Top Android Apps for Dads

Being a Dad is a balancing act most of the time, trying to balance work, kids, family life, leading the family and having your own hobbies. Here are just a few of my favorite apps to help me do this.

Google Maps


Never get lost again!  With voice navigation, traffic, and some of the best maps around Navigation will get you where you need to go without having to ask for directions.

Drop box is a fantastic way to keep all your files organized and handy.  Acting as a personal hard drive in the cloud this app lets you access your pictures, music, or any other file from any where you have internet access.

Audible for Android

Audible for Android

I love reading.  Unfortunately between family, work, and school it can be very hard to find time to enjoy a good book.  That is where Audible come in.  Whether I am listening in the car or while working around the house I can “read” a good book while.

Pandora® internet radio

Pandora is one of the apps that I use on a daily basis.  At work or home Pandora provides hours of free music tailored to your preferences.  Create stations by artist, song or genre and start listening.

Skype – free IM & video calls


Not always being able to be home before my boys get to bed it’s nice to be able to say good night with them and see them. Skype let’s you be connected when you can’t be there.

Brightest Flashlight Free

Brightest Flashlight Free

This may be a simple app but it’s also one of the apps I use the most.  A flashlight is an indispensable tool, and what dad doesn’t love tools.
