Top 5 must have apps for rooted android smartphones

Root Android PhonesSo you have rooted your android phone. Now this article covers what all applications are a must try after you have rooted. We have created a list of best 5 apps for rooted android smartphones.

1. Titanium Back up – The ultimate back up app

Titanium back up is the one app which I personally think should come with Android itself. The app lets you back up all your current apps along with the configuration/data and then sync it to cloud storage. That’s not all, the app lets you delete system apps(bloatwares), move apps, freeze apps(prevent apps from running) etc. Upgrading the app is totally worth it, if you ask me.

The app will let you flash the latest version of CWM(custom recovery) too. Here are the full list of features:

3. Root explorer or ES File Explorer File Manager

A file explorer which can browse to your devices root is an essential app if you have rooted your smartphone. There are mainly 2 very popular applications for that, they are Root explorer and ES File explorer. Both these apps are pretty good at what they do. With root explorer, you will get a a file explorer with one of the most simple and minimal interface. This one is perfect for those people who like minimal designs, but will cost you. There are no free versions for the app. But if you ask me, its worth paying for. I am an happy customer.

Now if you’re going for ES file explorer, you will get an app with a lot of inbuilt features like task killer, cloud storage client etc. This app is free too.
