and sounds. Along with keys cafe effects, you also get a huge set of various keyboard themes, plus you can create your keyboard theme from scratch. So, give it a shot if you are a Samsung’s Keys Cafe fan.

9. Flex: Multi-Speed Auto Scroll

If you like to scroll on social media to pass the time but feel lazy enough to scroll manually, this app is for you. You may have used automatic scroll apps before, but this one is special. It lets you automatically scroll through web pages, e-books, social media, and any app. You can select the apps you want to automatically scroll on. So as soon as you launch that particular app, an on-screen widget appears as an overlay with various controls from continuous scrolling up and down to the left and right page swipes.

The standout feature is that you can control the scrolling speed with the on-screen slider to your preference as it scrolls automatically. One more useful feature is that you can set timers for page scroll so that the app stays on the page for a while instead of scrolling through continuously. My favorite and most useful feature of the app is the jump to the top button, tapping on which you can go to the top of any page or app in a second without having to scroll back to the top manually. And most importantly, the app is ad-free. So, get it without fail.

10. Diffuse Live Wallpaper

Diffuse is an incredible live wallpaper app that makes the music album art into an audio-reactive dynamic fluid background. It blurs your current playing album art and displays it in an abstract, fluid-like manner in real-time. With the in-house solution Live Beats technique, the background also moves in sync with the beat. Plus, you can customize or fine-tune the animation details to your preference. The app works with almost all music players including offline music players, so, get it and make your home screen alive and vibrant. 

11. Floating Assistant

This handy customization app lets you have useful things floating on your screen, so you can access them faster. You can have several things floating on the screen for quick access, such as your favorite apps, and a few more quick toggles under an assistive touch such as a volume controller, flashlight toggle, phone locker, etc. It comes in handy on multiple occasions and for multiple purposes since it offers multiple options as overlays on the screen.

Having a few Bluetooth devices connected to our phones is common these days. But not being able to see the battery levels of all of them at a glance is somewhat inconvenient.

The widgets are customizable and adapt to the colors of your wallpaper since the app follows the material you theme. It offers a handful of widgets of different styles and shows the battery levels of up to 4 Bluetooth devices. So, try it if you are always anxious about the battery levels of your Bluetooth devices.

You can apply them as it is or customize them further to match the wallpaper.
