August 27th is Just Because Day. To celebrate, be sure to check out these six apps to download just because you want something new.

In today’s society, phones have become lifelines. Our phones do more than just make important calls, they keep us connected 24/7. We store important documents and passwords on them. We use them to maintain our finances. Our smartphones are important to us. That being said, sometimes you just want to download a few apps for the fun of it! Thankfully, there are an abundance of those available for Android phones. Here is a list of six of the best apps to download just because!

Nova Launcher

Nova Launcher is an Android-exclusive app that puts complete design of your phone in your hands. Compatible with 4.1 and up, Nova Launcher allows users to customize the look and feel of a phone’s operating system, changing everything from font size to the number of apps that can appear on the lock screen.

Sure, all smartphones have camera and video recording capabilities, but sometimes you’d like a little more than just the ability to press record or drop a filter onto a video. That’s where VLC comes in. This video app supports a huge number of video formats and has plenty of adjustable settings as well as hardware acceleration that allows users to take full advantage of your phone’s processor. Plus, it is also a full audio player.

Solid Explorer

Everyone needs a good file browsing app; Solid Explorer does not disappoint. It supports most popular cloud services and even FTP, WebDav and more. It gives users the ability to create hidden folders, ZIP and RAR file extractions and various customization options. It works especially well thanks to its Material Design UI. You can download this app with a 14-day free trial and if you enjoy it, it only costs $2.99 a month. Not a bad price for the sheer amount of capabilities this app offers.


The popular browser extension is now available for Android phones. Come across a long article you’re interested in reading but just don’t have the time to at the moment you find it? Pocket is here to help. It lets you take any webpage and stash it away for later. It’s simple to use and extremely handy, especially as a free app.


Want a to-do list that actually makes getting your tasks done a little more interesting? Look no further than Wunderlist. Unobtrusive and easy to use, Wunderlist helps users keep track of  tasks along with due dates, reminders, notes, subtasks, and the ability to share and assign tasks to others. The free version supports most basic functions, while the pro-version is optimal for business-minded people.

PSafe Total

Of course we would be remiss to have a list of apps that didn’t include our very own PSafe Total. Though this might not be “just because,” but rather for the complete protection of your Android phone.

PSafe Total has fantastic features such as a memory booster that optimizes your data and speeds up your device, a CPU cooler that eliminates lag time, advanced protection that keeps your device safe from third-party uninstalls in case of loss or theft as well as maximizes privacy and much, much more.

After downloading a bunch of new apps on your Android device, it’s a great idea to install one that will make sure it’s protected and running to its fullest capabilities.
